Did I already know there's a problem? Do I care? And would I pay to fix it? The National Park Service wants to know! And they decided they want my inputs regarding fixing the hazy and dirty air at national parks and wilderness areas. I believe I was picked at random. I'm guessing that this is at least partly in response to threatened budget cuts, but that wasn't stated. My survey addressed national parks in Washington and Oregon, but perhaps it was tailored to each region. So, I have a couple of questions: Did anyone else receive one of these? Is theirs a too-simplistic way of framing possible solutions: Would I pay a little for a slight improvement, a lot for a slight improvement, a little for a substantial improvement, or a lot for a big improvement? That's what it all came down to, if I read the questions correctly. I wonder if a better way of suggesting the choices we face as taxpayers might be to ask whether we'd be willing to accept cultural changes, like switching to electric vehicles and solar power? Or maybe constraining air travel? Might be time for me to write some letters to my elected representatives in support of our parks!
