|I have created this page to bring my students and web-site
visitors some of the best information about climate change and its
are very proud to have launched an interdisciplinary center at
State College, in which professors, librarians, students, support
and administrators can work together to promote social and
sustainability in research, college operations, and the surrounding

they say. This page brings together a lot of ideas and resources about
food, from the field to the family table.
created this page when I served on a committee that was exploring ways
to reduce energy consumption at BSC. Building on this work, I worked
with colleagues on Green Campus
initiatives, and the international Talloires
movement, eventually leading to the establishment of our Sustainability
Resources Trust of Bridgewater is the leading local environmental group
in Bridgewater. Although land trusts are set up primarily to manage
land that they hold in the public interest, the NRTB does a lot of good
work for the protection and
use of open space, without actually owning land. I set up the first web
for the group when I was a director, but it has since been greatly
improved by another volunteer who is a web-development professional.
Americans have had a love affair with the automobile ever since the end
of World War II. Government policies -- from local zoning to military
spending -- have contributed to car culture. We now have land use
patterns that are so car-oriented that it is actually easier to be
homeless than to be carless in the USA.
Sprawl is an environmental problem because it increases both flooding and drought while eliminating biodiversity and increasing air pollution and the emission of greenhouse gases.
Sprawl is a bad habit, but it is catching on globally. The time to stop it is now!
| I created
the instructor and
student companion web sites for the textbook I use in my introductory
environmental geography class. It includes environmental links,
web-based activities, and news, all organized by topic.
I highly recommend the book, though I must say that the latest version of the web site is not as useful as earlier versions, because of competitive trends in the textbook business.
