We are still not at a mitigation level to avoid 1.5ºC or even 2ºC temperature rise, but of course we hope to get there before runaway climate change destroys us. Part of what we can do is to be prepared for extreme climate events. They can happen to anyone, and there is no way to know who that will be and when

When you look at your finances and see that you're upside down in your current car, that your credit is shot to hell, or that you can't get into a car payment right now (or all of the above), you can't simply wish your way out of that hole, even if you wish really, really hard. Continuing to drive a gas vehicle in that situation doesn't make you a bad person or a sinner

US conservative concerns about the Green New Deal are odd. Each 'bad' section is tied to the New Deal, climate change, real problems, and sensible plans

Prince EA is someone I have a lot of admiration for because his messages are positive and empowering. The message of his video below isn't conveying his sorrow for our deeds to the next generation, but is a voice that is demanding that we wake up while we still have time to do something

This was a very detailed article by Wade Anderson who wanted to highlight how the Musks have embraced the challenge of climate change. With the help and support of his friend, Jim Lehrman, Wade breaks down the three deadly C's that contribute to climate change: Cars, cattle, and chainshows and explains how the Musks have taken on these challenges. Many people see the challenge of climate change as an obstacle that they can do nothing to stop or as something that isn't happening. The issue is real. The Musks and many others are doing something

Salvatore Pais, of the US Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD), claims to have invented a compact fusion reactor. With a size of between 0.3 and 2 meters (1 foot to 6.5 feet), the patent claims that the device could generate between a gigawatt and a terawatt, while needing far less energy input than it produces

Since women are the primary users of energy, they are disproportionately vulnerable to climate change impacts. Energy policies failing to reach women are thus exacerbating potential climate risks for them. In addition, gender inequalities limit women’s access to finance streams, information or training for using sustainable energy sources. Taking a gender lens approach is thus crucial for minimizing such bias and ensuring equal access to energy for both women and men

Global warming and climate change get a lot of attention -- well, not in the mainstream media, but among niche media outlets like CleanTechnica. However, whether in the mainstream media or in niche publications, some of the big challenges of a quickly changing climate are not often highlighted, and I'm quite confident that most people haven't considered them at all

The fact that a 16-year-old schoolgirl is the face of a new global movement is both a cause for celebration and a source of consternation. We should celebrate Greta Thunberg for having the courage and tenacity to not only start a movement, but the strength to continually build and grow it. We should be concerned that in the light of all we know about climate change, we still need a global campaign of citizen-led activism to force politicians and world leaders to take urgent and essential action
