USA: President Bush Aims to Destroy Utah Wilderness In His Final Days – Immediate Action Required

emailredrock174

Dear Mark,This morning I appeared at a Congressional press conference to announce that NRDC is filing suit to block the giveaway of 110,000 acres of Utah’s Redrock wilderness to oil and gas companies.

This disastrous auction is scheduled to take place in just two days — on December 19th — as a parting gift from the Bush-Cheney Administration to their friends in the oil and gas industries.

 

At stake are world-renowned vistas near Canyonlands and Arches National Parks, as well as near the Dinosaur National Monument. Even parts of Desolation Canyon, which have been proposed for national park status, will be on the auction block.

The highest bidders will earn the right to turn vast tracts of pristine wilderness into industrial wastelands.

You and I must stop them — and this NRDC lawsuit is our last, best chance to do so. Please make an

I don’t have to tell you how terrific NRDC’s track record has been over the past eight difficult years. Thanks to your support, we’ve repeatedly staved off the Bush Administration’s relentless drive to drill in some of our nation’s last wild places.

But it’s all on the line right now. We simply can’t stand by and let them plunder our natural heritage during Bush’s final hours in office.

They are racing to complete these land deals before Inauguration Day — which would make the Redrock sales difficult to reverse.

That’s why NRDC is responding swiftly and decisively in court. And it’s why we are counting on you to

Once it’s drilled and destroyed, our Redrock wilderness can never be restored.

 Thank you.

Sincerely,
Robert

P.S. With only two days left until the auction — and one month until Inauguration Day — NRDC will be working through the holidays to fight this case in court.

I am sorry this is all chaotic, I just had an encounter with dog catchers, I begged them to give me two puppies that were in the van alone, and one of the shinters made jokes at me asking me, asking me to go out etc.  They then led me to believe they would give me the puppies, but then they just went, leaving me crying in the street.  Another lady saw it and felt sorry that I was crying and she begged the shinters too, but nothing.
