Back from Blogcation and a Call for Contributors

Are you ready for Spring Semester? Since I saw my shadow
this morning, I predict it will last 15 weeks or about 4 months.
This is the first week of classes at Hofstra University and I am back from my blogcation. So much has been happening in the environmental and sustainability world over the last few weeks that I feel as if I have missed some very important events. While many of us have been dealing with the monster storm that hit the northeast, other parts of the world have had other problems. Many of you have heard of the water pollution problem in Flint, Michigan, and water supply problems associated with El Niño in Latin America. As usual, there is no shortage of environmental material for this space.

While I was away from the blog I enjoyed my annual winter break spending time reading, writing, and enjoying my friends and family. I have been reading a new biography of William Cullen Bryant that I will review soon in these pages. I also have been enjoying the archives of the Bowery Boys New York History Podcast. If you are a New Yorker or enjoy American history, I think you will enjoy the podcast.

I am also looking for contributors to On the Brink. If you have anything you wish to contribute within the area of environment, sustainability, or higher education, please see the link at the top of the blog titled Write of On the Brink.

As usual, if you have any suggestions for topics or things you would like me to address on this blog, please send along ideas or tips.

A big thanks to all of the readers of On the Brink for continuing to be part of the growing audience of this space.
