NASA Study: 1%'s Greedy Resource Grab Could Trigger End of Civilization Within 15 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.

Surprise! Lawmakers Who Skipped Out on #Up4Climate All Nighter Raked in Millions from Oil Industry

 Surprise! Lawmakers Who Skipped Out on #Up4Climate All Nighter Raked in Millions from Oil Industry
On Sunday, March 2, 398 people were arrested in front of the White House to demand President Obama reject the Keystone pipeline. And less than two weeks later, nearly a third of the U.S. Senate stayed up all night to talk about the necessity to take action on climate change. The #Up4Climate hashtag was a top nationally-trending topic on Twitter during the event. This is proof that the climate movement is making historic ground, and that climate activism works.

11th Hour Address: Dems Pull All-Nighter in Senate Discussing Climate Change

11th Hour Address: Dems Pull All-Nighter in Senate Discussing Climate Change
Democratic senators clocked an all-nighter, working in shifts into Tuesday morning to warn of devastation from climate change and the danger of inaction. Addressing a nearly empty chamber and visitor gallery, more than two dozen speakers agreed with each other about the need to act on climate change. Naysayers — Republicans — largely stayed away, arguing hours earlier that regulation would cost Americans jobs in a sluggish economy.

36% of ND Fracked Gas Was Flared Off as Waste in December

36% of ND Fracked Gas Was Flared Off as Waste in December
According to testimony in front of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee, 36 percent of the gas by-product from oil obtained via fracking in North Dakota's Bakken Shale basin was flared off as waste during a brutally cold midwest winter with no end in sight. The reason for this unnecessary waste? Profits.

CNBC: Climate Change is Witchcraft!

CNBC: Climate Change is Witchcraft!
Oogity boogity boo. Even as science shows that climate change is very real, something we can even see with our own eyes as the ice around both poles melts rapidly, some people still can't get over the mystical new nature created by the evil Wizard Global Warming.

In Push For Nuclear Power, Climate Change Concerns Overlooked

In Push For Nuclear Power, Climate Change Concerns Overlooked
Researchers recently concluded that a small six-foot-high miniature tsunami that hit near a New Jersey nuclear power plant this summer was not the result of a seismic event (as tsunamis usually are). Instead, the researchers concluded that the surge was caused by a sudden atmospheric pressure change. Climate change will cause more destructive and seemingly freakish events like this. Emergency planners need to plan for them — especially when the risks are high as is the case with nuclear plants.

Hottest November Ever: Earth Records 345th Straight Month of Above-Average Temperatures

Hottest November Ever: Earth Records 345th Straight Month of Above-Average Temperatures
Government scientists reported Tuesday that last month set a heat record. They say it was the warmest November on record, across Earth, since record-keeping began in 1880. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says average global temperature, for water and land surfaces combined, was 56.6 degrees (13.7 Celsius). That's 1.4 degrees (0.78 degrees Celsius) above the 20th century average.

International Coal Summit's Glorious Pipe Dream of Carbon Capture and Storage

International Coal Summit's Glorious Pipe Dream of Carbon Capture and Storage
A new study released today at the UN climate conference underway in Warsaw, Poland, finds that new coal plants cannot be built if we are to keep global warming below the 2° Celsius threshold. That is, unless the coal industry can deploy commercial-scale carbon capture and storage. That is, in and of itself, a near impossibility.
