Last week, I did a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) about the draft environment chapter of the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) that appeared on WikiLeaks (spoiler: It's a terrible draft). People asked many good questions, but my favorite from the session was one I never get tired of hearing: "What can we do?"

You are drilling for oil and natural gas, and you probably don’t even know it.  What, you say you’ve never near a drilling rig, and aren’t even sure what one looks like?  You’re still drilling, because companies you own are drilling. Many financial advisors and asset managers routinely assume that broadly diversified stock portfolios will have holdings in fossil fuels companies.  Even most stock mutual funds that identify themselves as ‘green’ funds contain natural gas and even oil holdings.

  I write this as Americans celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence, with its majestic opening: “When in the course of human events…” As we recall the 150th anniversary of a battle that inspired Lincoln’s words about a war “testing whether that nation, or any nation … can long endure.” With the ringing phrases of President Kennedy’s inaugural address in my mind: “We will pay any price, bear any burden...”

Exactly 54 days after Lisa B. Nelson, the new CEO of the American Legislative Council (ALEC), started her job, Eric Schmidt, the chairman of Google, dropped the bomb: Google wanted out of its relationship with ALEC. "That was some sort of mistake," Schmidt said on The Diane Rehm Show when a caller asked why Google was supporting the organization. "We're trying to not do that in the future."

Por Javier SierraHoy celebramos el Día de la Tierra. A mi me gusta llamarlo su cumpleaños. Pero esta fiesta de la Madre Tierra incluye un ponche amargo de la marca BP. El domingo se cumplió el cuarto aniversario del derrame petrolero de BP en el Golfo de México, la peor catástrofe medioambiental de nuestra historia. El 20 de abril de 2010, el estallido de la plataforma Deep Horizon causó la muerte de 11 trabajadores y el derrame de 200 millones de galones de crudo.
