Another blogger for nuclear energy – Ecomodernist Mom

This morning I ran across a relatively new blog titled Ecomodernist Mom that deserves to be visited with some regularity.

I feel a bit of a kinship to the publisher; she lives in Florida but loves mountains enough to feature them in her site’s banner. She’s a busy mom struggling with raising kids in suburbia, loves nature, loves humanity, drives an SUV and believes that smart applications of technology offer a way to balance her love of nature with her rejection of the notion that humans are some kind of invasive species.

Here is a quote from the About page of Ecomodernist Mom:

Exploring ways to use our influence as mothers to drive pragmatic, evidence-based solutions for the health of our children and our planet.

This page is not funded by industry or special interest groups. It has been created out of love for my children, frustration at the anti-science movement, and hope that rational voices will eventually be heard in the fight for our planet. – Amy

I’m obviously not a mother, but I have a mother, I live with a mother and have two daughters who are mothers. They are some of my favorite people to hang out with.

Amy Levy, the publisher of Ecomodernist Mom, recently co-wrote an article on Huffington Post titled Ecomodernism: An Environmental Movement Unites Politically Divided Moms

I intend to keep reading Amy Levy’s work. You can follow her on Twitter @AmysTruth.
