Our future pays the price for the fossil fuel industry's irresponsibility; imagine if America shouldered the real price today...

While natural gas could serve as an interim energy source that could among other things help in our vehicle fleet as we transition away from the dirtier C02 emitting fossil fuels of oil & coal and while it can also help provide us energy independence, the natural gas industry must come clean with the American public.  President Obama's inclusion of natural gas as a "clean energy" in his State of the Union is untrue and inappapropriate because the industry is concealing the truth and…

Convinced and Convicted

We're scorching our planet. I heard it, I believe it, and I'm trying to stop it. But I can't help but feel alone in my battle for the future of our home. But why does it seem like no one else is trying to stop this obvious and eminent disaster?

 

The disbelieving

There is a significant percentage of Americans that don't believe in anthropogenic (human caused) global warming, anywhere from 25-35% depending on the poll. Actually, it took me a while to believe in climate…

No giant national leaps (yet) but still some important progress at year's end on climate and clean energy stewardship.

In 2010, our nation regrettably did not enact meaningful climate legislation, we did not institute a price for emitting carbon dioxide, nor did we enact a national renewable energy~electricity standard -- all of which are critical to our future success and sustainability. But the United States did make some incremental progress which is worth noting, protecting and building on in 2011.

Vital tax incentives were extended for renewable energy development (see the NYTimes story…

If our military can do it so can we...

Yesterday's lead story about the US military converting to renewables is most encouraging and underscores that a renewables revolution is at hand and that making this transormation to pollutoin free power is in our foremost economic, health and national security interest. The aspiring goal of the armed forces is to become 50% renewable by 2020. We should more than applaud this development, we should keep pace by pushing our selves, our workplaces, our communities, our municipilaties, our…
