Moving this project forward is important to me, my family and my community.
Stopping the coal terminal will not stop Asia from importing coal, but it will stop them from using high quality coal mined in the United States. Other suppliers on the market will fill this demand with coal that has increased mercury, sulfur and nitrogen oxides. During the permitting process, officials should remember the fact that not one ton more of coal will be used globally because of this project, and the net gain in greenhouse gas emissions is insignificant.
Thanks for considering my comments.
