Draw the Line: No coal mining in our roadless forests

Action: Wildlife Conservation

December 12, 2016   Action Alert ID# 458

 

In western Colorado, amid some of our country's most beautiful roadless forests, there are plans afoot for destructive coal mining -- but we have a last chance to stop it. Help shut down Arch Coal's bid to destroy public lands for profit and send a clear message to the incoming Trump administration about where we stand.

Urge President Obama to uphold protections for this roadless area.

Right now these public lands are protected by the Colorado Roadless Rule. But under a loophole the U.S. Forest Service is now proposing, 65 miles of new roads across 19,000 acres of wild forest could be bulldozed. A beautiful place could disappear -- a place that's home to bears, elk, goshawks and lynx.

The climate costs attached to this plan are also astounding: The Forest Service's own analysis concludes it could add millions of tons of carbon dioxide pollution to our atmosphere and cause as much as $3.4 billion in damage to the world's economy and environment.

Act now to urge President Obama to protect his climate legacy and our wildlands by keeping Colorado roadless forests closed to coal mining.
