I am going off to Washington, DC for a couple of days to a Council meeting of the Wilderness Society.  I have served on that Council since 1991 and enjoy the three or four meetings a year that we attend.  We are starting to do a lot of work on sorting out the conflicts between renewable energy developments and wilderness land protection.  That is an issue that needs to be thought out very carefully by everyone involved.

KIa ora Jim,
Good luck, it will be interesting to see what will develop with this issue. Here in NZ our right wing government has gotten very serious about opening up our wonderful National Parks and wilderness areas to mining. The backlash by the public is causing them to do a bit of back peddling, but they are still casting eyes upon it as mere money.
