Please do not build the Longview Terminal! Coal dust, greenhouse gases from coal use and the attendant climate change, and the entire ecosystem of the Columbia Gorge and River are all issues of great concern. Why, in this day and age, with all of our awareness of damage already done to the environment, is yet another project being pursued which adds to the defilement of our beautiful states of Oregon and Washington and the entire Northwest? Just this morning the paper announced the derailment of an oil train in the Gorge. Can we please put the brakes on the coal trains? Let's develop alternatives in energy, and support and continue to expand the one's that are already out there! Let's have some sanity and respect for the planet!
