U2's David Evans, known as "the Edge," wants to build a series of eco-friendly homes on a hilltop on the Malibu coastline. The city of Malibu has said no, citing environmental concerns--apparently anything built in that area is going to be destructive--as well as residents' objections that the project would "mar views of the ridge line for more than a mile along the coast."
Commenter jsajsa points out, though, that almost no one is without sin when it comes to these issues:
The Malibu residents opposed to the Edge's real estate aspirations argue that the construction would "mar views of the ridge line for more than a mile along the coast". I wonder when those residents built their houses did others say the same thing years ago.
