Yes.· This will be very short.· I believe the environmental impact statement should consider the full impact of exploration, drilling and production, plus the eventual combustion of fossil fuels on the environment.

With our climate at a tipping point and air quality in the Uinta Basin already exceeding federal standard, a four-fold increase of fossil fuels production along with exploration and drilling will contribute considerably to the greenhouse emission and climate change.· And that's all I have.· Thank you.
