I do in fact think the companies involved in the logging industry do care about conservation. they all employ foresters and the health of the forest is paramount to them harvesting a good product. I know in the cities they are portrayed as monsters devouring every tree they can. The Sierra Club (for one) was smart, they told their story to the city people that have no clue how it really is, nor do they care, it's not their little part of the world :)<quoted text>
People only see it from their little perspective. If you want a job, you want a job. Conservation laws are not about the individual, however.
What do you suppose would happen if there were no conservation laws? Do you think logging companies give a damn if an animal goes extinct?
Not saying the government is perfect and doesnt make mistakes when it comes to policies, but it beats the alternative.
As far as the science being revised, you would be mistaken. They have never lessened any of the laws, they add to them continuously. I know several government scientists, they have never and I mean never admitted to any mistakes.
