When Winning in Court Won’t Save the Environment: Looking for a Plan “C” (Part 1)

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 10:26:04 +0000

I have been writing a lot lately about the rising number and variety of environmental lawsuits being filed in state and federal courts. The hundreds of active climate-related cases exhibit a wide range of purpose.




Five Revolutions: How Bacteria Created the Biosphere and caused the First Climate Crisis

When Marx was writing, the science of metabolic cycles was in its infancy: an enormous amount has been learned since then, especially in recent decades. To be true to Marx’s method, ecosocialists must, as he did, base our understanding of nature on the best contemporary scientific work.




These States want to Make Planning a Pipeline Protest a Crime

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 12:38:30 +0000

As pipeline protests continue to delay and, sometimes, stop energy projects in their tracks, the fossil fuel industry and Republican lawmakers are looking for new ways to clamp down on environmental protest.




Everything that Rises must Converge

In a time of fall and fragmentation , if you are wise, you do not look for the powerful Ones with their faraway promises and angry rhetoric. What you find yourself searching for is something real, something coherent, something you can count on — your relationship with fabric of things, a certain meaning that comes from the natural world, held instinctively in the forms of creatures and plants.




Great Barrier Reef at ‘Unprecedented’ Risk of Collapse after Major Bleaching Event

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 10:38:55 +0000

(image)

The record-breaking marine heatwave in 2016 across the Great Barrier Reef has left much of the coral ecosystem at an “unprecedented” risk of collapse, research shows. A new study published in Nature finds that the surge in sea temperatures during the 2016 bleaching event led to an immediate and long-lasting die-off of coral.




It’s Springtime in Washington, Time for a Climate Change Update

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 09:58:44 +0000

I thought it helpful to provide a rundown of the remaining legislative days’ events and offer a bit of commentary about what Congress and the White House/executive branch will be doing between now and November. Having some idea of what our elected leaders and representatives are likely to be up to in Capital City should help readers plan what they might want to be up to politically themselves.




Landowners Question If Pipeline Companies Seizing Land to Export Oil and Gas Counts as ‘Public Good’

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 12:21:55 +0000

The Bayou Bridge pipeline will carry oil across southern Louisiana from Lake Charles, near the Texas border, to St. James along the Mississippi River. Rosinski’s home in Arcadia Parish is west of the Atchafalaya Basin, an environmentally sensitive National Heritage Area. Construction there continues despite an ongoing legal challenge against building the pipeline through the basin.




Beyond Sustainability? — We are Living in the Century of Regeneration

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 10:39:50 +0000

The term regenerative development, on the other hand, carries within it a clear aim of regenerating the health and vitality of the nested, scale-linking systems we participate in. At a basic level regeneration also communicates not to use resources that cannot be regenerated, nor to use any resources faster than they can be regenerated.




The Impact of Climate Change on Mental Health is Impossible to Ignore

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 11:13:04 +0000

Overall, the consensus in the scientific literature is that climate change will increase the number of people exposed to extreme events and, therefore, to subsequent psychological problems, such as worry, anxiety, depression, distress, loss, grief, trauma and even suicide.




Reflections on an Extraordinary Time: Perspectives from a 21st-Century College Student

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 10:07:59 +0000

It is, has been, and always will be, harder to care than to be apathetic. Life can be difficult when, as an environmentalist, you truly care about the current and future well-beings of the diversity around you.




You Can’t Talk about Teacher Strikes without Talking about the Fossil Fuel Industry

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 09:12:48 +0000

But beyond illuminating the often dismal conditions under which teachers in this country are often forced to work, the walkouts in Oklahoma and West Virginia illuminate something else — what happens when states prioritize tax breaks for fossil fuel companies over education.
