Since Skagit County’s environmental review is only about potential environmental impacts

that occur on Shell’s property, the environmental impacts of oil train disasters en route will not

be considered.  Please insist that the Skagit County join with our state agencies to require

a Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS), which will consider the potential

ecological impacts that 100-car oil trains can have on our environment.
