    Environmentalists putting tribal members out of work

    Columnist says environmental groups don’t want tribes making money off of their natural resources:
     In some cases, as in north­ern Arizona, the enviros are proving successful in creating unemployed Navajos. The En­vironmental Protection Agen­cy last fall forced the owners of the Navajo Generating Sta­tion near Page into a deal to shut down one of the plant’s three generators, thus reduc­ing the need for Navajo coal miners and plant workers by a third.
