If global agreement on addressing climate change cannot be achieved, how can we possibly expect any global consensus on "technomanagement" of the atmosphere where the risks of serious negative consequences are so grave?
The fundraising for Virginia Governor-Elect Terry McAuliffe's inaugural party is seeing a serious lift due to donations from fossil-fuel dependent corporations. That these fossil-foolish interests can (seemingly) buy a seat at the table for such relatively paltry amounts is disconcerting.
The threats of air pollution and climate change don't respect international boundaries. We face them together; we must find a way to fight them together and seize the opportunity to shape the clean energy economy of the future.
What happens to the family or the town that starts inhaling propane due to unregulated fracking? What happens to the people whose aquifers are drained in the process of fracking?
The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is set to vote on whether it will provide $900 million in funding for a new coal power plant in Pakistan. This project clearly violates the terms of those public commitments so the U.S., U.K., Nordic countries, and others must vote no on that project.
Chimpanzees have languished in laboratories for decades, sometimes subjected to painful experimentation and often warehoused in barren cages. But now the fate of these remarkable and highly intelligent beings has taken a monumental turn for the better.
Like millions of parents and activists who oppose genetically modified food, I feel that the stakes are very high in this battle the safety of our world's food supply. If we are to win it, we are going to have to fight tougher. And smarter.
Urging women to adopt a healthy, humane vegan diet in order to lose weight isn't "fat shaming" any more than urging people with heart disease to eat better is "clogged-artery shaming." The use of the word "shaming" is a sham.

At two public hearings on proposed regulation, residents of Chicago and southern Illinois showed they stand united against fracking in the Land of Lincoln.
Food has great power and potential. For us, it has made our lives whole once again and been a path for greater inclusion for Chris and others with autism. Indeed, a place at the table of life.
Protecting the environment is important to a lot of ski areas (as well as to most of their customers), and many have taken steps to reduce their energy consumption, increase recycling, and improve their overall environmental sustainability.
News that we are losing forests globally at a rate of 50 football fields a minute should come as no surprise.
Last month, the Brazilian mining company Vale was invited to present its perspective on a panel entitled, "Voices of Rights Holders in the Extractives Industry." This is like inviting the CIA to a panel on the rights of victims of torture.
Garbage breeds everywhere -- old sneakers, crushed beer cans, plastic bottles, broken glass and plastic household items defile the ought-to-be pristine shores.
When I needed a new roof on my house in 2009, I researched putting roofing in that could produce electricity from photovoltaic solar tiles.
What is worrisome is these commercials are the only glimpse into farming that millions of people will ever see. A generation that's been raised on artificial ingredients is now being fed a diet of farming fiction.
In the last few years, sales of natural and organic foods have become big business. Annual revenues have nearly tripled since 2001, and they now exceed $91 billion. Healthy food isn't just for hippies any more, and corporate America wants in on the action.
