Coal is safely used and transported all over this planet. This export terminal should not be viewed or studied as if it is a major departure from work that has been happening for centuries.
Basic economic principles already tells us that not one ton more of coal will be used globally because of exports at Millennium; supply routes have no effect on demand. Keep it realistic. Keep it local.
The important thing is that the concerns people have of the proposed project that Millennium Bulk Terminals is offering will be addressed responsibly. Exporting at Millennium is needed now to bring a tremendous amount of good paying jobs and increase tax revenue to the local area. I ask that you keep the permitting process at an expeditious manner. Thank you.
