What We Learned in the Rainforest: Business Lessons from Nature (Spring 2002)
By Tachi Kiuchi and Bill Shireman

In the rainforest, nature uses feedback to "close the loop." In the face of limits, feedback triggers adaptations that lessen or make an end-run around physical constraints. In business, companies like Coors use feedback to "close the loop," triggering innovations that lead to new products, processes, businesses, and profits.

Livability: The Perspectives of Local Government (Summer 1999)
By Paul Helmke, Mayor of Fort Wayne

When mayors speak of livability, they talk about reducing crime, improving public education, helping kids and adults secure better job and housing opportunities, improving the delivery of public services, recycling brownfields, enhancing the local environment, improving parks and libraries and making transportation systems work for people.

Right To Know To Grow (Spring 1999)

Fulfilling Vice President Gore's 1998 Earth Day commitment to expand the public's right to know about toxic chemicals released into local communities, the EPA has proposed to increase public reporting of such releases by almost 25 percent.

"What you are doing for brownfields -- bringing business and communities together from the very start -- proves one of the basic tenets of all our efforts: through partnership we can protect both people and prosperity, our health and our economy." -- Excerpts from a speech by Carol Browner, EPA Administrator.

Applications For Chemical Microtechnology (Spring 1999)

Chemical processing systems are undergoing a transformation - and a dramatic reduction in size - that may soon allow groundbreaking applications in biohazardous conditions, fuel-cell-powered automobiles, and waste treatment.

Earth Day 2000: Launch of the Earth Day Network (Winter 1999)

Dissatisfaction Guaranteed (Spring 2001)
By Dave Wann

It's like going into a room and forgetting what you came for, except in this case it's the whole culture, forgetting. We forget to ask, "What's an economy for?" En route to a brand new American millennium, we got detoured. Price tags and bar codes began to coat the surfaces of our lives, as every single activity became a transaction. Eating, entertainment, socializing, health, even religion - all became marketable commodities.

Promise Ahead: A Vision of Hope and Action for Humanity’s Future (Summer 2000)
By Duane Elgin

How grown up do you think humanity is? When you look at human behavior around the world and then imagine our species as one individual, how old would that person be? A toddler? A teenager? A young adult? An elder?

Environmental Stewardship Vs. Economic Devel. (Winter 2000)
By Walter McGuire

In the long term, the economy and the environment are inextricably linked. Today's economy depends heavily on the availability and cost of resources. Yet, we have built an economy that values resource consumption rather than stewardship.

Intergenerational Ethics In Water Supply Planning (Fall 1999)
By Eric Rosenblum

In 1746 Benjamin Franklin warned, "When the Well's dry, we know the Worth of Water." As difficult as it is to anticipate thirst in the midst of rain, it is even harder to appreciate today the needs of generations yet unborn, and to provide for them.

Urban Living in the New Millennium (Winter, 1999)
By Jerry T. Estruth

The leaders of our cities are struggling to build transportation systems and to create communities that are livable and provide an environment friendly to people and animals. Slowly, awareness is growing and methods are being developed to enable us to build self-sufficient places to live in the future.

Plan B 3.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization (2009)
By Lester Brown

In this updated edition of the landmark Plan B, Lester Brown outlines a survival strategy for our early twenty-first-century civilization. The scale and complexity of issues facing our fast-forward world have no precedent. With Plan A, business as usual, we have neglected these issues.
