    There’s a war against climate change? Why fight something natural?

    Arguably a more important privately owned piece of property is the Ambersand Lake property that I believe is owned by the Rockefeller family. South of Saranac Lake it’s a huge hole in the High Peaks wilderness. Not as large as the Whitney estate but in a sensitive area.

    The next “fight”? This provocatively titled article indicates that an adversarial tone against the landowners is a foregone conclusion. Mrs. Whitney has been gone barely 60 days and I find it insensitive and presumptive to indicate there will be a fight.

    It sounds like they have zero interested in selling, nor has the state have funds to buy it, and certainly not funds to maintain it. If you have been paying attention this summer it’s obvious that the state cannot mange what they have. Everyone agrees there. What is the story here? The lady dies and people swoop in like there are no heirs?
