Fossil fuel extraction and uranium mining on native lands have resulted in emissions of carbon dioxide and methane during extraction and fuel burning. Energy resource extraction on tribal lands also has resulted in substantial ecosystem degradation and deforestation, further contributing to carbon emissions."^^xsd:string; gcis:isFindingOf <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/second-state-carbon-cycle-report-soccr2-sustained-assessment-report/chapter/tribal-lands>; gcis:isFindingOf <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/second-state-carbon-cycle-report-soccr2-sustained-assessment-report>; ## Properties of the finding: gcis:descriptionOfEvidenceBase "Key Finding 3 is supported by resources on fossil fuel and uranium extraction on tribal lands (Indigenous Environmental Network 2016; Mills 2016; Regan 2014, 2016; U.S. EIA 2017a, 2017b; Grogan 2011; U.S. EPA 2018; Moore-Nall 2015) and on ecological degradation from energy extraction (Brugge and Goble 2002; Diep 2010)."^^xsd:string; gcis:newInformationAndRemainingUncertainties "Uncertainties result from the lack of carbon emissions monitoring during energy extraction on tribal lands. Although energy extraction and use on Native American and First Nation lands are fairly well documented, carbon emission and consumption measurements are scarce, and studies of the adverse effects of tribal fossil fuel economies are limited."^^xsd:string; a gcis:Finding . ## This finding cites the following entities: <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/second-state-carbon-cycle-report-soccr2-sustained-assessment-report/chapter/tribal-lands/finding/key-message-7-3> prov:wasDerivedFrom <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/second-state-carbon-cycle-report-soccr2-sustained-assessment-report/chapter/preface/figure/figurep-4>.
