Move to Increase Logging on Oregon Land - NYTimes.com
Move to Increase Logging on Oregon Land - NYTimes.com Last Call at the Bush Clear Cut Office. There is a whiff of desperation announcing this plan with a new administration coming in to office in less two weeks. (See map and more @ Sightline Institute )
Instead of waiting to see what Obama wants-- Earthjustice and other green groups are going to federal court to stop the sales of thousands of acres of our forests to clearcutters.
No matter that Oregon's Governor and two clean water agencies are against the sales. Here is a perfect example of an agency like BLM -- working in the same Dept of Interior as FWS -- making it possible to double the rate of logging and ruin salmon and other wildlife habitat.
