More Environmental BS

This time in Oregon.

The largest proposed salvage logging operation in decades — a plan the Bush administration touted as necessary to protect the future health of a Northwest forest ravaged by wildfire — would do severe, long-term damage, according to an Environmental Protection Agency review.

To the Eco-Freaks, ANY logging is bad. They stop salvage of beetle killed timber, fire killed timber, any timber. They shut down logging for any reason, because to their ignorant egotistical minds, they're "saving the earth". They don't care about the truth, they just want to feel good.

The Forest Service's draft plans to log 29,000 acres blackened by the 2002 Biscuit fire would cause erosion and sediment-loading in key watersheds that are supposed to be protected for salmon, the review said.

29,000 acres. Sounds like a lot, right? But the burn area is half a million acres. 500,000 acres! So the logging plan only covers 5.8% of the burn area!

Never trust the Eco-Freaks. EVER. They do not listen to reason, they do not care about the truth, they only care about their agenda.
