Ecology is not what this American pioneering society wants it to be, but what it is

I see the USDA Forest Service is proposing to amend all land management plans for 128 districts across the country. It is hoping to conserve and steward existing and recruit future old growth forests conditions. It is now asking for public comment to a decision that has already made.

In our helter skelter approach to building a nation and over-populating the earth, humans have changed the Earth’s conditions. An environment that created life, humans in the process, has been irreversibily modifed. Now, it appears that we, as a nation, have decided to continue to ignore ecology and adopt the recurring mythology of Genesis 1:28 and recreate conditions that existed before ecology was a science.

When will it be understood that ecology is not what this American pioneering society wants it to be, but what it is. Ultimately, the human will adapt to live with nature or nature will endure without him.

The US Forest Service will spend millions to feed and shelter no one. The money would be better invested in developing a mature social approach to growth and development that adapts with a changing environment.
