4.4% of the land area of the United States is in the National Wilderness Protection System (signed into law by a republican by the way). A lot of that is "Rocks and Ice". Somehow, I don't think that is as horribly crippling to the economy as you seem to think.

Heck, I was in Seattle over the summer spending money go to Mount Ranier, Olyimpic National Park, and viewing those job killing killer whales. I wouldn't have been there if it was all clear cuts and dead fish.

Come to Washington and see our clear cuts and dead fish!!

Not much of a tourist slogan.
