Whether it’s Hurricane Sandy in New York or mega-floods in Pakistan, our communities see the face of climate change. Join South Asians for Climate Justice as we call on President Obama to do the right thing at the UN Climate Summit!
In the US, low income and people of color communities are disproportionately impacted by climate change. All the issues we care about—whether it’s women’s rights, economic justice, housing rights, and beyond—will be made worse with food shortages, extreme weather, rising seas, etc.
Climate justice is important to all of us. Bandana Kaur blogs about why Sikhs are gathering And here is an article on how climate change will impact countries like Bangladesh.

China is building a “car-free” city that will support 80,000 residents who can travel without a vehicle. The project is designed to reduce waste, preserve wildlife, and cut energy use in half. Source


I WOULD LIVE IN A CITY LIKE THIS SO FAST.

Across the nation, American businesses, families, and communities are embracing clean, renewable energy that is homegrown, healthy, and can never run out. By finding alternatives to fossil fuels that pollute our air and disrupt our climate, they are showcasing the single most practical way to tackle climate change, starting now. Companies including General Motors, Walmart, Apple, Johnson & Johnson, Crayola and Google are putting in solar and wind farms to run operations, and finding that clean energy is good for business. 
Schools from Virginia to Nebraska to Alaska are generating their own clean renewable energy, saving money while helping young people in their communities breathe more easily.

Thanks to Huffington Post for featuring my article on Clean Energy. You can read all of it HERE.

Burlington, Vt., just became the first city to go completely renewable 

With electricity prices rising across the country at the fastest pace in years, the city of Burlington, Vt., looks well-prepared for the future.
On Monday, the largest city in Vermont announced that it now has 100% renewable energy — from biomass, wind, hydro — to meet the needs of its 42,000 residents.
It actually makes economic sense

The magnitude of the California drought — in one GIF 

The stunning images above shows the effects of California’s drought on Lake Oroville State Recreation Area, a state park north of Sacramento. 
The photographs were taken three years apart: the green and hydrated version in 2011 and its parched sister in 2014. The lake has frequently been cited as a prime example of the drought’s destruction: “Currently at 32% of its total 3,537,577 acre feet,” the caption reads.
