The Bureau of Land Management 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 came a week after Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke lifted an Obama-era ban on coal mining leases on federal land.
