Letter: Praise for Beem on national park
Kudos to Edgar Allen Beem in last week's Universal Notebook when he states, "Now is the time for wholesale conservation ... The future of the North Woods does not lie in wood chips and toilet paper, it lies in keeping the largest expanse of unbroken woodlands east of the Mississippi intact."
May I add that the future of the Maine woods does not lie in the construction of Industrial Wind either, which fragments and destroys habitat for countless animals, birds and fish.
The blasting of ridge lines, the access roads, the herbicides, and the clear-cutting for unreliable electricity shipped out of state will forever change Maine's natural beauty.
