Default Roadless Release Act, YESSSSSSSSS!!!

After Loosing on Wolves, the greenies are scared. Lets put 'em down with this one too!
Widerness society alert........


Dear Jim,


Please donate today and help The Wilderness Society stop Congress from rolling back protection for millions of acres of wilderness! We must protect the precious wild places that we hold near and dear to our hearts.

Last Friday Rep. Kevin McCarthy(R-CA) introduced a bill that is the biggest attack on wilderness that we have seen in the history of The Wilderness Society.

To learn more, please see the press release below, and then please donate.

The Wilderness Society condemns bill rolling back protection for millions of acres of wilderness

Cherished places like Tongass National Forest, Utah red rock country, and much more at risk

WASHINGTON (April 15, 2011) - The Wilderness Society today condemned the introduction of a bill by Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) that would roll back existing protections and place at risk tens of millions more acres of wilderness-quality but unprotected National Forest and BLM public lands.

"This is the biggest attack on wilderness we have seen in the history of The Wilderness Society," said TWS policy analyst Paul Spitler said of the Wilderness and Roadless Area Release Act. "This proposal flies in the face of values Americans hold dear with respect to the stewardship of our public lands. It also flies in the face of nearly fifty years of legislation designating new wilderness areas. Your favorite places where you love to hunt, fish or hike? Gone. Protection for our drinking water and habitat for wildlife? Gone".

If passed, this legislation would open wilderness-caliber lands to destructive threats, including oil and gas development, uncontrolled off-road vehicle use and other unchecked development. It would essentially prohibit the Forest Service and BLM from managing pristine lands to protect their wilderness values.

"That this proposal comes from the Republican leadership in Congress makes it more alarming," Spitler said. "An attack of this magnitude does not represent the vision of Theodore Roosevelt or all the other great Republican leaders who love our public lands."

Background on the Wilderness and Roadless Area Release Act

Rep. McCarthy introduced the bill today. The proposal would:

1. Remove existing legislative protections from millions of acres of Bureau of Land Management "Wilderness Study Areas."
2. Remove existing protections on tens of millions of acres of unroaded national forest wild lands by terminating a decade-old policy that protected those places.
3. Repeal recent BLM policy that assures the agency will identify and protect lands harboring wilderness values when it prepares its land use plans.
4. Prohibit future administrations from ever protecting the wilderness characteristics on tens of millions of acres of wilderness-caliber lands.

###

The Wilderness Society is the leading public-lands conservation organization working to protect wilderness and inspire Americans to care for our wild places. Founded in 1935, and now with more than 500,000 members and supporters, TWS has led the effort to permanently protect 110 million acres of wilderness and to ensure sound management of our shared national lands. www.w

Wilderness Society is screaming bloody murder that their pet projects against folks like us may not get funding now .tsk,tsk.
also all over those signed up (I am)for their alerts to take action to block the roadless release act.
I did with a little personal touch.......


I strongly SUPPORT H.R. 1581, the Wilderness and Roadless Area Release Act, which is NOT a wholesale assault on popular policies and laws, and would open tens of millions of acres of areas on our national forests and are not suitable for wilderness designation as they are managed now.

The landscapes that would be affected by H.R. 1581 provide benefits to local communities: clean air and water, habitat for wildlife, tourism and recreation. But only if it is accessible to the general population, not just the young and fit!

This is NOT a radical and extreme piece of legislation that is distinctly out of step with the wishes of the majority of Americans. I urge you to SUPPORT the Wilderness and Roadless Area Release Act, HR 1581.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
and here is their thank you
Thanks for taking action opposing H.R. 1581, the Wilderness and Roadless Area Release Act, which would open precious wild areas to industrial development. Have a look at some of the places at risk because of this legislation.
Your message has been sent to the following decision makers:

* Representative Rick Larsen

Just in case they changed it back to their liking I copied/pasted one in my regular email to Larsen also

Bump!!
Let's try to keep up the pressure.
Here's my most recent letter to my rep who happens to support this wilderness crap.

Quote:
Dear Representative Polis,
The first line of your most recent update to me reads. "Jobs and the economy continue to be my top priority"
However restricting access to public lands in your district by supporting wilderness initiatives which are funded by organizations outside the district has hindered entrepreneurial development in Summit County. I would like to start a business that supports the motorsport community however I cannot do so when motorsport access to federal land here is in jeopardy due to the aforementioned wilderness initiatives.
Please reconsider your support of measures designed to restrict access to federal lands for recreation. My family and I urge congress to pass HR1581 Wilderness and Roadless Area Release Act of 2011 in order to release all Wilderness Study and Roadless Areas , which have been determined to be unsuitable by the BLM and Forest Service and return those lands to multiple use. Under HR1581 these lands would once again provide jobs and income to local economies. There are numerous existing regulations already in place under which these unsuitable lands can be well managed once released from the onerous, burdensome, costly and unnecessary restrictions of de facto Wilderness.

Thank you for your time and attention to the matters which directly affect your constituents.
