Being from Utah, I feel stupid asking this, but is this choice a good or bad thing for those who like to enjoy the outdoors (other than just the asthetic value of wilderness)? I know that Jim Hansen has worked hard to fight the extremist environmentalists (So. Utah Wilderness Alliance, Sierra Club, etc), does Clarke follow his views?
No offend to anyone, but it sure would be nice to get someone from the West in Washington who doesn't just want to lock Utah's land away for future use! (Yeah right, like they will ever let anyone use the wilderness land in the future!).
