Two Plans

My solution to the government revenue shortfall is to tap into the caring nature of people. Uncle Sam should send letters to every environmental group informing them that we're going to start cutting down trees to sell the timber unless they pony up pronto. I'd suggest $500 per tree per year or it comes down. Considering the money they spend on lobbyists and advertising to convince people that nature is precious, well, it's time they put their money where their mouth is.

I realize that it's not very workable, and that a better name than "Ransoming Mother Nature" would be needed.

On the other hand, Stephen Macklin has come up with an idea that makes too much sense to ever be implemented, called "How to Save Detroit, the Economy and the Planet". Follow that link, it's short and well worth reading.
