Kees Kruythoff | September 19, 2014 | Green

Climate Change You Can Believe In

Bill Moyers | September 19, 2014 | Politics
We know it's important not to confuse day-to-day weather patterns with climate, which measure variations of things like temperatures and humidity over long periods of time, but it's clear that these disasters are made more powerful by global warming. The pain is only going to get worse for us and for future generations, unless we act now.

Miscalculation could be disastrous for every person on the planet, particular the poor and vulnerable.

Gernot Wagner | September 19, 2014 | Green
The climate movement is home to quite a few who go the full-on vegan, composting, skip-coffee-because-it's-bad-for-the-climate route. But going green is only good if it actually gets somewhere.

Rep. Adam Schiff | September 18, 2014 | Green
No one can deny that California is facing one of its worst droughts in recorded history. The challenge in crafting a long-term solution to the drought is that it requires us to confront the broader problem of climate change, and for many involved in the issue, climate change is a mirage.
