Employment: The Human Factor
I believe clearcut logging is a crime, and yet I am still the girl who lived at the edge of a logged-over national forest. I understand the anger behind the oft-cited "kill a spotted owl" sticker. Who is going to save the people who work in the woods and mills, their families, their communities? If we as a country are deciding after five centuries of white-led cultural and environmental rampage across North America to save the spotted owl and fragments of its habitat, then we as a people need to be accountable to the people who will be unemployed, possibly homeless and hungry, as a result. To turn away from this is to act as if loggers and logging communities are more complicit with environmental destruction than the rest of us. This excerpt is from an article that originally appeared in Orion. 195 Main St. Great Barrington, MA, 01230.
