A Brief Blog Profile: Earth & Industry
by Thomas Hynes
The words earth and industry don't always go together. Or maybe it's better to say they don't always play well together. They remind me of the words oil and vinegar in a way. The authors of the blog, Earth & Industry, put it slightly more eloquently. "We can no longer think of the earth and industry as competing interests that only thrive at the expense of the other." In other words, these forces must work together if either are to survive.
This blog specializes in reporting on that intersection. On Earth & Industry, you can read about the best women to follow on Twitter for green business. In this post, you can learn about the biggest companies you didn't know were in the solar industry. On this post, which i will probably spend too much time on, you can see a visualization of the history of sustainable transportation. And on this post you can watch a quick animated explanation on how fracking works. This isn't the only post about fracking on the blog, however. Fracking is a complicated and heated issue. It's also a complicated process. With this post, readers can at least have a better sense as to what the full story is.
It's important to note that this blog doesn't want to do away with business. In fact, they strive for a balance of " people, planet and profit." Still this is a CSR blog. This is a "green" blog. Or put another way, without a healthy planet and people, profit isn't really worth all that much.
