Lake Tahoe eco-holocaust?
Addressing the 55th annual Sierra-Cascade Logging Conference in Reno, Bonnicksen warns that Lake Tahoe may be next to succumb to such eco-radical-abetted devastation. "Tahoe could burn and if it does, it will be virtually unstoppable," declared Bonnicksen. "I don't think people in the Tahoe basin fully appreciate how dangerous it is."
Confirming this dire forecast were Plumas County (California) Commissioner Bill Dennison, San Bernadino County fire marshall Peter Briety and Don Sterrenburg, president of a homeowners' association. "The men noted similarities in conditions at Tahoe and the ones that existed before fires destroyed more than 3,600 homes and killed two dozen people in Southern California last year," reported the Associated Press. "They urged more intensive logging and thinning of forests miles away from residential areas."
