Army Corps: No Rubber Stamps for Tar Sands!
This summer, a company called Arrakis plans to mine for tar sands in Logan County Kentucky. They are waiting for the Army Corps to issue them the proper permits to go ahead.
Tell the Army Corps that we don’t want tar sands destruction in the US!

To the Regulatory Office of the Army Corps of Engineers,
I’m writing today because I have learned about plans for tar sands mining in Logan County, Kentucky. If this goes through, this project will become one of the first in the USA.
In a state permanently damaged by mountaintop removal coal mining, Logan County and Kentucky as whole will not stand to be “next in line” for another destructive fossil fuel extraction industry. Tar sands mining has become an international catastrophe, making headlines about water, air, and health impacts every single day of the news cycle. Americans do not want to see this kind of mining take hold in the USA.
I am writing to ask you to REJECT Arrakis’ application for a 404 Stream and Wetland Fill Permit. Please protect the citizens of Logan County and those downstream.
