Storyline

REBELS WITH A CAUSE provides the David and Goliath origin for one of America's most visited, and arguably it's most beautiful, urban national parks - Point Reyes National Seashore and Golden Gate National Recreation Area. When California was the nation's fastest-growing state, a handful of politically savvy activists awakened their neighbors, local farmers, and officials to the threat of sprawl and over-development. Passionately, tirelessly, endlessly, they raised support for conservation, successfully battling the most powerful opponents of their day in big industry and government. Their efforts set new precedents for protecting open space and shaped the environmental movement as we know it today. Written by Anonymous

Let's also save our landscapes from "renewable energy" intrusions
15 July 2014 | by A.N.See all my reviews

These are inspirational stories, similar to the fight for Yosemite and other national parks, but an ominous new threat to priceless landscapes is emerging in the form of huge wind turbines and solar plants in areas we never thought would face development. The California desert is especially under siege. It's the opposite of the coast in many ways but both regions need protection more than ever.

Those who would immediately protest fracking on dwindling natural landscapes have become odd allies with builders of spinning white skyscrapers and vast fields of reflective mirrors. It is a disheartening trend. I hope those old activists haven't sold out to Green propaganda.

I would like to see a new push-back against all forms of egregious land development, and a call for more global birth control to stop gluttonous demand at its source.
