Eco Watch - President Trump signed an executive order ordering a review of the Antiquities Act and national monuments on more than 100,000 acres.
The review enables the Department of Interior to examine whether any of the monument designations have led to a "loss of jobs, reduced wages and reduced public access."
More than 270 million acres of American land and waters are potentially at risk—an area two and a half times the size of California.
"By potentially rolling back safeguards for lands and waters that are currently protected from destructive development for generations to come, Trump is carving up this beautiful country into as many corporate giveaways for the oil and gas industry as possible," said Diana Best of Greenpeace USA. "People in this country who cannot afford the membership fee at Mar-a-Lago want safe water they can drink and public lands for their communities to enjoy."
