      America's last great temperate rainforest -- Alaska's
      Tongass National Forest -- is once again under assault
      from the timber industry and its allies. The Bush administration
      has recommended that more than 9 million acres -- more
      than one-half -- of this spectacular old growth forest
      receive absolutely no protection whatsoever, opening
      the doors wide for big timber and mining interests
      who want to exploit this national treasure.

      A New York Times editorial called the Bush administration
      proposal "an insult".

      With more than 30 timber sales moving forward in the
      Tongass, we need you to take action now! The Forest
      Service has asked for public comment on the plan. All
      you need to do is reply to this message to tell the
      Forest Service that you want this area protected.

      You can take action on this alert either via email
      (please see directions below) or via the web at:
