>While much of the nation's attention is focused on
>other matters, the Bush administration continues to
>move to dismantle some of our most important national
>forest protections. By eliminating environmental review
>and public involvement, their latest proposal would
>make it easier to log, mine, and build roads in some
>of America's most pristine national forests.

>With our national forests in limbo, we need your help.
>
>This new proposal by the US Forest Service would especially
>affect forests intended for protection by the Roadless
>Area Conservation Rule, one of the most popular conservation
>policies in decades, which the Bush administration
>is attempting to undo.
>
>To stop these environmental rollbacks, we need your
>help. Thanks to your efforts, in the past three months
>more than 650,000 individuals have sent messages to
>the US Forest Service calling for our last wild national
>forests to be protected from logging, mining, and drilling.
>
>America's national forests are among our nation's most
>precious resources. They provide a haven for wildlife,
>source of clean drinking water, place for solitude
>and recreation, and a heritage for our children.
>
>Please help save America's last wild places. In order
>to submit your comment just reply to this email, or
>visit:
>http://actionnetwork.org/campaign/nepa_regs
>to submit your official comment to the Forest Service
>and help protect our last wild national forests from
>commercial logging, mining, and road building. Because
>once these forests are gone... they're gone forever.

>America's national forests are one of the country's
>most precious resources. Our forests are a haven for
>wildlife, source of clean drinking water, place for
>solitude and recreation, and a heritage for our children.
>But now, the Forest Service is proposing, once again,
>to rollback critical protections for our national forests,
>by making it easier to log, mine, and build roads in
>some of our forests' most pristine areas.
>
>If adopted, this new directive would allow commercial
>activities in our national forests, flatly prohibited
>by one of the most popular conservation measures in
>decades -- the Roadless Area Conservation Rule. More
>than 2.2 million Americans have taken the time to submit
>public comments in support of this forest conservation
>policy, which protects our last untouched national
>forests from commercial logging and most road building.
>
>
>America's national forests need national protection.
>This includes appropriate environmental review and
>public involvement in any decision regarding roadless
>areas. Accordingly, I strongly oppose this proposed
>directive.
>
>Please consider these as official comments.
