Earth First! Fist, Volume Nine

Davis, John, et al., eds., Earth First! 9, no. 1 (1 November 1988). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First!, the EF! women are taking a greater role in the journal than ever before. Barbara Dugelby and Christi Stevens give an update on the occupation of caves in Texas in order to protect endangered bugs, and Reed F. Noss calls for attention to forestry in the Pacific Northwest.

Another breed of optimists is counting on AIDS, and other natural catastrophes, to bring our population and technology down to where we ideally would head through our intelligence and foresight. We’ll see.
