Who needs dwindling habitats, a depletion of resources, and threatened species and habitats more: the Sierra Club or conservative off highway user groups. Obviously, the Sierra Club. Everytime one of these unfortunate things happens, even if it has more to with people "leaving only footprints" ( such as the depletion of cryptobiotic soils in Utah) it gives radical groups a chance to close off more land and create new National Parks, which attract tourists, with the facade of saving endangered land.
Next question, who is more qualified to know about public land in their backyard, the average resident of Lone Pine, Ridgecrest, Mojave California, Elko Nevada, Pinedale Wyoming ( most are conservative) or a liberal who lives in an apartment in Berkeley?
Also, if liberals knew so much about the environment, then how come the democrat controlled state assembly, state senate, and good ol Governor Davis can't fix the air quality in our cities such as L.A.? Why have the democrats, who have had the majority in California for the last fifty years, failed to do anything? I guess the real problems are all those cowboys in northern California with their lifted trucks, the creation of 100 new California powerplants in the last 10 years, and just not enough reliance on solar energy in our central valley, where it's foggy all winter, and rained the last two days in the end of May...
