    If someone looks seriously at all impacts, it's a no brainer that this is a bad idea.  The fact that the president is publicly discussing impacts, that they are in scope of consideration, that's important.

    In a similar case, the applicants for the coal export terminal in Cherry Point WA have insisted from day 1 that the scope of evaluation should be limited to their property boundary.  Why?  Because they know that when all impacts are considered, the idea looks worse and worse.
