Add to that the desperate ideas of environmental law professor Mary C. Wood in "Climate Revolutionary," who hopes that our legal system, itself a reflection of our values that consistently elevate private interests over those of the public, could somehow change who we are overnight. What a fabulous example of the death of environmentalism. I've got news for the professionals: Global warming is a moral issue, not a legal one.
How about the effectiveness of Ron Gillett, who wants all the wolves removed from Idaho? Human economic and recreational values are once again trumping nature, this time because the urban political base of wolf reintroduction has no credibility in the real wild.
And finally, Shane Bondi's essay, "Coffeepots and climate," shows educated, urban sensibility (like mine), also desperate, hoping to "sever some of the ties (we) have to global warming" with wind power. Do the math on how many square miles of wind farms it would take to power all of us. I'll remember that issue better as "Doom! Doom!"
