RE: E-M:/ National Parks on the Political Chopping Block

Yeow!

Here's a key snip from the post for those of you who skip clicking on these links:

"Paul Hoffman -- deputy assistant secretary for fish, wildlife and parks -- is looking to rewrite the mission of the national parks.
<snip>
"Hoffman wants to upgrade grazing and mining to "park purposes," allow cellphone towers and low-flying airplanes within national parks, and allow snowmobiles on all paved roads in every park. In addition, he wants to take away the park managers' abilities to use laws such as the Clean Water Act and the Clean Air Act to protect the parks from development. Finally, he wants to deemphasize dark skies and quiet even though they are conditions needed by wildlife."


This is the kind of thing the Administration can only get away with if they can do it quietly. We should all get the word out through all available channels.

With a National Park (Isle Royale) and two National Lakeshores
(Pictured Rocks and Sleeping Bear Dunes) in Michigan, citizens should
pay attention to these latest attacks on the purposes and integrity of the
national park system and its philosophy.
