    We should be logging more in this country, and the non-protected federal forests are very under-harvested.

    I live in the middle of a redwood forest and we have three or four mills left open in our county (down from like 40) and our docks are filled with timber and lumber from South America.

    If the federal government wants to control 33% of our land and the natural resources within that, then they need to do so to maximize it's sustainable value. BTW Mayr, I know you're going for the joke, but no one is advocating logging in parks. Most federal land is composed of national forests and BLM land, which is suppose to be utilized.

    Through the intervention of humans, there is more forest land today in America than there was in 1492.

    Around here the bumper stickers say, "Can't log it, can't mine it, can't graze it. Let it burn."
