WASTEFULNESS! I.n*?U of Economy One of <!ie Crytna Evll.n of the Dny. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 25 January 1908
WASTEFULNESS! I.n*?U of Economy One of &lt;!ie Crytna Evll.n of the Dny. Once more the story of American wastefulness is being dinned into the ears of prodigals. This time it is I’rof. Holmes, of the geological survey, who calls our attention to the millions of tons of ore and coal thrown away by slovely methods of excavation and utilization, and to the billions ol feet of standing timber burned by forest fires, against which almost no preventive or protective measures are taken.

But,- taken at its worst, it is trilling in comparison with the total results of the petty day-to-day wastefulness of 70.000,000 Americans.

Devastated woodlands and squandered mineral wealth are the sen...
