I hate to say it but I almost see where they(ELF) are coming from. I'm tired of seeing fields and woods tore down so another strip mall can go up. Ever heard of rebuilding what we already have?
I in no way condone their actions.
We hear all the time how we (4x4 enthusiast) destroy the land. But it is OK to completely strip away tress and fields for another CVS or Subway. Not to mention logging and what it does to the land.
