Dear folks,

If what Mr. Davis is saying is true, then the time to approach this issue
would be now, before the issue becomes too heated, and while these things
are being considered preliminarily.  Perhaps a positive and supportive
letter forwarded to Mr. Trump, respectfully requesting him to conserve the
declared areas as much as possible, might be appropriate and well considered
at this time.  Perhaps the ISRS and other concerned environmental
organizations would be the appropriate ones to draft, vet, and forward such
a letter.
