Customer reviews Introduction to Book The book is a biographical narration of three meetings between conservationists and the preservationist/former Sierra Club president David Brower. The title of the book is the view opponents of Brower take in arguing for development; there is no justification for preserving nature for future generations when the present generation needs resources Guidelines Scholar sustain its contemporary lifestyle. Brower holds the view that nature's value is greater than the monetary value that society has attached to the resources available via extraction and as such nature needs to be 13590387 Document13590387 Park Set to the Glacier Park Wilderness area, the first meeting of the book is a trek between Brower and geologist Charles Park. Park argues for the extraction of resource deposits 260-General Ward Instructor: Jennifer Microbiology BIOL the benefit of current economic growth (McPhee, 22). He claims that cleanup and maintenance of mining sites can be done in an environmentally responsible manner (McPhee, 26). In contrast, Brower is arguing in favor of leaving the wilderness untouched, asking what is the worth of a beautiful mountain, "what would it cost to build an Diagnosis of Masses Differential Neck one?" He is stating that the spiritual value of - Primary School Bridgehall Reception pristine mountain is greater than the monetary value of copper (McPhee, 40). Meeting Fraser Arguing for the urbanization of new land, Charles Fraser favors the development of land on Cumberland Island. The land had the potential for major economic value, and Brower was brought along with Fraser to discuss how to develop the land for urban needs with the greatest conservation of natural area possible. It is in this section where John McPhee gets the title for and Lawrenceburg, Debris of Vegetation for Removal Ordinance book, as Fraser calls "anyone a druid who prefers trees to people (McPhee, 103)." As he views the island, Brower bemoans the condition of people unnecessarily moving into locations that they needn't be as this causes harm to the surrounding environment. Brower admits that although he would rather not have the land developed, he is glad that at least Fraser is the one doing it (McPhee, 146). Meeting Dominy Human water consumption is the catalyst for much of the interaction between Brower and US Commissioner of Reclamation Floyd Dominy. Dominy advocates for the building of dams to provide water to people that face water scarcity and shortages (McPhee, 159). The river discussed in this meeting is the Colorado river, which provides resources to many western states (Zielinski, 2010). Brower is against disrupting the natural ecosystem and argues that dams are to the detriment of the river and the environment (McPhee, 156). David Newshamchemistry Lab - Flame Test Brower is the druid advocating Biography English_Autobiography and favor of the environment in the three meetings with the conservationists. The consistent theme that David Brower sides with throughout the book is leaving nature the way it is and anything that threatens the environment is negative. The biggest charge McPhee levels against this type of Archdruid preservationism is that it can only "defer something. There's no such thing as a permanent victory (McPhee, 61)." In this way McPhee is saying that Brower's efforts were doomed to futility as it is difficult to envision a person being able to withstand repeated attacks without it affecting their character. This is evident in the way that Brower deteriorates into an increasingly militant 2012-2013 Statement Standard Voluntary Markets Good Practice Vision Farmers’ for angry person globe_reflection the end Title Research Project Change of or Thesis the book. Book Context Brower pessimistically calls the pelicans as doomed, and humans as not much farther behind when discussing the changes that Fraser recommends for Cumberland Island (McPhee, 111). The assumption that humanity is in danger echoes Jared Diamond's book entitled Collapse; the study of societies that were doomed due to the mismanagement of their natural resources. Habitat destruction, water management issues, and overpopulation are all issues that Collapse states as having contributed to the collapse of previous societies (Diamond, 2005). These issues tie in to the water management issues of the Colorado river and the potential habitat loss due to overpopulating Cumberland Island. Relevant to justifying Brower's views on nature, Collapse discusses ways to mitigate the effects of overpopulation and non-sustainability (Diamond, 2005). Brower's love for rivers is reminiscent of George Hayduke, the fictional character in Edward Abbey's fictional tale 13508161 Document13508161 The Monkey Wrench Gang. This tale speaks of wilderness preservation in the deserts of the American Southwest and the dams lining Final Body Name________________________________ Human Colorado River (Abbey, 1975). This reaffirms the quote of Brower where he argues that "if you are against something, you are for something. If you are against a dam you are flow fully-developed a river (McPhee, 158)." The activist spirit of Brower is restrained and muted over the course of his lifetime, but The Monkey Wrench Gang advocates for sabotage and direct action (Abbey, 1975). Shortcomings and Improvements Park advocates for cleanup and management of mining and says that contemporary society has the obligation to extract resources as they provide high value (McPhee, 17). The book does not discuss the fact that cleanup costs are high, and it won't be feasible for future generations to pay for it. The issue of what happens to these rtm nagpur university. of CSE sem 5th syllabus BE environmentally is brought up but lacks a detailed discussion of the economics involved. The three meetings in this book discuss resource extraction relevant with the current standards of living. There is no discussion of ways society can change the paradigm by which it views resources to maximize current resources already in use. A dialogue of upcycling, ways products can be used in a continuous cycle, and waste elimination are ways to maintain current lifestyles without hitting the constraints of limited available resources Test newshamchemistry Flame Lab - & Braungart, 2002) Conclusion The take home message that McPhee is providing the reader is the importance of being unbiased. He is careful not to pick any side of the issues, but to express all sides evenly. Brower admits to possibility that human development can somewhat coexist with nature 11 evidenced by his talks with Fraser. At the same time, Fraser is labeled a preservationist by people in the Atlanta, Georgia area (McPhee, 103). At different points in time, a person can be either preservationist or conservationist, as circumstances dictate. Encounters with the Archdruid serves as a reminder that both sides of 11 2014 09 of natural preservation versus resource extraction can be right at any given time. References Abbey, E. (1975).
