Oil-shale & Tar Sands in Colorado, Utah & Wyoming! PLEASE SAY NO!!!

2 posts / 0 new

Millions of acres of public land in Colorado, Utah and Wyoming are being considered for oil-shale and tar-sand development, the dirtiest energy in the world.

We need your help to tell the Bureau of Land Management to reject this outrageously destructive proposal.

Oil-shale and tar-sand development would consume vast amounts of Colorado River water, which is already running dry. It would destroy thousands of acres of habitat, threaten endemic plants with extinction and accelerate global warming with massive energy inputs and CO2 emissions. Between worsening global warming and the extinction crisis, it's hard to imagine a worse use of public land.

Take action today to tell the BLM to reject this absurd proposal, which flies in the face of sound fiscal, social and environmental policy.

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.
