What’s going on in Washington these days? Duh, debt ceiling negotiations, right? Fortunately, that’s not all… there is still legislation in the works that addresses other issues beyond government spending.

We often take the most basic and everyday things for granted. Water is no exception. We expect it to be available when we turn the sink on and think nothing of where that water has been or how it’s traveled to our faucet. However, there’s way more to water than you think.
Check this out. Here are all the graphs you could possibly need to demonstrate the current science of global climate change, all in one location. Scott A. Mandia, Professor of Physical Sciences at Suffolk County Community College, Long Island, NY, has compiled a collection of graphs to support global warming data on Climate Progress.

That goes for environmental issues, political ones, cultural ones and any other kinds of ones. Sometimes it just seems hopeless to me. Or at least very fatiguing.

Sound familiar? Unless you’ve had your head stuck in the sand for the past couple of months, you’ve heard variations on this statement from both Barack Obama and John McCain… countless times. High gas and utility prices have collided with a stagnant economy, and energy issues (and the environmental issues accompanying them) have come to […]
This post is by Fred Krupp, President of the Environmental Defense Fund. Earth: The Sequel tells the story of an exciting race that is just beginning — the race to develop low-carbon energy in time to turn our greatest environmental crisis into our greatest economic opportunity. Many people have expressed surprise that I’d write a […]
