Developers don’t help as do logging, mining

RaymondFebruary 24, 2014 

In response to Ethel Dick in her letter Feb. 16, everybody does blame big oil, timber, and the mining industry for our problems with the environment. But when they get done mining they put the dirt back; when the timber companies are done logging they replant.

So what happens when a large developer goes in and digs up 100 acres of land, cuts down all the trees and removes all plants and grass? What does the developer put back? Concrete and blacktop. So how does that help the environment?

So just maybe you people should start cleaning up your own backyards before you start complaining.
