[EAN: 9781559639422], Gebraucht, sehr guter Zustand, [PU: Island Press / The Foundation for Deep Ecology, Sausalito, California], ANTI-RANCHING EXTREME GREEN RELIGION PROPAGANDA GAIAN WESTERN LANDS PROPERTY RIGHTS PRODUCTIVE USE, Jacket, Number line complete 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 -- the first printing. There is a white, horizontal scratch across much of the jacket front panel, 2-1/2 inches from the bottom. A huge, folio book of 346 pp. put together by former government employees in California and vegetarians living in South America (honest) -- with little or no input from actual ranchers living on the American range -- who hired an Italian photographer to help them put together this piece of anti-ranching propaganda, which claims that ranchers who pay "below market" grazing fees (where there is not and cannot be any "market") to the federal government to graze their cattle on lands which have never been purchased by the federal government and thus do not belong to the federal government but where the ranchers own state-adjudicated grazing rights are somehow "subsidized" by American taxpayers to "ruin" their own range. (In fact, just as the authors would wish, federal "managers" are now seizing land and cattle and putting these honest Americans out of work by the thousands. See "Wayne Hage," "the Hammond family of Oregon," or "The Bundy Ranch, Nevada.") In one wonderful photo, here, healthy grazed land to the right of a fence line stands ready to bring forth lush green grass with the coming of spring, while to the left of the fence line authors define as "recovered" a parcel with knee-deep grass and brush which went to waste and now stand brown, dried, and ready to go up in a massive range fire at the first lightning strike. (For views based on something other than faith in the ability of Gaia to make abandoned Western desert rangeland resemble an Amazon rainforest, look up Allan Savory, whose findings are confirmed by Texas A&M Range Scientist Richard Teague and Rodale Institute soil scientist Dr. Elaine Ingham . . . or simply read a few issues of C.J. Hadley's "Range" magazine.) Printed in Red China, of course. This 7-lb. book will cost extra to ship "Priority" or offshore.

Welfare Ranching: The Subsidized Destruction of the American West - livre d'occasion

ISBN: 1559639423

ID: 5965058

Welfare Ranching reveals the deplorable practices that are ripping apart the ecological fabric of the arid West, where subsidized livestock grazing occurs on more than 300 million acres of publicly owned land. The book offers a graphic look at the consequences of using taxpayer dollars to turn the West into a giant feedlot for cattle and sheep - the slaughter of predators, a growing number of endangered species, polluted rivers and streams, an increase in soil erosion, and weed invasion, to name just a few. Through dramatic photographs and scientifically supported essays, the book shows that wherever cattle are grazing at the public trough, severe and sometimes irreversible ecological damage results. Fauna of all kinds are extirpated, endangered, or driven to extinction; riparian zones are trammeled and degraded; introductions of exotic grasses and foiled mitigation attempts abound. For years the true impacts of livestock grazing have gone unnoticed as the landscape has been altered slowly over time, making the changes difficult to discern. With more than 150 powerful photographs, Welfare Ranching vividly illustrates the difference between lands appropriated for livestock production and the spectacular deserts, grasslands and forests that have been protected from its shattering effects.

Détails sur le livre
Welfare Ranching: The Subsidized Destruction of the American West

With more than 175 powerful photographs, Welfare Ranching vividly illustrates the difference between lands appropriated for livestock production and the spectacular deserts, grasslands, and forests that have been protected from its shattering effects. Essays by leading scientists, historians, and economic and policy experts document the many costs of ranching on public lands. The book is testimony to an environmental tragedy but it is also an expression of hope that America's heritage of wild and vibrant western landscapes will be restored and renewed.
