Trump finalizes plans to open Utah monuments for mining and drilling

The Trump administration on Thursday finalized plans to expand ’drilling, mining and grazing’ on land in Utah that used to be part of the Grand-Staircase Escalante National Monument and the Bears Ears National Monument, previously off-limits to energy development. The move comes despite pending lawsuits from conservation groups, who have challenged the constitutionality of the president’s action.

It's constitutional... that will just show it down. Doesn't mean we should do it. We need pristine locations. Praise Trumpy when he does good. This however I think is bad Trumpy. He needs to be smacked in the nose with a newspaper.

Not going to have the 'cleanest air and water ever' if he keeps opening up pristine wilderness to industrial activity.

How about Mr Law and Order waits for the Law and Order to take place like the rest of us? Or is this spinning this story into 'orange man bad' by saying exactly what he is doing? Seems to offend some of you... Weird. :/
