Logging didn't start west of the Sierras until the 1850's. What timberland
was unclaimed/uncut by the early 1900's was placed in federal trust to
create a stable timber supply. And you-betcha don't blame it all on dem dare
swedes...

No they're not all good, depends on how/what their used for; as well as the
alternatives....

This oughta wind you up but good: DDT has SAVED tens of millions more people
than it ever injured (ever heard of malaria?). PCB's are nowhere near as
toxic as nicotine or caffeine or laundry detergent or Chlorox.
? How many people DIE from malaria each YEAR, globally? (Hint: the number
has 7 figures)

(Disregarding those who simply rendered disabled for a month each year)
