Bureaucratic Threat to the Environment

November 05, 2002

"White House Reinterpreting Law on Environmental Reviews" (Nov. 3) should wake all Americans to the very real threat of destruction to our national treasures. If the Bush administration succeeds in reversing current environmental laws, the legacy of unspoiled wilderness and wildlife habitat will be lost forever and will go the way of the rapidly disappearing rain forests. Our children will be denied the opportunity to observe and appreciate nature and all its marvels.

This is not just an issue for environmentalists; it affects everyone. We should be doing all that we can to preserve these special places. Once they are gone, they will never be restored.

The Bureau of Land Management and the Department of the Interior are out of control and need to weigh the consequences of their actions. The Environmental Protection Agency's role in conservation needs to be strengthened rather than being rendered impotent.
