A short distance from people surfing at Huntington State Beach is the AES Corp.'s power plant, with its two, 214-foot-tall stacks towering above the coastal palms.

Just down the hall from a ballroom packed with 400 people, a single Sierra Club lobbyist huddled at a pay phone, his voice tense. "We've got six votes. Six," he told the caller. The lobbyist, Mark Massara, needed seven votes from the California Coastal Commission to win what once again has escalated into one of the state's most rancorous environmental battles.
