Speaking of expectations, an appropriate choice of words here; as we venture into this journey of understanding more about our natural environment, how to engage you in it, impacts, and realities, we want you to share your expectation. Where your beliefs reside, whether we are meeting your expectations and how we can improve the information we plan to deliver to you.
As humans, like all other living organisms we are having a natural impact on our environment, what reflects an imbalance is the rate at which we are impacting our environment. Unlike other living organisms we have evolved in a way that significantly increases the rate of our intake and output, resulting in a disproportionate affect on the planets resources, in comparison to other living organisms. And while it can be argued that each living organism has a different impact, no living organism on the planet has evolved to where its impact has increased as rapidly as that of human beings.
That being said, our goal is to uncover new insights as we help you understand what is occurring and why. Through our research and reporting, as well as feedback from our followers, we hope to inspire you to accelerate your rate of influence to help minimize and in some instances, reverse the human impact upon the natural environment.
We have some expectation of our own, one of which is to be held accountable for what we share; a pledge to be balanced, fair, and truthful. While opinions will have an opportunity to be expressed from our journalists as well as our readers, we will not coerce or use scare tactics to bring you the stories that best reflect the events related to our natural environment. If we make an argument we will ensure that you have a legitimate resource to verify that claim. More importantly we expect you to push back so that we may look inwardly to test ourselves about any assertions related to our reporting.
With that, welcome. We look forward to a fully engaging journey as we seek to understand more about our global environmental system that connects us all.
