Today, the Earth got a little hotter, and a little more crowded. @@ Global Warming in 60 Seconds - a good summary of the main facts, done in 1950s...
World leaders converged at the United Nations in New York City this past week for Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's much anticipated Climate Summit, a l...
Imagine a world in which all our energy needs comes from clean, renewable sources. Every building could be covered and powered by solar panels. Transportation could be provided by electric vehicles.
Each week seems to bring new twists in Middle Eastern geopolitics, with shockwaves on the energy market and in particular oil prices. The recent reshuffle in Saudi Arabia heralds a major break with established tradition and watershed in the trends of the oil industry.
Springtime means baseball season -- a nice evening out at the ballpark with a hot dog, peanuts, and a cold beverage. We all love a home run -- except when it's against our team, of course. So we here at the Sierra Club decided to mix baseball and politics to make it clear just who's playing on the polluters' team and who's on the side of clean air and clean water protections.
The order requires the state to incorporate climate change impacts into its five-year infrastructure plan as well as its planning and investment decisions.

Block Island calls itself the "Last Great Place," but this small island 12 miles off the coast of Rhode Island is first in the hearts of environmentalists and clean energy advocates across the nation today. Big things are happening just off the shore of that little island.
For the last few weeks commentators, politicians and many sectors of the western public have been perhaps surprised by Vladimir Putin's somewhat reconciliatory tone towards the U.S. and the West.

It may sound like an idea dreamed up at Woodstock with the help of some mind-altering substances, but researchers are finding ways to tap into the power of photosynthesis to generate at least small amounts of electricity.
Teesside Collective is a landmark project which is on track to revolutionise UK industry through carbon capture and storage (CCS) of emissions. But what actually is industrial CCS and how close are we to seeing low emissions from energy intensive industries?
When you think of someone who is COMMITTED, you think of courage, determination, someone with a strong character and a stick-with-it-ness no matter what. Sounds pretty noble doesn't it?
A U.S. Energy Information Administration analysis released Monday reveals that the country's energy-related carbon emissions grew last year, but more slowly than the economy as a whole, representing a decoupling of emissions and economic growth that is projected to continue through 2015.
I do so much of my work for my daughter's future. I imagine that many of my colleagues who are parents feel the same. We work together to phase out coal plants so that families can enjoy cleaner air and water. We demand clean-energy investments to help fight climate change so that our kids and grandkids will have a safer, healthy planet when they grow up.
If we don't strengthen our support of scientific research, the engine of innovation that gave our nation a competitive edge in the last century may lose steam. A "refuel" is in order to keep our job-stimulating innovation engine on pace. America's economic competitors are moving to increase their own investments, and it would be incredibly short-sighted to fall behind.
