    A simple thing I do that doesn't seem to occur to a lot of people is putting out the trash and recyling bins on the curb for collection ONLY when they're full or close to full. Most folks I know put out their trash on every pickup day, no matter how full the bin is. I don't want decaying food scraps to create an unpleasant smell or attract...

     The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change presents evidence demonstrating how human activity is driving global warming:  Key Findings of the Working Group I Contribution to the IPCC  on the Physical Science Basis of Climate Change. No, we can't blame it on volcanoes. Fossil fuels are the only source of carbon dioxide large enough to raise...

    Today I learned that half of all environmental pressures from food production come from just five countries: India, China, the United States, Brazil and Pakistan. Details in this article from phys.org: Researchers Map Environmental Pressures of Global Food Production
