I am sincerely and firmly against the proposed Uinta Basin Railway (UBR). If we build this railway, it will allow more production and destruction by the industries that actively poison us and our beautiful state. As I read "shippers would use the proposed rail line primarily to transport crude oil from the Basin to markets across the United States" it simply reinforces my fears. As a professional skier and an avid climber, I truly believe in the preservation of our state's national forests and natural resources!! I believe we need to protect ourselves and our land from the devastation caused by refining and mining industries. Already, our air quality is unsafe for sensitive populations and forest fires are at an all-time high. I beg the OEA to reassess the potential harm that the UBR will inflict on everyone living here.
