Nature's Fight

February 25, 1986

When I see the hills of sliding mud undermining the foundations of giant condos on Pacific Coast Highway and the 12-foot waves relentlessly pounding the beach, churning up the abandoned beer cans, hamburger wrappers and plastic cups, I wonder if nature isn't fighting the pollution with which we are destroying the world around us.

I can't help but think that nature is going to win out and the Earth will survive long after we're gone. New forests will emerge where edifices like the new 300-room hotel in Malibu--the one that will not have sewage facilities or access way other than the already burdened Pacific Coast Highway--have crumbled and surrendered to the sea.
