How can we restore 64,000 acres of wetlands for free (an area three times the size of Manhattan), revive a Great Lake, improve water quality, protect coastal communities, and support local economies? Read my op-ed in today's Albany Times-Union urging the feds to adopt Plan 2014 without further delay:

Spend some time outside to celebrate Earth Day with +The Nature Conservancy and EPA Region 2 by posting a   #natureselfie  this year.  I took mine from a hot air balloon in Cappadocia, Turkey.  It's easy to do: http://nature.ly/1pd54jK.

Looking forward to participating in a Clean Energy Connections panel this Wednesday, Nov. 20, from 7 - 9 pm, about addressing the cost of natural resource use and other 'environmental debt' ... if you're not in NYC the event will be live-streamed, details below.

Check out my op-ed in today's Journal News (lohud.com) ....
As the Superstorm Sandy recovery funds become available and communities are provided with resources to start rebuilding critical infrastructure, we need to make sure that these funds are spent in a way that will avoid a repeat of Sandy's devastation.

New version of +The Nature Conservancy coastal resilience mapping tool has been released ... per +Grist  it is 'super cool' (and an important way for communities to assess vulnerability and plan).
