In San Francisco magazine on old-guard environmentalists.
For environmentalists who came of age when “development” meant modernist megaprojects conquering the very earth, that mindset may be too deeply ingrained to ever change. “Think about what communities have had to deal with in the last 20, 30, 40 years,” Penn says. “Wouldn’t you want to say no first, too?” These are the environmentalists who still hold fast to the influential warning sounded by Martin Heidegger, who in the 1950s surveyed a world transformed by hydroelectric dams, coal mines, radar stations, and runways for jet airliners and warned of the danger of man delusionally “exalt[ing] himself to the posture of lord of the earth.”
Quote is from QCT, p. 27.

Can't link to that page. Beyng.com is still broken. Yesterday, I spent a couple hours with tech support at old and new DNS providers, until the Whois database was properly updated. I'm now in email contact with an actual engineer, and the DNS updates appear to be progressing, but they're estimating another four days before everything is working properly again.
