I think you will find, as I have, that the rank and file locals are members of enviro groups because they care about the VERY same things, in the VERY same way, as we do. There is much common ground even given some differences, and while it is naive to completely let one's guard down, if you engage the conversation there is learning both ways - and we do have persuasive arguments, as do they.

Sometimes the full-time, lawyered-up, national level salaried folks are uncompromising idealists who see things in unwavering black and white. The far right wing does not have a corner on fundamentalism... it's an equal opportunity pitfall.

Perhaps I see it with what seems to be stark clarity because I am a member of a group so often accused of it! Funny how that works...
