The Office of Surface Management finally put its DEIS and fact sheet concerning new mountaintop removal rules up on its Website. The comment period began on August 24, six weeks ago, and ends on October 23. We check the site every day and today is the first day we've seen the DEIS there.
But don't expect to find the October 23 due-date on the "fact sheet" that OSM has on its Website, or on the link called "How to Provide Comment," either. They don't offer advice into such matters as deadlines. Nowhere does the Website, the fact sheet, the news release, or the FAQ give a due date. One the other hand, given the abundance of lies and misinformation those documents do provide, perhaps that's a blessing.
The whole thing is so pathetic and embarrassing and disgusting I don't even quite know what to say.
