Is Europe superior on sustainable business?

Comments Off on Is Europe superior on sustainable business?

With the future of the European Union at the top of the headlines these days, I’ve been thinking about the differences between European and American companies on sustainability.My own experiences make me think Europe is way ahead of the United States when it comes to sustainable business. Working for McDonald’s, I quite often dipped into Europe from my Chicago base. I heard even crusty cab drivers pontificate about climate change and bemoaned, even publicly, that the sustainability IQ of Americans was 1 on a scale of 1 to 10, compared with Europeans at 10.

Comments Off on Jeff Goldblum hilariously mocks Big Pollution in this Funny or Die video

Let’s face it. Talking about climate change and the Clean Power Plan is boring. It’s boring, technical, nerdy and did we mention, boring. But now, in a collaborative effort with the League of Conservation Voters , Funny or Die brings you Jeff Goldblum explaining it all to “cartoonishly evil” fossil fuel executives — in his trademark quick and dry way. In the video, executives gather to try and find a tobacco industry-like fix to their problems. The terms “nincompoops” and “garbage people” are evoked before Goldblum heads off to help out Volkswagen . Check out the video (and then sign the serious petition to help stop big polluters).

PETITION: Tell presidential candidates to stop lying about climate change!

Comments Off on PETITION: Tell presidential candidates to stop lying about climate change!

In 2016, the American people will select a new president , and that person will face some of the most difficult challenges this world has ever seen. Climate change and the human impact on it are arguably the biggest problems the next president will have to tackle. With the frenzied season of political promises ahead will come a barrage of media coverage of presidential hopefuls and their proposed policies. Newly-announced presidential candidate Ted Cruz is well known for rejecting climate change, saying “global warming alarmists are the equivalent of the flat-Earthers.” Other candidates are likely to pick and choose which scientific facts they wish to believe as well, but that doesn’t mean the media has to relay their lies without keeping them in check. This new petition is targeted at major media outlets, in the hopes that journalists will hold political candidates accountable for their climate change lies. Can you imagine media coverage that included a fair and balanced reporting of scientific facts? Sign the petition today and send a message to presidential candidates that it’s time to get real about the things they say about climate change in our fragile world.
