Don’t Let Enthusiastic Tourists Kill the White Mountains

Target: Commissioner Robert R. Scott, New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services

Goal: Protect the White Mountains.

New Hampshire’s White Mountains are more than just a stunning backdrop; they are a living, breathing ecosystem under siege. From unchecked tourism to climate change and pollution, the threats are real and escalating. These mountains are not just a haven for countless species but also a cornerstone of New Hampshire’s cultural and historical identity.

The White Mountains also serve as an economic engine for the state, drawing tourists and outdoor enthusiasts. Their degradation would not only be an ecological disaster but also a blow to the state’s economy, affecting jobs and community well-being.

Sign the petition to demand that the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services enact immediate, effective measures to protect the White Mountains. Key initiatives should include tighter controls on tourism, a crackdown on pollution, and public awareness campaigns about responsible mountain use.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Commissioner Robert R. Scott,

The White Mountains, a jewel in New Hampshire’s crown, are under threat. The perils of unchecked tourism, climate change, and pollution are not just looming; they’re already here. The evidence is clear: declining wildlife, eroding trails, and increasing pollution levels.

It’s time to move from words to deeds. We call for the immediate development of a robust, actionable plan to protect these mountains. This plan should go beyond mere regulations and engage the public in sustainable mountain use and conservation efforts.

The cost of inaction is too high. The White Mountains are not just scenic vistas; they are integral to New Hampshire’s identity and economy.

We urge you to act decisively and swiftly to protect this invaluable natural asset for generations to come.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. The White Mountains are under threat or is it attack? Perils of unchecked tourism, climate change, and pollution are not just looming; they’re already here along with declining wildlife, eroding trails, and increasing pollution levels.
    Immediate development of a strong plan of action is required. A plan to go beyond regulations engaging the public in sustainable mountain use and conservation efforts. Inaction will not be tolerated. The public must be informed and aware the state is in dire need. Action now or a future of regret. You decide.
