The school is always the best place to cultivate young people's "sustainable development" consciousness and living habits. According to July 24th, 2018, the Ministry of Education issued the "National Statistical Bulletin on the Development of Education in 2018", the data show that there are 518,800 schools at all levels in the country in 2018, and 276 million students in all levels of education with different academic qualifications. The best period of one's life is spent at school. Therefore, our school should attach importance to the combination of protection and education, actively explore the development model of a green school and also effectively promote the construction of a green school in China. Staying on such a school for a few years will bring life-long benefits to students. To build a green and sustainable school is not only to cultivate harmony between the young generation and nature, to foster a green production and lifestyle, but also to provide an irreplaceable place for the healthy growth of the "future flowers" of China.
Sears, however, is chiefly concerned with soil conservation. During the great westward migration across the continent, he notes, pioneer farmers felt little obligation to conserve the soil, and the inevitable result was a "kind of predatory farming" (p. 48). Predatory farming meant that once the soil of a farmstead became exhausted, one could always move farther west to where it was rich once again. The forests were cut down and the grasslands plowed under; and when the rains and winds came, the soil washed and blew away. Predatory farming still exists, and the need for the vigilant practice of proper soil conservation techniques is as great now as at any time in the past. A variety of conservation measures are particularly needed in the Great Plains where only a delicate root system anchors the soil against the nearly constant wind. Once the grasslands have been destroyed by overgrazing or by plowing, drought and wind will play havoc with the soil. Still, the task is not to grow two blades of grass where only one grew before, but rather to develop a land utilization policy that will preserve the soil when only half a blade can be grown. If such a land utilization program is not instituted, Sears warns, the result will be future Dust Bowls and the irreplaceable loss of topsoil-all to the detriment of the world's food supply.
In broadening their focus out from the years around the first millennium, the editors have, seemingly unconsciously (for there is no mention of it in their introduction), taken up a project left unfinished by the early death of Tim Reuter in 2002. Reuter's seminal essays "The 'Imperial Church System'" and "A Europe of the Bishops" provide some of the most-cited references in this volume, and he was embarked on "a study of episcopal power across the longue durée" at the time of his death.  He published the early fruits of this, sadly unfinished study, amongst other places, in Gilsdorf's collection.  As Janet Nelson writes in her introduction to a posthumous collection of his essays, "he himself would have hoped that the project could be taken forward by other hands. It seems likelier to be attempted by a team than a lone scholar. For as well as being among the outstanding medieval historians of his generation, Tim combined knowledge, skills and interests in a unique and irreplaceable way."  Reuter is irreplaceable, but the appearance of this rich volume of essays by thirteen North American, British and French scholars, which has its origins in a 2003 Kalamazoo panel, demonstrates that he was not working in isolation, and that the baton has been successfully passed to others. The Bishop Reformed records an important stage in the path of this renewed collective effort to reconsider episcopal authority, with episcopal interest in reform as one aspect of that, across the three crucial centuries from 900 to 1200. 2b1af7f3a8
