The Bush administration devised a plan allowing managers of the nation's 155 national forests to have more leeway in approving logging and other commercial projects with less formal environmental review.

Future eco-analyses, which outline the impact of a proposed activity on plant and animal life, can take years to complete. The new rules envision a more flexible approach that could be completed in months eliminating unnecessary paperwork.

Hahaa we're all screwed!

In 100 years they will look back on all that has been lost.

It is heart-wrenching to think of vast tracts of wild vigin trees lost to stupid, sick, psychotic, rich people.

Makes me want to support the Church of Euthanasia. And start with the people responsible for mindless destruction.

Uh, you do realize that for every tree cut down 10 more are planted? Most lumber companies know that if you cut a tree down you gonna have to plant another so you will always have trees to cut. But National Forests? WTF? Bush, this is a tree, with out it we all die. This creates air, how you ask? Well, if daddy hadn't bought your report card since 2nd grade you would know.

Jeeezz....this is so sad,when are we going to learn?....we need tighter laws worldwide on deforestation and projects that involve mass destruction of trees,we already no that this a global problem...what are we doing??....i know some projects must proceed but with better evaluation of proposed sites for felling and logging we might stand a chance of creating better awareness....its the beggining of the end.

The forest fires that have burned millions of "Trees" have been caused by the stupidity of such statements. The environemntal impact studies once required the "counting" of each individual animal and even fish in an area to be harvested or even cleaned. This took up to 10 years in some cases. Clutter of dead limbs and trees along with underbrush provided "fuel" for the recent fires. This new managment will reduce fires and save your beloved trees!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There are more trees in American now then when the Mayflower hit that stupid rock in Plymouth Mass.

James the lesser, and how many of those seedlings survive to maturity? Feeding deer, drought, erosion.

Dr Horacid, the reason that helped the forests burn was the excessive underbrush and growth. Clearcutting the mature stands does not address that problem.

Under natural conditions periodic fires burn the undergrowth out and leave the mature trees standing. This is the condition someone who cared about the forests would want them returned to.

Now instead of applying the correct solution of clearing enough of the undergrowth to create a semi-natural condition they are going to rip out and destroy the mature growth.

But cutting down all the mature forest does not create a natural condition.
Mostly when timber companies cut they clear-cut and rake the trees over the landscape destroying much of the vegetation that would hold the soil. Often when it rains the logged area turns into a complete mudslide. Filling up rivers where Salmon still spawn and wipe out another declining species in the process. Stripping away centuries of topsoil where a new forest might have otherwise re-grown.

Anyone who cares about the natural environment has to wish the most horrible things to happen to Bush and his 'R*pe the land for profit' supporters.

I'm telling you, hence the title of this topic. Bush has declared a Jihad on US natural forests/enviroment.

Yehaw?

And poor Georgie, he's loosing Jihad allies who are dramatically distanced themselves from his attempt to sabotage international action to combat global warning.

Tree farmers dont go and cut down rainforest for easy profits, they got large areas with for example 10 years of cycle cutting 1/10 trees for each year down and always got replacements for old ones, but this stuff is bollocks. Wood price isnt really so high, unless we talk about some old oaks that make luxury goods. Its like making legal to hunt near extintion species.

Forest fires have reason, those refresh whole plain and allow new growth without too great damage, while cutting open too large areas just cause it to become desert. Wonder why middle of US got much tornados / hurricanes? Look amount of open cuts, farms and count 1+1=2, expanding open areas just increase power of those natural disasters.
