Lone Star Green

Lone Star Green is an award-winning bi-weekly column dedicated to the intersection of the natural world, human industry, and the unfolding challenges posed by a world out of balance. At this turbulent nexus live virtually every major story that finds its way to the front of the daily news cycle — from the health of our farmland and the vitality of our rivers, lakes, and beaches, to the price and safety of our energy sources and our changing climate and ongoing extinction crisis.

Since I started writing about these issues in 1997 there have been no end of talking heads from the think tanks and advocacy organizations offering up opinions. But there have been few informed independent minds on the market dedicated to delivering plain truths intended to enable people to chart their own course. This is the gap that Lone Star Green — honored by the Houston Press Club and national Association of Alternative Newsmedia with first-place awards — seeks to fill.

Originally penned under its “original crispy” formula exclusively for the San Antonio Current, Lone Star Green is now available to newspapers across the state and beyond. If you are interested in running LSG, drop me a note and I’ll rummage in my spice box for just the right blend to fit your taste and budget.

Lone Star Green has appeared in the Marfa Sentinel, Fort Worth Weekly, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Gilmer Mirror, Cherokeean Herald, KETR, and elsewhere.
