Trump's Big Oil lie
Trump's Big Oil lie

Last year, Secretary Zinke insisted that "Bears Ears isn't really about oil and gas."

However, this past week, the New York Times reported that oil and gas was actually a primary reason for the Trump administration's decision to gut Bears Ears National Monument by an astounding 85% to free up fossil fuels for extraction.

This is shocking, but not surprising. Zinke has already pushed for offshore drilling in the Atlantic, Pacific and Arctic oceans; opened public lands to dirty coal mining; and reversed rules that limit methane air pollution.
