A Burning Issue: A Case for Abolishing the U.S. Forest by Robert H. Nelson

By Robert H. Nelson

In A Burning Issue, Robert Nelson makes a compelling case for abolishing the U.S. woodland provider. Created within the early twentieth century to supply medical administration of the nation's forests, the U.S. woodland provider was once, for a few years, considered as a version corporation within the federal govt. Nelson contends that this popularity is undeserved and the woodland Service's functionality at the present time is unacceptable. not just has medical administration confirmed most unlikely in perform, it's also objectionable in precept. in addition, Nelson argues that the woodland provider lacks a coherent imaginative and prescient and prefers to sponsor merely trendy environmental solutions―most lately environment administration. Creatively and cogently describing its heritage and screw ups, Nelson advocates changing the provider with a decentralized approach to regulate the security of our nationwide forests. A Burning Issue is a provocative examine that gives insightful environmental coverage alternatives.
