Obama's Great Outdoor Initiative is not a bottom-up approach, but once again a top-down effort that will create more government programs and reduce local control.
California is criminalizing recreational behavior in the state parks, writing tickets for the likes of rafting wihtout a life jacket and a dip without a suit. The fines they collect help fill the state coffers.
Free Market Environmentalism is better at managing natural resources than the government. The oil spill clean-up in the Gulf of Mexico is a recent example.
Stimulus spending for green jobs is short sighted. The solar panels produced can make electricty for less, but will eventually cost more to replace.
In most cases, recycling is a profligate use of natural and human resources.
Recyling household trash makes people feel warm and fuzzy, but its not good for the environment.

Federal Land management has largely led to poor stewardship. Permanenty funding the Land and Water Conservation Act to provide $900 miilion annually for more land purchases is a bad decison. The feds should focus on managing the 25 pecent of the US that they already own.
The Federal Government continues to acquire more land, much of it is donated, but the cost of land maintenance at this scale is immense and the feds do not have the funds to do the job.
China's growing wealth and economic power means it also vested in seeing the US propser as it holds a huge amount of US debt and remains an important trading partner.
PERC's Roger Meiners writes that calls for massive changes in all aspects of modern life from transportation to food production in order to reduce carbon emissions are unrealistic. Repeated failures of such utopian experiments suggests extreme caution.
As our quality of life continues to improve, the world's prevailing sentiment continues to be one of a disastrous future, all because the population has reached 7 billion. Are these worries real or just a scare tactic?
Endangered African wildlife are conserved on Texas ranches that have switched from money-losing livestock to profitable rare and endangered species.
The uncertainties of tribal governance and judicial systems has a chilling effect on economic development on reservations. A point in case is the Grand Canyon Skywalk.
New Forest Service policy calls for more sustainability even for communities and recreation. Trying to make everything sustainable simply makes no sense.
US Congress passes legislation opposing catch share fisheries one of the most promising management schemes for protecting fisheries and marine habitat
In the Wall Street Journal, Gary Libecap and Robert Glennon discuss the West's outdated water laws. A policy overhaul, they argue, would allow efficient water markets and reward conservation.
As pressure mounts to declare Utah's Greater Canyonlands a national monument, Utah-based Randy Simmons and Ryan Yonk look at the economic impact studies used to justify designation.
The boom in gun sales has created a revenue gusher for wildlife restoration.
Cliven Bundy's battle was born out of a broken system that encourages conflict, not negotiation.
Pipelines in the U.S. carry 25 times more oil than tank cars do, yet derailments are by far the biggest threat.
When environmental groups buy ranchers' permits, there's no need for the feds to start rustling up trouble.
Imagine if the government were responsible for looking after your best interests. How well would this work? Just ask Native Americans.
Citizens in the West have little say on how most of their land is managed. Some western states are beginning to fight for custody.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is about to destroy 6 tons of confiscated ivory. But does the destruction of ivory stockpiles really help the cause?

In the Wall Street Journal, Terry Anderson and Shawn Regan explain how Washington rules prevent tribes from developing resources that could help lift them out of poverty.
The death this week of Ronald Coase, one of the world's most-cited economists, comes at a time when there is lively debate about the very issue he raised: why neither markets nor government are panaceas.
In a state known for its golf, Floridians understand the concept of a mulligan. That’s why five years after passing a costly ethanol mandate, Florida lawmakers opted for a do-over.
PERC fellows offer "candidate species conservation banking" as a promising development of voluntary exchange through a market-like approach in their San Jose Mercury News op-ed.
With private investment in green energy down 34 percent between 2011 and 2012, proponents of subsidies for R&D struggle to make their case.
Private ownership is the key to good resource stewardship. As Terry Anderson explains, stream access laws undermine property rights and reduce landowners' incentives to provide habitat for fish and wildlife.
Terry Anderson, D. Bruce Johnsen
Facing the "fiscal cliff," perhaps the president and Congress should start thinking in terms of the "foreclosure crisis." All lenders, whether a local home-loan bank or the Chinese government, expect to be repaid either from the borrower's income or, if that is insufficient, from the sale of assets. Where does that leave the U.S. government?
From the World Resources Institutes initiative for Keeping Options Alive to the United Nations Decade on Biodiversity, calls for conserving biodiversity are persistent. This goal appears reasonable, at least on its face.

Thursday marks the 40th anniversary of the Clean Water Act. No doubt, the billions spent on the act have improved overall water quality.
Terry Anderson of PERC supports the Green Tea Party in 2012 and its preseidential candidate Kermit the Frog. Kermit promises environmental quality with limited government and budget cuts.
