    Dear Santa (Bill Gates)

    Calvin Frost || November 20, 2015
    Dear Bill Gates, Merry Christmas and here’s hoping you have many more. I just finished reading your interview with James Bennett in The Atlantic. Pretty lofty comments and at times a bit casual (and cavalier), at least that was my take.&n…

  • Getting over the Green Fence

    Calvin Frost || October 13, 2015
    I received a note from a reader about my last column on carbon cycle, climate change and super bugs. He reminded me that “fire” is in many ways analogous to the devastation caused by the pine bark beetle.  He’s right!  Dro…

  • Climate change, legal prostitution and the pine beetle

    Calvin Frost || July 21, 2015
    Some of you may know that I live in Chicago. As a Midwestern transplant I read as much as possible about our region – its successes, cleaner Great Lakes, for example. And, its failures, stock piling petcoke, the by-product generated during the…

  • Trust me

    Calvin Frost || April 16, 2015
    I love this: “All statements are true in some sense, false in some sense, meaningless in some sense, true and false in some sense, true and meaningless in some sense, false and meaningless in some sense and true and false and meaningless in som…

  • The preposterous pipeline

    Calvin Frost || March 9, 2015
    Lester Brown will close the Earth Policy Institute (EPI) at the end of June. He will retire and EPI will cease to function as a global environmental think tank. I was sad to hear this but understand his rationale. Lester is 80 and good for him to rec…

  • Messages of hope

    Calvin Frost || November 17, 2014
    As we close 2014, two celebrations need to be shared. Both affect the way I think about our world, our land, and the need to conserve and follow good practices that protect and nurture. One is a glimpse into purpose and passion and leaves a message I…

  • Thunder and lignin

    Calvin Frost || July 21, 2014
    I just sent $50 to Friends of the Earth.  I don’t know how they found me but they did.  I suppose I’m on every “green” list in the world and most of the time the request for money falls on deaf ears. The messages are…

  • Safety first

    Calvin Frost || March 13, 2014
    I’ve always tried to develop a relevant analogy, a story line, when writing about complex topics. I try to “cozy” my way in, trying to get your attention. I believe it works. The trick, of course, is to find a thread, a theme which…

  • What the Frack?

    Calvin Frost || April 10, 2013
    I’d like to spend 24 hours with Susan Brantley and Anna Meyendorff.  Susan is a “distinguished” professor of Geosciences and Director of the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute at Pennsylvania University.  She is als…

  • Got wood?

    March 15, 2010
    Before I begin a two part series on pellets for energy, I'd like to take one last parting shot at the black liquor funding paid to the paper industry in 2009. I promise, my last comment on the subject. The United States government paid out about $…
