Is Climate Change Reversible? Can Regenerative Agriculture Farming Solve the Climate Crisis?

Solar is a completely renewable and wildly abundant resource that slashes a household's carbon emissions. And it's something we can feel good about. Ever heard of a catastrophic solar spill? An asthma attack because of a solar panel? A military operation defending our access to the sun? Nope.

The move from fossil fuels to renewables is coming; the only question is how quickly we make the transition. Just as we transitioned from animals pulling plows on farms to tractors doing similar work, we will eventually move from fossil fuels to renewables.

Landmark though the US-Chinese bilateral agreement may be, it is still much more about domestic Chinese priorities than trans-Pacific good will.

The Big Climate Deal: What It Is, and What It Isn't

Bill McKibben

This comes seven weeks after by far the largest global climate demonstrations in history, and amidst ongoing unrest in China about the filthy air in its cities. It isn't, in other words, a reason to slack off a bit in the ongoing fight for a livable climate, a fight our civilizations are in great danger of losing. If we want this to be a start, and not a finish, we've got to build even bigger and more powerful movements that push the successors of these gentlemen to meet what science demands. Today's an achievement for everyone who's held a banner, signed a petition, and gone to jail -- and a call for many more to join us going forward!

Fossil Fuel Companies Must Evolve or Perish

Fossil fuel companies -- much like your stubborn, elderly relative that refuses to change his eating habits despite the doctor's warnings of a heart attack -- have a choice to make. They can either begin to pivot out of high-cost, high-polluting projects to the clean energy sources that will fuel our future, or they can wait until it's too late.
