Of course liberals, Democrats and environmentalists having been waging war of the working class for decades --- and they don't care a fig about the economic impact of putting blue collars out of work as long as they get their way.

Tens of thousands of family wage jobs were lost in the woods and small town lumber mills over the Spotted Owl --- and environmentalists cheered!

Having shut down the lumber operations, closed the mills, blown up the hydroelectric dams producing cheap, renewable power, closed mines and prevented new ones from opening, chased the cattle off public lands and so on, people like your author suggest that public lands should be reserved for the use of environmentalists and their politically correct tastes.
