In response to Jeff Creque’s Opinion piece in the West Marin Citizen yesterday, I received this email from a Point Reyes friend: (emphasis added is mine)

Re: Excellent piece by Dr. Jeff Creque
Absolutely brilliant and moving invocation honoring the sad death of the modern environmental movement which predicted many of the consequences of a world disconnected from nature.
I’ve asked myself for years now why did the Sierra Club NRDC, EDF support the destruction of the most ecologically advanced shellfish producer on the Pacific Coast ? I believe its because they know they’ve lost on all the big issues of climate chaos and no one in dysfunctional DC listens to them. So they score a small “victory” for their diminishing supporters.
In destroying Drake’s Bay. Salazar, in case you don’t know it, went from DC, to the law firm representing BP.
