Bad plastics, good plastics

The fact is that plastics are a miracle material and could even be the very thing that saves humanity from catastrophic climate change. The problem in our oceans isn’t plastics, it’s what we do with them. Over the years, we got lazy – creating an infinite number of singleuse, throwaway items like bags, drinking straws […]

I grew up on my parents’ farm in Morocco’s green coastal strip, in a country where many people have yet to come to terms with the reality […]

The Future Of Fracking – Can The Drill Be Stopped?

In 2010, a couple of ex-corporate lawyers living in Ithaca, New York State, pioneered an innovative legal framework that gave municipalities the right to make local land use decisions. Helen and David Slottje provided pro-bono legal assistance, helping towns across New York defend themselves from oil and gas companies by passing local bans on fracking. Over 170 towns and cities across the state have […]
