In National Forests, What Use Is 'Wise Use'?
I was delighted to see this article on the "wise use" groups' successful challenge of the "environmentalist" stance of obstructionism.When all the smoke has cleared, it will be recognized that the people who provide raw materials for industry are the true environmentalists. It is only those people that can know and understand just what balance is needed to provide the goods people demand and at the same time husband resources for the future. This is particularly true of the lumber industry. These people are working with a self-renewing resource, a miracle in itself. Donald Bradley, Plainfield, N.H.
