I started this blog on April 14, 2005 with a first post pondering what it means to be a progressive environmentalist.
For more than two years various people have made a significant contribution to the blog including Alan Ashbarry, Ann Novek, Arnost, Chthoniid, Chrisgo, Paul Biggs, Boxer, Ian Castles, David, David in Tokyo, Ender, Gavin, Helen Mahar, Hasbeen, Louis Hissink, Lamna nasus, Warwick Hughes, Jim, John, Roger Kalla, Ian Mott, Libby Eyre, Walter Starck, Neil Hewett, Rog, Roger Underwood, Russell, Steve and Steve, David Tribe, Schiller Thurkettle, SJT, Travis, David Ward, Luke Walker, Paul Williams, Woody, Graham Young and many others.
Thank you so much and please kept sending contributions and/or providing commentary.
A few weeks ago I decided to have the banner redesigned and I invited a few regular contributors to take a more prominent role in the running of the blog. Neil Hewett and Paul Biggs agreed.
Neil worked as an outdoor educator in the timber community of Ravenshoe at a time when the forestry industry was being closed down and tourism promised as an alternative industry – a promise that remains unfulfilled. He then spent seven years in remote aboriginal homelands before returning to the Daintree rainforest in far north Queensland, Australia, to become a co-founding director of Cooper Creek Wilderness.

Paul is a Biological Sciences graduate who works in medical research at Birmingham University, UK, since 1979. He became interested in climate change after watching a BBC documentary which claimed that the Gulf Stream could be cut off within 20 years, resulting in the UK having climate like Alaska.
He now spends much of his spare time debunking the claims that there will be a man-made climate catastrophe due to carbon dioxide.

The goat is looking over my shoulder – check out the banner. The goat lives on a farm in the lovely misty green Bowman River valley near Gloucester, New South Wales, in Australia.
The goat posts new threads at this blog on behalf of anyone looking for an alias. Just send an email to email@example.com
While the banner has changed, the rules remain the same. If you have forgotton study the picture and text here.
We strive for tolerance and respect. We don’t always agree with what we publish, but we believe in giving people (and goats) an opportunity to be heard.
The blog is archived in the National Library, Canberra, in Australia.
