What YOU Can Do About Climate Change : Divest, Invest, Talk and VOTE (DITV)

I’m guessing that you and the average people who glance at the headlines about the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report (this is a good recap) are going to react at some level with, “Geez, this is such a BIG problem! And I’m so busy — there is no way I can really do much at all to solve it.” Even if you do all those green things (go vegetarian, drive a Prius, insulate your home, etc.) – and especially if you don’t. Heading to the next Starbucks and enjoying that coffee while you can, or an equivalent response will probably be your strongest temptation. Just a guess of mine. Okay then, go grab that cup of comforting java. But as your neurons light up with the first burst of caffeine, consider this: YOU can do something significant. That’s right, you, just you […]

The Gift of the Forest: Jane Goodall at 80

Jane Goodall’s vision for her life began to form at the age of five when she hid in a chicken coop to see if she could discover “where on a chicken was there an opening big enough for an egg to come out.” She still recalls tumbling out of the hen house in excitement to tell her mother her discovery. Shortly thereafter — by the age of eight — she had fallen in love with Tarzan and decided she wanted to live in Africa. “I knew that, somehow, I would go to Africa and live with the animals,” she said. “I don’t think I spent too much time wondering exactly how I would do it. I just felt sure the right opportunity would somehow come.” At the age of 23, her dream came true. She was invited to visit a friend whose family had bought a farm in Kenya […]

5 Things to Know About How Climate Change Impacts the World

Today leading science experts released the latest United Nations report on the impacts of climate change around the world. As the Associated Press reported: “The big risks and overall effects of global warming are far more immediate and local than scientists once thought. It’s not just about melting ice, threatened animals and plants. It’s about the human problems of hunger, disease, drought, flooding, refugees and war, becoming worse.” We can meet the climate challenge, but we must act now. Here are five things you need to know about climate change: Climate change is already impacting every country in different ways. Our communities, our economies, and the air, land, and water we rely on are vulnerable to climate change. We’re already being forced to adapt to climate change. Making adaptation more effective will help us build a richer, more resilient world. […]

Latinos Benefit From Green Jobs: Dirty Energy Industry Looks Green With Envy

We are in the midst of an epidemic of devastating oil and coal spills. In recent weeks, we have witnessed oil spills in the Mississippi River, on the Galveston, TX, coast and in Lake Michigan, among others. We have also seen terrible toxic coal spills in the Dan River, NC, and the Elk River, WV. It will take hundreds of millions of dollars to clean up these disasters. And they claim dirty energy is cheap! On the other hand, when we have a sun spill, we call it a nice day. And that is precisely what I want to talk to you about today, the huge economic and environmental benefits that clean energy brings to Latino workers and the whole country […]

5 Surprising Things About Paris’ First Female Mayor, Anne Hidalgo

“I am the first woman mayor of Paris. I am aware of the challenge.” MoreHere’s How to Say ‘Hello’ In 21 Different LanguagesThis Teenager Got a McDonald’s Receipt Tattooed On His ForearmMen Charged With Toppling Ancient Rock Formation Avoid Jail Time Huffington PostHere’s An Updated Tally Of All The People Who Have Ever Died From A Marijuana Overdose Huffington PostBones May Solve 50-Year-Old Cold Case of Missing Mother Inez Garcia PeopleAnne Hidalgo doesn’t need to mince words. After 13 years as a deputy mayor under outgoing incumbent Bertrand Delanoë, the 54-year-old Socialist candidate is ready to lead. Nor was her win ambiguous, Hidalgo got nearly 55% of the vote. Perhaps the most surprising aspect of this year’s race was that even if Hidalgo hadn’t won, Paris still would have had a female mayor. The socialist’s rival was Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, of the center-right Union for a Popular Movement (UMP) party. But gender isn’t the only interesting thing about the new mayor of Paris: 1) She’s not from France. Hidalgo hails from the Spanish province of Cádiz, which is famous for being the only town that didn’t surrender to the French during Napoleon’s attempted occupation in 1810. She moved with her family to Lyon as a toddler, eventually adopting the name of Anne at 14 after becoming a French citizen. Her humble — and more importantly, non native — origins were used by the opposition during a campaign that often focused on the differences in class between the two main candidates, according to the AFP. 2) She’s all about the environment. Hidalgo is closely connected to Vélib, the bike sharing program her predecessor launched in 2007. Her campaign promises included mentions of starting Scooterlib’, a free moped system and expanding Autolib’, a recently launched electric car sharing service. She’s also advocated for more pedestrian walkways and green spaces. 3) She’s really, really against Scientology. In 2005, Hidalgo served as the head of a committee that monitored what the government calls “cultlike groups” groups, including, in this case, the Church of Scientology. She even participated in a protest at the Paris’ offices of the organization. 4) Her wardrobe won’t be in the spotlight. In early March, Hidalgo talked to Vogue about Paris’ role in supporting the fashion industry and young designers. She spoke about her own relationship with style, including memories of her mother, who was a dressmaker. The stylish Parisian, who clearly understands how what a female politician wears affects their public perception, described her aesthetic to WWD: “I am an elected official, not a model. I like a subdued style, not bling-bling.” (She was perhaps hoping to contract with the former president of France, Nicolas Sarkozy who was nicknamed by critics as president “bling bling” because of his showy lifestyle and ex-fashion model wife.) 5) She doesn’t have much company among mayors: Hidalgo joined the ranks of just a few women who serve as mayors of major cities, including Ana Botella of Madrid and Patricia de Lille of Cape Town, and Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz of Warsaw. (But as revolutionary as Hidalgo’s election is, it doesn’t put France is ahead of the game in terms of female politicians in general. In fact, the two leading French political parties often pay penalties rather than field an equal number of female candidates, according to The Guardian.) […]
