Re: E-M:/ Granholm should consider her conservation legacy

I think the article cited and the idea raised here are right on track. Conservationists need to exert some leadership here. This will have huge positive economic impacts down the line despite objections from some special interest groups.

My experience with the Governors office is that they need informed input (if not pressure) from conservationists and environmental groups. These groups also need to support the DNR and DEQ and monitor the political pressures on them. These list serves provide excellent venues for getting the information out, but that should be the beginning, not the end. Many state and local groups need to get involved.

For most governors, the Big Three are the economy, crime and education --
the issues that define their campaigns and time in office. But in
history's rearview mirror, it is often conservation that makes a legacy.
What will Gov. Jennifer Granholm's legacy be?
