Cienna and the Stranger, thank you so much for doing your part to make more people aware of this dangerous environmental and public health threat.
Please comment on this project at http://www.eisgatewaypacificwa.gov/get-i…
by January 21. Your comment is possibly even more important than your vote in the 2012 election because the committee has to read each comment and respond to each of your concerns before determining whether to allow this project. If you raise a new issue, the committee is legally obligated to consider that issue. Even if you think you have the same ideas that everyone else does, your comment is very important because the more people who speak up against the coal trains the more power local government organizations and politicians will have to stand up against the big coal companies.
You do not have to be 18 years old to comment. If you are a teacher (or if you know a teacher), you can ask each student in your entire class to comment for a homework assignment. If you are a parent you can ask your child to comment. This is our chance and the clock is ticking. Speak now (by January 21) or forever hold your breath.
