"Maybe He Should Be Cited for Contempt of Public Intelligence" - JPG
To indicate his support for land closures under the 1964 Wilderness Act, Herblock portrayed Secretary of the Interior James Watt using earth moving equipment while failing to convince an American family that he was protecting the environment. Under the Wilderness Act, government lands open to development were to be closed indefinitely in 1983. Environmentalists accused Watt of undermining portions of the act with his proposed legislation to reopen lands to development in 2000.
