India and Sustainability

Yesterday I went to one of the best one day symposia I have attended, a gathering focused on India and Climate Change. I am glad I attended because it gave me insight as to what role India can and should have in the global debate over environmental policy.

I plan on sharing some others from time to time.

Burritos the size of your arm are everywhere; I think the pastrami hamburger is the regional dish; steakhouses are abundant; and dare I say there are many excellent ice cream shops!

John Forsythe, Voice of the Environment

John Forsythe has left us? That just is not right; truly his passing at 92 is the dusk of an era. Forsythe already had enjoyed quite the career before my day, but as a child of the 1980s, how could you not want to be John Forsythe?
