Earth First! Fist, Volume 15

Beneville, Craig, et al., eds., Earth First! Journal 15, no. 6 (21 June 1995). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First! Journal Phil Nanas discusses the Forest Service, Bill Clinton’s new forest plan, and logging in Gifford Pinchot National Forest; Rebecca Lightbourne gives an update on the actions against road building in Australia; Daniel Remington calls for attention to save grizzly bears from becoming a threatened species; and Lone Wolf discusses the twenty-fifth anniversary of Earth Day.

For right now, though, before this tarnished planetary milestone recedes into the murky depths of our pop-culture consciousness like last week’s recycled newspaper, all we can do is struggle for perspective. Let us ask ourselves and our favorite lobbyist this simple, sound-bite question: Is our environment better off now than it was 25 years ago?
