Yes.· I don't have a prepared statement, and I'm speaking only for myself.· I -- I am
speaking in favor of the No-Action Alternative. I think this is a really devastating idea to put a rail line in.· And I think that there are better ways to move this crude to processing and I -- I really -- I -- I think that devastating effects on the environmental are just paramount to put a rail line through this area, especially through sage-grouse lek and across the streams and on and on and on.· And environmentally, I think it is bad, even for the humans.· And I'm just --
[audio distorted] that money has been given towards this project as supposedly a means to mitigate mineral impacts on the -- on the residents of the area. Because, in truth, this is -- I don't see how in any way, shape or form this is mitigating any impacts, economically or otherwise on any residents in the area. In fact, it's -- it's doing an opposite effect of imposing what is proposed and posing terrible effects upon the environment and also have terrible effects on the environmental health of people in the area.· And that concludes my comments.· Thank you.
