Vacation Photos

I've been meaning to do this for a VERY long's a link to just a few of my photos from my recent trip to Europe. Enjoy!

Environmentalism at the Emmy's?

I'm not a huge fan of the Emmy's. I love TV as much as the next person (probably more), but I am usually very bored by the Emmy's. This year was no exception; the only part that was remotely amusing was this little sketch about environmental activism, featuring Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert (2 very, very funny guys). 

My opinion? I think that while it's a small gesture, a sketch like this invites discussion of environmental issues, something that shouldn't be underestimated. Every little bit helps, especially in the context of something as self-absorbed as the Emmy's. 

What do you think? Tacky? Too light? Commendable? Sound off in the comments.

Welcome to the Brand-New Earthteam Blog

Hi, everyone! It's Justin here (a.k.a. Dr. Green), writing the first of what I hope is many posts for the new Dr. Green blog. We've got a lot of ideas for this space, but we also want to hear about what all of you would like to see and read about.

At this point, I plan to contribute a few short posts a week--little pieces about environment-related news, video, etc--hopefully with comments enabled, so that we can get some discussions going. To supplement that, I'll be doing a longer editorial every other week or so. And I'll answer those Ask Dr. Green questions as they come in.

But I'd really like to hear from Earthteam's readers. What would make this blog more valuable and interesting to you? What would you like to read about? What would you like to see when you come to this blog?

Please post any suggestions or questions in the comments section below.

Thanks, everyone. I'm really looking forward to serving you as Dr. Green this year.
