How can you stop the destruction of an iconic Appalachian mountain, along with the history, culture, and memories it created?

Some highlights from today's Senate hearings on the appointment of Congressman Ryan Zinke as Secretary of Interior :
On the transfer of public lands to the states he stated: “I am absolutely against the transfer or sale of public lands”
When asked if he supports the Land and Water Conservation Fund: he stated:"I do. It has been important to MT. He also stated he would make sure more revenue goes to projects states should have a say where funds go."
On our National Parks he stated:
"I feel strongly that we need to address our national parks and the maintenance backlog, concerned about elitism of access and multi-use"
