Noted with sadness. The world needs a more sustainable economy, so that it works with nature, and so that there is no need for environmentalists to battle evil daily.

Maybe this group can take the fight to the U.N. or some world group. Hard to fight big business. What a shame.

Anderson put it a different way, saying it was not a case of David versus Goliath, but a struggle “against the devil himself”...
