  • 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…

    Capitalism combats pollution

    Calvin Front || June 3, 2015
    I didn’t get invited to The Wall Street Journal’s ECO:nomics Conference in Santa Barbara, CA, USA in March and I can’t figure out why. I’m the only voice of reason in the ongoing debate on “Emissons vs. Efficiency”…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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…

    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…

  • Learning from students

    July 22, 2008
    Several weeks ago, I was so frustrated with the "I'm gonna do it" group. These are the people and companies that are forever proud of their future changes and achievements. The problem is that they never do it, they never make the changes. I was so f…

  • Skanem turns waste liner into hand towels

    January 23, 2007
    Skanem turns waste liner into hand towels A pioneering waste disposal project to turn discarded release liners into paper hand towels in India has begun. It follows cooperation between Skanem, a large European group of self-adhesive label converters…

  • Why environmentally benign adhesives?

    September 8, 2005
    The first and simplest answer is, of course, that I write under the name "Letters from the Earth."  (Has anyone figured that out?)! Second, most of us are from the industry and are pretty familiar with adhesives.  At least we think we are.&…
