Environmentalists are trying to bury a coal project in southern Utah. A consortium of environmental groups led by the Sierra Club released a statement yesterday condemning the Coal Hollow Mine Expansion project near Alton. The statement contends the project would “industrialize” the lands near Bryce Canyon National Park for quote, “low-cost dirty fossil fuel.” The statement accompanied more than 47-thousand signatures that were later handed to Utah’s Bureau of Land Management.
