WHO’S BEHIND THIS?

WHO’S BEHIND THIS?

My name is Dan Dagget. I’m an unlikely candidate to be an advocate for the creation of a conservative environmentalism. Unlikely, because for much of my life since 1973 I’ve been a liberal environmentalist and a fairly radical one at that. I started out fighting coal surface mines in southeastern Ohio in the county in which the United Mine Workers of America was born. Then I moved to Arizona where I worked to designate wilderness, fought to increase protection for mountain lions and black bears, and helped initiate a campaign to ban uranium mining in the vicinity of the Grand Canyon. My involvement in that latter campaign included helping to organize some of the first direct actions of Earth First!. In 1992 I was designated one of the 100 top grass roots activists in the United States by the Sierra Club.
