I have been in the environmental field for over 40 years. This blog describes environmental issues from a pragmatic viewpoint. Pragmatic environmentalism is all about balancing the risks and benefits of both sides of issues. Unfortunately public perception is too often driven by scary one-sided stories that have to be rebutted by getting into details. This blog will attempt to show the both sides of environmental issues and will get into the details necessary to support the other side of the story.

There a few voices of the other side of environmental issues on the internet. I plan to publicize their take on issues where I don’t have as much expertise or their descriptions are well done.

Finally note that there is a separate page with Pragmatic Environmental Principles which lists the principles that I believe describe the pragmatic position.
