Are Environmentalists To Blame For All These Fires? “Extremist groups delay and cancel desperately needed forest management and wildfire prevention projects with reckless abandon for the damage they inflict on our federal forests and the local communities that depend on them,” "The reasoning goes like this: reductions in timber harvest on federal land have led to forests that are dangerously over-stocked. If loggers had been allowed to cut more trees, we wouldn’t be having all these fires. Nicole Strong, a forester with the Oregon State University Extension Service, says the reality is more complex than that." Thanks to radical, liberal, leftist, environmental Whackos. You killed the very 'environment' you pledged and swore to protect with Neo-Marxist, liberal policies and un voted for regulations. It's past time for a real investigation into so-called 'environmental' groups. Like true Socialists, they have succeeded to make everyone equally miserable....Congratulations. This article, being anti forest management, exposes the idiotic thinking of the socialists...such statements as: "Fires burn in our forests,” he says. “They always have and they always will. And it’s something that’s as natural and essential in our forests as the wind and the rain and the sunlight.” Well...so fucking what? Shit happens are we just supposed to bend over and take it? All I have to say is I have experienced decades of living in a rural area. When logging was allowed we had 0 fires like these. Don't believe these screwballs and their biased 'studies.'
