WHERE: Summers County ARH Appalachian Trail makes list of 15 wild areas in U.S. at high risk of development for oil, gas and other resourcesd New report shines spotlight on important wild lands that must be protected A new report released today by The Wilderness Society raises the alarm about the Appalachian Trail in Virginia and We st Virginia, which is currently under threat from the proposed Mountain Valley Pipeline, and other wild lands across the U.S. threatened by extractive industries eager to exploit the resources on or underneath them, including oil, gas and coal. 'Too Wild To Drill" identifies !5 unique places found on public lands that are at high risk of drilling, mining and other development-- and the damage and destruction that inevitably follow. These lands provide Americans with important benefits such as clean air and water, wildlife habitat, recreational opportunities, sacred sites, jobs and other socioeconomic benefits. '~rhe Appalachian Trail is the longest hiking-only footpath in the world, providing recreational opportunities for millions of people every year," said Laura Belleville, vice president of conservation and trail programs for the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. 'The Mountain Valley P~pc~i~e a poorly-planned project, would permanently scar this iconic treasure for 100 miles, threatening clean drinking water sources and damaging the economy for Central Virginia communities." Energy development damages landscapes, often permanently. Impacts resulting from infrastructure like well pads, oil rigs, roads, fences and pipelines include air and water pollution from haze, spills, chemicals and dust, as well as phenomena like industrial traffic, gas flares and other light pollution, and loud noise that can disrupt communities and wildlife. "Some places are simply too wild to drill or to develop for pipelines," said Hugh Irwin, landscape conservation planner for The WALK FOR HER LIFETIME CONTEST Did you know WFHL has 2 contest at every walk event?
