    I almost find the comment from the BLM about “following the will of the public” laughable! What public is he talking about? I guess the energy companies are now considered the public of importance. The will of the public is that the majority of Americans don’t want this type of industrialism brought to our few remaining wild areas. Spin that! Amazingly Orwellian!

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
