With an administration hostile to science, we owe scientists our protection — particularly those working on climate change, an issue too important to cede to politics.
When a massive cruise ship sailed through the Northwest Passage earlier this year, it said a great deal about climate change, and about humanity.
Children across the US are mounting multiple cases against federal and state agencies, demanding that they take action on climate change. It’s working.
Beaches around the world are in a steady state of erosion, and one of the most immediate costs for people is the loss of oceanfront homes, whether located on the beach or on cliffs that tower over it. These losses are economically catastrophic, and the cost of dealing with them is going to increase in […]
Chess pieces are shifting into position on the board of campaign rhetoric. We already know that the knights of sexism will be darting here and there across the board, but that isn’t the entirety of the arsenal.
