Profile of Carl Ross, Founder of Save America's
Forests, in the NEW YORK TIMES
Summer 1992Wild Earth-Two articles: one by Ned Fritz and another by Reed Noss.
Ned Fritz explains why legislation to protect biodiversity and stop clearcutting (The Forest Biodiversity and Clearcutting Prohibition Act - H.R. 1969) is important to protect federal forest lands. He also explains that other legislation of that time - the Ancient Forest bill - could be combined with the anti-clearcutting legislation into one bill to give the greatest amount of forest protection.
The Act to Save America's Forests , which was introduced 4 years after Ned wrote this article, is exactly that - a combination of both bills - and Ned Fritz did support the Act to Save America's Forests.
Reed Noss countered Ned's article in Wild Earth with a rebuttal, criticizing the Anti-Clearcutting legislation because it allowed logging. Noss did not consider Fritz's suggested combined legislation.
