According to the editorial team, this is a special “rant issue.” Rhubarb discusses the idea of industrial collapse, Phil Knight tells the story of when a lone hiker was killed by grizzlies, and Jeff Juel focuses on saving badgers from oil companies’ activities. 

Welcome to this lo-o-ong overdue issue of the WRR. Though it’s true we’ve been busy, this rag is overdue beyond apology. In fact, this thing is so damn late most of you probably forgotten what it is, sobrerity being such a rare thing here in the Wild Rockies. So I’ll remind you. This here Wild Rockies Review is a newsletter published from time to time by the radical environmental community of the Wild Rockies bioregion, which often operates under the name Earth First!…The WWR is intended to be a voice of the radical environmental community, a forum for ideas, and a source of news. Please read it with a sense of humor.
