Comment on Longview coal export terminal

The biggest potential impact of our state on climate change is not from our own emissions but from the emissions we may facilitate elsewhere, for instance through proposed new coal-export terminals at Cherry Point and Longview.  The Washington Department of Ecology has announced the dates of scoping for the Longview proposal, during which time it will seek comments on what subjects will have to be analyzed in the proposal’s Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).  It is critically important that public comments call for consideration of climate-change impacts.
