Earth First! Fist, Volume 13

Roselle, Mike, ed., Earth First! Journal 13, no. 4 (21 March 1993). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First! Journal Bill Hipwell gives an update on the monkeywrenching actions against helicopters to save wolves in Yukon Territory, northern Canada; Danielle Droitsch argues that Champion International’s Canton (North Carolina paper mill) poisons the Pigeon River; George Wuerthner discusses biodiversity and snails; and Elaine Lissner discusses non-hormonal male contraception.

Can you think of a male contraceptive other than the condom and vasectomy? Probably not, and for good reason: though more than eight new methods exist, none have been publicized. The methods range from the simpler less surgical vasectomy to ancient “folk” methods which have performed well under scientific scrutiny.
