A fat man’s defense of wilderness


I don’t know how many acres of Bureau of Land Management property in Utah should be set aside as wilderness. But my gut tells me there should be plenty.

… Have we become so selfish and so greedy that we have to have everything right now, as cheap as possible, no matter the cost to the environment and to those who follow us? Can’t we choose to share not only the beauty of Utah’s wild places but their bounty with future generations?

I might be a fat, aging man. But I still think it’s a good idea to set aside as much wilderness as possible.
