While it goes through generation the younger ones start to deform. John Muir really cared about the land, and he wanted to make the world last long. With whats happening now his mission wont be that much apomplished. If John Muir was still alive he would probably say that we can move on, this is not the first time we go through a nuclear explosion. We whent through the same thing exept bigger.
