The aesthetic qualities of sightlines aside, can there really be any "scientific" debate that, at the very least, logging in a watershed is risky if not downright shortsighted? If logging companies would honestly post a sign at all their cut sites reading, "This operation has gone forever without screwing up a stream, seriously eroding soil or in some other way laying waste to the very systems that keep us alive." maybe then. But accidents happen. And in a town not too many years away from their last boil water advisory, what erosive reason could possibly be good enough to proceed with logging a watershed?
Weyerhaeuser and CRB, according to a spokesfolk, are like any other businesses; they need to make money. They can make it by logging a highly visible mountain feeding Pembertons municipal wells. Why not? Why not indeed. "What wouldnt I do for money?" the hooker asks the john.
Some day well learn. Maybe before we run out of clean water and clean air. Maybe not. Im not betting one way or another.
