It's easy to find articles about how we're going backwards in Everglades protection and our environment in Tallahassee right now. There's Fred Grimm in the Miami Herald, Craig Pittman in the St Petersburg Times, an article in the News-Press, and plenty more more articles about us going backwards in environmental thought if you care to take a look
Don't our Governor and legislators know that the Everglades are needed to ensure fresh water and healthy waterways into the future and that our economy is dependent on people visiting our unique environment right now? Don't they know that by refusing to balance out our needs with the needs of the earth our country is falling behind both in thinking and technology?
Why can't our species, smart as we are, find ways to protect the environment that nurtures all of us, and to find ways to share our space with other species who may contribute in ways we're only begining to understand.
