I doubt each and every point in the article. As Val pointed out, the cattle part is crap, as you figure one acre per head, but you take the cow to market around 450-500 pounds. I seriously doubt they only get 150 lbs of meat off them.
Species become extinct, that is the natural order of things - get over it and stop blaming us for everything. The Spotted Owl is a perfect example of
Eco-freaks knowing nothing. After all the lost jobs and tree saving, the Spotted Owl is still going by the wayside. Guess what. The Barred Owl, a
larger and sturdier owl, is taking its place. Nature isn't losing anything.
The individual that wrote that is probably the same type that cries and wets themsleves when forests are thinned and cut. He'd probably accuse Bush
of making his logger friends wealthy by doing so. Since the idiots have cows over logging, we now have fires that don't just clear the underbrush,
but burn the entire forest to the ground. Such fires are unnatural, but are created by well-intentioned eco-freaks.
Pass me the steak sauce and a beer.
