What a waste. The Great Smokies are the most polluted park in America. Air pollution from vehicles is terrible. So the solution? More roads. --David

The Bush administration is proposing a massive waste
of conservation dollars in building a new road in
Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The road would
cost $590 million dollars to build and would require
$14 million in annual maintenance. By contrast the
operating budget for the park is only $12 million per
year. See the story at

http://www.wilderness.org/.

You can also send a free fax opposing this plan from
this site. Conservation dollars should be allocated
for conservation ends not roadbuilding.
