It appears here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. The question was about climate change—the man-made global crisis that Ryan Zinke, as a Montana state senator, once urged President Barack Obama to take action on, but in recent years has become willfully blasé about. “It appears that the world is laughing at the United States’ stance as it relates to climate change,” CNN correspondent René Marsh told the secretary of the interior, along with acting Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler, at a December 11 briefing on the EPA’s proposal to gut an Obama-era clean water rule. “What is your response?” Marsh was referring specifically to protesters disrupting and laughing derisively during a US panel promoting coal, oil, … [Read more...] about Ryan Zinke’s Real Legacy Is Rolling Back Environmental Protections and Cozying Up to Big Oil
You’d never know it sitting in ski day traffic on Interstate 70, but there are still places in Colorado to revive in quiet solitude. In these remote areas, the only tracks are the ones behind you and the only sounds are the gentle “poofs” of snow on snow as loaded branches drop their bounty to the blanketed ground below.The vast expanse of protected land west of Cameron Pass is just such a place. Sixty-five miles up Colorado 14 from Fort Collins is a massive area of rugged wilderness, including peaks between the Never Summer Mountains on the northern border of Rocky Mountain National Park and the Medicine Bow Mountains to the north of Cameron Pass. In addition to the 71,000-acre State Forest State Park, there are several U.S. Forest Service National Wilderness areas, including Rawah with 78,000 acres and Comanche with 67,000 acres of protected land. The relatively small Neota, with about 10,000 acres, is still nearly twice the size of Vail, Colorado’s … [Read more...] about What to know if you want to go backcountry skiing in Colorado
The hunters, anglers and nature lovers of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers’ California Chapter were far from their beloved lakes, marshes, forests and coasts Thursday night, Aug. 23. Instead, clad in hearty plaid shirts and sturdy boots, they gathered round the Mission District’s vintage Verdi Club stage for a night of backcountry storytelling and high-end cheese. Backcountry Hunters and Anglers, based in Missoula, Mont., is a nonprofit that aims to be the “sportsmen’s voice of our wild public lands, waters and wildlife.” Not all necessarily hunters, each member of the organization is devoted to conservation and access to public lands. BHA members hunt, fish, forage and/or camp, as well as volunteer their time and expertise on things like river cleanups and public land advocacy in both the United States and Canada. The BHA’s California Chapter boasts about 2,000 members, and last Thursday was the chapter’s Campfire Stories fundraiser and … [Read more...] about The great outdoors comes inside to tell Campfire Stories

It’s deserved. ByJordan Breal July 16, 2018 At the end of April, a week or two before summer’s heat would detonate across the Southwest, my husband and I stopped to acclimate to the thin, crisp air of an alpine summit. Under the shade of ponderosa pines and Douglas firs, we laid out our rain jackets like blankets and fished snacks out of our daypacks and turned over fossils, wondering what otherworldly beings had been there before us. As we continued on, through a gently sloping backcountry meadow, I tried to reconcile where we were — the middle of a cool, dense coniferous forest, home to black bears, mountain lions and elk — with where we also were; that is, high above one of … [Read more...] about There Are No Real Roads in Guadalupe Park.
