BBC World News recently featured the North Fork Valley’s fight to protect our public lands from irresponsible oil & gas development. In a segment focusing on climate change, BBC highlights the Trump Administration’s attempts to open ever-increasing acres of our public lands and wild places to energy development, rollback environmental protections, and reduce public input in land management decisions. Check out the video from BBC News (courtesy of our friends at The Wilderness Society) featuring some familiar faces and places, including local rancher and outfitter Tony Prendergast, WSCC Executive Director Patrick Dooling, and Representative Scott Tipton.
The US needs to reduce the use of fossil fuels to fight the #ClimateCrisis — drilling our public lands and endangering our precious ecosystem is clearly a step in the wrong direction. 📹: @BBCNews. pic.twitter.com/VbwrsL4Zzw
