http://www.examiner.com/slideshow/gmos-glyphosate-and-neurological-disorders#slide=1 Could Roundup (glyphosate) sprayed on corn and soy in the US be the cause? Something to ponder. It's nearly imp more »

But totally wrong. David is not a climate scientist. He quotes an outlier in the science community. Most TV meteorologists are climate deniers (something to do with Lyndon State and the founder of more »

Climate scientists have proven that climate change is caused by burning fossil fuels. There is proof in the atmospheric CO2. The question is: what is man going to do about it?

Read Dr. Jennifer Francis' (Rutgers atmospheric scientist) work about how the jetstream is changing due to the melting arctic. Also, an excellent blog to understand how the melting Arctic is affec more »

Arctic ice will be gone in a few years. Good-bye to the favorable climate we humans have been used to for thousands of years. Hello to drought, famine, fires, extreme weather of all sorts. Yes, the more »

That's right - teach your kids to root for a huge money-making corporation. The Kraft family thanks you. Have Tom and Gisele invited you to visit them in their 10,000 s.f. mansion? In the meantime, more »

Texasfan, yes I have solar PV. The installation will pay for itself in 8-10 years and for the next 20-30 years, my electricity (and hot water) will be free. I would consider that a very good investm more »

Fossil fuels are going to run out. Better get used to higher rates. Maybe it's time to install some insulation? A few solar panels? How about unplugging that second fridge in the basement? Has an more »

"To cherish what remains of the earth and to foster its renewal is our only legitimate hope of survival." Wendell Berry.

But the question remains: when will humans realize they have the power to prevent the worst of climate catastrophe by reducing their use of fossil fuels NOW? Do you care enough about your grandchildr more »

The day is coming, though, when like it or not, we Americans will be forced to change our lifestyles because of climate change. The forces of Mother Nature will bear down on us, with one violent sto more »

Wouldn't it make sense to pass a law requiring that all 'date-rape' drugs contain a dye that changes the color of a drink to bright pink? I'm sure the drug manufacturers have a simple way to do it bu more »

I see a lot of suburban moms driving large white SUVs. What is the ROI on a $50,000 SUV? Compare to ROI on solar PV. Energy efficiency is the answer. Insulate your house, reduce monthly KWH. Then b more »

As a Bishop, he knew about predator priests and did nothing to protect children. I guess he's always been a Republican.

Just like the tobacco industry. And their product is poison, too. You might think diet soda will keep you thin, but your pancreas will not be happy. We can live being slightly pudgy, but we cannot l more »

For some reason, I doubt you drive a Versa. I'm thinking you drive a big gas guzzling pickup truck.

This is a beautiful story of life and love. I don't care how much it's cost to keep this little girl alive. Her life was meaningful to her mother and other family members. I just hope she passes p more »

Courageous. The Arctic Ocean will probably be ice-free this summer and oil companies are waiting impatiently to drill. It will be interesting to watch how they mis-handle a major oil spill/blowout u more »

There is only one food law that we must enact: GMO Food labeling. I do not want to eat Roundup with my supper, and I don't want fish genes mixed with my tomatoes. I don't want Monsanto determining more »

Will it be too little, too late? Can anything stop the Arctic and Greenland from melting? What a shame for future generations that our leaders, with the knowledge that climate change was happening, more »

Best way to ruin your future? Get pregnant at 14. Best way to prevent unwanted pregnancy? Use a condom. Distribute them freely at all schools.

Parking is permitted ON the beach? What is this, 1965? Is this why people buy giant SUVs...so they can crush shore birds? Mother Nature has been warning us for a few decades to respect her. I gues more »

Sad that the education system has failed so badly that people believe what this entertainer says and vote accordingly.

To the unhappy jerks who posted mean things, get a life. These kids worked hard through high school, didn't get in trouble and should be rewarded. Let the kids have fun. And besides, lots of town more »
