It is just as well the Sierra Club were not filing lawsuits 50 years ago, before the Tahoe ecosystem was overwhelmed by development. I'm sure we're all impressed by the newly formed "collaborative effort" put in place by Tahoe Regional Planning Agency and its land-owning clients.
In my travels, when comparing Lake Tahoe with places like Redfish Lake, Idaho, lakes Yellowstone or Fremont of Wyoming, of lakes McDonald and St. Mary of Montana, Tahoe seems like a high-altitude disaster zone.
The only thing which can turn Tahoe around is a "collaborative" re-taking of the Tahoe ecosystem by the American public, the true owners of Lake Tahoe.
