I wan't clear. I should have described their plan in more detail.

1. It would allow the loggers to take a certain number of dead trees in a certain area. This wouldn't exceed safe limitations. I don't know what those are since the press hasn't reported it or it isn't finalized yet.

2. They would create "buffer" zones in the forest. This would be wide enough so the if one part of the forest caught on fire other parts wouldn't.

3. They would construct roads that would allow easy acess into the forest.

4. Parks and national lands would still be protected, thus loggers could only do 1-3. Obviuosly current laws still apply.

There we have it. I think it is a good policy. You are obviously right in the idea that a clean forest isn't nessacarily a healthy forest, but I don't think this is what the plan describes. Most enviromentalist when you look at their policy are basiclly are for bigger government and if the enviroment gets in the way the enviroment gets the shoved out of the way to make apce for the government. Also can you name a single person who is anti-enviroment?

God Bless,
