That sounds like a good idea - it is a self-maintaining current list of interests and recommendations. That is why you are an innovator.
  
Comment by: Pelf C. Nyok (Nov-17-2007)   Web site

I used to bookmark sites that touch on the environment but that list grew kinda long, and I didn't have enough time to read and follow each site, so I trashed the list.

Currently, with StumbleUpon, I find myself bookmarking single posts (environment-related), which I find interesting. So hopefully I'll compile a list of such stories/blog posts in the near future so that we can all share what we've "discovered" and "liked" :)

About contributor Member: PT (David Alexander) PT (David Alexander)
   Web site: http://www.insightandenergy.com

Member: PT (David Alexander) My lifelong pursuit, since age 18, has been to live more fully and find wisdom. This has involved studies with Zen masters, Tai Chi masters, and great psychotherapists while achieving my license as a gestalt therapist and psychoanalyst.

Along the way, I became aware of how the planet is under great stress due to the driven nature of human activity on this planet.

I believe that the advancement of human well-being will reduce societies addictive behaviors, and will thus also help preserve the environment and perhaps slow down the effects of global warming and other major threats to the health of human societies.
