Darn near 20 years ago I wrote a column for the local newspaper called EnviroNews. In it I prophesied the coming of wind power to the Peace Region (I was right), and the revival of rail across North America (I was wrong). Perhaps the paper was desperate for filler, but over 300 EnviroNews articles were published between 1995 and 2001 on everything from backyard composting to TV addiction.

Well, here I go again.

But there are ways to change course to a more sustainable world, and the good news is that it’s starting to happen. The media is so filled with a surplus of doom and gloom that there’s not much room left for the REALLY GREAT STUFF, so that’s what I’m going to focus on in Watt’s Happening.
