    This looks great. I would use it all. Let’s do it.

    The plans described in in this article neglect to consider two major
    advantages of this area that will soon become crucial.

    Climate collapse is going to cut us off from sources of some things we need.

    Reasons include:
    Some sources will be unable to produce under new conditions
    Paths between ourselves and sources being changed, crowded, hazardous or blocked
    Costs of producing and shipping some things we need will be prohibitive.
    Forced new needs will drain funds from existing needs and activities.

    These factors could force us to produce to meet our own
    needs, or induce us to meet other’s needs.

    All such problems will intensify if we don’t use
    this area’s strategically critical access to rail and navigable water.
    While a diverse economy needs to consider entertainment, retail, hospitality
    and other elements, they can be accommodated elsewhere.

    The highest uses for this area will be to protect us from the effects of these new problems.
    Lastly, such use will produce more jobs and economic payback per acre than the existing proposals.
