Belonging to Solarize Harrisonburg made our transition to solar both efficient and painless. Making the switch is a natural, sun-powered high. What could be better than simultaneously saving money, helping stabilize the climate, and supporting community?

Ridley's Wall Street Journal Op-Ed Fixates on the Past and Ignores the Present to Try and Predict the Future

Climate Nexus | Posted 03.15.2015 | Green
Climate Nexus

Ridley's assertion that because fossil fuels provided the energy for development in the past means they should keep investing in fossil fuel infrastructure is like saying that developing countries should build punch-card computers for their technological needs.

Welcome to the asylum! I'm talking, of course, about the world Big Oil spent big bucks creating. You know, the one in which the obvious -- climate change -- is doubted and denied, and in which the new Republican Congress is actively opposed to doing anything about it.

Benjamin Franta | Posted 03.06.2015 | Green
Benjamin Franta

Even if a person is reluctant to engage in disruptive forms of protest in general, the Harvard Corporation's method of deciding and defending its fossil fuel investment policy encourages such protests, because the Harvard Corporation's method is unresponsive to attempts from the Harvard community at debate and reasoned persuasion.
