Forest Rules Tossed

US District Court Judge Phyllis Hamilton ruled that the Bush rules allowing forest managers more discretion regarding environmental studies for resource extraction fail to adequately consider the effects on the environment and did not properly gather public comment. I do not propose that the rule changes were across the board bad for the forests but the previous status quo was. So, we're back to that. And why are we back to that?

There are environmental whackos who do not want a stick of wood cut, a road built, or a hole dug, they'll always be around and so will flat earthers and others. The reason we're back in the mess is not that these people exist, it is the BushCo arrogance and disregard for law that puts us there. It is hard work to amend existing law and it is even harder work to develop good policy. BushCo never seems to want to do the work, they want short cuts. Executive fiat is a poor way to run a country, the excluded parties don't like it and the courts don't like it and the chances are the hambone that tries it is just that, a hambone, and the fiat is junk.

Our forests have some serious problems that need addressed and they have some real uses as natural resource sources, these need not be mutually exclusive but stupid positions guarantee that they are. I'm still trying to think of something this administration has done right, it may take awhile...
