These huge land grabs of our western public lands effectively cancel mineral material leases held for decades. And many celebrate the governmental overreach.

Not in my lifetime but definitely soon, these huge single-use land grabs of our multiple use public lands will reverse. This happens when our country needs the fuels and ore, when we can no longer import mineral materials through accessibility and affordability.

So, I’m not so concerned about these temporary executive order (national monument) land grabs, and we now have the prescendent of executive order national monument overreach being reversed by executive order. It can be done and it will happen.
