Why not allow reasonable development instead of holding the land hostage for environmentalists that will never visit it?

There is about 175 million acres in Alaska closed to development. Don’t you consider that a bit excessive versus allowing a single lane gravel road between existing population areas?

Indeed. When I read "environmental groups that submitted thousands of public comments protesting the road." I wondered how many of 'em actually LIVED in that area.

Perhaps the Fish and Wildlife Service should restrict comments to only those who live in or around the area affected. Yeah, right.
