The single most significant piece of non misanthropic legislation environmentalists could advance would be one increasing non-human species' habitat. Dr. Seuss' book THE LORAX is misanthropic without being socially constructive. After quickly reviewing that text as a point of reference, this walking tour introduces the development of a social movement theory which came to fruition in 1880 San Francisco. The constructive public policy manifestation of this theory has, as a side effect, the enlargement of non-human habitat fit to make John Muir groupies swoon.
This walk-around-the-real-estate-of-power tromp introduces enviros and housing rights geeks alike to how to legislatively safe-guard the human and non-human environment. The fix isn't easy to persuade the electorate of, but it's not hard-to-digest economic theory either.
