I struggle on a day-to-day basis with how far I would go for the sake of the environment. There is spectrum of attitudes presented by Chesapeake Bay advocate and author, Howard Ernst, spanning from a “light green” to “dark green” mentality. Light green proponents feel a sense of environmental responsibility and usually act in the form of outreach/awareness/education. Dark green individuals see the environment as a right and act in a more political manner; demonstrations, petitions, canvassing, some groups, like EarthFirst!

Blogging (from 'blog'--verb, intransitive: to write a web log) is a way of communicating somewhat organized thoughts to random passers-by on an Internet site.  In the vernacular of that far-gone century (the 20th), it is a soap box, and a way to sound off.  At the SEPP Blog, these digital graffiti will point readers to important stories about science and technology, mostly in order to inspire or provoke.  If you'd like to write a guest blog for SEPP, please submit no more than four paragraphs through our contact form.
