NO energy development on public lands! This needs to be stopped and not be ‘justified’. We will have to comment to a zero carbon footprint if we hope to convince the rest of the world to commit to this as well. Whatever influence we have left will be required to get the rest of the world committed reducing green house gas emissions; It would be much harder to do this if our country doesn’t walk-the-talk. There will be no need to develop additional fossil fuel resources in the future. There should be adequate oil and gas reserves to support textile, pharmaceutical and construction material industries once we ween our society off of fossil fuels. There is no reason to further rape cherished public lands.
