Peoples Climate March,
NRG CEO David Crane's recent blog 'Being Mad As Hell for the Clean Energy Revolution' is spot on. His passion inspires me to join in the call for action on the challenge of climate change and many societal issues that our world faces today.
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.
Americans are frustrated by inaction on climate change. That frustration is leading to action--like the People's Climate March. We hope you can join us in New York City.
As we are on the verge of the UN Climate Summit being held in New York on September 23, it is important to consider whether the maps we have on climate change are sufficiently up-to-date and whether we have the ability to understand them. Miscalculation could be disastrous for every person on the planet, particular the poor and vulnerable.
In the difficult aftermath of extreme weather events, higher rates of physical violence against women also often occur, notably in two of the most economically developed countries in the world: the United States and Australia.
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.
What can we do? If we want to slow the rate of warming in the atmosphere as well as the warming and rise of the oceans, we need to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
With cleaner, more selective fishing gear types available, and historic lows in fishery participation, there is no reason to continue using this unsustainable fishing gear.
If we can double our energy efficiency by 2030, a major objective of the Initiative, we can greatly reduce the threat of severe climate change, improve our environment, and save a LOT of money.
We need to stop ever more costly and risky extraction from places such as deepwater sites or the Arctic. We need to stop granting subsidies for fossil fuels - something that many of our governments have committed to do but have yet to put into practice.
Next week, world leaders will meet for the first time in five years to discuss climate change at a special summit convened by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. It is time they started to reflect the new reality.
The role and nature of private sector investment in producing positive social and environmental outcomes remains hotly contested.
Homes keep getting bigger while our buying power gets smaller and smaller. Maybe it's time to respect the "old" in our lives -- starting with our living spaces.
Our leaders aren't just dithering at the edges while the planet burns -- they're actively inviting the very companies that are causing this crisis to help fix it.

Rep. Adam Schiff,
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.
The Obama administration has come up with a way to support our farmers and our military veterans -- while at the same time helping our economy and our environment through more clean energy.

The ocean still contains a near-infinite bounty of food. We just need to seek it out.
To appeal to the tea party, with its distaste for big government and federal regulation, Senator Rubio has turned environmental flip-flopping into an art form.
Reducing greenhouse gas emissions could boost the economy rather than slow it, according to a new study by the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate. Better Growth, Better Climate: The New Climate Economy Report finds that roughly $90 trillion will be spent in the next 15 years...
