Then Again (Environmentalists)

The other side of that Earth Island encomium -- which I do not stint at all in giving to most of the individuals I was talking about -- is that Earth Island is, like practically any institution of its size and age, contracting a case of Edifice Complex. The PTB there are winding up to pile some big new headquarters building here in Berkeley with, oh, a restaurant and green building methods and some sort of enviro art gallery or museum or exhibit space or something along with the offices, conference room, whatever.

And I keep thinking: Just what my poor city needs, another honkin' big building. Whoopee. Real environ mental, that.
