Environment  (tags: environment, habitat, nature, protection )

- 2013 days ago -
If Congress leaves this month without taking any action to advance the nearly two dozen wilderness bills that have been stalled, it will be the first Congress since 1966 not to protect a single acre of wilderness.

I don't know why Sierra Club, and other orgs think it's an all American recreational past time to hunt and fish in our wilderness areas, and feel obligated somehow to put this in their form letters. What a perpetuation of the status quo.

Can you spread the word to your friends and family? Tell them that this Congress has failed our natural heritage and has done nothing to protect wilderness.)

Signed and noted. Thanks Cher!

"Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life."

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."

"Wilderness is not only a haven for native plants and animals but it is also a refuge from society. Its a place to go to hear the wind and little else, see the stars and the galaxies, smell the pine trees, feel the cold water, touch the sky and the ground at the same time, listen to coyotes, eat the fresh snow, walk across the desert sands, and realize why its good to go outside of the city and the suburbs. Fortunately, there is wilderness just outside the limits of the cities and the suburbs in most of the United States, especially in the West."

Author of all of the above - John Muir, the founder of the Sierra Club
