Hello, Everyone. I've long been interested in and have written about environmental and sustainability issues. I work as a writer and journalist and also coach, edit and ghostwrite non-fiction books, novels and screenplays. I also create website content on many subjects. I'm looking forward to this site for news and opinion.

Welcome Laura,

I am sure you will get a few opinions from here ... for what they are worth. :mrgreen:

welcome. (sorry it took so long to welcome you... computer trouble meant missing some posts). I too am interested in being a writer... but for a more diverse and specialized set of audiences.

Welcome, Laura. Nice blog! I am glad you like my signature.......
Think of how the world would be if those words were taken to heart by all people over the past 200 years, 2000 years, or 10,000 years.
No overpopulation. No depletion of any kind. No pollution of any kind. Sustainability and replenishment a way of life and morals.
That ancient hard learned wisdom should never have been overlooked, disrespected, or forgotten by the vast majority. :cry: #-o :mrgreen:
Now, new and old riders are approaching, and the hour is getting late.
From Jan2011;
"The "Horsemen" and the blame. 1.) Aquifer depletion is to be blamed on the people who are over the aquifers, not on outsiders. 2.) Soil depletion can only be blamed on the countries where they are or have depleted their own soils(by not adding organics/composts, salinization by over-irrigation with river waters high in salts, citification by uncontrolled population growth and sprawl, and by not fallowing the land), not on outsiders. 3.) Oil depletion can only be blamed on the countries with oil who have sold it for their own wealth to outsiders. 4.) AGW has a number of sources of blame; the countries burning oil, the countries burning coal, the countries using slash and burn agriculture, the countries cutting down their forests--not outsiders. 5.) overpopulation beyond sustainable is the fault of the countries involved. It may be their culture. It may be their average stupidity. It may be religions. It may be their immigration policies. It may be the greed of some. It may be a combination of factors. 6.) world fisheries collapse can be blamed on drift netters, shark finners, and 3 billion people who get 60% of their protein from fish/seafood. 7.) Surface water pollution/depletion can be blamed on the people in the areas it is occurring and the people upstream who over-use and pollute with everything from agricultural chemicals, industrial waste, excrement, and pharmaceuticals."
Another is the growth only unsustainable economy started by LBJ, instead of the steady state economy. Another the dogma of some government types, lust, jealousy, sloth, and ignorance of nature and ecology on a regional and planetary scale.
