Americans went into the voting booth yesterday with horrific images of the fallout from Superstorm Sandy fresh in their minds. The true cost of ignoring science's warnings about global warming are now all too vivid.
Tax policies that encourage carbon emissions range from subsidies for oil companies to mortgage interest deductions for energy-wasting McMansions, but neither Romney nor Obama has addressed it head-on.
As the ice disappears, polar bears are drowning and starving. Indeed, scientists have documented a wide range of impacts from the polar meltdown, from smaller body sizes to decreasing cub survival rates.
Perhaps no major issue facing the entire world is more pressing than climate change, yet so far neither of our candidates for president have demonstrated that they are "awake" to either the impacts or the solutions.
One does not have to look at a chart to notice that glaciers are melting and the ocean is rising. The areas that are actually debated by scientists are: the human factor and the earth's reaction mechanism.
AB32 should be a no-brainer for California businesses, so long as it's done right. Implementing the law is a challenge we all face moving forward, but it's one that smart state businesses should be engaged in, not fighting against.
Why do you think Calgary-based Nexen Inc. is so eager to sell to China National Offshore Oil Corp.? While state-owned CNOOC thinks it is buying a strategic reserve, what it is really buying are huge cost overruns and production delays.
We won't know how much damage Big Carbon's media blitz has done until Election Day -- clearly it hasn't changed underlying public demand that the U.S. move forward, not backward, into the 21st, not the 20th century, and embrace energy innovation.
The Washington Post breaks down what to expect now that the law governing many of our nation's farm policies has expired -- among the potential consequences: higher milk prices and the lapse of some conservation programs.
What we say, do, and eat has global implications, and on these three major security frontiers we must do better: religious, food and climate security. Each of us has a role to play, and each of us is capable of making a difference.
While powerful, the polluter playbook is no match for the truth and those brave enough to shout it from the rooftops. That is the lesson of Rachel Carson. Her courage inspired citizens to demand change, even as polluters tried to silence the author of Silent Spring.
A new study in the Journal of Environmental Studies and Sciences contends that the U.S. government significantly underestimated the social cost of carbon in 2010 in its effort to establish a unified cost of carbon for various agencies to use when formulating policy.
Everyone who engages in the business of growing, storing, packaging and selling food is being called on to creatively adapt to the tremendous food security challenges that are staring us in the face. That means we must all hunker down, collaborate and innovate to win the real world hunger games.
