We cannot stop catastrophic climate change -- in the long term and possibly even the medium-term -- without a pretty dramatic change to our overconsumption-based economic system. We have already overshot the Earth’s biocapacity, and the overshoot gets worse every year.
Tweet out some gratitude via the hashtag #ClimateThanks. We're thankful for climate scientists, who work tirelessly -- and often thanklessly -- to inform us how to stop catastrophe. We're very thankful for our readers, who've made us the most followed climate website in the world.
A major new study finds natural gas production leaks at least twice as much methane as EPA has estimated. Other recent studies find methane warms the Earth more than we thought, and that gas will displace some renewables. Natural gas is not a "bridge" to the future, but more of a gangplank.

Royal Dutch Shell includes a high carbon price when evaluating new projects. The $40 a metric ton price that Shell uses -- if widely adopted -- would reshape domestic and international energy consumption and investment trends.
It's no longer enviros saying the days of fossil fuel are numbered. We have institutional investors, Goldman Sachs, Bloomberg New Energy Finance, Citigroup, HSBC and many others in the financial industry warning that carbon-based companies are overvalued in the marketplace.
