    Social Media is not hurting anything, or Anybody its just making awareness that we have all responsibility in all the things we do right or wrong that is acceptable to public eyes.

    National Parks are Government Properties. Temporary Shutdown are necessary for renovations, reforestation, replanting, rehabilitating animals, cleaning etc. Its the only way to avoid visitors for temporary time until the park is back to its prestine conditions.

    A Joshua tree is NOT a tree! It is a "Yucca" , which is kind of like a cactus. It has a kind of brittle , network like "support skeleton" with "fleshy stuff" in the spaces of the skeleton and then covered with a waxy covering to hold in water. It is not a WOODY TREE and so CANNOT be climbed like a tree. :( :( :(,

    Why the heck would people do that because some famous flake did it. People need to get real lives.

    I choose to believe it was her ignorance of how fragile a Joshua Tree is that lead to her behaviour. You would think someone on her staff would have known. Doesn't say much for celebrities...too busy looking in the camera to keep current with the world around them. :(

    The poll thing interferes with the video. Lost interest.

    Government shutdowns have been happening for decades FYI. Including during your precious Obama administration.

    "We can just let nature do it's own thing" ok then wtf are the national parks even for if we can't touch nature?
