You are mistaken about the impetus for the healthy forests initiative.  
It was driven by local demands and expertise, not by industry lobbying.  
It shows the strength of the REAL environmental movement, not the stuffed 
shirt fund raisers who have never set foot in the woods.  It's time you 
woke up and realized you have been led around by the nose by a bunch of 
fund raising phonies who don't do anything but raise more funds from 
suckers like you.
