Spring on the Great Lakes is a time when the ice covering the lakes melts, snowfall is gradually replaced by rainfall, and below the surface of the lakes, migratory fish start their move towards the rivers and streams where they'll spawn.
As we continue this planetary-scale geoengineering experiment of pumping carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and seeing what happens, it's worth considering that maybe this path has already been taken by predecessors a long time ago, in galaxies far, far away.
The fishing industry remains an unregulated Wild West. So how can consumers protect themselves against eating tainted or mislabeled fish? As activists led a revolution in dairy that demanded milk without added steroids, it's time we do the same for seafood transparency.
At 5 am as many as 500 cars and trucks are lined up outside the gates of the fairgrounds in Fresno, CA. Many of the people in the line even camped out here overnight to get something that might not normally be that thrilling... a tailpipe emissions test.

When the U.S. is willing to step forward domestically, it can have a catalyzing impact in other countries. This is evident in the new commitment from China to peak its emissions -- a commitment no one thought was possible just a few short years back. This commitment occurred only after the U.S. showed that it was taking strong domestic action.
Today is the last day of women's history month. This year, two fantastic women senators will mark the ends of their historic Senate careers. Senators Barbara Boxer and Barbara Mikulski have served a collective 70 years in Congress. In those decades, they've established themselves as strong environmental champions.
Natural gas is indeed a "cleaner" burning fuel than coal (America's sweetheart energy source), as it emits less CO2. But depending on the producers' ability to capture methane leakage during the extraction phase, it is not necessarily better for the climate.
