Sweeping environmental review for Cherry Point coal port

State and county taking responsible action

I am heartened that the Washington Department of Ecology will step up to the task shirked by the Army Corps of Engineers. [“State plans sweeping review of coal port,” page one, August 1.]

Limiting the environmental-impact study to the export terminals alone would have ignored impacts to communities all along the rail lines, and in fact to all Washingtonians, as the exported coal is turned into carbon pollution overseas.

It’s good to know that our elected officials are listening and capable of taking responsible action.
