It seems to me that everyone who is opposed to the use of federal land for energy exploration etc. thinks that we want to go put an oil rig right in the middle of Zion National Park or take a backhoe to Arches. The truth is, most of this land is in the middle of nowhere-out of sight, out of mind. The fact the the federal government owns 66% of Utah's land is mind boggling to me. I agree with Gov. Herbert in that we can be good stewards of the earth AND take advantage of Utah's abundance of natural resources.

The statement, what it we didn't have a Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Bryce, etc. Is absurd. The Gov. didn't create any of them, and no-one is advocating their destruction.

Make it easy on everyone & the lands too. Give it all back to the Indians.

I am not sure what President Obama has created in the months of his presidency. I'm not aware of any Utah land decisions made by Obama.
