Spectacular Fossils Found in Area Trump Unprotected

One of the world's richest troves of Triassic-period fossils has been discovered in an area of Bears Ears National Monument that just lost its protected status, scientists announced Thursday. President Trump signed a proclamation in December that shrank the national monument by 85 percent.


Eh who cares.

You think some old bones will be allowed to stand in the way of corporate profits?

News for y'all, most fossils are recovered from private lands. Those things have been there for 60,000,000 years. I doubt they are going anywhere.

#3 | Posted by Sniper The point is it is illegal to dig on any national monument unless you go through a enormous amount of paperwork that generally takes years.
