Insofar as the prospective candidates for President of the United States pay attention to public opinion research, they should be careful about interpreting the polls on global climate change. They might get the mistaken impression that voters don't care.
This week, we secured an important victory for public health when a federal court approved a timeline and framework for protecting Americans from an e...
Many immigrants don't just bring their luggage with them when they come to America's shores. They also bring their determination -- and, yes, their dreams. It is the power of these dreams that will help America grow and prosper in the face of the endless challenges and opportunities our future holds.
Today, the Earth got a little hotter, and a litte more crowded. @@ Climate Change, The Elevator Pitch: Climatologist Simon Donner ...
This may feel as if I've asked you to suck on a lemon, but find a way, anyway, that you can to feel better about your boss. Go on... I challenge you, even though I know you're kicking and screaming with resistance, and you're about to delete this post.
It strikes me that an argument for investment in energy research that originates from visionary American business leaders has a better chance of gaining political traction than an argument for a carbon tax. In today's know-nothing, do-nothing Congress, both could easily fail, but anything called a tax is surely dead on arrival.
How much have you thought about struggle? If you're like most people, you try not to think about it. And yet you think about it a lot, especially about how hard it is and how much you hate it.
I can't believe it, yet I can't not. I hear it with my own ears. I decide to smile at the mystery. I stretch back underneath the shady branches and listen.
The veto is just step one. Now, President Obama needs to move forward and reject Keystone XL once and for all. Pipeline opponents will be working even harder in this home stretch to make sure the [resident follows through and issues a real rejection.
Attempting to make good on its "all of the above" energy strategy, the Obama administration recently floated proposals for oil development that have infuriated members of Congress on both coasts, but for very different reasons.
I recently had the great honor of celebrating the success of LuminAID, a Chicago-based cleantech company that produces solar-powered inflatable lights...
The U.S. Department of the Interior unveiled the first draft rules for offshore oil and gas exploration in the Arctic. If approved, they would -- among other things -- require energy companies to submit safety plans and have a separate backup rig nearby to quickly drill a relief well to handle any blowout.
Algae is everywhere, it grows easily, and it's full of lipids that, when successfully extracted, have the perfect chemical makeup to be transformed into hydrocarbon fuel. The trick, as always, is to do the processing in a cost-effective and cost-efficient way, a goal that has been elusive so far. Enter Nevada-based Algae Systems.
The spirit found in these real-life heroes keep our world from spinning into chaos; they're the good people who believe in the power of the human spirit -- the binding force that holds our humanity together -- and you just may be one of them.
Why is there so much investment and M&A activity in an industry plagued by bankruptcy? The answer is that solar energy is now on a growth path that will make it the energy story of the 21st century. How could bankruptcy lead to such fantastic growth? I say it all started with Solyndra.
It's too early to say we've hit a tipping point, but when big players from big tech to big oil all start to move, it certainly feels like perhaps the times are a changin'.
