An advocacy opportunity today! The Missoula Board of County Commissioners is seeking public input on a proposed one year moratorium for expansion of the energy-intensive cryptocurrency industry (such as bitcoin) in our county. Head to our website https://www.missoulaclimate.org/advocacy.html for more and a link to easily submit your own comment before the June 14 public meeting.

You are welcome to attend this meeting if you can - 2 pm, County Courthouse Annex. ​

Here are 5 reasons the County is concerned:

1. noise

2. greenhouse gas emissions

3. electrical grid reliability and safety

4. fire

5. e-waste.

That's a lot to be concerned with. Thank you.
