He calls himself the Naughty Environmentalist, but Kade BP Hutchinson is one of the good guys. A water resources scientist (or hydrogeologist if you want to be fancy) for more than a decade, Kade has recently begun building an online presence to highlight important environmental news, with a focus on water issues.
"After reading ‘Pale Blue Dot’ at 16, the passion for earth, planetary, and space sciences that Carl Sagan shared with his audiences inspired me to study, and in my turn, both teach and write about these subjects," Kade said via email. "That ongoing commitment led naturally to blogging, aggregating, and finally curating news on these subjects."
Beyond the main Naughty Environmentalist collection, he curates a trio of related troves about green living, wilderness, and planetary exploration.
But water remains his top priority: “Graduate school in the desert Southwest further impressed upon me the particularly fragile and critical state of our water supplies,” he said.
