Apropos of Clark’s post on harbor seals, I’ll indulge in a bit of shameless self promotion. Washington Law & Politics recently posted online an article I wrote celebrating the often under-reported good news about the environment.
Here’s the crux:
Good news may not be the main story about Washington’s environment. But the environmental movement has committed a colossal communications blunder by failing to broadcast the good news along with the bad. In the pressing need to sound the alarm—and the need truly is pressing—we have forgotten to notice, or at least to advertise, that some important things are getting better.
Give it a read, if you have time, and let me know what you think.
(The article published this summer, but I originally wrote it over a year ago. That’s why few of the facts are a bit “aged.” Like a fine wine, let’s say.)

Thanks, Kristin. I’ll buy a beer for anyone else geeky enough to read this blog and yet hip enough to name the source that I’m riffing on for my headline. Offer expires tomorrow. And no fair using Google. You must rely on your inner hipster. Hey, even I have an inner hipster.
Hey, Eric. That would have to be Portland-based Modest Mouse.

Bingo. Looks like I owe you a beer, Howard. That will give us a chance to debate one of those eternal friendly rivalries of the Northwest: which city *really* has the better claim to Modest Mouse!
