Bruce Babbitt, former U.S. Secretary of the Interior during the Clinton Administration, talked about his book, Cities in the Wilderness: A New Vision of Land Use in America, published by Island Press. The author wrote that America needs a new land use policy if it is to avoid the irreparable harm of urban sprawl and mass deforestation. Mr. Babbitt made the case that perhaps the best way to preserve America’s open spaces is to leave its control to local government with the considerations of national interest. Following his presentation, the author responded to questions and comments from members of the audience. close
