How many trees do these idiots think we can bare to lose. Strip these aholes naked and let 'em dwell on that in Death Valley. Aholes!

It doesn't take a genius to figure out that less trees mean more danger to the climate. Of course those that are still preaching that climate change doesn't exist couldn't care less. They need to listen to the scientists. There have been a record number of forest fires in nearly every part of the country. We don't need to have open season on logging. It all comes down to GREED.

What is wrong with these jerks. All they care about is making money, money will not give them the oxygen they need.

I read the article before forming an opinion. First of all the president might still veto the bill. They are not going to cut down every tree in Oregon and in fact they are going to save old-growth forest preserves, including tracts of land with trees that are more than 120 years old. These are the trees we want to save. Forest fires are fueled by small trees. Large trees don't burn well and frequently survive fires.
In addition to that, "It also would add 58,100 acres to the Rogue Wilderness Area in the Lower Rogue River drainage. The proposal designates 93 miles of 35 tributaries of the Rogue as either "wild," "scenic" or "recreational" under the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act."
Also "It also would ban mining on 19 tributaries on the Rogue and 11 miles on the Chetco River."

there's a saying that goes something like this :" I wonder how much money we will have after destroying all forests, polluted every river and poisoned all the soil..."
