Secretary Zinke Completes Review of National Monuments

This is a photo of a part of the Temblor Range in the Carrizo Plain National Monument. The San Andreas Fault runs through it.

Well, after waiting all this time, all we learn is that Ryan Zinke didn’t recommend the elimination of any of the 27 monuments to President Trump, but that he did recommend the down-sizing of an unknown number (above and beyond Bears Ears National Monument) and removing use restrictions for some or all of them.  I guess it could have been worse.   (Actually, it could still turn out to be worse.  It’s in Trump’s hands now.)
