Earth Island in the News

EARTH ISLAND FOUNDER DAVID ROSS BROWER died on November 5, 2000, at the age of 88. This issue of Earth Island Journal is dedicated to Dave and his work.

DAVE BROWER MEMORIAL On December 2, more than 1,600 people jammed the Berkeley Community Auditorium to pay tribute to Earth Island Founder David Ross Brower. Members of Dave's extended global family flew in from around the world to celebrate the life of "The 20th Century's John Muir." (For more information on the event and Dave's amazing legacy, see the inside front cover.)

Dave Brower's book, Let the Rivers Run, Let the Mountains Sing (printed on tree-free kenaf paper) has been translated and published in Japan -- thanks to kenaf-paper pioneer Tom Rymsza of Vision Paper who left Dave's book with an influential friend during a visit to Japan -- and later helped translate such mysterious words as "deadhead."

THE JOHN MUIR PROJECT, Tule River Conservancy and Forest Conservation Council filed a first-of-its-kind lawsuit against the US Forest Service last October, seeking to halt logging operations on federal public lands across the Sierra Nevada. The goal is to protect the late-successional and old-growth forests that are home to the imperiled California spotted owl and Pacific fisher. [www.johnmuirproject.org]

THE SACRED LAND FILM PROJECT's 72-minute documentary film, In the Light of Reverence, was screened at the opening of the American Indian Film Festival. The film recounts the struggles of three native communities to save sacred lands at Mount Shasta, Devils Tower, and the Four Comers area. Sacred Land filmmakers Toby McLeod and Malinda Maynor (Lumbee) and film participants Mark and Caleen Sisk-Franco (Wintu), Vernon Masayesva (Hopi), and Chris Peters (Pohlik-lah/Karuk) were on hand when the film won the festival's Best Picture award. In the Light of Reverence is under consideration for broadcast on the PBS program "Point of View" later this year.

THE YGGDRASIL. INSTITUTE [www.earthisland.org/yggdrasil], a Kentucky-based project that conducts research and disseminates information on nuclear power, Eastern oldgrowth forests, and green tourism, has expanded its website coverage of the French nuclear industry, in both English and French. "Yggdrasil" (pronounced ig' druhsil) is the name of the "world tree" in Norse mythology, a symbol of the interdependence of all life. The website features an updated, bilingual version of Yggdrasil Founding Director Mary Byrd Davis' book, La France Nucleaire: Matieres et Sites, which discusses sources and stocks of French uranium and plutonium, and profiles the French civilian and military nuclear sites.

YGGDRASIL'S URANIUM ENRICHMENT PROJECT (UEP) has received a grant from the Citizens' Monitoring and Technical Assessment Fund. The CMTAF was set up as part of the settlement of a lawsuit brought against the Department of Energy (DOE) by 39 nonprofit peace and environmental groups concerned about DOE's nuclear fuels enrichment plant in Portsmouth, West Virginia. UEP and Portsmouth/Piketon Residents for Environmental Safety and Security will employ Radioactive Waste Management Associates to assess the environmental contamination caused by the plant and evaluate DOE's remediation efforts. This is believed to be the first time that independent experts have studied the plant.
