If it's purely for aesthetics and people (volunteers) want to put time and effort into it, then go for it. I'd rather they put the effort into dealing with the parking, camping, LNT enforcement...

Promising, but not exactly what I was asking. Net zero they said they only on average can be carbon neutral, so they need to use grid power from fossil fuels during the winter.

I think the only "green" solar is using algae. Or perhaps truly harnessing chloroplasts. Photosynthesis solves a lot of our current problems. Getting it to produce the amount of energy we want is...

I don't know that Thorium Nuclear is viable. Some people seem to think so, but seem like crackpots.

I think waste (unenriched) Uranium Nuclear is our only near term option. Natural Gas might...

I didn't think of Hydro! That seems like it might be a real nightmare to keep running all year round.

For sure I had already exhausted all the thoughts of an "earthship" type house with...

It’s just a guess based on my knowledge that well drillers do use that technology, although unlikely any gas or oil fracking in the Adirondacks.

I would have guessed earthquakes because they are...

Can you build a "green" house in the Adirondacks?

By this I mean a year round residence which is not reliant on the grid, fossil fuel generators or burners?

I've looked at it many times and I don't think so, not even using the most sophisticated...

My real guess is hydrofracking somewhere in the area. Possibly for a well?

I haven't read the article yet, but a couple comments about my general understanding:

- Does taking a natural, yet poorly designed trail and adding a number of man-made rock work degrade the...

It's been shown that our forests absorb a lot of pollution that would otherwise enter the water, not to mention the amount of carbon they store and lock - far more than Boreal forest per acre.

I see where you're going in terms of tax revenue, but easements are still privately held. By my count we're just under 50%.

My hope for the future was acquiring wilderness inholdings, but I'm not...

Oh I'm agreeing with you. I think the issue is that not necessarily that the road needs to go, but that it shouldn't take you all the way there. Perhaps if it was 3 miles hike and there were...

Ideal Land Management

Completely hypothetical, but if we could better shape land management, would it be more ideal have a "matryoshka dolls" model where wilderness areas were surrounded by a "buffer" of wild forest, and...
