Pg. 143: "'Compared to the Doomsday Chiliasts and the Earth-Firsters, Palmer Joss is the soul of moderation,' "; Pg. 248: "'...I'm catching a lot of heat from the Hill, from the Earth-Firsters, from my own National Committee...' "; Pg. 271: "Organizations publicly claiming respnsibility included the Earth-Firsters, the Red Army Faction, the Islamic Jihad... "

Pg. 218: "Things began to fall apart all across the United States the moment Godzilla stepped out of San Francisco Bay. It was one of the blackest days in the nation's history. "; Pg. 219: "Meanwhile, the environmental group Greenpeace hailed Godzilla's return, calling the monster an 'eco-avenger' who would return the world to a 'more natural state.' "

Not just with an extensive network of Christian compounds with impressive stockpiles of ethanol, petroleum, and advanced information technologies; but with radical Xian groups like Blood on the Door, which targeted women who had had abortions, and the blue Antelope Fellowship, youthful preservationists whose firebombing had already killed twenty-three legislators who opposed various endangered species acts. "
environmentalism USA 1999 Hand, Elizabeth. Glimmering. New York: HarperCollins (1997); pg. 36. "It proved more difficult to avoid Blue Antelope. Radical Xian environmentalism was Chappell's pet cause, and Blue Antelope was its army. During and after performances, he arranged meetings with local members and insisted that Trip greet them. The organization's demographics were similar to those of the band's ideal audience: young, white, rebellious Christians who had co-opted the term 'Xian' from their neo-pagan counterparts. Their manager even encouraged Trip to write songs inspired by Blue Antelope.

'They've got money, man!' Lucius rubbed his fingers together... 'Many talents--not to mention God on our side.'

'Uh, I'll think about it,' Trip demurred, wondering how good it would be for album and ticket sales if word got out they were writing songs for the terrorist group that had firebombed an Arizona hospital because its new temporary wing encroached upon a nesting site of the blue-throated hummingbird. "

environmentalism USA 1999 Hand, Elizabeth. Glimmering. New York: HarperCollins (1997); pg. 39. "Blocks of tickets were bought by Blue Antelope and other progressive fellowships. Trip could recognize the former by their masks. No demure white surgeon's masks or the simple black crosses favored by mainstream Christians, but colorful representations of African elephants and pandas and the blue antelope, which was the first African species to be extinguished by humans, hunted to death for dog meat. And, of course there were droves of new fans who were obviously either newly anointed Xians or just old-fashioned heretics out for a good time listening to bad news. " [Other environmentalist refs., especially to the Blue Antelope environmentalist group, not in DB. Also pg. 197.]
environmentalism USA 1999 Hand, Elizabeth. Glimmering. New York: HarperCollins (1997); pg. 343. "'No He's not a terrorist. I mean, he's not a member of Blue Antelope--he hates Fundamentalists, but I'm sure he knows about the attack. His work, recording all the extinctions, donating all that money to the Noah Genome Project--he may not belong to Blue Antelope, but he believes in them...' "
