An Environmental Case History In "The Oyster War"

/

The good guys and the bad guys in environmental issues are often determined by which side you favor. 

But the murkiness of good/bad and right/wrong is brought into sharp focus in Summer Brennan's book The Oyster War: The True Story Of A Small Farm, Big Politics, And The Future Of Wilderness In America

It concerns a decades-old oyster farm in California, a federal effort to protect sensitive lands, and the ability of anybody involved in an extractive industry to protect or enhance the environment. 

The author visits to talk about wading into this hotly contested subject area.
