Matt Mead on Environment

 


Mineral production resources equate to tremendous value

We remain number one in trona production; we have 70% of the world's supply of bentonite; we are number one in coal production; we are number one in uranium reserves; and year in and year out we rank first or second in natural gas production. These resources equate to tremendous value. The total value for minerals produced in Wyoming hit $15.5 billion dollars in 2010, the second best year ever and up 23% since 2009. Wyoming remains strong in minerals.

With courts wolf management, winners are lawyers & wolves

I am asking for your support on my proposed wolf plan. After years of court battles, where every year the number of wolves increases by about 10 percent, where we have lost the ability to manage that which belongs to us--our wildlife, where wolves threaten our Agriculture, wildlife and outfitters, it is time to move forward.

We must accept the fact--if Wyoming is to have wolves and it is clear that we are--we have a scientifically sound approach that gives us management and the ability to have a balance in terms of numbers. If we don't move forward, we diminish our state's rights and miss an opportunity to achieve greater balance.

Some disagree with my plan, instead believing a solution lies in the hands of a few judges and we should continue in the courts. To date we have not gained the ability to manage wolves, the numbers keep going up, and the only proven winners have been the attorneys and the wolves.

Mead signed Letter from Governors in US and Canada to Pres. Obama

Dear Mr. President,

We respectfully urge you to move forward on the Keystone XL Pipeline project. The energy relationship between the US and Canada is vital to the future of both our countries.

We consider the Keystone XL Pipeline fundamentally important to the future economic prosperity of both the US and Canada.
