THE BARLEY REVIEW

 

The Barley Review is a free, monthly compilation of relevant news and information devoted to restoration of America’s Everglades and clean water in Florida. Delivered straight into your inbox, the Review shares the good, the bad and the ugly – and never ever sugarcoats it.

By explaining the political and environmental science, what is broken and why, and what it takes to fix it, we work to educate and inspire the public and lawmakers to action. 

NO SUGARCOATING ZONE

It’s tough to learn about the state of affairs for our waterways and Everglades and discover the debauchery of the sugar industry in Florida, we know. But the only antidote to the vast sums of money Big Sugar pours into the political system, the outright lies and manipulation, is a well-informed and committed citizenry. 

For our own sanity – and yours – we go out of our way to find images and stories that inspire us AND things that make us LOL. We share some of our favorites in each update. Please know, we will never share your information with anyone, for any reason.

REFRESHER: DEFINITION OF GREED

Greed (or avarice) is an uncontrolled longing for increase in the acquisition or use of material gain (be it food, money, land, or animate/inanimate possessions); or social value, such as status, or power. Greed has been identified as undesirable throughout known human history because it creates behavior-conflict between personal and social goals.

Thankfully, it is one of the deadly sins that doesn’t ensnare most of us. Dante’s Inferno likely provides a glimpse of what lies in store for the greediest we deal with. Let’s just say we would not trade places with any of them.
