  • 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…

  • Talk about choice and change

    Calvin Frost || January 26, 2015
    Wow.  Bill, do you remember John? No, not that John.  John Hall, the guy who started Goose Island Brewery.  You’re not going to believe this, but I ran into John during the holidays. I had stopped to have a beer and a brat at his…

  • Messages of hope

    Calvin Frost || November 17, 2014

  • Keep the change

    Calvin Frost || October 10, 2014
    Thursday at Labelexpo was a bit slower than Tuesday and Wednesday. It gave me a chance to walk the show and look for change, change that would affect our industry and make an impact. While Tuesday and Wednesday were exhilarating, it was a grueling 48…

  • Going public

    Calvin Frost || April 15, 2014
    For the last month or so I’ve been caught between religion and safety culture.  I’m not sure why, but it’s happened (am I getting older?). I can’t seem to make them connect: one is so subjective and the other totally blac…

  • Coke gets it

    Coke gets it

    Calvin Frost, Contributing Editor || September 13, 2013
    I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the items that I come across during my readings. Beach reading? Not quite, but I call this “summer” column a potpourri of information. I’ll return to my normal messages and ruminat…

  • Industrial Pellets

    March 30, 2010
    In my March/April column I wrote about wood pellets. I explained that the caloric value of the pellet is much greater because you have densified the cellulose. You have created an energy source that approximates coal. This has been one of the reasons…
