Hello and welcome to my newly minted blog. I hope to write many interesting and relevant things about the human-environment relationship here in the future.
Environments are in distress all over the world. Sometimes we reverse our environmental damages, as with the ozone layer and many rivers in North America, but overall we are moving toward increasing environmental ruin with global warming, toxic or radioactive landscape contamination, extremely high extinction rates, massive oil spills, and the loss of drinkable water. Most people are somewhat or very concerned about the daily reports they hear about environmental degradation, yet the damage goes on.
Why this discrepancy between our desires and reality? Is our environmental future out of our control?
I hope to address such questions in future posts. Please stay tuned.
