I have always been uncomfortable with labels — Democrat, Republican, Environmentalist.  Once you are labelled people expect you to adopt a long list of positions on various issues.  Does an “Environmentalist” mean you are for protecting the environment?  Who isn’t — but at what cost?

I like the term steward — a steward of nature.  Humans are part of this thing called nature — and their concerns (jobs, a future, etc.) must be weighed against protecting other aspects of nature.

So I call myself a Pragmatic Steward — weighing cost versus benefit along with a host of other concerns as I do my best to be a good steward of nature.

This site is a place to discuss issues surrounding the stewardship of nature — particularly as they relate to energy and buildings — a topic of great interest to me.
