Minnesota environmental report a must read

by Sean Niemic - University student

As president of Collegians for a Constructive Tomorrow, which focuses on environmental issues, I read with great interest a new report on natural resources written by one of our advisors and adjunct professor at the University of Minnesota, Dr. Kent Kaiser, and issued by Center of the American Experiment, a think tank in Minneapolis.
CFACT is a free market environmental organization that believes the solutions to current problems are found by the power of ingenuity and innovation, not by overreaching government.
The report, âÄúNatural Resources: Recommendations for MinnesotaâÄôs New Governor and Legislature,âÄù is extremely readable. Once I started reading it, I simply could not put it down.
The report is based on five principles: sustainability, stewardship, sharing, equity and globalization. I am recommending the report to all students interested in environmental issues. This report is the first IâÄôve ever seen that takes a truly global view of natural resource management.
I enthusiastically recommend the report to people interested in MinnesotaâÄôs natural resources and outdoors, whether their interest is in forestry, mining, or fish and game. Readers can download the report at www.americanexperiment.org, like I did, or call 612-338-3605 to get a hard copy sent to them.
