Monday (Nov. 15) is the last day to comment on the Bush administration’s unbelievably awful proposal to overturn the Roadless Area Conservation Rule. You can send comments directly to the feds here. Or, you can submit a comment through the Wilderness Society, who will cc your governor, here. If you’re not yet convinced that scrapping the Roadless Rule is a manifestly bad idea, the Wilderness Society has the top ten reasons. They’ve also got a fact sheet on roadless areas in various states. They’ve also got a handy chronology of the rule’s history. Come to think of it, the Wilderness Society is all over it. You should be too.
