“WHEN YOU THINK OF ALBERTA’S ROCKY MOUNTAINS YOU PROBABLY THINK OF SCENIC MOUNTAINTOPS, ROLLING FOOTHILLS AND CLEAR BLUE STREAMS. YOU PROBABLY DON’T THINK OF DECOMMISSIONED PARKS OR OPEN-PIT COAL MINES, BUT THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT THE FUTURE COULD BE.”
CPAWS Southern Alberta Conservation Director, Katie Morrison, discusses the recent changes to the 1976 Alberta Coal Policy and the multiple proposals for coal mine development in the Rocky Mountains with NoWhere Else Magazine. This article dives into the environmental, economic, and social risks of new coal mines in the Rocky Mountains. Both Albertans and visitors alike can take action to fight for a coal mine free future in the Rocky Mountains. Click on the article below to find out how.
NoWhere Else Magazine is created out of a passion for sustainable life, travel, and the beauty of nature that surrounds us. They intend to inform, educate, and influence people all over the world to change their traveling/living habits which are more money/popularity driven rather than driven out of a passion to explore and learn. And by that, to cause less damage to the local communities and environment.
Issue #2 is focused on Changes, which occur around us but also on new habits we can implement to harmonise better with nature.
