Bush to Open America's Last Roadless Forests to Logging

Undermines Another Environmental Protection, One He Had Promised to Uphold.

TAKE ACTION and comment on this outrageous broken promise

//forests.org/action/america/

In the largest environmental roll-back of the modern era, the Bush administration has repealed the Roadless Area Conservation Rule which protected America's remaining large natural forest legacy. Despite repeatedly promising to uphold national protections for America's last large roadless forests, his policy places at risk some 58.5 million acres of America's national forest wilderness to destructive road-building, logging and drilling. Bush's "opt-in" approach to roadless management guarantees no real, long-term protections for roadless areas. Opening huge swaths of roadless forests to more clear-cutting and old-growth logging will have dire consequences for clean water, wildlife habitat, fisheries and forest ecology.

Outrageously, America's taxpayers will pay to destroy America's forest legacy, bearing the cost of building new roads into wild forests in order to provide logging trucks and drilling rigs access to the public's resources. Industries that opposed protections for roadless areas on National Forests have given nearly $25 million in campaign donations to President Bush and the Republican Party.

The Bush proposal is open to public comment for the next 60 days.

During two earlier public comment periods nearly 95% of the 2.5 million comments supported the roadless policy. We need to let the administration know that the public wants our national forests protected - not given away to corporate special interests. Please tell the Bush Administration yet again how much America and the world values large, natural and roadless forests; and how the proposed new Roadless Rule jeopardizes the nation's last wild forests.
