Senators Not Backing Green New Deal Received On Average 7 Times As Much Fossil Fuel Cash : politics
"Fossil fuel donations overwhelmingly favor Republicans, who received nearly $47 million of the $52.3 million the oil and gas industry gave out in campaign contributions to current senators.

And coincidentally US Republicans have the highest rate of climate change denial in the world. Seems too convenient."

None of the world’s top industries would be profitable if they paid for the natural capital they use | Grist
"For instance, industrial processes can put pollutants in the air that increase public health costs, but the public, not the polluting businesses, picks up the tab. In this way, businesses privatize profits and publicize costs."

(6) Timeline Photos - Occupy Democrats
A photo of a smoke-filled NYC skyline in 1973 and the same crystal-clear skyline today. With a caption: 'In case you think environmental regulations aren't necessary.' "Woah! Think Beijing is smog-choked? Well NYC used to be just as bad. Many Americans have forgotten just how smoggy many of our cities were until Nixon signed the Clean Air Act in 1970. It took some time to really get off the ground, but its positive effects today are crystal clear. So why then do the Koch brothers and the Republican Tea Party want to take us back to a time before sensible air pollution controls?"

It's all a hoax - Album on Imgur
A great way of presenting to reel in those that believe global warming is a hoax. It starts by calling it "Global Hoax" instead of "Global Warming" and then presents each argument for why global warming is a hoax. It slowly destroys each point and shows the real culprit: Greenhouse gasses. ........... See the comments that raise valid points: "downvoting, not because warming is not real, but for shit science. Google global temperature chart 10000 years for a better picture" and "humands are 100% a contributor.. but a graph that starts in 1880 shows nothing..."

A Republican senator on climate change: It's real, we need to fight it. ""It doesn't make sense to argue about how much global warming is caused by man -- whether it's 5% or 50%. The best approach is to have a no-regrets policy." : politics
Make sure to read the first comment by notjabba, starting with: " Lisa Murkowski is one Republican senator who wants to do something about climate change. That first sentence is countered by every sentence that follows it. Murkowski says she wants to 'do something' about climate change, but then she does the opposite of what is needed on every issue..."

Cornstalks Everywhere But Nothing Else, Not Even A Bee : Krulwich Wonders... : NPR
This reminds me of the TED Radio Hour episode where:

"3rd segment (Dan Barber) has a good section about a self-sustaining fish farm in Spain(?) where 20% of the fish are "lost" to flamingoes and other birds. Because that's the way it works in nature..."

Because he was happy that ecological balance has been achieved.. and it's a self-propagating system.. whereas the corn fields in this article have no ecological balance and would collapse without constant human intervention.

EARTH: The Operators' Manual : PBS
Indisputable proof of earth's changing climate and equally indisputable proof of it's human origins. The first 20-30 minutes focuses on proving the above points. The rest is a hopeful voyage exploring viable renewable energy sources. A VERY well done and hopeful documentary. Interestingly enough, the host/scientist is a Republican who says he cannot understand the position of the Republican party on this issue.

Cool Tools: Dr. Bronner's Liquid Castile Soap
"The potent soap is vegetable-oil based (including jojoba, coconut, and hemp oils) that when diluted can be used in a number of different ways. When I spent four months traveling through China it replaced my shampoo, face and body wash, deodorant, laundry detergent, and, when I ran out of it, my toothpaste (but only once as it overwhelmed my mouth). Using it meant I could pack less and lighten my load. I have also brought it camping to clean pots and pans where the use of harsher soaps and detergents would sully sensitive environments."
