Environmental Bailout?


"We are the heinous other in the outside world of the salamander, the other in habitat destruction, the other in the ruins of our own stories about the atmosphere, the weather, the oceans, and our stories have turned to ultraviolet burns, pesticides, acid rain, sour snow, deforestation, soil erosion, radioactive waste, the dubious managemnet of the environment, and the introduction of nonnative species of fish into rivers and pristine mountain lakes."
-Gerald Vizenor from The Tragic Wisdom of Salamanders
