Serial killing and trophy hunting are terrifyingly similar. As wildlife researcher and author Gareth Patterson points out, both types of killers often immerse themselves in violent imagery.
The biggest step our country has ever taken to address climate change is possible in large part because of solar power's incredible potential. But we can't stop there.
Personal changes and policy changes (like the recently finalized, historic Clean Power Plan to reduce climate pollution from the U.S. power sector) are what will get us to that better future, for everyone. So let's keep fighting for truth, justice, and a new, clean-energy-based American way.
All dogs are different. Like people, most dogs will "tell you" if they don't like what you are doing. They can't talk, so they will tell you by flinching or moving away, punching you with their noses, or growling. As with people, your relationship will go best if you respect their boundaries and respect their personal space. And, as with people, once a dog is familiar with you, the two of you will learn how you can interact and have fun together.

The people who live in the Arctic, including indigenous communities, also need more resources for economic development, clean energy, and access to communications that many of us in the rest of the U.S take for granted.
Nuclear fusion is considered by many to be the holy grail of clean energy -- a technology that would transform the world, if only we could figure out how to do it. But harnessing the same process that powers our sun is no small task.
The combination of robust world crude oil supply growth and weak global demand has contributed to rising global inventories and falling crude oil prices. The obvious winners of a lower oil price are oil importers and energy intensive sectors but a speculation that cheaper fossil fuels would mean a serious setback for renewables has been rife.
Have we already heard enough about plastic pollution? No, on the contrary I believe we have become inured to the problem. Stop. Think. Do I need this straw, this bag, this little red stir stick, this little plastic green grass with my sushi, or that bottle of water?
Businesses and governments recognize that the low-carbon economy is inevitable and irresistible. Through the We Mean Business coalition, 154 companies with revenues totaling $3.5 trillion, and 111 investors with $8.1 trillion in assets under management, have committed to climate action.
Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) -- the national parks of the seas -- are being designated all over the globe. Which is fantastic news. Who doesn't want to give fish species verging on extinction a break?
