Reading Time: 9 minutes Second excerpt from Horsemen of the Apocalypse: The Men Who are Destroying Life on Earth and What It Means for Our Children
Reading Time: 13 minutes Journalist and climate expert Andrew Revkin brings some light to a great deal of heat.
Reading Time: 1 minute In an effort to combat the effects of rising sea levels, the city of Norfolk is spending $1 billion on essential infrastructure improvements. Is the Virginia community a microcosm of things to come?
Reading Time: 1 minute Most humans will not experience the full effects of climate change for some time. But higher sea levels are already forcing the inhabitants of tiny Pacific islands from their homes.
Reading Time: 23 minutes In Canada, 2000 scientists, and decades of research were dumped. In this comprehensive, alarming essay, Peter Dale Scott warns that, unopposed, the Koch brothers, who are heavily invested in the Albertan tar sands, could do the same thing to science in America.
Reading Time: 2 minutes This year is the hottest year on record since 1880 globally. What’s going on with our temperatures?
Reading Time: 8 minutes Thanksgiving is upon us, and, in many places, so is the frigid weather. But don’t wish for warmer temperatures—not if you care about the survival of life on earth.
Reading Time: 4 minutes Thanks to increased travel, and possibly global warming, mosquitoes are bringing more diseases from the tropics to North America. One in particular—dengue fever—can be deadly.
Reading Time: 4 minutes In the third installment of our three-part look at underreported aspects of Climate Chaos, we cover a Washington conference which revealed terrifying new dimensions of the problem…but couldn’t quite get around to causes and cures.
Reading Time: 1 minute Climate change is hardly funny, but some activists see poking fun as part of their message.
Reading Time: 7 minutes You don’t need to go to the North Pole to see evidence of climate change and rising seas. Just go to Florida.
Reading Time: 1 minute This climate change item, when we first ran it in February, generated….pardon the expression…heated debate. Now, with yet another freakish weather event in Hurricane Sandy, we thought we’d put it out there again.
Reading Time: 1 minute Friends don’t let friends continue to believe there’s no climate change when they could simply show them Chasing Ice. This is not only the most powerful visual evidence of global catastrophe, it’s also one of the most disarmingly beautiful and riveting films you may ever see. Here’s a preview: opens around the US in November.
Reading Time: 1 minute More and more people angrily declare Climate Change a fraudulent concept. Apparently, all environmental groups and scientists are in cahoots….
Reading Time: 18 minutes For the first time in 30 years, the United States has just okayed new nuclear reactors. Though this comes with the still unfolding Fukushima disaster as a backdrop, we’re being told everything is under control. It is—damage control.
Reading Time: 2 minutes ‘Ground-breaking’ scientific research could unleash the huge potential of aquatic biomass in creating a sustainable energy supply.
Reading Time: 3 minutes Do we listen to “Lord Monckton” on climate change because he knows what he’s talking about, or because of his title? And what’s that title about, anyway?
Reading Time: 2 minutes With its nuclear disaster, Japan learned a hard lesson about finding less risky, more creative energy solutions. But this overpopulated island nation was already exploring some bold new directions. Like the most advanced eco-town in the world.
Reading Time: 4 minutes The other day, USA Today ran an article reporting that 2010 had tied 2005 as the warmest year since record-keeping began in 1880. That’s disturbing data, or course. But what really caught my eye was who they chose to question the significance of the news: a climatologist with….the Cato Institute.

Reading Time: 2 minutes The New York Times has a surprisingly direct, no-hedging, exposé of oil industry shenanigans designed to block climate change legislation.
