the national parks in america were set up ..and protected by men of great vision..(if personally flawed…in one of those strange twists the man who set up central park..and drove much of the energies for national parks throughout the country..was also one of the main proponents of the (now discredited) psuedo-science of eugenics…)
anyway..in the here and now..bush has been dismantling/weakening many of those safeguards…..
a spokesperson for a non-partisan group set up to protect the parks…has taken a bleak/grim view of these proposed changes….
“..”If this draft is approved, the result will be more off-road vehicles, more jet skis, more noise and less protection for the natural and cultural resources in our magnificent parks…”
and hey..!..guess who’s driving these changes…?
a mate of cheneys..who has long promoted opening national parks to jetskis and off-roaders…
