The new park proposal would have REDUCED the number of snowmobiles allowed daily from 720 which had been in effect for three years down to 540. A maximum and an average are two different things that you can't compare although the author attempts to . The snowmobiles use automobive engines that didn't even exist until 2002 which is after the Clinton term.

Nature is living just fine in the park and if they can handle over ten thousand unregulated vehicles daily in the summertime then they ahve no problem handling 540 regulated snowmobiles in the wintertime.

Its just there are special interest groups who want snowmobiles out and are twisting the facts of the years of study to suit their needs.

I agree with this letter. Keeping our wildlife wild involves not disturbing their habitat with loud machines that spread pollution.
