A Changed Climate In Washington

World Leaders Make Both Moral And Practical Progress In The Debate On Climate Change This Week

Mark this week down as the one that truly shifted the climate conversation in the nation's capital. It was a week where Hillary Clinton's announcement that she opposes the Keystone XL pipeline played fourth fiddle -- and a potential government shutdown was barely even in the band -- climate change was the one unifying theme connecting the week's top stories.  First, Pope Francis called......read more

A new fund wants to disrupt recycling with the help of $100 million from corporate giants like Walmart, Goldman Sachs, and Coca-Cola.

read
Way better than one of those ridiculous balls.

We all know sitting in front of a desk all day is slowly killing us.

read
This is Dendrogramma enigmatica. And as its name suggests, it's quite the enigma.

read
This is what a more sustainable food system looks like

Cubism meets Nintendo in this series of watercolor paintings

Adam Lister has gotten attention for his 8-bit watercolor paintings and in this series, put together by our friends at Faith is Torment, there are a few of Lister's takes on the classics like Seurat, and Hopper.
