FUTURE OF AMERICAN NATIONAL PARKS

A British newspaper has taken a critical look at the deplorable demise of our national parks, one dying forest after another (the Sierra and other mountains are losing their pines).

Any guess about what will happen to parks during Trumptopia?  How many Trump towers exist in the parks?   How many times does Trump worry about national parks?  I suggest the answer to both is zero.  Can’t we just put a golf course on the floor of Yosemite?  Maybe a casino hanging over the edge of Grand Canyon?  Zip-lining through Zion?  Maybe we could just auction them off to Russian oligarchs and pay down the debt or buy more drones…
