Climate science can be overwhelming. Here’s your easy-to-share highlight reel.
FOODS OF THE FUTURE

Climate change continues to put our food supply at risk, with some foods particularly vulnerable. So what will we be able to eat in 30 years?

IT’S GETTING HOTTER IN HERE

We already knew greenhouse gasses are trapping heat in the atmosphere, but it turns out they are trapping nearly 50% more heat than they did 30 years ago.

MICROPLASTICS, MAJOR PROBLEM

Microplastics aren’t just becoming an unfortunate part of our lives, but they’re also now part of our diet. See how dangerous microplastics are taking over the planet.

CLIMATE FIGHTERS

Electric vehicles are on fire these days and the Los Angeles Fire Department is the proud owner of America’s first, all-electric fire truck!

TOO HOT

Climate change is making heat waves 30x more likely in India and Pakistan, so what happens when a region that’s already baking gets even hotter?

MY CHEMICAL DIET

Even if your diet consists of healthy, climate-friendly foods, the plastic packaging it comes in may be poisoning you. See what this new study found.

A CHILLING REALITY

Is your fridge running? If so, you might want to go catch it. New data has revealed that the average fridge in American households consumes more electricity than the average person in some countries.

HOLDING OUR BREATH

And the data on air pollution just keeps coming. According to a new study, there has been a 50% increase in premature deaths due to air pollution in the last century.

TAKING EXXON TO COURT

The state of Massachusetts has put oil giant Exxon on trial over accusations of the company lying and covering up their role in the climate crisis.

SAYING THE QUIET PART OUT LOUD

The head of HSBC’s responsible investing was suspended after he dismissed the risks of climate change in a major speech. But the global bank had apparently approved his remarks beforehand, and only took action once there was major backlash.

CRANK THE HEAT(R)

America could electrify its energy system 20 years sooner if the Congress passes a new proposal. The HEATR Act would encourage manufacturers to supply heat pumps to consumers, saving them billions of dollars and helping to save our planet from irreversible collapse.

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GARBAGE

Sustainable development goals have allowed us to track progress in mitigating climate change — so why are more than 100 scientists, teachers, and field experts urging the UN to scrap them?

INVEST NOT OFFSET (PART 2)

In this second part of his ‘Beyond Offsetting’ blog series, Karl Burkart encourages an alternative “carbon philanthropy” as a way to move away from carbon offsets.

CHROME CRIME

A new report from environmental groups finds that the world’s biggest companies such as Google have been fueling, and continue to fuel, climate catastrophe … with their outside cash.

A PARTICIPATION TROPHY

The U.S. has lofty renewable goals, but on a per capita basis, it’s falling behind. So what nations are leading the race?

DEATHS OF DESPAIR

Climate angst and feelings of impending doom found among younger generations may explain a disheartening rise in suicide rates. And this may be just the beginning.
