Isn't early retirement something that should be enjoyed only by grasping Republicans? Nope.Being an environmentalist doesn't mean you are anti consumption, at least in my case. It means that the resources that are used should be extracted with a little more care and thought than a clear cut or a strip mine. Sure, it costs more to get them out this way, but the true cost of environmental damage is seldom included when resources are extracted without regard for the environment.For example, a silted up stream from a clear cut (Which the forest service used the proceeds from, and then some, to build a road to the clearcut), throw in a few cows (which are not paying the market rate for grazing) and you wipe out a fishery. Who pays for restoration of the fishery, if it ever is restored? Usually you do, Mr. Seattle Taxpayer. Who paid for the summitville mine cleanup? We all did, and we still are.
