Hello. My name is Matthew Koehler and I live in Missoula, Montana. The views expressed in this blog are my own, unless otherwise noted. I’m interested in a future that is more sustainable. I simply believe more of the same is not an option, as the current global financial crisis illustrates perfectly.
By hosting this blog I’m not implying that I lead the greenest life in the world. I fully acknowledge that my current lifestyle is not necessarily “sustainable.” I’ve certainly taken steps in the right direction but there is always room for improvement and I welcome that challenge. The definitions for clean, green and sustainable (above) are used as I found them in a dictionary and are not meant to be the only definitions.
My intent with this blog is to share, explore, learn about and promote the ideas, policies and actions that I believe will help put our region, country and world on a more sustainable path. At the same time, I will not shy away from highlighting policies and actions that stand in the way of a more sustainable future. Your comments, ideas, knowledge and insights are always welcomed.
I’m not very tech savvy so it may take me a while to figure out this whole wordpress thing. Please be patient. If you have ideas on how to improve this blog, please feel free to email me. Thanks.
