All things environmental

Musings about the environment and all it touches, from education to city planning


with one comment

This blog is a compendium of news, seen through an environmental and sustainability filter.

What I try to do is tie some separate news items and integrate them in a digestible format – with many links, for those who like to follow up stories and sources.

Items you’ll find here (when I get to it!):

  • news summaries, with my own editorial spin;
  • book reviews;
  • comments about urban planning, particularly in the greater Vancouver area;
  • comments about education – and not just environmental;
  • links to student activities.

Student activities?  I’m an instructor at Kwantlen Polytechnic University.  I chair the Environmental Protection Technology program and teach in the Sustainability and Policy Studies program.

I’m hoping that this blog may be of use to my students: first as a potential source of references; and second, maintaining this blog will force me to clarify my thoughts, and become a more effective instructor.

I’m also an active member of the Sierra Club of Canada – BC Chapter.

  1. Hi Paul. Enjoyed reading your posts (got down to the cremation article) and have become a follower. All made me think. The last one had me wanting more info. I suppose I could research myself but easier to ask you… what would it look like if we kept all our waste within Metro Vancouver? Do we have the facilities set up now?

    Have you thought of making a FacePage dedicated to your blogs? When i did that for myself, my readership increased.

    Here is my blog I write about anything that happens to me during the week or read about in the news that reflects directly or indirectly our interdependence. You might enjoy the one I wrote on Mount Polley about four weeks ago …Anyhow, good seeing you and Dina last night…. Jo-Ann
