Bureau of Land Management Defends Move to Oil-And-Gas Town in Colorado

"The idea had been floated for years but President. Trump is actually doing it is administration is moving the headquarters of the Bureau of land management the Federal Agency that oversees drilling mining and recreation on about a tenth of all land in the US. The agency's main foot main office is now in a traditional oil and gas town in Colorado. Npr's Kirk siegler reports the new headquarters a long way from Washington DC. Like nine thousand nine hundred miles to the small western Colorado City of Grand Junction here. It's impossible to ignore. You are surrounded by federal public. Land the towering Mesas Red Rock Canyons and the Colorado National Monument Lobby the Acting Director William Perry penalty caught flack after announcing the move because of the other tenants in this office building their Chevron upstairs and on the main floor right next to the BLM's new glass entryway Colorado's lead oil and gas lobbying firm. You can't help but notice when you walk in. This office is right next to the Colorado oil and gas the Kogo Office and I'm just thankful it's not a marijuana dispensary. There's no dearth of pot shops around here but the agency says it's also hard to find an office space where the industry doesn't have a presence. Grand Junction is surrounded by public lands. That produce a lot of oil and natural gas. You know frankly. Let's be real. The oil patch can always afford to fly to Washington and sit down with somebody in Washington. The people can't do it farmers and ranchers and people from small community and county commissioners in a crisp wight Western shirt and Black Bolo tie the six-foot-five pen-li says the General Services Administration found this space. I think the more important story is that were out here. Were in the local community and locals can come and see us and we're just a you know a short drive away from a lot of people who would never think of flying to Washington. Dc to sit down with the director for penalty. This move is about decentralizing the US government the seventy four year old attorney spent most of his career at the Conservative Mountain states legal foundation re challenged the BLM in cases representing miners ranchers and recently Utah counties who fought bears. Ears National Monument. Some Westerners have long complained that the agencies leaders in Washington are disconnected with rural resource dependent communities here in Grand Junction Mesa County. Commissioner Rose Puglisi pushed hard for the relocation we have great relationships with our local field offices but ultimately we've learned that the decisions are made in Washington DC where they don't really even know where Mesa County is or the impacts of their decisions on our economy. Puglisi is a Republican but there has been some bipartisan support in Colorado Anyway for the relocation in part because the government is moving higher paying leadership. Jobs out here but mostly. Democrats and many conservationists are fighting this. They lost a bid to strip funding for the move but they did convince the Government Accountability Office to launch an inquiry. A lot of people come here like walk. Dogs defined right in activist and environmental filmmaker. Cody Perry is in. Bangs Canyon is a popular recreation site just to the edge of the Grand Junction sprawl. Is this public lands. That belongs to not just the people here in this county but all Americans he points out that the vast majority of BLM staff is already living and working full time in the rural west any worries that removing leaders from the halls of power and DC will turn the agency into a backwater. But he thinks that's by design. I think it's an absolute effort to undermine and dismantle an agency where essentially removing institutionalized knowledge that is being basically dismantled by industry actors. That's crazy talk. There's no other way to say back at the. Blm's still mostly empty offices near the city's Small Airport Acting Director William Perry pen-li says if anything the BIELEMA staffing up to carry out the administration's public land's agenda. Why in the world would we fire? People are dismantling agency this critical to accomplish your goals like energy independence like increasing recreational access like decreasing the likelihood of wildfires all across the West but for the third straight year.

"But not you take care of the water. We see this. Same question being played out at bears ears. Don't we? And there's a way in which for me. And maybe for you. The heartbreak of of the of standing rock for me. I felt some ball at the designation of the bears ears national monument that this was to be a place to really protect tribal lands of five different nations. And you know what? Now, the the management plans that were being hatched for forbears ears actually included using traditional knowledge traditional practices as well as the tools of western resource management to manage that land was going to be a profound act of healing to to again, green recognition and used to need of ways of thinking. And we see here gathered the coalition of five tribes who had worked for decades. To get the designation of this sacred cultural landscape, and if you think back to that. The thought bubbles of what land means the bears years checks every single one of them in an ancestor cultural landscape. And so that was a beacon wasn't it. Of hope for the way that we might. You've seen this ready. But as we know with another stroke of that same pen this to be historic act of healing and Justice for native peoples on public lands, what's undone with the stroke of a pen and the bears ears.

"Fact, we now know that the boundaries of the redesign bears ears national monument were drawn in order to accommodate nine leases for a uranium mining company that we the people because of the corporate rights of legal person more rights than than you have. And if you are not outraged by this. I think you're not paying attention. Is this? What we the people really means as we remember that these two plans are Zestril lands. And if we turn this around, you know, an indigenous ways of thinking, we don't think about China's a river, you know, moving in one direction thing about time is a lake time is circular. So this notion of of the past and the future. Can be meeting spiraling around one. Another what we have to think about when we think about public lead as ancestoral land is not only the history of land and the responsibilities that come from that. But after all of the generations of settlement in this country, who is also becoming the ancestors of this land. Collectively, we all are. And the question becomes of convent sisters to wanna be. That's what I think should motivate us what kind of ancestors. Do we want to be in this time? And I want to use the we there. I can't do it in English the inclusively what kind of ancestors do. We all want to be settlers and native people. You're listening to a public affair on W or eighty nine point nine FM, Madison. Today's program is a prerecorded one. So we aren't taking any phone calls. The speaker is Dr Robin wall Kimera professor of environmental biology and forestry at the state university of New York and Syracuse, she's the author of the two thousand thirteen book braiding sweetgrass, indigenous wisdom, scientific knowledge and the teachings of plants. She spoke on the UW medicine campus last Thursday, let's continue. So let's continue with this theme of we the people, and and really thinking about what people have a voice in public lands with taking a very short look at whether native people have a have a voice in their public. I e in ancestoral lands, and it's really important. I hope that every one of you. When you see this question written here. We'll say I do I do right in a way that you vote in the way that you spend your time and your energy what you are studying what you're devoting, your energy and passion to you. You have a waste in what happens to to public Lennon's essential that that you to exercise that right? But when we think again about this notion of we the people what I'd like you to do is with this reflection in mind. Have a look at this beautiful scene. And tell me who are the people there where are the people in that slide? Right. Almost everyone. There's no people. They're either. If we put up thought bubbles of what does it mean to be a person in the western world view. There are no people here at all. But through the indigenous lists growing up his Apollo Artemis person in exactly this last kit, where if you've read breeding sweet rest, these are my these are my teachers, Goldenrod and Astras I dearly loved these these plants. They people to me they are persons there. My teachers in my beloved teachers, but in the western world view, we would say our new teachers there, there's just so weeds the weeds and a and a charismatic micro, I suppose. And so in the indigenous paradigm is probably you know, nature is a subject uterus full of people full of persons in. We think about the ecological community as your neighborhood as full of people whereas in the mechanistic view of of ecological sciences. This is what a community looks like this is an ecosystem is a pretty mechanistic reductionist viewpoint. Glad you sort of laughed like, yeah. That's an ecosystem. It is a model of an ecosystem right primitive one as it happens. But nonetheless, the western paradigm as nature as object nature as stuff nature. It's physical entities. Right. Not as as persons, and as a young person, I going off to college to study plants, I came to college with the view that that feel the gold Nassar full of persons and full of teachers, and I was quickly told that that was not the case.

"Tonight newly released e mails, reveal that Trump administration officials at the department of interior either hid or ignored data, showing some environmental protections. We're actually working at two national monuments. The monuments are in Utah, and last year President Trump raised some environmental protections at both easing the way for the federal lands to be opened up for business mining and logging with the details. CNN senior correspondent drew Griffin. Shortly after President, Obama established bears ears national monument and expanded the grand staircase Escalante national monument. The government noted positive change on the protected, federal lands. Tourism was up vandalism into protected areas was down and paleontologist, amateur and professional were making incredible finds a department of interior memo outlined it all in may of two thousand seventeen showing just how well the protections were working. It is reasonable to conclude that visitation would be less if the lands at not been designated as a monument. The mental read more vandalism would have likely occurred in one region of grand esque Galante contains a plethora of paleontological specimens. Twelve new dinosaur species have been discovered since designation. There was one big problem. All of that good news did not fit in with President Trump's decision to strip away protection. And open up those protected lands to business to what did interior department do with all that information? Well, they buried it and it was him until now by accident. All of this was recently revealed including the proposed reductions in an errant document dump to a freedom of information act request by the center for western priorities. Oh, it's obvious of when you look at the documents, there are big, red outlines, big, big boxes around what they tried to redact. It was clearly just an error on the production end for they failed to actually hit the final redact button in adobe acrobat the department of interior tried to recall the documents, but it was too late allowing Aaron Weiss and other environmental watchdogs to see exactly how Trump's politically appointed interior department staff was working. It shows that all of their claims around the national monuments review were false. Secretary Zinke said there was no outcome that was preordained. These documents proved definitively that the outcome was preordained and that secretary Zinke is political. Appointees were going out of their way to hide information that didn't make their case. This really is incredibly embarrassing for the interior department. In another example, this one involving offshore protections interior didn't want the public to see this document up out a protected area off the coast of New England that says, these areas support fisheries for a variety of species of fish and shellfish providing income and employment throughout the northeastern United States a newly released. Email says this section while accurate seems to me to undercut the case for the commercial fishing closure being harmful. I suggest in the attached deleting most of it. For that reason, you shouldn't be able to redact basic facts just because you don't like those basic facts drew. Has the department of interior explained why they were trying to hide this information? Is there some legitimate purpose interested? There are rules that allow some reductions to take place, but we have no idea why the department of interior would delete things like tourism is up or dinosaur. Bones were found the interior department so far hasn't responded to any of this and it's the, it's not the first time that Ryan Zinke and his staff have failed to disclose or to hide information from the public. Yet the this comes actually on the hills of another CNN report which found interior secretary, Ryan Zinke not fully disclosing meetings on his public calendar, and we also revealed in a CNN investigation how the now fired EPA administrator Scott Pruitt also deliberately altered his public calendar to hide meetings and events from the public. It's a troubling pattern that one government ethicist told me today, looks like these Trump appointees are trying to create their own version of reality and isn't so much for transparency drew. Thanks very much. Well, there's new polling from voters on the meeting eight days ago between President Trump and Russian President, Vladimir Putin. It comes from Quinnipiac university. Fifty. Two percent said the meeting was a failure for the US. Twenty-seven percent said it was success. Big majority believes the meeting was a success for Russia Seventy-three percent. Just eight percent said it was a failure for Russia, pretty establishing seventy percent saying was success for Russia. So that's what the majority of voters think what about veterans cluding some who served when the Soviet Union was enemy..
