Our community has traditionally addressed ecological issues in an unhelpful
way. We live in the middle of a desert and it seems like no one ever does
anything to protect the environment. For example, spotted owls, who cares,
right? Well, not the U of A. Well, maybe that's a little too harsh, but
there has been a big debate about whether or not a huge telescope should be
built on Mt. Graham. Mt. Graham is the "best" place for it, they say. But
it is also the habitat of an endangered species, our friend, the spotted
owl. What should be done? Should poor spotted owl lose his home to further
scientific research? We could go on about other ecological fiascos, but we
won't. We are also sure that at least some of you have heard about the
wonderful governors we've had, so in general, you shouldn't be surprised
that no one in government takes the initiative to protect where we live.
