World Leaders Make Both Moral And Practical Progress In The Debate On Climate Change This Week

Mark this week down as the one that truly shifted the climate conversation in the nation's capital. It was a week where Hillary Clinton's announcement that she opposes the Keystone XL pipeline played fourth fiddle -- and a potential government shutdown was barely even in the band -- climate change was the one unifying theme connecting the week's top stories.  First, Pope Francis called......read more

Adrian Grenier on Going Green: It's a Work in Progress

"To me, this lifestyle is a work in progress, it requires constant participation and really that's the key," the Entourage actor recently told E! News. "I think being passive or ignorant is sort of what's gotten us into this mess in the first place."...read more

This is what roughly one degree of global temperature rise–the current state of the climate–looked like in 2017: Wildfires torched Southern California after fire season should have ended. Earlier in the year, another large fire started in Greenland, a country mostly covered in ice.

Stop corporate polluters from blocking clean energy progress in California. Vote NO on Prop. 23!

With limited progress on CO2 emissions, a group of nations turn to other pollutants

We have long known that carbon dioxide is not the only pollutant that causes climate change. But, to date, the global effort to address global warming has largely centered on that grandaddy of greenhouse gases -- with next to no meaningful progress. Now, the climate war is opening a second front. Last week, the the United States and five other countries announced a new initiative to......read more

U.S. Criticized at Durban Climate Conference

read
Major environmental groups say America may be "major obstacle to progress"

My, what a difference three years makes. In November 2008, then president-elect Barack Obama spoke to a conference of U.S. governors, saying in no uncertain terms that the U.S. was ready to join the world in the fight against global warming. Now, three days into COP17 in Durban, the U.S. is being lambasted by negotiators and eco-advocates for stonewalling progress on climate change.  In a......read more

Green Development Hampered by Nimbyism

Eco projects face opposition in progressive hotspots from Brooklyn to Berkeley.

If we were asked to name the top two strongholds of eco-consciousness in America, we'd probably say Brooklyn on the east coast and Berkeley on the west. Hell, we even gave Brooklyn it's own web series. But not everyone in these liberal bastions is down for the greater environmental good. When it comes to green development, self interest runs rampant. In Park Slope, Brooklyn, a new bike lane......read more
