Description

A Time story package looks at the "epic battle for the West," in which giant oil companies and other mighty corporations have harmed the environment. The battle is over who gets to use the land in the West and for what purpose. The main story focuses on a series of federal government decisions "that could threaten the Yellowstone ecosystem." The article reports on several steps undertaken by the new Bush administration - blocking a plan to maintain the genetic diversity of the grizzly bears in the park, proposed lifting a ban on snowmobiles in the park, and projects for oil and gas drilling. The story describes the issue as "a conflict between federal and local," and finds that Yellowstone has become the focal point in the latest chapter in the battle for the West. The package includes maps and tables of who owns what in the West.
