Our planet supports life beyond measure. How we use the resources and the conservation methods we utilize will have an impact overall. It is no longer tolerable to think “out-of-sight, out-of-mind” when it comes to how everything will impact everything else. Most recently, the US has pushed for “green power” by encouraging the development of biofuels, mainly corn ethanol. A recent article from the Associated Press takes an in-depth look at current trends in the production of corn and the environmental impact this causes, and is followed by the expected blow-back from the ethanol industry.

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your site.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit
    more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?

    Great work!

      Thanks; we’re glad you find it that way.

      As for the theme; no, it’s just a stock WP theme with a black background. We decided early on that legibility and functionality were what we wanted, and we think we’re hitting those targets.
