- Lansky, A.M.
The differences between the 1980 EIS and the 1981-85 DPEIS are not very great, the major one being that the latter is for 5 years while the former was just for one. They both claim to be "IPM" programs. Yet the US Forest Service decided that subsidizing the use of chemical insecticides was inappropriate in 1980, but will be appropriate in 1981-85. The differences should be looked at and the basic arguments should be examined to see why the USFS changed its mind.
