Phosphate mining and our hope for change

Phosphate mining, its jobs, and its environmental impact are big things in SE Idaho-

A lot of the folks I talked with today spontaneously and favorably brought up this article by Marv Hoyt, Idaho Representative for the Greater Yellowstone Coalition. It appeared in the Pocatello, Idaho newspaper. March 24, 2010.

Jackson Hole News&Guide on the anti-wolf protest

Most of the oufitters’ “facts” were discredited by the feds (Jimenez)-

Of course the facts don’t matter.

I can’t believe one outfitter said he’d be scared if alone at night on a broken down snowmobile in the Gros Ventre Wilderness if he didn’t have a weapon. Well, I guess I would be too — afraid of hypothermia if I didn’t do things right, but that’s not what he meant.

Wyoming Game and Fish shouldn’t, and can’t guarantee outfitters the number of elk they want in each hunting subunit. Wolves are not the reason for natural geographic drift and shift of game populations.  They happen regardless. Wolves just push the drift in a different direction.
