Akshat Rathi, Humanity’s fight against climate change is failing. One technology can change that.”The only problem is drilling into these volcanic regions also releases carbon dioxide, the major greenhouse gas driving global climate change. Geothermal power is still very clean, producing just 3% of the emissions of a coal plant generating the same power. But Iceland wants to reduce its emissions all the way to zero.” read

Tom Jacobs, How the Threat of Climate Change Spurs Ethnocentrism “The prospect of a dangerously warming planet inspires us to cling more tightly to our tribe. That is the discouraging finding of two newly published studies.One reports that confronting people with climate-change warnings provoked higher levels of ethnocentrism among residents of a central European nation—and decreased their intentions of acting in Earth-friendly ways. The other finds the threat of global warming increases group conformity, leading people to more tightly endorse the truisms their circle subscribe to.” read

Naomi Klein, Canada’s Founding Myths Hold Us Back From Addressing Climate Change. “Today, we have federal and provincial governments that talk a lot about reconciliation. But this will remain a cruel joke if non-electenous Canadians do not confront the why behind those human-rights abuses.
