The proposed Uinta Basin Railway would be a train wreck for our air, wildlands, climate and communities. This multi-billion-dollar boondoggle would ruin more than 10,000 acres of habitat for migratory wildlife and endangered species while worsening the climate crisis.
But you can help stop it.
The Surface Transportation Board has released this project's draft environmental impact statement for review by the public — including you. But the board is only accepting comments until Jan. 28., so you need to take action now.
Oil and gas extraction are already poisoning the Uinta Basin, harming people and wildlife. The proposed railway would make things much worse — in fact, it could quadruple crude-oil extraction while tearing up habitat for species like the greater sage grouse and endangered Barnaby ridge-cress.
Tell the Surface Transportation Board to stop the Uinta Basin Railway in its tracks.
