Edward Abbey’s clarion call

speech at the 1976 Vail Symposium:

“We must not plan for growth but for war- war against the strip miners, against the dam builders, against the power plant builders, against the pipeline layers. (A war against) a whole array of arrogant and greedy swine who, if we let them, will obliterate every mountain, dam every river, clear-cut every forest and obliterate every farm and ranch and small town in the American West.”
