NYTs: Martin Litton, Fighter for Environment, Dies at 97


“People always tell me not to be extreme,” he said in a 2010 documentary about his life, “The Good Fight.”

“ ‘Be reasonable!’ they say. But I never felt it did any good to be reasonable about anything in conservation, because what you give away will never come back — ever. When it comes to saving wilderness, we can’t be extreme enough. To compromise is to lose.”
