In the future, could we get a forest management program that actually manages the forests? Because, as it stands today, all those hundreds of square miles of trees that were set aside “for historical purposes” are now gone. Burnt to the ground. Along with lives, homes, dreams, and hope of a future. Agenda 21 management tactics. They are a lot like not eating your cake, because you want to enjoy it years from now. You want your children to enjoy the cake too; so, nobody touch it. It doesn’t work out so well for the cake either.

Feel free to share if you are trying to explain the situation to others.
For reference, Mordor is in the lower right corner.
