Great new article in #TheMountainMail covers a recent BLM public lands flyover hosted by @EcoFlight and Wild Connections: “Worries About BLM Management Plan Prompt Fly-over of Area; Public Comment Deadline Set for Friday.” This article focuses on Areas of Critical Environmental Concerns (ACECs) in the planning area, and how @usinterior has brazenly slashed BLM Colorado’s Royal Gorge proposed 101,500 acres of ACECs to just 46,300 acres, well below current management, in the plan’s preferred alternative. BLM National and @usinterior have slashed over 230,000 acres of #BLMWild proposed protections by Colorado’s Royal Gorge Field Office, part of a nation-wide assault on #yourpubliclands to open them up for oil & gas development. BLM’s preferred alternative currently opens up 98% of BLM ECRMP #publiclands to oil & gas development, despite the BLM finding 85% of these lands to have no or low oil & gas potential.
