It's interesting to note that the two most vocal opponents to siting a Cal State campus at Taylor Ranch (Yvon Chouinard and Russ Baggerly) are fortunate to be self-educated, self-made men--an exceptional and commendable achievement worthy of my respect. However, these male "Marie Antoinette" attitudes about the educational and economic needs of their county are extremely unfair to the majority of persons who must have formal education and/or a degree to obtain income. Would they keep their county uneducated, "barefoot and pregnant" for the sake of a comfortable view?

Hewitt uses the emotional rather than the rational argument when he equates the economy and the environment. The environment and the economy may be equally important, but they are not equally resilient. No amount of money can make a raped forest virgin again. The hills that have been beheaded cannot be replaced after the houses built there have decayed and crumbled.

The European Community agreed today to impose tough U.S. pollution controls on all new small cars sold in the 12-nation trading bloc from 1993. An EC spokesman said the controls, which involve fitting three-way catalytic converters and electronic fuel injection systems, will apply to all new models from July 1, 1992, and to all new small cars from Dec. 31, 1992. The controls are expected to add around 7% to the price of the cars, which make up two-thirds of those driven in the EC and are defined as having engines smaller than 1.4 liters.

Six years ago, David Steinman of Los Angeles wrote a book called "Diet for a Poison Planet" and got a lot of criticism from industry and the media for "scaring" consumers about their toxic environment. The environment may still be toxic, he says, but people are willing to acknowledge it and take preventive measures. "We don't have to convince people that toxic chemicals are destructive to our health," he says. "Now we have to convince people there are solutions."

Judy Shannon wasn't sure how to pick lettuce. She worried that snipping thyme would kill the plant. It was, after all, her first harvest. With trepidation, she filled a plastic bag with enough for a salad for herself and her husband, then held it up in triumph -- one success of the Victory Gardens 2008-Plus project.
