A hybrid car is a pretty good choice, but making and disposing of the batteries in electric and hybrid cars results in serious impacts on the environment. They require special chemicals and result in nasty waste. Again, there is always a price to pay.

We live in a world where most people act after its too late. We look at the mental health of a teenager compelled to shoot kindergarteners after the tragedy. We vow to help a country struggling with disease after millions have died and the disease spreads closer to home.

The Pope Smokes Out Congress On Climate Change

Michael Winship | Posted 09.23.2015 | Politics
Michael Winship

The funniest line of the last few days came from Arizona Republican Congressman Paul Gosar. Resentful that Pope Francis might blaspheme the sacred chamber of the World's Greatest Deliberative Body with some inconvenient truth about global warming, Gosar announced he would boycott the Holy Father's visit to Capitol Hill. You can argue that a joint session of Congress is an inappropriate speaking venue for a world religious leader, violation of church and state and so forth. And many of us have big, big issues with the Roman Catholic Church. But frankly this is no time for business -- or politics -- as usual.

Not too many months ago, I spent eight days traveling through Kenya. It was my first visit to the country, and because of experiences like these 10 adventures--from a walking safari in an under-the-radar conservancy in the Mara to breakfast with wildlife in The Samburu National Reserve and an island retreat off the southeast coast--I know it's far from my last.

For thousands of years we have grown -- in population, in energy consumption and in economic output. Today we are beginning to realize that this kind of growth is no longer possible, nor even desirable; that it can be maintained only at greater cost to human beings and the planet.

Let me share with you something amazing: the drops of the U.S. and other stock markets have been occurring at the end of the Sabbatical year. In the Jewish calendar, the year ends in September, and the Sabbatical year (in Hebrew 'Shmita') is a once in seven year rest observed by some Jews in Israel based on teachings of the Bible.

Perhaps after this record breaking hot summer we will set a new normal for climate change coverage as well. To date, we have not seen a majority of serious environmental developments covered regularly and with sufficient context and depth on the evening news or on any recurring talk shows.
