Experts To Detail Full Scope Of Bush Assaults On U.S. Public Lands Attacks, Giveaways Include National Parks, National Forests, Other Public Lands Coast-to-Coast; Rewriting the Rules to Put Drilling, Logging, Mining Interests ahead of the Public Interest

      Washington - The broadest and most aggressive assault in history on America's public lands is currently being driven by the Bush administration and its allies in Congress. To help reporters realize the entire range of legislative and administrative threats to America's public land heritage, a team of experts will conduct a press briefing Thursday, February 27.

      The aim of the briefing is to enable journalists to obtain a full picture of the types of threats already underway or being planned, and to gather information and expert resources to assist in coverage of these issues as they come to a head in the next few weeks and months.

      Dozens of issues will be fought during the coming year. Among them are schemes to lease millions of acres of America's public lands to oil and gas interests; give timber interests greater control over our National Forests; let snowmobiles and a new coal-fired power plant foul the air of Yellowstone National Park; cut the public's right to a meaningful role in environmental decision making; hand over huge swaths of National Parks, Forests and Refuges to states and local interests; weaken standards for defining wilderness areas; threaten recovery of Northwest salmon runs; weaken wildlife protections; allow drilling in sensitive wildlife areas of the western Arctic; and many more.

Listen to the crybabies whine!  Perhaps they want their diapers changed also!!!  Boo Hoo!!!!

PLEASE  FORWARD  TO  YOUR  LIST.   THANK  YOU.
