The EPA has found, based on the scientific evidence (everyone from academics to strategic planners at the Pentagon agrees on this), that CO2 output is hazardous and needs to be regulated. Senator Murkowski wants to strip the EPA of authority to do that, saying it’s SOOO important that Congress needs to handle it. But is that really what’s going on? We take a look at the reality behind the hype.

The Washington Independent reports that Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) won’t support his own climate bill, that he’s spent months developing with John Kerry (D-MA) and Joe Lieberman (?-CT).
Why not? He says it’s because it’s too restrictive on drilling.
Will his opposition break the Climate Bill? Or light a fire under Democrats who have delayed moving on the bill for months?
It’s a glorious summer weekend, and folks all over are firing up their grills. But before you shop – today is World Environment Day, so maybe you should think twice about what you’re putting on the BBQ, especially after the devastation of the BP Gulf oil disaster.
Beef is, simply, the worst thing you can eat – especially mainstream store-bought beef that comes straight off a factory farm feedlot. Read on to learn why…
In honor of World Environment Day, the UN sponsored a blogging competition. The winner: Tuesday Phillips of Ecolutionist.com. Her message: Even in a world teeming with 6 billion people, individual action makes a difference. So do it!
How bad could it get? Computer simulations show oil from the BP Gulf oil spill breaking out of the Caribbean and racing up the Atlantic coast, where it could potentially foul beaches from Florida to Maine.
Hi. My name is Jeremy Bloom, and I’ll be your new editor here at Red Green And Blue.
We’ll be officially re-launching later this month, but I wanted to open things up and get started. Get to know each other a bit. Start the conversation flowing. And of course, talk about the biggest environmental story of the decade.
How many of us now hate the world’s klutziest big oil company? Pollster Rasmussen tells us just how badly BP is doing in the court of public opinion…
The American Life League has a new campaign launching this weekend to try to convince women not to use the birth control pill. For “Protest the Pill Day 2010″ on Saturday, June 5, they’re pushing the theory that the pill is bad for women and other living things.
(Originally appeared at TenthMil.com) Coral reefs are among the most productive ecosystems in the ocean, harboring thousands of species from plankton all the way up to fish like the grouper and snapper. Covering less than a quarter of a percent of the ocean’s surface, coral reefs support twenty-five percent of all marine life! Coral reefs also […]
(Originally appeared at TenthMil.com) A new type of dead zone is growing off our coasts – low-oxygen regions that kill fish. “In some spots off Washington state and Oregon , the almost complete absence of oxygen has left piles of Dungeness crab carcasses littering the ocean floor, killed off 25-year-old sea stars, crippled colonies of […]
When last weekend’s Chilean earthquake sent people across the Pacific rim scrambling to deal with the risk of a tsunami, there was an added danger. It was a “King Tide” – the location of the sun and the moon meant their gravitational pull was at its maximum. That, combined with the warmth of the ocean water […]
At the Canada/Norway Olympic hockey game this week, the Pure Salmon Campaign was out in force, telling people “No Way Norway”. It’s part of their Global Week of Action on the problem of farmed salmon. Why Norway? Because Norwegian companies control most of the world’s salmon farms. The Pure Salmon Campaign wants those farms removed from […]
How do we undo the mistakes of the past hundred, thousand, and ten thousand years? You can’t just wave a magic wand; you have to bring people together, get them to put aside their personal interests (at least a little bit) and start working for the common good. That’s what happened this month in the […]
After criticism for not talking enough about renewables in his SOTU speech, President Obama’s new budget shows us the money – according to a White House statement, more than $6 billion. But is it enough? You’d think that with a total of $3.8 trillion on the table, a few more crumbs could have been tossed toward energy […]
Okay. President Obama talked about jobs, about energy, about jobs, about climate, and about jobs. Did we mention jobs? As President, it’s not his job to make everybody happy. But it helps if he wins over more than 51 percent. Some folks were definitely happy. Steven Cohen, Executive Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia […]
