What Will It Take to Cool the Planet? topping new infrastructure is possible -- it's basically a battle with the fossil-fuel industry, which, as I've been pointing out, is losing financial muscle with each passing week.

Big Oil's Reign Is Finally Weakening Exxon's scientists discovered -- before it was publicly an issue -- that climate change was real and dangerous, and when Exxon's executives decided to join with others in the industry to cover up that truth.

Response: Planet of the Humans Documentary I am used to ceaseless harassment and attack from the fossil fuel industry, and I've done my best to ignore a lifetime of death threats from right-wing extremists. It does hurt more to be attacked by others who think of themselves as environmentalists. I have spent much of the last ten years doing my best to enlarge the environmental movement in every way I can think of, and to support others in their work;

How We Can Build a Hardier World After the Coronavirus The coronavirus pandemic has revealed one particularly shocking thing about our societies and economies: they have been operating on a very thin margin. So if we're thinking about building civilization back in a hardier and more resilient form, we'll have to learn what a more stable footing might look like.

Will the Coronavirus Kill the Oil Industry? Since the coronavirus took over our global conversation, the Trump Administration has also granted the oil industry the favor of dramatically reducing the mileage standards that the Obama Administration had imposed during the 2009 financial bailout.

"Working Together Is What Humans Are Built to Do": Social Trust Is Key to Stemming the Coronavirus Crisis The coronavirus pandemic is now so sprawling that it has revealed the souls of tens of thousands of individuals, from remarkably kind nurses to online sellers seeking to corner the market for hand sanitizers (until finally deciding to donate them).

In the Midst of the Coronavirus Pandemic, Construction Is Set to Resume on the Keystone Pipeline The oil industry has been working to push through construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. The effort began in earnest in mid-March, when several states -- including, crucially, South Dakota, which is on the KXL route -- passed laws designating pipelines as "critical infrastructure."

The Nature of Crisis With climate change, we had effective warning in the late nineteen-eighties and early nineties. At that time, we could have made somewhat disruptive efforts to cut carbon emissions by a percent or two a year. But we didn't, and nor did any other country, for the same reason: the oil companies didn't want "the numbers" (in this case, the profits) to change.

The Coronavirus and the Climate Movement The result of heating the Earth will be an ongoing, accelerating series of disasters, eventually overwhelming our ability to cope. The pace of those events has been increasing in recent years, and our ability to keep them at something like a manageable level depends on the speed with which we transition off of gas, oil, and coal.

With the Coronavirus, Hell Is No Other People The strangest thing about the coronavirus is that we can't help one another through it. We can't lay on hands, we can only wash them: in fact, the way we've been explicitly told to help is to stay away from one another.

What Can the Coronavirus Teach Us? Things can go very, very wrong, and very, very quickly. That's precisely what scientists have been telling us for decades now about the climate crisis, and it's what people have learned, from Australia to California, Puerto Rico, and everywhere that flood and fire has broken out.

When it comes to climate hypocrisy, Canada's leaders have reached a new low Canada, which is 0.5% of the planet's population, plans to use up nearly a third of the planet's remaining carbon budget. Ottawa hides all this behind a series of pledges about "net-zero emissions by 2050" and so on, but they are empty promises.

Why Should You Climate Strike This Friday, September 20? A year ago, inspired by Swedish schoolgirl Greta Thunberg, young people around the world began climate striking. In May, when 1.4 million kids around the world walked out of school, they asked for adults to join them next time. That next time is September 20 (in a few countries September 27), and it is shaping up to be the biggest day of climate action in the planet's history.

If the world ran on sun, it wouldn't fight over oil No one will ever fight a war over access to sunshine -- what would a country do, set up enormous walls to shade everyone else's panels? Fossil fuels are concentrated in a few places, giving those who live atop them enormous power; renewable energy can be found everywhere, the birthright of all humans. A world that runs on sun and wind is a world that can relax.
