A Carbon Neutral Future Starts With Smart Energy Policy Today

Rick Fedrizzi | December 19, 2014 | Green
Too many people -- and way too many members of Congress -- can't seem to come to terms with this simple fact: no energy source or technology can succeed without a helping hand from Uncle Sam.

Prince William's International Leadership on Animal Conservation

Richard Leakey | December 19, 2014 | Green
The fight to save the world's wildlife is about much more than the beauty of the animals or the illegal activity that would destroy them. Our wildlife is essential to preserving the biodiversity of our world and to expanding our understanding and appreciation of human and animal life and evolution.

Race in the Food System

Heritage Radio Network | December 19, 2014 | New York
We need to take a hard look at what is causing this income disparity. Is it prejudice? Is it lack of economic or educational opportunities? Is the system corrupt, and if so, where? And what questions need to be asked to change that?

New York's Grassroots Triumph

Michael Brune | December 19, 2014 | Green
In New York State, at least, sanity has prevailed. By banning fracking, Governor Andrew Cuomo has acted to protect his state's citizens from a rapacious industry whose presence would inevitably result in significant health and environmental consequences.

During the Christmas holidays, a star called sun is leading the way toward a clean energy future that will save us from the worst consequences of the climate crisis. The alternative of the energy monopolies? A huge lump of coal.

Two Is Not Enough: Why the Campaign Against D.C.'s Marijuana Legalization Initiative Failed So Badly

Sam Tracy | December 19, 2014 | Politics
Prohibition and the modern Drug War, banning these drugs causes many more problems than it solves. Once people consider marijuana laws through the lens of tobacco and alcohol policy, it's obvious that when it comes to drugs that are regulated instead of criminalized, two is not enough.

Lisa Beres, BBEI, CGBP | December 19, 2014 | Healthy Living
What we do seek, and at the top of most people's wish list these days, is good health. Why then, do we adorn our homes with holiday décor and engage in activities that could be making the whole family ill?

Daniel Tomlinson | December 19, 2014 | Green
When you spend all of your time on the ground, you learn that this approach is broken. We all want power in the hands of people today, not decades from now.

Rob Kampia | December 19, 2014 | Politics
Since the Marijuana Policy Project was founded 20 years ago, I've oftentimes written a list of the top 10 victories at the end of each year. 2014 was either the best or second-best year in 20 years, depending on how you weigh the legalization victories in Colorado and Washington in 2012.

Canada by Cargo Bike

Chris Bruntlett | December 19, 2014 | Canada British Columbia
This would be the first time anyone attempted such a vast distance on a cargo bike. But Lamar saw it as the perfect way to show people across the country what a cargo bike is, and what it is capable of. The mission was a simple one: "I wanted to inspire individuals, families, and businesses to consider the endless possibilities of a cargo bike."

Firas Kittaneh | December 18, 2014 | Green
Mattresses are known to be highly recyclable, but unfortunately many simply throw away their used mattress once they've bought a new one. A mattress takes up precious landfill space and aren't easily compacted like typical trash.

Caroline Richter | December 18, 2014 | Religion
It was interesting to witness, how in this summer season in Peru, informal meetings and briefings would take place outside and chairs were moved to the grass areas and under the tress instead of being seated on concrete or inside the rooms.

What the Environmental Community Has Is a 'Failure to Communicate'

Miroslava Korenha | December 18, 2014 | Green
The environmental community has a communication problem. The problem lies neither with the validity of their facts and figures nor with the caliber of their experts. The problem is a failure to convey to the American people the relevance of the environment to their everyday lives.
