Re: “Activists Try to Block Green Tech in Berkeley

The folks who are fighting this plan for West Berkeley are the same group of folks who are also fighting the plan to add housing and jobs to Berkeley's downtown, and who are STILL fighting to keep high quality transit out of Berkeley (even though more than 80% of voters told them to be quiet). They brand themselves as environmentalists, but nothing could be further from the truth...they are folks who fear progressive change and frankly seem to have nothing better to do than fight it. Berkeley has a reputation for progressive politics and green policy and this group of aging hippies threatens to undermine that reputation and leave Berkeley in the environmental dustbin. The rest of us (who are the vast majority of Berkeley citizens and voters) need to stand up to these folks, who clearly have nothing better to do than fight every attempt to promote smart, high quality, and sustainabile development in our City. Let's put "Progress" back into the word Progressive in our City and not let these folks tarnish our good name!
