Submission Text
The environmental study should move forward in a timely manner. Please allow me to provide my comments in regards to the draft EIS. I support Millennium Bulk Terminals site in Cowlitz County. These trains are no different than the coal cars we’ve transported through our state for many decades. In reality, not one ton more of coal will be used globally because of U.S. exports, and the net gain in greenhouse gas emissions is insignificant. If we don’t build these terminals, energy suppliers will just look elsewhere for their supply! Those who care about the environment as well as those who care about jobs can get behind this project. Thank you for allowing me to comment and please don't delay in moving forward on Millennium’s application.
