Dear Chief Bosworth,
64 Million years ago, an Asteroid or Meteor struck the Gulf of Cancun, causing a 'nuclear winter' that destroyed most fauna and flora on Planet Earth. I believe George Bush is on track to do the same thing.
I write to oppose plans to exempt the Tongass and Chugach National Forests from the Roadless Area Conservation Rule. Please accept this letter as my official comment opposing both the proposed temporary exemption of the Tongass National Forest from the roadless rule and the advance notice of proposed rulemaking to make permanent the Tongass exemption and extend it to the Chugach National Forest.
I strongly support the original Roadless Area Conservation Rule as it was issued in January of 2001 by our last, duly elected President, William Jefferson Clinton. The roadless rule is a landmark conservation policy that has the overwhelming support of the American people. During the rule's development, 2.2 million people commented in favor of its protections for our last wild national forests.
The Tongass and Chugach forests are our nation's two largest national forests, totaling 22 million acres, and are among the crown jewels of our national forest system. They contain the world's largest intact temperate rain forest, with centuries-old trees that provide critical habitat for wolves, grizzly bears, bald eagles, and other wildlife that have been depleted in the rest of the country.
If the exemptions are allowed, nearly 50 timber sales in the Tongass alone--comprising 300,000 acres of old growth forest--could go forward. During the last 45 years, the Alaska timber industry has already logged more than 1 million acres of old growth forest and built 5,000 miles of logging roads in the Tongass. According to the General Accounting Office, these roads and timber sales were subsidized with hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars.
Bush and his toadies are giving away the forests and landscape that belong to AMERICA, not Bush or Repiglikens or Big Campaign Contributors. Yet he desecrates our beautiful, wild areas by donating our lumber to his reelection_cabal and they give back to him, in a deadly cycle. Our world is being chopped, lopped, canned, and crapped by the renegade, anti environment and insidious maurauding of the Bush crusade; the War against the Trees.
GWBush is the meteor that struck America in the year 2000.
What will be left of our natural wonders after he (this bastard) is done with them? What will the result of his trashing the Kyoto treaty because it might cost coal mine operators some money to clean up? To stop mountain-top removal? It is almost time for voters to make a decision whether or not to reverse that disaster. I oppose the changes suggested because I love the fauna and flora that exist in those environments. God placed them here, in America, for all Americans. They are not there to be parceled out by the METEOR THAT STRUCK AMERICA IN THE YEAR 2000.
