"What has been spoiled through man's fault can be made good again through man's work" -- I Ching

I'm not quite sure when or how I cultivated such an intense passion for environmental issues -- early enough for my parents to give me the license plate SVEARTH at age 16 (still on my car and still provoking both laughter and praise from friends and strangers).The following are just a few of the myriad web sites out there related to environmental issues.
