    1. Petition by

      Institute for Responsible Technology

The Park Service is asking for comments about how they'll profit from 'our collective' natural heritage. It is not NPS' right to sell off pieces of our heritage to the highest bidder(s). "Benefit sharing" is verbiage intended to sanitize, disguise or parse this very transparent intention.

The Director of the National Park Service issued "Director's Order #77-10: NPS Benefit Sharing. In the jargon of the Convention on Biological Diversity - of which the US is one of the few countries in the world NOT to be a member - this policy document is about Benefit Sharing subsequent to access (of living organisms) in the National Parks.

      Are you kidding me?!?! The National\state Parks are ready to sell out the few pristine places left in this country to drilling, logging, etc? I guess they forgot that they're paid by every taxpaying citizen in the US to protect these wilderness areas from special interests!!!

      I don't trust the government as a whole and believe they are controlled by the negative elite.

      There shouldn't even be a question as to why this is important. But the NPS is supposed to PROTECT our National Parks, not attempt to sell off parts of them for a profit and probably cause detriment to the few pristine wild-life refuges there are left! So my vote on this issue, as a tax paying citizen, is NO.
