Interior website swaps out scenic shots for oil and gas drills (again)

President Trump signed an executive order aimed at rolling back protections for America’s national monuments, and the Bureau of Land Management appears to be on board with the administration's anti-environment agenda. Take BLM’s popular Flickr page, which used to showcase stunning photos of federal lands and the picturesque flora, fauna, and landscapes they contain. Now the BLM’s account displays photo after photo of drilling and mining activities, reflecting Trump’s preference for exploiting our public lands for fossil fuels. (This, of course, is not the first time that BLM has opted for dirty pictures on one of its websites.)
