You know how in those alien invasion movies like "transformers" how aliens can just create a new home on another planet when their own planet is dying out? Well I wish I could say the same for us. We can't just up and go to Mars and set camp there and act like Earth never existed. As much as I hate to admit, we only have this one Earth, this one home. And if it crumbles, so will we. What we are doing right now is creating a world that will not save us. We are robbing tomor...

Tomorrow, an important event is taking place in New York City – one with repercussions far beyond the tiny island of Manhattan. Tomorrow, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will host the 2014 Climate Summit, with an important goal – to get everyone behind the plan to address climate change and the effects it will have on us all. But these effects are likely to impact some groups of people more than others – and children and young people are key among them. Not...

Decades of climate change brings risks that people will accept higher temperatures, with more heat waves, downpours & draughts as ‘normal’ & complicate government plans to do more to cut greenhouse gas emissions. “Because the last three decades have seen such a significant rise in global & regional temperature, most people under the age of 30 have not lived in a world without global warming,” told Michel Jarraud, Secretary General of UN World Meteorological...

I recently decided to ask a couple of my fellow climate ambassadors why they really cared about the fight against climate change. Most answers were because they care about the environment or because they want to conserve the environment or even because it was the right thing to do. Even though all those reasons are okay I think now there's an even bigger reason to care - Human Rights. Climate change is now posing a threat to the fulfillment of human rights in many states a...

From the beginning of human history, we had to satisfy our energy needs for food, heat and movement by using our own muscle power and gathering or hunting naturally available plants, animals and wood. Each stage in the evolution of human society the development of farming, domestication of animals, harnessing of wind and water power increased the average per capita energy use, but it was the Industrial Revolution and the exploitation of fossil fuels which marked the transformation of societies i...
