First Lie, Then Deny
I'm looking for organized and good data to read on the topic. So far everything I read is fairly full of rhetoric and very unhelpful. I read a lot about a stifled economy however, I've not noticed this area to be change based on the amount of land that is protected.
I love the land here and I've spend the last four years in Kentucky fighting to save land in the Appalchians. Kentucky's state government isn't interested in a sustainable economic development so we are welcoming the federal regulations that are protecting our precious natural resources.
I want to see how this situation is different. I'm not worried as much about local citizens as I am about corporations coming in and exploiting the land. Therefore I tend to believe that federal protection is a good thing.. However, I am not educated enough in the subject so I am not saying I have a stance. I just would love to be directed to good data, not rhetoric.
