Ecocentricity Blog: Letting the Expert Speak

Summary: 

As I’m sure you know, Hurricane Michael recently slammed into the Florida panhandle and then made its way across South Georgia.

Ecocentricity Blog: Slowing to a Crawl

Summary: 

Yes, Hurricane Florence began to weaken as it approached the Eastern seaboard. It also began to slow down, but that isn’t a good thing. A slow-moving storm might hit less area, but the area it does hit suffers tremendously.

Ecocentricity Blog: I'll Take Trademarks for $200, Alex

Summary: 

So much of Yvon Chouinard's book's contents match perfectly with Ray Anderson’s own philosophies.
