My personal veiw of things is this, its the TreeHuggers fault.
They try and control mankinds interest in the great out of doors. the idea that we as mand kind should live on like 11% of the land and avoid contact with the wild is a whole bunch on nonsence. if we as did as they asked we as a species would die. consider this, the tree hugger got over a 1,000,000 acres of desert closed in Utah to protect a Tortise, they claimed under the endangered species act that offroading was causing its demise. ten years later they went to reveiw the torises savor...they were gone, all dead. so who's fault was it? it wasn't the offroad guys.
another example that may explain the first. the Oregon BLM was being hurranged by the local nut huggers to close the ORV access to the Beachs in Oregon claiming the Snowy Plover was being threaten by ORV use. when the BLM looked closer they found the Plovers were nesting on the beachs where the ORV ran(right in the tire tracks). come to find out the BLM had great concern, so as they hunted down plovers to see if the were indede in danger they found they were thriving! the preditors that would normally have taken the eggs or killed the adults were nowhere to be seen. so when it came down to it the ORV guys have propped up the population and it was thriving because of us. If the Nut huggers had gotten their way the plovers would have suffered great losses in number because the Preditors would have over run them.
