Stephen Graf August 13, 2019 at 5:18 pm - Reply I’m glad that TBM and its editors have what it takes to run articles like this in the magazine. Some folks will never be able to connect the dots. Some folks can connect the dots, but don’t care. Then there are those few that can see the big picture and are not afraid to call out the destruction of our biosphere for what it is: immoral, greedy, cowardice. Keep up the good work Mr. Holbrook! Mark Wood August 23, 2019 at 6:06 pm - Reply I appreciate Mr. Holbrook’s enthusiasm for “Wilderness” areas and “Wilderness” designations. I am not opposed to “Wilderness” but it is becoming more and more the topic of conversation, and collaboration. The question always comes up as to “How much “Wilderness” is enough?”. One could ask, “Is Mr. Holbrook concerned more about the situation of oil exploration and production, or the desire to create more “Wilderness?” Maybe, both. After a bit of web surfing and internet exploration I have found that Alaska currently has over 57 million acres of “Wilderness”. The states of Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming have a bit more than “the million acres of wilderness” as stated in the article. In fact, those 3 states have a combined total of approximately 10 million acres. I support energy independence and renewable resources along with preserving our hunting heritage and hunting areas. I just feel that we should not skirt or eliminate some information whenever we share our views or try to get our point across. We all want to make our own personal decisions on the best information we can get. Thank-you, Mr. Holbrook, for a very informational article and I hope you don’t mind the additional information.
