We cannot and should not pave everything over, build condos and drill for oil everywhere. Millions will visit these preserved areas from other nations as well as here domestically. Setting aside land to preserve wilderness has great economic benefit to our nation that some people are unable or unwilling to see because of the blindness that greed creates. We have a national park system that attracts many tourist dollars. Adding to that land and that system will only enhance and increase the economic value of preserving our nation's greatest asset. We must take off the blinders and see the great value that preserving the environment offers.
