This time of year seems right for thinking deep thoughts about who we are and where we are going. Since we began in 2007 as an environmentally focused hyperlocal blog, we have covered mainly coastal stories.
But we do not live in a vacuum. Environmental issues particularly are interconnected. So I propose that we do more reporting and commenting on the global environment that we are a part of.
For seven years, we have done a good job of covering local wildlife, pollution, stewardship, conservation, land use, open space, etc. (our motto is "cover the waterfront").
Now let's start connecting our local stories to the bigger picture. Let’s cover environmental issues that concern us all on the regional, state, national, and international level—but always with our unique coastal perspective.
What say you, men and women of Pacifica Riptide? Are you up to the challenge?
