How about a video in which a melting iceberg collapses into the sea as a Koch narrative drones "global warming is a natural phenomenon. There is no human-induced climate change. They Are Koch."
When I met the biologist Gyongyi Mangel in 1990, her enthusiasm was contagious. So much was going on in Hungarian civil society that it was hard to keep track of all the new initiatives. She was passionate about connecting issues and it was hard not to get caught up in her can-do spirit.
Many Republican officials harbor a rebellious stance towards the federal government that they were elected to serve, and whose authority they are supposed to uphold.
They walk among us--those agents of change--but sometimes, we just need to be reminded of who they are, especially in an era where the media remain...
Im not asking you to give up these stereotypes. If you did, you'd be lucky to make it through the next week alive. What I am asking of you is to, please, just be mindful of them.
Ryszard Zoltaniecki is a sociologist who has also worked in the Polish foreign ministry, where he served as the ambassador to Greece. It was not long into our August 2013 interview in an outdoor café in Warsaw that we began to address larger questions like the European financial crisis. The economic setback, he pointed out, marked the end of an era.
The oil industry and other opponents of a wilderness designation want you to think they have overwhelming support of the native peoples residing in ANWR's vicinity. Not quite. Alaskan natives' spiritual affinity to their heritage and reluctance to totally discard a unique, deeply rooted lifestyle still have some staying power against cold, hard cash.
In celebration of World Wildlife Day, let us remember that wild animals have made us who we are. They are essential to our foundation, to our very existence. Wild animals keep our world alive. Without them, there is no us.
Most of the time in life we take for granted that something vast and mysterious is playing out all around us. Some call it nature. For the great natur...
To be fair, Jindal is no different from a long line of Louisiana politicians who have greased the skids for oil industry activity. But those politicians were not angling to become president of the United States. Jindal is. Could the governor be trusted to give a national constituency a better deal than he gave his own state's citizenry in relation to the oil industry?
When I first met Zoltan Illes in 1990, he was 29 years old and in his first month as the youngest state secretary in modern Hungarian history, working in the ministry of environment. He granted me quite a long interview and was unusually frank not only about the environmental situation in the country but also about the challenges he faced in his own position.
f one brother has already finished his bath and left the water in the tub, another brother will get in and wash anyway. And while we're on the subject, I'll admit that their daddy and I only have time for showers every two or three days.
A growing, multi-denominational religious movement is placing environmental protection at the center of its teaching and practice.
House Speaker John Boehner has proudly announced that Pope Francis will address a joint session of Congress in September during the Holy Father's visit to the United States. But Boehner, Catholic though he is, should be careful of what he wishes for.
Sometimes the sky doesn't fall. It lifts. Acting on climate change is reaping incredible benefits for California. Ultimately, none of the AB 32 dooms-day scenarios came true. Now, more than ever, we should not buy into conservatives' Chicken Little politics on environmental policy. They were wrong in the past and they are wrong now.
To grow aromatics, strawberries, or radishes you only need a window and a window box. If you have a balcony, a yard, or, even better, a terrace or a piece of land, you can grow any of the 16,000 marketed varieties of these plants.
