WOAH! EVEN I HAVE TO SAY "BOO" ON THIS!

 I HAD NO IDEA PRESIDENT TRUMP DID THIS. Cutting National Monumental lands down considerably.Not every political party can be an ace:(

For conservation groups, that would be genuinely good news. So far, they have seen few lasting consequences of Trump’s actions, which were intended to increase access and encourage exploitation of natural resources within the monuments. “The optimistic part,” says Mike Popejoy, Utah public lands director at Grand Canyon Trust, “is that with the reversion to the original boundaries, no on-the-ground damage on any large scale has been done.”


President Barack Obama created the 1.35-million-acre Bears Ears monument in December 2016, shortly before leaving office. President Bill Clinton established Grand Staircase-Escalante, which covers 1.88 million acres, in 1996. Both used their authority under the 1906 Antiquities Act, which permits presidents to protect “objects of historic and scientific interest” on federal land without input from Congress.


When Trump reduced the monuments, he argued that the previous administrations had abused that authority. What remains most unclear, however, is whether the Antiquities Act grants presidents the authority to curtail the monument designations of their predecessors.

Four new mining claims were recently filed for lands stripped from Bears Ears, putting these areas at risk of hazardous resource extraction.

I'm ALL FOR the pipeline-but not at this cost,and who knows for sure where this leads.
