While Washington state lawmakers' bold pragmatism promises to help their environment and their economy, the new Congress in Washington, D.C., seems hell-bent on pushing legislation that will strip away our environmental protections, continue to ignore the threats of climate change and keep us addicted to dirty fossil fuels.
From The Great Australian Bight to Lake Macquarie, NSW, the race to destroy sealife to extract more climate disrupting oil and gas has reached a diabolical frenzy.
Because of the likelihood that a large fraction of today's known fossil-fuel reserves will become "stranded," fossil fuels no longer represent safe investments. Thus, continued reliance on fossil fuels is neither safe environmentally nor safe economically.
Today, the Earth got a little hotter, and a little more crowded. OO A "Cheesy Love Story" : The Fun Ad Doritos Doesn't Want You to See...
Here are my predictions for 2015, to make your year rich in returns and light on costly mistakes.
A "Power India" initiative would coordinate bilateral support from agencies such as the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), U.S. Export-Import Bank, and USAID, with the goal of unlocking much needed support for clean energy projects and catalyzing the expansion of beyond-the-grid solar markets to help alleviate energy poverty.
Why should we shell out billions to prop up harmful fossil fuels, when we could instead create thousands of good clean energy jobs that will protect the health and livelihoods of workers and communities?
When Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) took over the reins of the Senate, he wasted little time in choosing the Keystone oil pipeline as the first item for the new Congress. He may be having buyer's remorse.
If India, also asks to equalize emissions with the US and China, it would mean that it has a long way to go. So, I believe, the India-US deal will also be a convenient compromise.
In the modern city, space, as any over zealous estate agent will gleefully tell you, is at a premium.
President Obama's State of the Union focuses on climate change; Republicans' sneaky move to give the Keystone XL pipeline a new name; Yellowstone River pipeline spill spews oil and cancer-causing benzene; PLUS: Yes, Republicans vote climate change is not a hoax -- but there's a catch.
The president obliquely alluded to the Keystone pipeline, which would carry oil from Canadian tar sands to the United States, by noting the need to take a comprehensive look at infrastructure development.
Did you know that coastal activity in Atlantic states -- ranging from fishing, tourism, recreation and more -- supports about 1.4 million jobs and net about $95 billion in gross domestic product every year?
Less than 15 miles from Iowa City, in fact, the extraordinary work of general manager Warren McKenna and the Farmers Electric Cooperative (FEC) has won international acclaim for its role as a national model for solar financing and development.
Public finance for the beyond-the-grid solar sector is important, as tools like loan guarantees de-risk investment and enable private investment to fl...
All eyes are on India this week, as President Obama is set to make an unprecedented second trip to meet with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Advancing cleaner, low-carbon and climate-resilient pathways can create more vibrant economies in both India and the United States. The moment to do it together is in front of them.
