Who Needs Trump? It Takes Only a Few Countries to Kickstart Shift to Low Carbon Energy System

Triggering a global transformation of our energy systems as required by the Paris Agreement does not take the whole world; it can be started by just a small group of countries, according to a new Climate Action Tracker report.

The global rise of renewable energy, which accounted for over half of all new electricity installations in 2015, was a result of strong actions by just a few countries, according to “Faster & Cleaner 2: kickstarting global decarbonization,” released April 20 by the Climate Action Tracker and the ClimateWorks Foundation.

Modern Agriculture Drives Hunger, Obesity and Disease While Simultaneously Threatening Food Chain and Worsening Water Crisis

Agriculture is necessary for food production, and therefore for life, the farmer would have said with firm conviction — and farming the land or raising cattle is not going to unduly harm anything or anyone.

How Mainstream Media Insults the Public's Intelligence on Vaccines

There is a bitter war going on, and it's not over Trumpcare or immigration: It is about vaccines.
