"Leasing Coal, Fueling Climate Change: How the federal coal leasing program undermines President Obama's Climate Plan" tackles the dark underbelly of a rule that only polices coal downstream at the power plant level and largely ignores the upstream and global impacts of coal production at-large.
What would Amendment 1 mean in practical terms? Assuming the worst-case scenario:The state could not restrict foreign ownership of factory farms, or impose standards for animal care on these megafactories. That should concern every family farmer.
Policymakers across the country need to understand the regressive and unjust nature of net metering policies and take steps to fix it.

Rising American Electorate,
The Koch Brothers alone are estimated to spend $390 million in targeted races this year. In fact, reports in March already had them at the $30 million mark. Their goal? Protect dirty deniers who will, in turn, follow a right-wing agenda and protect the Koch's polluting interests.

Seattle and most northern cities in the U.S. waste millions in energy costs and precious natural resources by buying into the myth that white roofs are energy efficient regardless of climate zone.
In addition to the loss of beach habitat, ingestion of floating plastic bags, which look like jellyfish, is a likely factor in this decline. Light pollution from homes and resorts by nesting beaches can disorient turtles that rely on stars for navigation.

Breed Specific Legislation,
This isn't just a rhetorical debate -- the lives of millions of animals are at stake. So it's important to identify what we know about this maligned and often misidentified breed, as well as what we don't know.

San Francisco is one of the most expensive places in the country to live. The median rent for a one-bedroom apartment is $3,285. But! If you want to rent this beautiful valley in Yosemite National Park and then drown it, it will only set you back $30,000 a year.
