Keep Our Coal in the Ground, Save Our Climate

The Trump Administration wants to re-approve four massive coal leases in the Powder River Basin, the nation’s largest coal producing region.

Last year, we won a landmark court ruling overturning the Wright Area leases, which opened the door for Peabody and Arch, the largest U.S. coal companies, to mine 2 billion tons of coal from the two largest mines in the nation.

Now, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management is trying to paper over its violations and again approve the leases. To do so, they’re shortcutting their environmental review.

Confronting coal in the Powder River Basin is critical for our climate. Speak out against coal leasing and climate denial under Trump!
