Don't "develop" the Grand Canyon

One of the most deservedly celebrated natural wonders in North America is also among the most endangered. Plans for uranium mining, a tourist tram line, and massive "development" threaten the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River. Background:
CommonDreams: Grand Canyon in the Crosshairs?
National Geographic: Grand Canyon Development Plans

A mining company, Energy Fuels Resources, is seeking to reopen a uranium mine; a proposed tramway would take tourists from new commercial sites to the canyon’s floor, and the nearby town of Tusayan, Ariz., is proposing 2,000 homes, 3 million square feet of commercial space, a spa, and a dude ranch.

To the U.S. Forest Service:

We urge you to reject Tusayan's application for a special use permit and to put a halt to any more "development" at the Grand Canyon.
