“I think [a fracking ban] would be detrimental to her [Deb Haaland] or anyone else who says you are just going to eliminate something. I’ll say this, we can innovate it. But to just say eliminating things because you don’t like it or don’t think it can be done, that’s not the American way and it’s not the American spirit.” — Incoming Senate Energy & Natural Resource Chairman and Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), E&E News – January 15th, 2021, 

In Episode 136 of District of Conservation, Gabriella discusses three matters: President Trump’s conservation legacy, whether or not Senator Manchin will vote against extreme environmental policies, and the problem with President-elect Biden’s decision to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline permit.
