the hue and cry

Shellenberger, Ken Miller and Mark Lovelace have won. The environmental community has won. They drove the company to its knees, and went in for the jugular. They used the laws and the courts as panzer units, very effectively. They stand waiting in the wings to seize full advantage and put forth their own "Transition Mission." What does it mean to you? You won't be building any redwood decks and fences. Trex, and plastic will be all you can find.

Those of us who have lived here a long time have always knows that the timber lands would unlimately become subdivisions. It is no surprise. It was especially clear after the timber wars started. No company could survive the ongoing harrassment - justified or not - and some of it was justified. But at some point, a line was crossed. Headwaters may have been that point.
