Abstract

Energy development and wilderness preservation are often thought of as competing and incompatible goals. Recent agreements in Utah between conservation groups, industry, and federal and state governments provide real world examples that this does not have to be the case. Mr. Bloch will discuss those agreements and the potential for similar win-win solutions.
