Snowmobiles Are Not So Quiet

Laramie, Wy – A former Park Service employee says the Bush administration is misleading the public on snowmobiles. The Coordinator of the Coalition of Concerned National Park Service employees points out that studies are showing the new four stroke snowmobiles are nearly as noisy as the old two stroke models. Bill Wade adds that internal park service documents show the four stroke machines are loud enough to damage hearing. But Wade thinks the Park Service is trying to keep the information from the public...
Wade says he hopes the Park Service goes back to phasing out snowmobiles.
