I think people on both sides- environmentalists and energy industry- were frustrated with the endless DOI moratoriums on new action while they tried to figure out new policies and regulations.

Will oil companies receive 20% off coupons on permits?

Th' increasing prospects tire our wand'ring eyes,
Hills peep o'er hills, and Alps on Alps arise! -- Alexander Pope

Why, yes, I will take your slightly used national park. What's the worse that could happen?

"In 2002 the James Peak Wilderness and Protection Area Bill (aka Public Law 107-216) was signed into legislation by President George W. Bush and Congress. The Bill specifically created a narrow road corridor between the Indian Peaks and James Peaks Wilderness areas and states that if any of the affected counties (Grand, Gilpin or Boulder) request, the Secretary of the USDA will cooperate and assist with the repair of the Rollins Pass Road and until that time the attendant road (the BWR) will remain open to motorized use."

All they ask is that you don't believe what you read about REI being one of the best retailers to work for by Forbes and Fortune. No one there sees close to the average that Fortune claims the floor employees make a year ($24k). Workers tried to organize and Sally and company waged a ruthless and divisive campaign of disinformation against them. If you're a member, I would recommend you write letters to *your* co-op and ask why floor staff in *your* co-op are treated so poorly while the executives enjoy six and seven figure salaries and the company grows at the same rate as China.
From the story: Jewell can be an exuberant evangelist on behalf of trying to get kids from the inner cities into the mountains. There is a profound disconnect, she often says, between modern life and the natural world. And those city dwellers without money are the ones missing out most.
Sally Jewell would be the first woman chosen to join a second-term cabinet dominated by white males. But she also represents a different kind of diversity inside the Beltway: someone who can tell you which way the wind is blowing without having to fake it.

-Whether climbing or flying, the single greatest thing to remember is that every ascent is optional, and if you feel like making another, your subsequent descent is mandatory.
