Wise use Movement (1988)

The wise use movement in the United States is a loose-knit coalition of groups promoting the expansion of private property rights and reduction of government regulation of publicly held property, and it’s to protect the basic productivity of the land and its ability to serve future generations
The term "wise use" was coined in 1910 by U.S. Forest Service leader and political Progressive, Gifford Pinchot, to describe his concept of sustainable harvest of natural resources.
The movement was most active in the Western United States in the late 1980s and 1990s.
The modern use of the term "wise use" to refer to opposition to the environmental movement dates to the publication of Ron Arnold's book Wise Use Agenda in 1989
