Coalbed methane exploration and development are being proposed for the Yukon.
But it is not here yet. We still have time to decide whether we want it and, if so, how the industry should operate.
The evidence indicates that this kind of large-scale, industrial development could degrade our land, air and water for decades. And this in turn could profoundly affect animals, birds, fish, plants and ultimately our way of life.
