If the federal judge and his environmentalist friends insist on removing the Green Mountain lookout, let them do it themselves. To avoid being disingenuous they shouldn’t do any of the following:
Use helicopters or any other man-made machinery.
Use horses or any other animals — they would damage the trails and pollute the forest with droppings and “emissions.”
Inhale — that would rob the trees of precious oxygen.
Exhale or emit methane — these would pollute the environment with carbon dioxide and noxious gases.
Leave any body waste — it should be packed out.
Use any fossil-fuel vehicles to reach the trailhead.
Seem ridiculous? No more so than the notion that a tiny lookout in a giant wilderness is hurting the environment.
Can’t comply? Then just leave the lookout alone. The vast majority of voters/taxpayers would agree.
