New Year’s Resolutions for the Environment!

This past year has been full of crucial steps toward protecting the environment…and challenges to protecting natural spaces and natural resources. From progressive strides such as the Paris Agreement, to obstacles like the pipeline that was almost erected at Standing Rock in North Dakota, 2016 has been a roller coaster of ride for those concerned with the environment, which is to say is has been an average year for those concerned with the environment. In that same vein, 2017 promises to be no different. Please read the article written by renowned teacher, writer and environmentalist, Donella H. Dana Meadows twenty-four years ago for tips on how we environmentalists can stay on our toes, ever-vigilant for the environmental movement.
