With Trump and fossil fuel executives in the White House, any shot of powerful and lasting protections for our climate and communities will come from our cities and states. That’s why it’s so troubling that in California, one of the most progressive places in the U.S., current state attorney general Xavier Becerra is failing to stand up to ExxonMobil and its ilk. Executives at companies like Exxon knew everything there was to know about climate change as far back as the 1970s, but chose to spen.  show all text

The Forest Stewardship Council was established to create an international system for certifying sustainable wood. But critics say it has had minimal impact on tropical deforestation and at times has served only to provide a cover for trafficking in illegal timber.

It was the warmest December on record in the Arctic, and 2018 has already set a string of records for lowest Arctic sea ice. Unfortunately for America and the rest of the planet, the best science makes clear that what happens in the Arctic doesn’t stay in the Arctic. “We long ago anticipated that warming would be greatest in the Arctic owing to the vicious cycle of melting ice and warming oceans,” climate scientist Mike Mann told ThinkProgress via email. “But what we didn’t anticipate is the wa.  show all text

A recent analysis of satellite images gives a glimpse into Peru’s widespread deforestation in 2017.

Our planet reached another miserable milestone earlier this week: Sea ice fell to its lowest level since human civilization began more than 12,000 years ago. That worrying development is just the latest sign that rising temperatures are inflicting lasting changes on the coldest corners of the globe. The new record low comes as the planet’s climate system shifts further from the relatively stable period that helped give rise to cities, commerce, and the way we live now. So far, the new year has .  show all text
