What Is An Urban Environmentalist?
"My friend lives near the planned light rail station at Columbia City. He and some of his neighbors are upset that light rail is coming and that it is tied to the proposals to increase housing density near the station... I was shocked because this friend considers himself a radical environmentalist... The greatest challenge facing urban environmentalists in Seattle and King County is how to build a community that does not sprawl into the hills, that reduces the use of the private automobile while increasing the use of mass transit, that reduces air pollution and gasoline consumption, that provides a high quality of life in livable communities with ready access to parks and open space."
