As I have said before, the GOP position on climate is unstable, both intellectually and politically. You can`t credibly deny the science at this point, but if you accept it, "do nothing about it" is an incoherent response. They`ve only gotten ...

The most attention-grabbing event during the week of the U.N. Climate Summit was the People`s Climate March, of course. But the second most attention-grabbing event was perhaps the Divest-Invest coalition’s announcement that at least 656 ...

Taxing greenhouse gases is a policy that deserves serious consideration -- the kind of consideration it just isn't getting in the U.S. The approach makes sense in theory and, where it has been tried, has worked in practice. The record ...

Less than two weeks have passed and yet it isn’t too early to say it: the People’s Climate March changed the social map—many maps, in fact, since hundreds of smaller marches took place in 162 countries. That march in New York City, spectacular as ...

We`re all familiar with climate deniers - the politicians who proudly declare that 97 percent of climate scientists are wrong, and human carbon emissions aren`t driving up global temperatures to a potentially catastrophic degree. Opposing them ...

With the boom in shale gas opened up by fracking, there’s been a lot more talk about natural gas as a “bridge fuel,” an energy source that could wean us off coal and smooth a transition to renewable energy. President Obama brought up this “bridge ...
