Via Jon Stahl I saw the launch of Priorities for a Healthy Washington, a coalition of Washington state enviro organizations. I looked over the site quickly and went on about my day — it didn’t make much of an impression.

Now Alex Steffen asks: Hold on, why can’t enviros make a damn impression? The PHW site is business as usual, he says, “a great example of environmentalists once again describing the steak rather than selling the sizzle.”
