In a sweeping decision that threatens massive swaths of land, hundreds of species and precious wildlife habitat, @Interior @SecretaryZinke today moved to roll back a conservation plan for the greater sage grouse on western U.S. lands:

"It’s the age-old battle between those who want to preserve western lands and those who want to extract," via @NatGeo…
.@SecretaryZinke's rollback will sacrifice critical wildlife habitat to boost industrial activity, like oil and gas drilling and mining.…
"Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has vowed to lift obstacles to drilling, and grouse protections have long been viewed by the energy industry as an obstacle to development." via @ABC…
Saving the sage grouse will also help protect the 350 other species that depend on healthy sagebrush habitat, like elk, mule deer, pronghorn, and golden eagles:

"Bobby McEnaney, a spokesman for the @NRDC, called the move a 'bald-faced giveaway to the oil and gas industry.'" via @USnews…
"The plans would open more of the bird’s millions of acres of range to activities like oil and natural gas drilling and development. It’s part of the Trump administration’s push to promote fossil fuels," via @TheHill…
Ryan Zinke is a failed Interior secretary.
He’s failing the country.
It’s time for him to go.
Zinke is relentlessly assaulting our public lands, oceans, and wildlife, all to help line the pockets of his industry pals.
