Name Change

The poet and naturalist Henry David Thoreau once wondered, "What's the use of a house if you haven't got a tolerable planet to put it on?" It's a very good question, one whose implications run deeper than residential planning. Just as a house would be useless without a "tolerable planet," so would the human race. What are we without the world around us, without the ecosystems that support us and provide us a point of contact with one of the most unique phenomena in the universe -- the diversity and interconnectedness of life on Earth?

Hopefully, with this blog, I'll be able to examine some of the things we're doing to make our planet intolerable, as well as point out things we can do and are doing to help the environment around us.
