Forest Development Ban Reinstated

On 9/20/06, a federal judge struck down Bush administration rules for developing nearly all roadless forest land (close to sixty million acres). This effectively reinstated the Clinton administration ban on logging and drilling activity in national forests.

I was glad to hear it. The gates to National forests should not swung open to commercial interests. I'm sure one of our greatest American Presidents, and a great naturalist, Teddy Roosevelt, would have been appalled at the desire to turn national forests and arctic wildlife preserves over to private industry.
