Outdoor recreation and land conservation and preservation generates $1 trillion in economic activity and supports 9.4 million in jobs each year in the United States, according to a study by the National Fish and Wildlife

Outdoor recreation and land conservation and preservation generates $1 trillion in economic activity and supports 9.4 million in jobs each year in the United States, according to a study by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. Unfortunately, there is an effort underway, led by Rep. Kevin McCarthy of California, to undermine four decades of conservation efforts. Under consideration in the House and Senate is theWilderness and Roadless Area Release Act, which would open all roadless areas across the country to industrial development.

The roadless act, also known as the “Great Outdoors Giveaway” because it would benefit a few special interests at the expense of our wild land and health, opens access for “responsible multiple uses” in an area roughly the size of Wyoming, the tenth largest state in the country.  “Responsible multiple uses,” according to Rep. McCarthy, includes granting access to oil, gas and lumber interests. Keep in mind that drilling, logging and mining are already permitted in 74 percent of our national forests and other public land.

It would also prohibit local communities from protecting their resources, as The Salt Lake City Tribune noted: “No consideration would be given to any particular parcel, regardless of its value for recreation, watershed, wildlife or cultural antiquities. No suggestions from local groups would be considered, such as the discussions going on in San Juan County now over what land qualify for wilderness designation. This bill would simply erase the years spent by hundreds of people to categorize millions of acres according to their particular values.”

The fact that recreation, conservation and preservation sustain 9.4 million jobs each year in the United States is particularly relevant for small business owners.  In the Central Valley, where I live, businesses now sustain former Gold Rush towns like Placerville, Sonora, Merced, Mariposa and Oakhurst (to name a few). With the economy still weak and families already struggling to make ends meet, we can’t afford to compromise small business owners whose livelihoods depend on outdoor activities like camping, hiking and fishing.  Given our region’s economic situation, it’s all the more unfortunate that one of our own representatives in Congress is attacking public land.

Rep. McCarthy’s Great Outdoors Giveaway bill is a reminder that fossil fuels are a dirty 19th Century technology and have an ever-shrinking place in our 21st Century world.  To allow some of our countries most pristine and spectacular landscapes to be exploited under the guise of “responsible multiple uses” and “access” is at best deceitful.  To compromise healthy and undisturbed land that provides and safeguards clean air and water resources is irresponsible.  This land belongs to our children and grandchildren. It’s our responsibility to preserve it for them. —Pablo Rodriguez

As noted earlier, this in turn was possible solely because the lead background contamination had been reduced from 1 10 6 grams to almost 1 10 12 grams per analysis. Yet the greater waste of time is waiting 10 minutes for a computer to boot up completely, just so you can check your email. When I said I didn t want to see you anymore why did you choose that particular statement to be the only one you ever listened to.

Some of you say the managers are rude but that isn t the half of it, once I became a part of the maintenance crew I started working allot of nights and this one manager one day kept passing by me every time I went to take trash or switch to doing something else and had to go to my station to get other items.
