<< Well - having been botha ski instructor and a raft guide, and having friends that make pretty good livings from protected forests by guiding and being tour operatrors, I guess I disagree that saving the last 5% of unlogged forests is a bad thing that hurts jobs. So we ran out at 95% instead of 100%. We don't need to destroy everything, do we?>>



We'll just close those ski slopes to "protect" them and keep those nasty river befoulers and their unnatural raftsw off the river to prevent them from disturbing the salmon, or whatever.

The idea of "saving" wilderness for the use of people is now obsolete, and we can get on with the job of getting the tourists out of the wilderness areas so they can be preserved for untemmeled "nature."

Sorry, but your job goes on the trash heap along with the others destroyed by environmentalists.
