Earth First! Fist, Volume 16

Patton, Jeanne, et al., eds., Earth First! Journal 16, no. 3 (2 February 1996). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First! Journal Andrea Wilson reports on the Earth First! actions against road building in the UK. In addition, Greg Joder calls for attention to the threatened species of sharks, and Mike Roselle discusses conservation biology and logging. 

I don’t like logging. From the Romans who logged the Mediterranean to the US Forest Service in the Tongass, commercial forestry has been an unprecedented disaster from which this planet will never recover. I’ve never seen a timber sale that I have liked. I’ve never seen one where there wasn’t a better alternative, where higher values weren’t being sacrificed, be it fisheries, watershed, biodiversity or the other host of goods and services that forests provide when they are left unlogged.
