Environmental stewardship.

Environmental stewardship refers to responsible use and protection of the natural environment through conservation and sustainable practices. Aldo Leopold (1887–1949) championed environmental stewardship based on a land ethic "dealing with man's relation to land and to the animals and plants which grow upon it.

Different types of environmental stewards

There are 3 types of environmental stewards: doers, donors, and practitioners. Doers go out and help the cause by taking action. For example, the doers in an oil spill would be the volunteers that go along the beach and help clean up the oil from the beaches. A donor is the person that financially helps the cause. They can do anything from donating their money, to having galas or other fundraisers. They are typically governmental agencies. Lastly there are practitioners. They work on a day-to-day basis to steer governmental agencies, scientists, stakeholder groups, or any other group toward a stewardship outcome. Together these 3 groups make up environmental stewards and with the help keep the ecosystem running healthily. Anybody can be an environmental steward by being aware and knowledgeable of the world around them and making sure they do as little as possible to negatively impact our world. Without these groups it would be hard to get any sort of sustainability in our increasingly technology, pollution, industrial based world.

  • Wild Pacific salmon face an upstream battle for survival
    Salmon are resilient and have survived ice ages and other challenges over millions of years. They've survived having their streams paved over. They've survived toxins dumped into their environments. The question is, can they -- and the ecosystems that depend on them -- survive climate change and fish farms and all the other stressors humans are putting on them?

  • Why Not to Trust Wikipedia—and Search Engines—on Climate Change
    The indefatigable James Delingpole, drawing on a lengthy and thoroughly documented blog post by Kenneth Richard, writing at No Tricks Zone, has a great little article exposing the intentional bias not only of Wikipedia but also of Google and other search engines when it comes to anthropogenic climate change. The gist: Wikipedia sends the global cooling […]
  • Statistician Matt Briggs Disembowels Climate Trend Presentations
    Climate alarmists all over are having fun pushing the picture of historically unprecedented global warming in a recent cartoon timeline. It’s fun stuff, and granted the scientific and statistical illiteracy of most Americans (and others), it seems compelling. But then a real statistician who’s also a climate scientist steps in and spoils all the fun. […]
  • Radio Interview: Students Indoctrinated in Environmentalism
        A couple days ago I did an hour-long live radio interview with Dr. Terry Lovell on “KYCA Talks,” originating at Yavapai College in Prescott, AZ. Terry is a veteran professor of business and economics. His statistics specialty enables him to recognize quickly the gross errors in climate alarmism. During that interview, Terry repeatedly […]

  • Whom to Trust? NASA GISS, NASA, or Cornwall Alliance?
    After citing a couple of Cornwall Alliance’s articles in discussion, an educator friend got this response from one of his former students: The problem with referencing the Cornwall Alliance to discredit statistics from the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies is that one (the Cornwall Alliance) is a political advocacy organization with no scientific relevance while […]
