Absolutely not! Raping & plundering our protected National lands--stripping away their protections! -- will not make the US a world leader again, nor will it provide viable sources of energy. The only energy these short-sighted proponents of destroying our amazing natural resources & heritage will come up with is energy that is more expensive than wind & solar, fossil fuel technology that is truly obsolete now. It would make as much sense to bring back the steam locomotive...maybe more sense. We need a renewed inspiration for science and math education & careers: THAT will return us to leadership!
