Initiative: Uinta Basin Railway EIS
Attachments: No Attachments
As a citizen of Utah and frequent recreational user of the lands in question, I implore you to reject any permutation of the railway proposal. The OEA draft EIS should make this decision obvious and emphatic. The grave and persistent impacts on waterways, ecosystems, and wildlife the OEA foresees are, if anything, understated. And this we would sacrifice for what? Fewer jobs than the burgeoning green energy sector generates in a year? The extraction of fuels we need to proactively eschew if we're to leave our children a habitable planet? Fuels that already shorten our lives and whose market value is on an irreversible downhill slide? Please add my name to those of Utah citizens who strenuously oppose this project. Thank you for your kind attention to these words.
