So, if you're casting about for something to do this Earth Day, why not take the bus, subway or train? And post photos of your Earth Day ride on Facebook and tweet them using hastags #transit and #EarthDay.
This Earth Day, put people before polluters. If supporters like you stand up and demand the strongest standard possible, we can put our country -- and our planet -- on the path to a sustainable future and ensure a cleaner, healthier future for everyone.
Do you know the difference between the terms "climate change" and "global warming? Which of these is more ominous? They are often used interchangeably...
Hate mail, harassment campaigns, accusations of scientific fraud and threats of lawsuits have become the new normal for climate scientists and researchers who study climate change denial. These problematic conditions have a chilling effect on scientific research.
The next generation of inventors, policymakers, and CEOs will determine the fate of the environment and our economy. In order to ensure that these future leaders are up to the challenge, a commitment to comprehensive climate science education is needed today.

We risk leaving our children a lonelier planet -- a world where many animals and plants are just a memory.
Economic growth in and of itself is not a guaranteed pathway to global prosperity and progress and indeed, under our current economic model, economic growth is the biggest driver accelerating climate change. We have to start asking the right questions: growth of what and for what?
If in one of the most defining religious-political texts of the human species we'd been charged with stewardship of the natural world, not some sort of adolescent, consequence-free control over it, what sort of spiritual understanding would have evolved over the millennia?
