End coal leasing on our public lands

Action: Climate Change

July 6, 2016   Action Alert ID# 395

 

Coal is the most widespread and carbon-intensive fossil fuel in use today, a badge that carries no honor. Burning it contributes to, and intensifies, global food and water insecurity, heat waves and other extreme weather events, coastal flooding, Arctic sea-ice melt, coral reef loss and wildlife extinction.

More than 40 percent of all U.S. coal comes from public lands, primarily the Powder River Basin of Wyoming and Montana. A little-known fact: Approximately 95 percent of known U.S. coal reserves are unburnable and must stay in the ground to meet our climate commitments.

Decisions made today about the national coal program will have consequences for our energy and climate future for decades to come.

Urge the Obama administration to evaluate and quantify all the costs and consequences of continuing coal leasing -- on climate, health, lands, rivers and wildlife. Now's the time to phase out coal leasing on our public lands.
