I believe our air quality is threatened by the proposed Cherry Point coal export terminal. Last Friday I was kite boarding across Bellingham Bay and got to a point where I was breathing diesel exhaust fumes from a crude oil tanker anchored in the bay. I was directly downwind of the ship and about a half mile in distance from it. These ship engines are always running, even when they are at anchor. They pollute our air with diesel exhaust fumes and particulates that have been proven to cause cancer. If the Cherry Point coal export terminal is approved there may be 487 ships per year coming to the dock to load coal bound for China. That's more than nine ships per week. Add to that the 126 coal trains per week, times five engines per train, which means 631 diesel train engines per week. You can see that our air quality is severely threatened by diesel engine exhaust. Two hundred of our local doctors are opposed to the terminal for this reason. We all need to act now. Please come help us stop this threat. Let's keep our air clean and our county beautiful.
