U.S. Government Website Photo Swaps Green Hills for a Mountain of Coal

Washington, April 25 (RHC)-- In the United States, the Bureau of Land Management, the BLM, has debuted a new cover photo for its website: a towering pile of coal.  The 2004 photograph was supplied by the Peabody Coal Company.  It shows an 80-foot coal seam at an open-cut coal mine. 

Until recently, the BLM website’s main photograph showed two boys wearing backpacks gazing across a wild landscape of rolling hills.  The website’s new look comes after Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke lifted an Obama-era ban on coal mining leases on federal land.
