Southern Colorado's HD Mountains are rich with ponderosa pine forests, Mexican spotted owls and ancient American Indian sites. Yet hanging over the region is the largest patch of methane pollution in the United States, discovered recently by NASA scientists.
To make matters worse, the U.S. Forest Service now proposes to let the fossil fuel industry drill on an additional 6,000 acres within the HD Mountains east of Durango. And not just anywhere -- the plan includes drilling in protected roadless areas.
We need your help stopping this proposal. More dangerous drilling on our public lands will only deepen the climate crisis. And the industrialization that comes with such development will ruin remote wildlands and habitat -- values that are rare, and difficult or impossible to replace.
