I can see evidence of man's management all around on our poor, dying earth. Did you know that those old ugly trees not only help the deer live through hard winters and that those ugly old trees are what feed and perpetuate all manner of life in the forest as well as the new "beautiful" trees? Did you know that more and more people are going back to organic gardening because the chemical fertilizers and pesticides are destroying farmlands?
I'm glad that I am an ugly old 70 and time to be cut down so I won't have to see much more results of "man's" brilliant management - where have the masses of herring gone? There was a day when you could almost walk to Gravina Island on the backs of the herring spawning everywhere.
I have lived here most of my
life because I love the beauty of the place as God created it,
if I wanted the beauty of what man has created I would go live
in a concrete paradise down south. I am sorry Mr. Stump but my
opinion is "Man" cannot be a better manager he is far
too concerned about profit and power.
