I know we'd rather be talking about carbs, trannys, and events, but the environmental movement is working each day to shut us down. Take a moment sometime and learn about what the enviros are doing...know thy enemy.

Do two things: 1) Check out the web page for Southwest Center for Biological Diversity". You'll see their views about us and how they use science to their advantage; 2) See their call for help below (they're just as dedicated as we are:


Logging and road building have devastated old-growth forests in California's
Sierra Nevada, threatening such species as the California spotted owl, Pacific
fisher, pine marten, and red fox. Off-road vehicles, water diversions and
livestock grazing are degrading habitat for hundreds of species including
the Little willow flycatcher,Yellow-legged frog and Yosemite toad.

The U.S. Forest Service is now taking comments on a draft plan which is
supposed to curb these abuses. Its preferred alternative, however, does
not provide enough protection for forests or streams. Please email them
by August 11th and say:

- Alternative 5 provides the best long-term protection for watersheds,
old-growth forests, roadless areas, tourism, recreation, and wildlife.

- Alternative 5 will best protect water quality. Water is the single most
valuable economic commodity in the Sierra Nevada’s national forests.

- Alternative 5 would cost taxpayers far less than the timber industry's
choice and would cost less than the budget for the Forest Service’s
preferred alternative.
