    “Zinke defends monument reductions, supports Badger-Two Medicine” http://missoulian.com/news/local/updated-zinke-defends-monument-reductions-supports-badger-two-medicine/article_7edc809c-3144-5af4-bc3b-86fc68fd5e6f.html Montana Wilderness Association Rocky Mountain Front field director Casey Perkins said Zinke appeared to be respecting the wishes of one Indian tribe while ignoring the desires of others. “While we appreciate Sec. Zinke recommending national monument protection for the Badger-Two Medicine, we find it reprehensible that he’s doing so at the same time he’s stripping protection from a place that is as sacred to five sovereign southwestern nations as the Badger-Two Medicine is to the Blackfeet,” Perkins wrote in an email. “We believe that Badger-Two Medicine deserves permanent protection, but any discussion of that must originate with the Blackfeet.”

    “Patagonia’s Anti-Trump Statement Was Massively Good for Business” (GQ Dec 12) https://www.gq.com/story/patagonia-trump-lawsuit-sales-uptick “…Over the weekend, the House Committee on Natural Resources—a congressional committee helmed by Utah Republican Rob Bishop that oversees legislation pertaining to public lands, wildlife, and mining among other topics—responded to Patagonia by mimicking its white-font-over-black-space statement. “Patagonia is lying to you,” the graphic declared, and was accompanied by a tweet. “[Patagonia] just wants your money,” the HCNR claimed. What the committee might not have realized was that Patagonia’s hardest-core customers didn’t see that as an insult. Just the opposite: They were ready to pay up.” See also https://www.gq.com/story/government-attacking-patagonia
    “Trump Is the Wrong Target for Climate Activists : The administration isn’t going to change its mind on protecting the environment. But consumer pressure on corporations could do just that.” https://newrepublic.com/article/146269/trump-wrong-target-climate-activists “According to GQ Patagonia’s sales skyrocketed after it declared “The President Stole Your Land. Patagonia gear sold by non-Patagonia retailers sold six times faster than normal on the day after the announcement; for the next two days, sales were five times higher than usual.”
    Former Congressman Henry Waxman spent 40 years in the House of Representatives trying to convince the government to address pollution and global warming. He knows what success looks like: He was the author of the 1990 Clean Air Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1996, both of which are now law.
    Waxman also knows that things are different now under Trump’s anti-regulatory regime. “When you can’t rely on government at all,” he told me, “you have to find other ways to accomplish your goal.”
    Waxman, who retired from Congress in 2014, is now the chairman of the environmental group Mighty, which is trying to build a consumer-driven environmental advocacy movement. Their latest corporate target is Tyson Foods, which they assert is responsible for most of the water pollution across the Midwest. http://www.mightyearth.org/

    Utah archaeological sites on BLM’s auction block https://www.revealnews.org/article/countless-archaeological-sites-at-risk-in-trump-oil-and-gas-auction/ The 13,000-year-old historical record of Native Americans who inhabited the outskirts of two national monuments near the Colorado-Utah border is facing an unprecedented threat. On March 20, the federal government is scheduled to auction off almost 41,000 acres in southeast Utah to oil and gas companies under expedited lease sales ordered last year by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. An investigation by Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting found that the administration’s expedited move to open these public lands to energy exploration puts at risk scores of ancient buildings, vessels, and petroglyphs. A recent BLM memo directed regional managers to truncate scientific review and public comment periods and granted permission to eliminate them altogether if a proposed lease area had been studied previously. https://www.blm.gov/policy/im-2018-034
