As this is only the second installment of The Sustainable Angler, I thought I would provide a bit of background. I am an angler, writer, and conservationist who founded a sustainability and marketing consultant agency so that I can protect what I love. In other words, I help businesses increase their growth while minimizing their environmental impact by turning their sustainability achievements into marketing stories. While this is all well and good, there are many people that don’t believe in climate change and everyone has a right to their beliefs. That said, I believe in science, but I want to be clear…I am not a scientist, and neither are the people I have been interviewing for The Sustainable Angler. We are anglers who believe in science, and the fact is 97% of climate scientists agree that burning fossil fuels is accelerating the warming of the planet to dangerous levels that are negatively impacting fisheries, which is reason enough for me to take action. My point is, there is nothing political about science. I simply want to protect what I love. So, the intent of The Sustainable Angler is to educate and create more awareness about what I believe to be a fixable problem and Todd Tanner helps to shed some light on the subject.
