It's past time for PETA to explain what happened to Wilbur Cerate's dog. Because until we know more, all we can say about this terrible story is that a family is grieving, and some professionally sinister mustache-twirlers working for the meat industry have that much more ammunition in their war against animals.
Last week, the Air Force unveiled its latest technological innovation. With a fleet of Nissan Leafs, Ford F-series trucks, and other vehicles, the Air Force took an important step that may eventually revolutionize how we think about the cars we drive and the way we keep the lights on.
Solar is a completely renewable and wildly abundant resource that slashes a household's carbon emissions. And it's something we can feel good about. Ever heard of a catastrophic solar spill? An asthma attack because of a solar panel? A military operation defending our access to the sun? Nope.
There's no good reason to support Canadian tar sands expansion, much less allow more dirty tar sands oil into our country. Even though everything about tar sands oil is destructive, dirty, and dangerous, oil companies (and their champions on the Hill) are determined to bring as much of it as they can across our border, even if it means bending, breaking, or changing the rules.
It's premature to depart from John Muir before we have more fully visited with him. We take it for granted that he saved places like Yosemite just because they were beautiful. There's more to it.
The holiday season is almost here -- a time to share gifts, food, and happiness with friends and family. It's also a time to remember those struggling to make ends meet. This holiday season, consumers and businesses can make a difference by reducing food waste, which helps save money, feed the hungry, and protect the environment.
Republicans are making a big mistake if they think that because environmental protection ranks far down on the public's list of priorities, the issue is fair game.
Chinese-processed chicken can easily appear on school lunch trays, despite the USDA's initial statement to the contrary. That means we may be exposing an especially vulnerable population -- children -- to potential food safety risks.
Almost nine out of 10 Americans eat a turkey at Thanksgiving, according to the National Turkey Federation. But most Americans do not stop to consider how their turkey was actually raised and killed.
Since 2012, Rosie and Opal -- a pair of middle-aged, retired circus elephants -- had been living at Hope Elephants, a facility in Hope, Maine. But Rosie and Opal's storyline took an unexpected turn.
A broad range of community members in Iowa City, Iowa kicked off the "Ecopolis Forum" today, a groundbreaking series of monthly winter conversations on creating the first regenerative city of the arts, food, renewable energy, and commerce in the heartland.
Simple steps like these can help calm anxieties and make parents feel empowered by their ability to keep their children safe and happy.
By tapping just a small fraction of our solar potential, we can make a big difference in the quality of our lives and the future of the planet. But we're not arguing that we should stop there.
Many former Obama administration officials now work as lobbyists or PR professionals on behalf of the LNG exports industry, as do many former Bush administration officials. So too do those with ties to potential 2016 Democratic Party presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton.
The damage Climategate delivered to the international negotiations on climate action cannot be overlooked. We also must be careful not to give it too much credit either.
Certainly, there is a strong economic argument to be made for treating employees better. Frederick F. Reichheld's 2001 study The Loyalty Effect proved that customers are loyal not so much to a store as to its employees.
Let's think sustainably and let's change our behaviors so that we can reduce our individual carbon footprint to make a global sustainable improvement in our lifestyles and in the lives of millions.
The problem lies in when we try and make blanket statements about all wheat production. For each different variety of wheat whether it be durum wheat, hard red spring wheat, or even soft red winter wheat, there are different production methods for each one.
For each modest step forward on climate stabilization, the latest election ensures that Americans are destined to march several steps backward when it comes to reliance on climate-altering fossil fuels. It's a recipe for good times for Big Energy and its congressional supporters and bad times for the rest of us.
