From June 20th to July 1st, locally well-known journalist and activist Will Parrish lived 50 feet above ground in a wick drain “stitcher” in the northern Little Lake Valley (ie, Willits Valley) wetlands, where the California Department of Transportation (CalTrans) is building an unnecessary and environmentally destructive freeway bypass.
From 1950 to 1970, the U.S. automobile population grew four times faster than the human population. In 1970, the U.S. Department of Transportation reported more than 89.9 billion vehicle miles traveled. By 2011, that number nearly tripled to more than 246.3 trillion. The automobile and the lifestyle it inspires have risen to prominence through the power of relentless suggestion. There’s nothing delicate about car commercials and car toys and the hundreds of songs and movies that venerate the irrefutable gratification of owning an internal combustion engine of your very own.
