===== (SAMPLE LETTER) =====

Dear ABC World News Tonight:

On March 25, you aired a vicious attack on snowmobiling in Yellowstone National Park. This so-called "news" piece was punctuated by over dramatized scenes of purported impacts on air quality and wildlife. Your news report refused to admit that simple good management measures can protect snowmobile access, visitor choices, and the environment.

First of all, existing snowmobile use in Yellowstone and Grand Teton Parks has never violated any ambient clean air standards. Second, this year entrance passes are sold elsewhere - not at the gate. Visitors just drive through, with no stopping and no fumes buildup. Snowmobile clubs and businesses had requested this reform for years.

Even so, the snowmobile industry has demonstrated that the machines can be cleaner and quieter. Last November, the NPS received data from snowmobile manufacturers showing that some new snowmobile models reduce emissions by 90 percent. These are production models available today from local snowmobile dealers.

Snowcoaches are no answer. A recent study sponsored by the State of Wyoming found that snowcoach emissions are six times higher than the new snowmobiles. Did you know that snowcoaches are so noisy that passengers have to don earplugs to ride in them?

Contrary to your news report, visiting Yellowstone in the winter by snowmobile is the most pleasurable way to experience the wonders of our first and most famous national park. It is, by far, the first choice of most visitors.

We don't need bans, we need balanced management.

What do we hope to accomplish by writing to one of the leaders of the liberal media? This same "news" outlet touted car airbags as "killers". How can you reason with them? It's good to express your anger at these biased, slanted "news casters", but don't expect it to do anything. They have an agenda, we are not going to change it.

Beware of the Government-Media complex!

Read 1984.

It's all doubleplusgood.

Happy motoring, Tim
