Last week our family went to Disney World. This week, we're down in southern Colorado experiencing the exact opposite. During our Disney trip, I thought a lot about the differences between our national parks and Disney's amusement parks, as well as the future of our public lands in general. I will admit that few of those thoughts were positive. Fortunately, the current administration is doing a really good job of suddenly drawing attention to the work certain sectors have been doing for decades: quietly and slowly eroding, on many different fronts, the foundations of our public lands. Because the work they have done to prevent proper funding for personnel and infrastructure, restrict access (in a myriad of ways), shave acres off current boundaries, greatly increase permit numbers for resource extraction, and much more has pretty much gone unchallenged by the American public, they are in a very good position to argue for a complete dismantling what Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan called "America's Best Idea." And the current administration is more than receptive to their proposals.
