The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced last week that carbon dioxide concentrations at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii surpassed the milestone 400 parts per million for a sustained period.
New Yorkers worried about fracking have been looking at the impact it has had on their neighbors in Pennsylvania. Increasingly, they don't like what they see there.
Dozens of fracking waste injection-caused earthquakes have occurred in Faulkner County, with 12 small quakes in a five-day period back in October 2010, another ten quakes in a single day in November 2010 and a sizeable 4.7 magnitude quake shaking things up in February 2011.
It's no surprise an administration as tied to Wall Street as this one is taking the side of the financial sector. But it's even worse: If the administration has its way, neither Congress nor any government official, elected or appointed, would have any say in the matter.
By 2050, California & Southwest Could Have 100% Dry Years NASA Says, reports Climate Progress, according to a NASA analysis, which basically lays out ...
Some are calling it "liberal indoctrinationm" others calling it "censorship," a teacher has resigned, and what started out as a simple presentation by 13-year-old Xiuhtezcatl and his 9-year-old brother Itzcuauhtl has turned into a national story.
The well production data that Powers picked through on a state-by-state basis demonstrates a "drilling treadmill." That means each time an area is fracked, after the frackers find the "sweet spot," that area yields diminishing returns on gas production on a monthly and annual basis.
Politicians use accounting tricks to make us think their paltry efforts are worth a damn. For one, they dilute the annual impact of climate pollution by spreading it over 100 years. If we don't make serious progress within the decade, however, what we do afterward will be moot.
A natural gas pipeline from New Jersey to New York: sane or insane? It could be a marriage made in economic heaven.
US Gets Weather Whiplash With Climate Change notes Andrew Freedman at Climate Central. Warming air and oceans mean more moisture in the air, and the ...
Carbon dioxide levels in excess of 400 parts per million have already been recorded at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii, but they tend to fluctuate hourly. The milestone is significant because it illustrates how dramatically humans have altered the atmosphere in a few generations, says Mother Nature Network.
As their cancers developed, the victims of atomic testing and nuclear weapons development got a name: downwinders. Now, a new generation of downwinders is getting sick as an emerging industry pushes the next wonder technology -- in this case, high-volume hydraulic fracturing.
Solar Grew 5x Faster Than Rest of US Economy in 2012, reports Joe Romm at Climate Progress, adding 14,000 new jobs in California, Arizona, New Jersey ...
As discussions stall in Springfield, the interests of Illinoisans are left flapping in the wind, with entire communities completely and unacceptably exposed to the array of well known risks associated with the controversial oil and gas extraction technique.
We must not allow large-scale oil and gas field development via fracking to pollute and deplete park watersheds, foul park air quality, fragment habitat for park wildlife, and create excessive industrial sound, and light pollution near our parks.
Over the last five years, our country has taken great steps toward enhancing our energy security. How? By using new technology developed by American companies that offers better access to our plentiful resources.
