Dear Blog Reader,
First, I want to thank you for visiting my blog. With a world of choices out there, you’ve chosen to devote a few minutes to my thoughts, and I’m deeply grateful.
Next, I want to apologize for posting so sporadically. My excuses are (1) that my health slows me down, and (2) that I’ve started working on a second book. Throughout 2016, most of my time and energy will go toward writing the book. My blogposts will generally be brief: thoughts to consider, links to informative articles, and so forth.
For now, I have a thought that I hope you’ll take a moment to consider:
Americans are richer than ever before in terms of market goods and services, but poorer than ever before in ecological goods and services.
In case you’re wondering, ecological goods and services are the biological, chemical, and physical functions that nature provides for free. They include the resources we use to produce market goods (including metals, fuel, food, wood, etc.) and critical processes (such as pollination, waste treatment, soil production, water purification, etc.)
Well, that’s it for now. As always, thanks for stopping by! Happy New Year!
