For activists, blue and red, election day is a transition point, not an end

Aaron McCall was sure Hillary Clinton was going to win the Presidency in 2016. When it turned out he was wrong — and Clinton lost to President Donald Trump — McCall decided it was time to get involved.

While both men fall on different sides of the political spectrum, their work over the past two years culminates today, Tuesday, Nov. 6, as voters head to the polls to c...

Capitalism is killing the world’s wildlife populations, not ‘humanity’

The latest Living Planet report from the WWF makes for grim reading: a 60% decline in wild animal populations since 1970, collapsing ecosystems, and a distinct possibility that the human species will not be far behind. The report repeatedly stresses that humanity's consumption is to blame for this mass extinction, and journalists have been quick to amplify the message. The Guardian headline reads “Humanity has wiped out 60% of animal populations", while the BBC runs with “Mass wildlife loss caus...

When politicians are asked tough questions about policies that defy science, they'll sometimes retort: "Hey, I'm not a scientist."  In fact, there is currently only one PhD scientist among the 535 members of Congress: Bill Foster, who represents Illinois' 11th District. The medical professions are a bit better represented, with three nurses and 15 doctors in Congress.
