    Dear Editors and Friends,
    Issue 23 of the Electronic Green Journal has just been published at: http://egj.lib.uidaho.edu/egj23/index.html

    This issue opens with Fred Stoss's editorial on protecting access to environmental information and saving the Environmental Protection Agency Libraries. The EPA National Library Network is facing a big budget cut and the closure of some of their libraries that have served the public since 1972. In this issue we also published three articles, one research report, two essays, one column, and 19 book reviews. The first article, by authors from universities in Canada and Australia, argues which ideology and socio-political structure best supports sustainability. The second article by Annie Muldoon from Carleton
    University in Ottawa, examines possibilities of green consumerism, while the third article by Gordon Steinhoff from Utah State University presents problems reflected in the federal Environmental Impact Statements. Also, four authors from Bangladesh report on municipal wastewater characteristics of Sylhet city. Issue 23 also published two essays, one regular column by Flora Shrode and 19 book reviews.

    The first essay is by R. W. Miller on an ecological explanation for the environmental crises. The second essay by W. T. Johnson is on the spiritual lives of great environmentalists idealism. At this time we do not have any changes in our editorial board. As usual I would like to thank all you editors for their volunteering work and contributions to this issue.
