Zinke's 'crazy policies' sparked resignations — ex-adviser
The resignations this week of nine of 12 National Park Service advisers was a reaction, in part, to the Trump administration's August decision to scrap an Obama-era order calling for a focus on climate change in managing resources at parks. "In no way could I envision, with this administration, that any investment of time in giving advice would produce anything positive," former adviser Belinda Faustinos said.
