The National Parks Conservation Association is one of five organizations that filed a National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) challenge to the recent approval to expand Alton Coal’s mine near Bryce Canyon National Park. The lawsuit against the Trump Administration, according to Cory MacNulty, associate director of NPCA’s Southwest Region, “is focused on the impact of burning that coal and the pollution that would result, particularly mercury pollution; we are also very concerned that the BLM didn’t really analyze and quantify the social cost of increasing carbon emissions as they burn that coal; and then they didn’t really look at the cumulative impacts of climate change.”
Tonight’s featured poet: Jesse Parent.
