About It’s the Environment, Stupid

This site focuses on the many environmental issues that receive little attention today as well as those on the front page. While it will deal with the great issue of climate change and smaller issues like home insulation, it will mostly provide information that’s not catching the public eye. To accomplish that, a lot of space – the Environmental News section – will be devoted to bring you news from every possible source: newspapers, magazines, blogs, professional journals and newsletters — material that will give you a better background to understand the subjects we’re writing about.

In order to do that, we hope readers will contribute more than comments. Tell us about subjects we should cover, news items we’ve missed; name good guys and bad guys (of both sexes) we should consider; tell us about parks we should cover. The “What were they thinking!?” section is especially open to anyone who has got some verifyably bad environmental behavior that’s caught their breath – if they can keep their indignation down to a page. To do these things, contact us at But first and above all, comment.

At this point ‘we’ are Ingrid Wiegand and a few people that have agreed to provide periodic posts, who will be identified as their work starts to appear. Ingrid is a BPI-Certified Building Analyst, which qualifies her to talk about what goes on environmentally on the home front. She is also a LEED Accredited Professional, which qualifies her to write about the many issues the US Green Building Council has brought to bear on the design of larger buildings. She has previously written on aerospace and television technology, and on contemporary art and architecture.
