Pipeline companies like Transcanada, Enbridge, Shell and Kinder Morgan remind me of guys who just won't take no for an answer. They're going to keep coming back no matter what we tell them, unless we cut them off for good.

California has the Million Solar Rooftops Initiative, and recently Governor Jerry Brown has set a new goal to power three million homes via rooftop solar. Now let's think bigger. Why not expand this vision to 60 million U.S. solar roofs?

Since Earthrise was taken we've been so busy warming our world that it now looks radically different from space. We've put so much carbon into the atmosphere that today's astronauts are looking at a different planet.

Climate Change and the American Political Agenda

Climate has never been an easy issue for the American political system. We do much better with problems that have a geographic home, can be seen and felt, and have an immediate visible impact.

In talking recently with climate expert Michael Mann, I realized that our conversation was nothing short of a roundabout tour in an effort to identify just how the well-funded climate denial machine has become a Catch-22 phenomenon.

Our scientific undersanding of global warming has come so far, but many in the media are pretending it is 1980 and that we are just getting started.

As individuals, there is a limit to what we can do in our own lives, but we can and should call for government action and ask our leaders to stand up to those who would deny climate change or undermine efforts to move forward with clean energy.

You lost the audience -- and where you risk our economy and our kids -- saying "we'll adapt" to climate change, which is "an engineering problem, and it has engineering solutions." That answer, and the attitude behind it, threatens us all and is a giant business mistake.

Stephen Kretzmann

There is likely more than $1 trilion annually provided for the production and consumption of oil, gas, and coal. That's a lot of money to be wasting and hiding, and it could be put to far better use for education, hunger, poverty, renewable energy, and many many other uses.
