As the Earth has warmed over the past 30 years, the global water cycle has begun to change. In particular, our snows have begun to disappear. The impl...
When fiction becomes confused with fact, we sever our critical tether to reality. The conclusions from years of careful research, scrutinized by competing scientists and published in peer-reviewed journals carry no more weight with the public than the random thoughts of a bloated pundit.
The scientific debate about whether human-caused global warming exists is long over. The remaining window of time for the needed transformation is short, and the only real issue is how we respond. This is where U. S. leadership is most critical.
I am marching in the People's Climate March for many reasons, but two of them stand out. The first is my children.
European Civil Society Organizations staged a protest in front of the World Bank Group office in Brussels on Thursday to protest the weakening of environmental and social safeguards by the institution.
Climate justice, human rights, religion, and indigenous spirituality are all entwined and people are taking action in an unprecedented way this weekend.
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.
Peru, the world will be watching you, you have in your hands the opportunity to propel action that will have an impact in the lives of millions of women around the world.
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.
We come from different places theologically, but when it comes to the stewardship of our planet, we recognize our moral obligation to speak in one multi-faith voice that transcends our other differences.
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.
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.
