It's supposedly an energy bill, but the North American Energy Infrastructure Act of 2016 contains a lethal dose of anti-wildlife amendments that will lead to dead wolves, dead bears and the destruction of many important wildlife protections.

It's supposedly an energy bill, but the "North American Energy Infrastructure Act of 2016" contains a lethal dose of anti-wildlife amendments that will lead to dead wolves, dead bears and the destruction of many important wildlife protections.

And while pro-oil, pro-coal, climate change denying provisions are despicable, the anti-wildlife measures are equally catastrophic.

Letter Text
Dear Senator,

As one of your constituents and a Defender of Wildlife, I strongly urge you to reject outright the House passed substitute to the "Energy Policy Modernization Act of 2016," (S.2012). The House bill is filled with ideological attacks on our public lands and wildlife. It in no way provides a reasonable basis for discussion of a sound energy package.

The bill represents little more than an invitation to undermine wildlife conservation, public lands and bedrock environmental laws and protections. It also fails to address, and in some provisions completely undermines, our ability to deal with climate change.

Consideration of House passed S. 2012 would open the door to provisions that strip protections for endangered species, block efforts to crack down on the illegal trade in African elephant ivory, bar conservation measures for wolves and bears on over 100 million acres of federal land in Alaska, severely limit public involvement and judicial review of energy projects and upend management of our national wildlife refuges, parks, forests and other public lands.

This is not a serious energy bill. Instead, it is a bloated bundle of widely condemned provisions that the House could not get through the Senate as stand-alone bills. America wants an energy bill that proactively addresses climate change and a sustainable energy future, not one that throws every harmful ideological scheme that comes up at the wall in hopes that something sticks and gets passed.

I urge you not to reward the House's unconstructive and underhanded approach and to reject outright the House passed S. 2012 legislation.

Thank you for your consideration.
