Obama launches “Great Outdoors” initiative

This news is big guns in states like Montana, where this blog is written…I do not know what makes news but I see a shift where People Magazine Fodder bumps news like this. Yesterday I heard news of Rocky Mountain outbreaks of pine beetles devesting huge areas of Rocky Mountain Forests. There is a chance that huge droughts will occur in Panhandle , Idaho and Western Montana…both of these large news items will impact a huge swath of the USA. This means that Barack Obama’s ” Great Outdoor’s” Innitiative will be impacted…how? I have opinions about that. They, for now are just that, opinions.

Associated Press-Washington-Barack Obama is launching a drive to protect more sections of the nation’s landscape and to encourage more outdoors activities by Americans.

The president said Friday the initiative will involve a series of listening sessions throughout the nation to solicit an array of ideas.

Obama said conservation is an integral part of economic growth, and that his new program also will create jobs. He promised that it won’t be a big federal program driven from Washington.
