Our perception of the world is horribly off because the scale we use to measure ourselves is skewed and it will never be stacked in our favor unless there is a radical transformation. And that transformation does not exist outside of an encounter with Jesus.
In today's news report: EPA gives Obama reason to reject Keystone XL pipeline; Feds must account for rising sea levels; Scarborough calls liberals 'science deniers'; Extreme weather whiplash from Boston to San Francisco.
I recently had the pleasure of talking with Ta'Kaiya about the video while delving into the changing face of social engagement that is bringing healing for our communities and the environment.
Senators, if creating jobs is what you are after, then take a hard look at the astonishing growth of the clean energy industry, a sector that employs thousands of Latinos.
This is the first installment of Near Zero Solutions, a round-up of climate and energy news, focusing on efforts to move the world toward zero greenhouse gas emissions.
If all the carbon that goes through the Keystone pipeline is captured and stored, it's about 2.5% of the annual US energy-related emissions, a toenail on the nation's carbon footprint. But it's a reasonable, feasible start.
The world's best scientists are telling us that our activities are changing the climate, and if we do not act forcefully, we'll continue to see rising oceans, longer, hotter heat waves, dangerous droughts and floods, and massive disruptions that can trigger greater migration, conflict, and hunger around the globe.
The reality is, we are getting closer to a consensus on climate change, not further away, despite increased spending on research by climate deniers. Pretending that a few holdouts with no actual evidence -- only skepticism -- are on the precipice of a scientific breakthrough simply because it suits you agenda can have dangerous results.
Technologies such as solar and wind are advancing so rapidly that by the time the first new nuclear reactors are installed in India, they will be less costly than nuclear energy. Most importantly, the alternative technologies are cleaner and safer.
Bjorn Lomborg's latest Wall Street Journal op-ed resurrects repeatedly demolished distortions of fact to downplay the real and increasingly documented threats of climate change. His trademark tactic is to acknowledge that climate change is real and human-caused, only to then dismiss the solutions -- reducing emissions and promoting clean energy now -- as unnecessary or infeasible.
Nestled in the fields of Nebraska is a farmhouse of horrors where government scientists experiment on pigs, cows and sheep with disturbing results and hardly any oversight. The purpose of this taxpayer-funded mad science is to maximize the meat industry's bottom line.
Today, the Earth got a little hotter, and a little more crowded. Gocomics.com "whether an event is caused by climate change ... is the wrong ques...
At Catholic Relief Services, we are very aware of the impact of climate change on the poor around the world; that those who have contributed the least to this problem are suffering -- and will suffer -- the most from it.
The disconnect between where the scientific community is on the causes of climate change, and what Congress thinks, is profound. Congress is also out of step with the American public.
NASA's first mission of 2015 is underway, successfully launching a Delta II rocket equipped with a soil moisture mapping satellite at 9:22 a.m. EST Saturday from Vandenberg Air Force Base on the Central Coast of California.
Climate injustice affects folks disproportionately based on socio-economic status and value within society. For Black folk in the United States, that usually means we face the blunt end.
