What is power, exactly? Parting the Red Sea? Ignoring the creamy, glistening donut in the break room for the entire day? Leading a country into war? Having a great hair day?

For conservationists it might be creating a special place in North Carolina where the Appalachian Elktoe Mussel can live out its natural life in peace. Or figuring out why the well water of a local cattle ranch is being affected by nearby fracking.

Power is as power does. Use your power wisely, tree hugger.
