Of the entire legislation approved by the US Congress, the 1964 Act is among the very expressive. The rule is eminent by its elegiac definition of an untamed place: “A wilds, in judgments with those specific areas where man as well as his personal works control the landscape, is thus predictable as the area where the ground and its area of life are untrammeled by any particular man, where the man himself is a kind of visitor who doesn’t keep”.
The rough country ideal was the only of the breathing forces of 19th- and 20th century American ecology. At the present time, in the period of change in climate, the ecological movement has changed from a concentration on wild lands conservation to human self-protection. A few voices in the academia, and also within the green kind of groups, have disagreed that rough country is now immaterial, if not out of date.
Jamie Williams, as president of The Wilderness Society, is strong-minded to build the case that wild lands keep as imperative as always – as the physical and spiritual retreat for persons, a safe haven for wildlife, and a storehouse of biodiversity in the warming planet. Williams get mature in the Oklahoma, and like a children spent too much time in the outside, together with trips with family to the Rocky Mountains and some other beautiful locations. He has mainly fond different type of amazing memories of a holiday to Bob Marshall Wilderness of Montana at the time he was just 13. The tour, he explains, completely changed his entire life: “That actually had a deep impact on me, as well as started receiving me to imagine that I desired to live a life such as that and keeping safe places same as that.”
At this time, he is dedicated to making sure that the entire Americans have the chance for that same kind of experience.
