colowyoThe wagons are circling up in Moffat County where locals and coal miners are expected to turn out for a public meeting Wednesday night to show support for the Trapper Mine operation.

Much to the chagrin of the environmental community, the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement has determined that the mining would have no significant impact on Mother Earth.

“We ask that Trapper’s supporters across Colorado and the West take a stand on behalf of Trapper’s workers and their families …” said Jim Mattern, Trapper Mining Inc. president and general manager. “The agency’s successful and timely completion of this environmental assessment and ample public comments are vital to Trapper’s future.”

It’s important that supporters attend the 5:30 p.m. rally at the Moffat County High School, and submit comments of support to the federal agency.

National environmental groups will certainly use this mine expansion as a fundraising opportunity, while urging their clueless supporters to submit Astroturf form letters claiming that heating homes with coal makes baby polar bears cry, creates tidal waves over Outer Mongolia, and causes global warming snow blizzards.
