Focus:Environment
Action Request:Petition
Location:United States

Ever since G.W.Bush signed into effect legislation that allowed our public parklands to be mined and logged,its been open season on our  public lands.Citizens have had to fight numerous obscene propositions from land rapists who want to make a quick profit off of their communities natural assets-and leave those communities with a polluted wasteland to deal with once all the lands riches have been sucked up.Then what few jobs the mining/drilling/logging generated vanish-and the community sure can't count on tourist dollars anymore-not when the state forests folks came to see have been cut down,and the rivers anglers came to fish are dead from toxic mine waste runoff.And those scenic views are now gone because the hills were ground up for coal-who buys postcards of reclaimed mining sites?And of course these companies wont pay for the health problems folks in the afflicted communities get from the contaminated local water supply-or the poisoned crops they harvest(if crops still grow)The outlook remains grim.A copper mine dump proposed on over 3,000acres of Coranado National Forest(home to endangered ocelots and jaguars).A uranium mine proposed for the Grand Canyon(I'm sure tourists will still continue to visit canyons filled with radioactive rubble!)I doubt the companies involved will make up the income shortfalls for each area whose environment and economy they devastate! PLEASE SIGN THESE PETITIONS;(and if you find them mysteriously closed,inquire why-ive seen some closed shortly after  being posted-with only one or two signers-and they were always political hot potatoes-so yes,i do suspect cyber monkeyshines!)

Our current political climate is bad and getting worse.Since the Patriot Act\'s passage and apparently eternal renewal,our civil rights have vanished faster than an ice cube on a hot griddle! Cops have killed over 5,000 US citizens with unbrindled poli...
