With this sort of discussion, the devil is always in the detail.   I don't think anyone is suggesting that there should be no domestic energy production in the US.   Rather the discussion is about where "those special areas where extraction industries don't operate" are.   This thread was started about removing protections from National Monuments, which could lead to resource extraction in these former monuments.  Many of us (and 97% of those who submitted comments to the DOI) consider these Monuments to be special areas where resource extraction shouldn't occur. 

 

It is all about balance - currently less than 5% of land in the US is protected as a National Park or National Monument.

Thanks Rando I have been trying to write something similar and was having trouble assembling my words. I agree with yours.

Ditto, thanks Rando-I was having the same problem as buckland!  Just finished reading the latest on ANWAR and was trying to compose an adequate reply!

I lived in Alaska in the 80s.  ANWAR and the Porcupine caribou herd were thought of as being special when I lived there.  I thought of chartering in to see the place and caribou but it didn't happen before I moved away.  I have a strong emotional response against opening up ANWAR.  Maybe a lot of the opposition is an emotional response like mine.  Nothing based on facts and reality.

 

Currently I don't have time to research the facts about ANWAR so I will remain politically quiet and a bit sad.

Here's another bit of crazy by the current administration:

 

Responding to Archeologists' Amicus briefs filed in support of a lawsuit by the Hopi tribe and others over removal of protections from the Utah monuments: “Federal defendants do not have adequate time or space to address every formulation of the arguments,” (Deputy Assistant Attorney General Jean) Williams wrote.

 

Williams works in the environmental division, led by Jeffrey Bossert Clark, who represented BP in lawsuits over the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, the nation’s largest oil spill.

 

These are the folks charged with protecting our National Heritage.

It really bothers me that we are exporting our resources like timber, minerals, even water in the form of alfalfa, nut crops, etc.
