Thank you for visiting this blog. Whatever reason may have brought you to this blog, we hope that you will find an increased appreciation for our fragile planet here. Although we realize, that this blog might not answer the questions that you have, we hope that it will certainly stimulate more .
This blog is /will feature contributions from several people as opposed to one single person.
Who are we?
We are a handful of individuals who are concerned about the environment. We are based in three different continents : Asia, South America and Europe. We were educated in some of the well known universities on different disciplines and are employed in different facets, but unified by one single thread that binds us-our concern for the environment. Some of us have engaged/ or are currently working on research projects concerned with environment. We do not claim to know all the answers to the questions, but we hope that we can stimulate some degree of healthy debate. Currently there are four contributors to this blog- DB-based in Brazil, SS & JS -based in India and RS based in the UK.
So what is ecoratorio?
We made this word up by combining ecology and oratorio. We believe that the name is apt for our thoughts in the cyberspace because it encapsulates the two key elements that are the cornerstones of this blog.
The Merrian Webster dictionary defines an oratorio as 'a lengthy choral work usually of a religious nature consisting chiefly of recitatives, arias, and choruses without action or scenery'. We believe that a concern for the environment is a sacred duty. Here we will give our views on it. You are unlikely to find that our views agree with each other and perhaps that is where our blog will differ. After all we are indviduals, with our individual views which will be reflected here.
