So it is not enough for this administration to globally attack the environment for corporate profit, they now feel the need to start the process on a state by state basis. The National Forest land managed by the BLM is PUBLIC land. If mining companies want to destroy it, they should share all profits with the American people directly, through actual cash payouts, in return. Why should they and their shareholders be the only ones getting rich from minerals owned by us all? If we could make these endeavors less profitable, they would stop! Not everything should be about greed and profit for one -- sometimes, you just have to think about the greater good.
