COP20 Kicks The Climate Change Can

The United Nations Climate Change Conference recently wrapped up in Lima, Peru producing an agreement between over 200 nations known as the "Lima Accord. On the surface, it appears that the Lima Accord ends an impasse that has prevented the UN from creating a global concerted effort to fight climate change. However, digging deeper, the Lima Accord is more superficial rhetoric […]

Lame Duck; Lame Bill

The Republicans didn't even wait until assuming control of the full Congress to unleash their attack on the environment. They've given us a preview of what's to come and unwrapped a surreptitious spending bill, called the Cromnibus. Written in a cigar smoke filled back room, the bill contains a litany of stocking stuffers for their polluting pals, just in time […]

The Environmental Movement and Ferguson: From Why to How

I recently attended many of the successful and largely peaceful protest in New York City surrounding the death of Eric Gardner at the hands of the New York City Police Department. On my way home from one of them, I could not help but think about the differences between the protests in New York and those in Ferguson following the […]

The Denial is the Hoax

  When I woke up last Wednesday after the election, I immediately thought about how the new congressional leadership would effect the environment.

            In Partnership With                 The citizens of St. Tammany Parish have spoken, and spoken loudly. They don't want Helis fracking wells in their community. The negative effects of fracking on the natural environment and public health are bad enough, but the fact that these wells would be located next […]

Scrap Rezoning Considerations in NYC

Re-zonings have resulted in devastating effects to communities through gentrification, displacement and reductions in community cohesiveness. The rich cultural legacy of Sunset Park must be retained and all zoning considerations need be taken off the table for our working waterfront.                   In Partnership With                       […]

Bioneers Recap Part I

I just got back from the 2014 Bioneers Conference in Marin County, California. The only thing more beautiful than the picturesque setting of the conference's location was the flow and exchange of ideas for how to curb Climate Change and shift our mode of thinking and behaviors to a more sustainable reality.  I had the opportunity to meet and speak with Naomi Klein throughout the […]

So The People’s Climate March Kicked Ass, Now What?

I always try my best to observe the Buddhist precept of letting the past remain where it was and embracing the present where it is. But I have to admit that I am still flying from the success of the People’s Climate March. Nonetheless, I personally have not honored the success of the march by celebrating, for me the success […]

When I interviewed Caroline Murray, Lead Organizer for the People’s Climate March, this past Thursday (Please check our website/Facebook page for extended footage of the interview soon), she indicated […]
