Donald Trump's Department of Interior is *considering a massive expansion
of the Rosebud coal mine*, which feeds the Colstrip coal-fired power plant
in eastern Montana. The expansion, known as Area F, would allow the mine to
expand to an additional 6,746 acres and extract an additional 70 million
tons of coal. If approved, this expansion could feed the Colstrip plant for
more than 20 years and add roughly 140 million tons of C02 into the
*Please plan to speak out against this terrible proposal.* Climate-change
exacerbated wildfires caused a debilitating plague of smoke to descend on
Missoula in 2017, a grave reminder of the devastation that fossil-fuel
burning is causing. Obviously, expanded coal mining is going in precisely
the wrong direction and must be strenuously opposed.

*When:* *Thursday, Feb. 15, 2018, 7:00 pm*
*The Bitterroot Room, Doubletree Inn, 100 Madison Street, Missoula, MT **~*
