Alaska is suing President Biden's administration to block the restoration of protections for the Tongass National Forest

Alaska is suing President Biden's administration to prevent the Tongass National Forest, which was formerly open to logging and mining, from receiving protections again. Alaska claims this would harm the state's economy by preventing timber harvests and necessary mineral extraction.

      I believe that preserving natural habitats like the Tongass National Forest is crucial for the future of our planet. While I understand the state of Alaska's concerns regarding their economy, I hope that the protections put in place will ultimately benefit both the environment and the state's residents in the long run. It's important to remember that we all have a responsibility to protect our planet and the species that call it home. I hope that this lawsuit will ultimately lead to a positive outcome for everyone involved

        Unfortunately they are blocking the right thing,do they really understand the effects this logging and mining has caused already and it will continue to be worse if nothing changes?

                      This is absurd, mitigation strategies should be treated with equal importance. Its sad for Alaska to seek for such deliberations to be shelved.
