REDFORD’S COMMENTS HYPOCRITICAL

SHARE REDFORD’S COMMENTS HYPOCRITICAL

This morning Robert Redford appeared on CBS supporting government-protected wilderness areas. One of the most beautiful spots in the world is east of Mount Timpanogos where Redford was involved in significant development with homes, restaurants, ski resorts, ski runs, parking lots, roads, etc. Now he wants to preserve all the rest for a few people who want large areas of land preserved for just their pleasure.

Ranchers have relied on some of this land to graze their livestock for several generations, and their lives would be turned upside down if these grazing rights were taken away. It sure seems grossly hypocritical and self-serving where some pretend to be interested in keeping this world in its natural state unless, of course, it involves their own enterprise.
