Unsustainable Farming Practices

Currently, America is growing by about 3,000,000 people annually. At this rate, our planet will share its dwindling non-renewable resources with an extra 2.1 billion by 2040. The strains of a rapidly increasing population reflect and magnify the demand placed on natural resources.

Coastal Energy Development in Virginia

There is no question that the U.S and Virginia need an alternative to high priced crude oil. The population is expected to explode to a projected 8.5 million by 2025; a troubling problem, as the economy is already burdened and in crisis. We must insist that our state Senators push for a solution.

Virginia Rivers: The impact of man-made dams

Aquatic communities and fish migration are not only affected by dam induced perturbation; plant communities along with river bed and riparian buffers will also be negatively impacted. Dams along the James prevent river free flow and block migratory fish access to upstream spawning ground.

Global Sustainable Development: A brief history of Earth Summit

Sustainable Development can be broken down into three different categories: environmental sustainability, economic sustainability and sociopolitical sustainability. It does not focus solely on environmental issues, but the range of issues that affect the way we live now and the impact on the future. From an Anthropocentric point of view, we deal with topics like poverty, water quality and availability, clean energy, good governance, low-consumption technology, efficient production and decreased consumption, healthy fisheries, and tourism as a means of ultimately affecting the well-being of the planet.
