After the Hiatus, the Tempest?

I have been long absent from these pages and owe an apology to those who have checked them in vain for something new.

It has been a ferociously busy six months, but Technology and Sustainability: Choosing the Future was submitted to Rocky Mountain Books on March 3rd, with expected publication (in the Manifesto series, like Gift Ecology) in the fall of 2014.

In December 2013, I was honoured to be elected one of the two civil society representatives for the region of North America to the United Nations Environment Programme for the next year. This is a significant time, as the Sustainable Development Goals are being negotiated and new mechanisms for civil society engagement in the work of UNEP are being crafted.

Between Winnipeg and Nairobi over the next few months, I will share some of my thoughts on the issues that confront us all as we make choices toward a sustainable future.
