Do Not Disturb The Wilderness

More land is being declared off limits:
The Interior Department on Friday issued a final plan to close 1.6 million acres of federal land in the West originally slated for oil shale development.

The proposed plan would fence off a majority of the initial blueprint laid out in the final days of the George W. Bush administration…

Interior’s Bureau of Land Management cited environmental concerns for the proposed changes. Among other things, it excised lands with “wilderness characteristics” and areas that conflicted with sage grouse habitats.
So when people go cold and are sitting in the dark over the next few winters, I'm sure they'll remember that they're doing it for the good of the sage grouse...
