As it heads out the door, the Bush administration is handing the keys to our national forests over to the mining, timber and oil and gas industries. Its targets are the crown jewels of our national forest system -- millions of acres of pristine landscapes in Alaska's Tongass Rainforest and Idaho's Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.

Now the Administration has set its sights on Colorado's Rocky Mountains, where it is moving forward rapidly with a rulemaking that would remove the landmark Roadless Area Conservation Rule, the popular policy that protects the last one-third of the nation's most pristine forests for future generations to enjoy. If adopted, it would dramatically increase logging and road-building in 4.4 million acres of Colorado's best backcountry, while giving the green light to roughly 100 new oil and gas drilling projects, impacting valuable fish and wildlife habitat and outdoor recreation opportunities.
