Stop climate calamity on Colorado public lands

Action: Climate Change

October 17, 2016   Action Alert ID# 438

 

A scientific report released in October shows that meeting the Paris Agreement's climate targets ratified by President Obama will require no new fossil fuel development beyond what's already under production.

But on our public lands -- including Bureau of Land Management lands in western Colorado's Uncompahgre region -- business as usual continues. The BLM wants to allow even more coal mining there while opening vast new areas to oil and gas fracking over coming decades.

In fact, despite the urgent need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, every alternative in the BLM's new draft management plan would increase such emissions over baseline levels. And none of the alternatives would limit fossil fuel production in any way -- every alternative would allow more leasing, fracking and drilling for oil and gas.

It's time for the BLM to bring forward public lands policies that align with rather than undermine our nation's critical climate goals.
