Theodore Roosevelt saw the need to protect certain ares so that all future generations can also see these beautiful areas. He believed as I do, that without government protection, people will find reasons to destroy these location so they can make money for themselves, never thinking about the future. Just this year we have seen those seeking fossil fuels and other energy development want to use these lands. Every State has already ruined most of the forests in their states for development, and that helped create global warming. These few government funded areas must be preserved in their natural state, untouched by development.
