What are you talking about??? Steel mills and huge open pit copper and iron ore mines have which are now NPS sites caused huge environmental damage when they were in operation.

I do not know if any open pit coal mine sites are in the NPS system, but there is an underground coal mine site in the NPS system in West Virginia:
[www.nps.gov]

Although they were underground, such mines also had major negative environmental impacts and were certainly dangerous work places.

You should have just stopped with your first sentence.
