VIDEO: The appalling economic, environmental and social costs of federal control
Don’t let the cheery opening graphic fool you. This video chronicles the crushing cost to counties in the West of federal control over lands and resources. Ideologically-driven, unscientific policies formulated by left-wing special interests have devastated counties and communities throughout the West, with the most heartbreaking instances coming from formerly great timber towns in Washington and Oregon.
This video examines the progressively weakening and increasingly threatened circumstances of U.S. counties that host national forests. It was produced by the Not Without a Fight! Coalition, an informal group comprised of Shoshone County, Idaho’s county commissioners and three of the county’s four school district superintendents. This is a noncommercial documentary; it runs just under a half-hour.
