Atheism is nothing more than the noises reasonable people make in the presence of unjustified religious beliefs." - Sam Harris

"Community after community is rising up, ranchers, developers, environmentalists, and local commissioners, all saying this is not the best use of our public lands. It is a story that is largely unknown in the rest of the country.

The Bush energy policy is a short-term strategy based on corporate greed instead of a sustainable vision of what best supports local economies and healthy ecosystems." - Terry Tempest Williams
