In an interview with Thomas L. Friedman scheduled to air as part of the final episode of "Years of Living Dangerously," President Barack Obama revealed that he’s really no different than many of us when it comes to climate deniers.

Climate Deniers Champion Article Rejected by Journal for Failing to Meet Scientific Rigor

Climate Deniers Champion Article Rejected by Journal for Failing to Meet Scientific Rigor
There’s an old proverb that suggests it’s always the lie that gets half way around the world while the truth is still pulling its boots on. This is especially true in the realm of climate science, where deniers are quick to jump on anything that supports their theory (in itself a huge no-no according to scientific principles). The latest: a story in UK's The Times about an article rejected by a science journal for factual errors, but twisted to appear like a deliberate suppression of climate change denial.

Public Relations Nightmare: Why Are Scientists Failing to Wake People Up to Climate Change?

Public Relations Nightmare: Why Are Scientists Failing to Wake People Up to Climate Change?

SC Small Businesses Fight Climate Change to Preserve Disappearing Coastline

SC Small Businesses Fight Climate Change to Preserve Disappearing Coastline
Secretary of State John Kerry needs to talk with U.S. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell. Better yet, he should come see the South Carolina coast firsthand. Even a two- to three-foot rise in sea level will inundate many commercial areas and residential communities and destroy vital infrastructure. And this means we won’t be waiting until the end of the century to see our small-business coastal tourism economy start disappearing. It might be, as some scientists predict, only 30 to 40 years.

NASA Study: 1%'s Greedy Resource Grab Could Trigger End of Civilization Within 15 Years
A new study backed by NASA warns that, much like the Romans and Mayans before us, our elite power brokers may be driving us towards a cliff as the 1% vacuums up wealth and natural resources. Although the study is largely theoretical, the new report is just one of many warning that the convergence of food, water and energy crises could create a "perfect storm" within 15 years.

Blockturnal Emission: Supreme Court to Hear Case on EPA's Authority to Regulate Power Plants and Factories

Blockturnal Emission: Supreme Court to Hear Case on EPA's Authority to Regulate Power Plants and Factories
The Supreme Court has agreed to make a decision on President Obama's executive actions regarding emissions regulations. The high court will review a lower court's upholding of the EPA's ability to regulate greenhouse gases in power plants and factories. The EPA's authority, granted under the Clean Air Act, is an effort to stave off climate catastrophe and its upheaval would put Congress in charge of figuring out how to curb dangerous emissions. Because they're real good at getting things done.
