Document - Oil Shale and Tar Sands Resources Comments


Environmental protection and the conservation of key recreation areas serve as an important economic driver in Utah, Colorado, and Wyoming. More diversified recreation economies have taken the place of areas that were formerly dependent on resource extraction. Furthermore the America’s Great Outdoors Initiative specifically recognizes the economic value in protecting these lands for recreation. It is critical that this initiative be mindful of the extremely valuable recreation resources found in the PEIS planning area and that the FEIS include restrictions so that any future oil shale and tar sands development does not irreparably harm recreation resources and their viewsheds.
