Should the government open up undeveloped national parks for development?
Asked at Hastings Books, Music and Video on December 16, 2002
“I would say that they should fix up the national parks we already have that have fallen into disrepair.”
“Big parts of our national history are being lost continuously. All the industries are taking over before it can become national parks.”
“Oh, definitely not. The long-term value of undeveloped land is far more valuable than the mineral resources we could gain from them.”
“No, because I think it’s important to preserve natural spaces. They’re as great a national treasure as any monument we’ve built.”
