Jean:"I wonder how you would feel if they moved to close all the ski resorts and access for your rafting?"
Yes,those ski areas cause massive pollution....all those cars and condos ..spewing out carbon...those monster developments....taking away from nature.... the run off....the pollution from all the fuel used to heat the houses.
Do away with them!...pronto.....plus of course, all the people who 'need' to live there to take care of the ski area with carbon spewing machinery.....and have to live there consuming vast quantities of carbon fuels to stay warm in very cold climates - likely in single family houses.
They're polluting the planet only to have a place to use hot tubs (more fossil fuels spewed out into the atmosphere - useless heating of water in frigid temps)....and for having a place to 'party' after a day of sitting around drinking hot toddies and similar.
As to rafting..again, thousands spew tons of Carbon fuels getting to and from there. All the rafts, canoes, kayaks scare the native fish.....all the folks dangling legs interfere with nature There are no 'rafts and kayaks' in nature. They throw out garbage, and leave a mess behind...all for what? floating on water in inner tubes of man made pieces of wood put together?
the only way people should 'enjoy' wilderness areas is to carefully backpack everything in themselves. And carry out all their garbage. Leave nothing but footprints. They can go as far in as they want.....but no fires.....that is not 'natural' to make fires and potentially cause forest fires. Maybe a small sterno based or propane stove......
if you want to be green....not a single car run on fossil fuel, not a single house/condo ski lift run on anything but 'green' energy, no roads and no snow plows in the 'back woods'......nothing but animal power and totally green power vehicles.....on trails - no road building allowed......
Give the libs what they want..then make them live by the rules.
oh, and no helicopters or 'special surveys' using cars by the greenies. They would all have to hoof it in themselves. No fly overs other than by planes at 30,000 plus feet. Can't scare the wildlife!.....
Let' s depopulate the rural west..then we'll start on NC, VA, and New England. Plenty there to shut down. ! Lots of ski areas, state parks, the Adirondaks, etc....
