Zinke takes forestry fight to fire-ravaged California

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke looks to push active forest management in California. The push is coming at a time where California is burning with multiple wildfires and the House is trying to pass a farm bill that includes logging without environmental review. Environmentalists are fighting the idea of logging, however, Glen MacDonald a professor of geography at UCLA says that the argued benefits of logging are complicated and don’t always fall along party lines.
