Is Wired Telling the Whole Story?

This month's WIRED has a little story on the "regreening" of the Galapagos, describing its fuel storage and new airport, among other things. After touring Ecuador with the Rainforest Alliance, I felt that having come all this way, I should see the Galapagos, possibly the most unTreeHugger trip I have taken. It was a short visit, but long enough to be troubled, and long enough to conclude that what Wired calls "regreening" is little more than a finger in the dike.
