The link at the begining of the thread is real easy and works great! Here's the copy of my email.:thumbsup:

I point/click for the 1st 4 paragraphs and then added the last. So easy, even I was able to do it.

Dear Mr.Rick Cooper,

The studies used to justify the closure of Clear Creek Management Area are based on 40 hour work week occupational exposure to asbestos. The visitors at CCMA are recreational users with possible exposure of only a couple of hours to a couple of days at a time. The BLM needs to consider the vastly lesser exposure of recreational visitors compared to the studies daily workplace exposure.

There appear to be no documented cases of BLM employees diagnosed with cancer due to exposure at CCMA to the Chrysotile form of asbestos. These employees spend far more time in the area than recreational visitors, so if the employees are not experiencing related asbestos health problems then there must not be any real health risk.

The EPA report is flawed and should not be relied upon for the agency?s decision to enact a closure of the CCMA to all public use.

Lastly, the DEIS does not contain any Economic Effects of the huge impact to regional economy like gas stations, restaurants, lodging, camping supplies, etc. This must be added to the DEIS with supporting documentation.

Please understand by closing CCMA, the primary users (OHV enthusiasts) will now have less riding areas with more riders in them. This, in my opinion IS a REAL risk. As opposed to the "potential" risk you closed CCMA with.

I sure hope we have more people here getting this done quickly then have responded. One response for such an importatant and easy task is somewhat disheartening.

Do you want to help save our trails or what????
