INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

Big Coal and the City of Los Angeles are threatening Bryce Canyon National Park. They've proposed building a 3,500 acre coal strip mine right next to the park to extract coal to power L.A. If built, the mine would turn southern Utah into an industrial zone -- jeopardizing the park, tourism, and the health of local residents.

Instead of destroying a national park to create dirty energy from coal, the sun-drenched city of Los Angeles should create its own solar energy. Right now, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is accepting your comments on the strip mine proposal.
