Read the following passage: It is quite true that the flooding of Glen Canyon has opened up to the motorboat explorer parts of side canyons that formerly could be reached only by people able to walk. But the sum total of terrain visible to the eye and touchable by hand and foot has been greatly diminished, not increased. Because of the dam the river is gone, the inner canyon is gone, the best parts of the numerous side canyons are gone all hidden beneath hundreds of feet of polluted water, accumulating silt, and mounting tons of trash. This portion of Glen Canyon and who can estimate how many cubic miles were lost is no longer accessible to anybody. (Except scuba divers.) And this, do not forget, was the most valuable part of Glen Canyon, richest in scenery, archaeology, history, flora and fauna. Edward Abbey, "The Damnation of a Canyon"

D. The answer is D because the author talks about how the land is no longer touchable to all, instead only those on motorboats and scuba divers. The way he continuously discusses the limitations of the canyon land available for people support the bias.
