WWF's statement surprised many long-time palm oil watchers, but the organization deserves enormous credit for sticking to its principles and making clear that companies cannot claim sustainability just by sticking an RSPO label on their product while continuing to destroy the Earth's forests.
By 2050, California & Southwest Could Have 100% Dry Years NASA Says, reports Climate Progress, according to a NASA analysis, which basically lays out ...
This past week, the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere exceeded 400 parts per million (ppm) for the first time in at least 4 million years. Here's a simpler way to put it: pollution in the air, the kind that captures greenhouse gases and makes our planet warmer, just reached the highest level ever in recorded history.
Too often the news media have provided a platform for fossil fuel industry-funded think tanks and advocacy groups to make spurious claims about global warming and renewable energy and allowed them to pass themselves off as disinterested parties promoting free markets and limited government.
Some are calling it "liberal indoctrinationm" others calling it "censorship," a teacher has resigned, and what started out as a simple presentation by 13-year-old Xiuhtezcatl and his 9-year-old brother Itzcuauhtl has turned into a national story.
Are Google's driverless car and Siri just the beginning for applied machine intelligence/Big Data? Automated trucks, for example, could eliminate millions of jobs. Will this type of automation be good or bad -- economically and socially? How will it transform society?
When money so heavily corrupts politics -- when special interests spread their cash not just to politicians but to the advocacy groups and media companies that host and contribute to policy debates -- it's hard to sort out which opinions have been reached honestly and independently.
The simple truth is that our antiquated energy policies, along with other industrialized nations, are disrupting the planet's climate and threating many species, including our own. But much of our economy is dependent on fossil fuels.
You have a powerful voice. Speak up about climate change. You can speak up about how those healthy grains and vegetables are going to cost us a whole lot more as droughts become more severe with climate change.
Republican pollster and strategist Frank Luntz was caught on a hidden camera recently, talking smack about one of the most influential and least constructive people in America: Rush Limbaugh.

Demands on the Colorado River exceed the river's average supply, and this problem is projected to get worse as populations continue to grow and as climate changes increase temperatures and reduce runoff.
Yesterday, for the first time in human history, concentrations of carbon dioxide, the primary global warming pollutant, hit 400 parts per million in our planet's atmosphere. Now, more than ever before, we are reaping the consequences of our recklessness.
Increasing carbon dioxide emissions and freshwater runoff challenge the ocean's ability to neutralize acidification -- an imbalance caused by absorption of the greenhouse gas from the air.

Politicians use accounting tricks to make us think their paltry efforts are worth a damn. For one, they dilute the annual impact of climate pollution by spreading it over 100 years. If we don't make serious progress within the decade, however, what we do afterward will be moot.
