We march because we know that climate change affects everyone, but its impacts are not equally felt: those who have contributed the least to causing the crisis are hit hardest, here and around the world.
Corporate science is, above all else, secretive. The flimsy excuse of "trade secrets" is used to prevent independent or academic scientists from evaluating exaggerated corporate claims.
The U.S is hedging its bets with the lesser of fossil fuel evils -- natural gas -- as a way to avoid the calamity of climate change. But is this gas really the answer to run away carbon emissions, polar ice caps disappearing and extreme weather woes?
No single march, of course, will alter the tide of history, but you have to begin somewhere (and then not stop). And to do so, you have to believe that the human ability to destroy isn't the best we have to offer and to remind yourself of our ability to protest, to hope, to dream, to act, and to say no to the criminals of history and yes to the children to come.
Without fundamental public health infrastructures in place, no country is stable, no society is secure, no resilience exists to withstand the shocks that our 21st-century world is delivering with ever-greater frequency and force.
A majority of Americans think global warming is real and that human activity's a factor, believing in the science behind reports on climate change. But some two-thirds of white evangelical Christians aren't convinced.
Looking above at recent temperature anomalies, the jet stream has once again wobbled down into the US, bringing unusually cool but refreshing weather to much of the US as California and Alaska bake.
Climate change can bring out the best in us and help reinvigorate our economy. That's usually not the headline of a story about climate change, but it's a headline we can write if we want to.
Evolutionary biologists have news for anyone accustomed to thinking of evolution as a long-term proposition: Evolution also takes place on a day-to-day basis, and it's a tool we must use to keep drug-resistant diseases from spiraling out of control and to prevent mass extinctions.
Climate change threatens to undermine the United Nations' progress in both of its critical missions -- peacekeeping and development: Hardship often leads to conflict, and the worsening impacts of climate change are causing hardship.
Ostensibly a bill to strengthen safety regulation of oil refineries, SB 1300 would eviscerate the state's freedom of information law. The original version of this legislation required oil companies to file reports on scheduled shutdowns, typically for maintenance, of their refinery facilities. So far, no problem. Then came last-minute amendments
We need to move the conversation about climate change past how bad things are going to get, and into how we are going to solve the problem and complete a transition to a clean energy future.
Working with local farmers, cooks and artists, Jones and Public Art St. Paul fashioned CREATE into a zero waste public art initiative to take the challenge of bringing healthy food directly to the table.
Your pet is your loving responsibility and your veterinarian wants you to make the best decision for you and your pet.
There is dramatic urgency and time is short. We know that world leaders are going to have to throw everything they can at this problem to successfully combat catastrophic global warming and climate change.
That's because just four weeks after the People's Climate Mobilisations, on October 17, 30 Pacific Island "Climate Warriors" are going to paddle in canoes that they have built, into the oncoming path of coal ships in the world's largest coal port -- Newcastle, Australia.
Changes in energy infrastructure and in the global economy will continue to influence the nature of work. None of these changes ensure that people will receive a reasonable share of the wealth they produce.
On September 23, NYC will host the United Nations Climate Summit, one of the foremost events to address reducing carbon and other greenhouse gas emissions that threaten the quality of life for billions of people.

What if we allowed "ultra-sustainability" to seep into our lives the way ultra-excess has? What if we did not have to give up anything up to get ultra-sustainable?
