Leasing public lands would be a short term solution. The second a Trump-type gets elected (possibly as soon as 2024), those lease agreements would be terminated as soon as possible. Biden is absolutely correct that the answer is to vote. That is not some far in the future, pie in the sky thing - it’s just over four Read more
