Has Sierra Club gone “soft” on coastal protection?


By on Sun, January 10, 2010

The Sierra Club recently eliminated Mark Massara’s position as Coastal Program Director.

The California Coastal Commissioners gave Massara the praise he has earned as a fierce and consistent advocate for coastal protection at the December 11, 2009, meeting in San Francisco.

Ross Mirkarimi, Coastal Commissioner and San Francisco Supervisor said, "The environmental movement has gone completely soft and slightly haywire."

Massara’s closing comments at the California Coastal Commission meeting in San Francisco, "Your right, you haven’t seen the last of me. I’m going to find a way to continue preaching environmental protection and sustainability because its good for the economy."
