President Donald Trump has signed an executive order requiring a review of environmental protections given to lands owned by the federal government.

The order aims to shrink the borders of national monuments created by previous presidents, which Mr Trump called an "egregious abuse of federal power".

Unlike national parks, which require an act of Congress, national monuments can be created by a presidential directive.

However, a president does not currently have the right to abolish a monument.

The White House intends to shrink the borders of existing national monuments that have drawn controversy from Republican lawmakers and the mining industry.

What use is of nature if some white guy can't get rich off it? :oyvey
I have come ten million miles
And traveled on your Earth
And with his hands
The fiery beast may consummate my birth
