Sea Change Radio Interview with Jason Mark, the editor of Earth Island Journal on the Wilderness Act

We hear an episode of Sea Change Radio featuring a wild discussion with Jason Mark, the editor of Earth Island Journal, as we honor the 50th anniversary of the passing of the Wilderness Act of 1964. Mark shares his misgivings about what he views to be a technological threat to some of nature's most mysterious spots and how much of our wild is already pretty tame. Then, he and host Alex Wise delve into conservation policy and talk about the surprising number of bipartisan conservation bills that unsurprisingly have not yet been passed by Congress.

He wrote the recent piece "Bush Pledges on Iraq Bases Pact
Were a Ruse,"
which states: "When Democratic Sen. James
Webb asked the State Department's David Satterfield, 'What is a permanent
base?' Satterfield tried to avoid answering the question. But Assistant Defense
Secretary Mary Beth Long was more responsive. She said, 'I have looked into
this. As far as the department is concerned, we don't have a worldwide or even
a department-wide definition of permanent bases.'    "Webb
then observed, 'It doesn't really mean anything,' to which Long replied, 'Yes,
senator, you're right. It doesn't.' She added that 'most lawyers... would say
that the word "permanent" probably refers more to the state of mind
contemplated by the use of the term.'"
