If those "patriotic" environmental groups had existed -- and had the power they now hold over our government in Washington D.C -- during the time period that our founding fathers were debating about what should be and what shouldn't be in the newly written Constitution, this country would not have grown any larger than the original 13 states. All the rest of what is now the United States would have been off-limits to any type of growth or use to the newly formed America. And, of course, there would not be any type of mining or drilling in the precious surface of the earth in the states that existed as a result of a couple hundred years of exploring, discovering and populating that part of the North American continent. Just saying ;-)
