the new Trunk Road

I hate the Trunk road project. Its so wasteful. It use to be a narrow windy little road through the wilderness. now its like an interstate. they mowed down virgin birch and spruce forests that took a 1000 years to grow. they made the dam thing do wide and invasive and for what, to let people who commute to get home a few minutes earlier. hey you want to get home sooner don't live so far from your job.
this state needs to create a position, call him or her natures advocate with the power to shut down or scale back these huge road projects. we've learned a few things in the last 50 years about how scarce the natural world is and how fragile it is. its time we start to apply some of that knowledge. we need to stop these kinds of projects from continuing to happen over and over. i for one would strongly support a policy of no more primary roads period.
if you disagree with what i say, please keep it to yourself. and I don't mean any disrespect by that but i'm really only interested in hearing from people who actually think the natural world is a valuable even a sacred thing. sometimes i feel like i'm the only one who knows this.
