Earth First! Journal 21, no. 2

Laughlin, Josh, et al., eds., Earth First! Journal 21, no. 2 (21 December 2000). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First! Journal, Many Hats gives an update on the actions against MAXXAM/Pacific Lumber (PL), David Orr talks about the late David Ross—”a man who made a difference in the world”—and Christopher Beaver discusses the bird “massacres” due to collisions with wireless telecommunication antennas in North America.

Surveys of the birds killed are difficult to conduct since the number of affected birds varies widely during the migration, while scavengers quickly erase the evidence by carrying away the victims.
