There are reasons to be concerned about the environment not necessarily related to climate change. Although 150 to 200 years is insufficient to document climate change on a planet about 4 and 1/2 billion years old, the increasing pressure from human population growth, depletion of natural resources, and disappearing plant and animal species should be a concern.

My current research involves examining small and medium sized enterprises and what (if any) strategic or business planning owners and managers are doing with respect to environmental sustainability. Right now, this is an exploratory case study of 15 businesses located in the Midwest.

I welcome your thoughts on this subject.
