Environmental battles and the fight to save the scarlet macaw

by dawnetortorella (WorldCat user published 2013-07-31) Good Permalink

Another sad story about political corruption, environmental battles, and the never-ending need for more energy. No one wins in the end, but that doesn't mean we should stop fighting for the things we strongly believe in.
