Domino's sugar goes carbon-free

Sugar is a naturally sweet product from our earth, so it’s natural for us to want to be good stewards of our environment. We have a head start at this, in fact, because the sugar cane plant converts sunlight to energy more efficiently than any other major crop. As a result of this and the various earth friendly farming techniques and energy producing efforts at our Florida facility, the sugar you find in specially marked packages of Domino® Sugar have been certified CarbonFree® by Carbonfund.org, a non-profit organization that certifies products with carbon neutral footprints. The label CarbonFree® means the product's carbon footprint is rendered neutral by cutting green-house gases. And that’s a sweet thing for all of us! Read more.

Heatstroke: Nature in an Age of Global Warming

From Publishers Weekly

Around the world, climate change is indicated by natural events-especially in shifting migration routes-leading to results familiar (species die-out) and unexpected-like the discovery of a heretofore unprecedented "pizzly," a bear cub with one polar parent and one grizzly. Not all geographical displacement is quite so friendly; as ""ecological niches are shriveling up and disappearing," common and persistent species are dying off at a rate "between 17 percent and 377 percent faster than normal" over the past 400 years. While reviewing the evidence that points to drastic changes resulting from even small global temperature increases, Barnosky also discusses biodiversity's importance, compares rates of evolutionary change with global temperatures, and recounts Earth's four previous mass extinctions. One of her grim assessments is that "many of the species that humans tend to like" will be wiped out by global warming, and spur helpful evolutionary diversification only in "what we normally call pests." For the most part Barnosky is less gloomy than curious, able and straight-forward, flavoring his report with a sense of adventure and possibility; by the end of his discussion on humanity's four-pronged problem-global warming, habitat loss, introduced species and population growth-Barnosky will have readers looking to do more than change lightbulbs.

Little People Big Changes: Kids Act for the World Around Them

About "Little People, Big Changes"

"Little People, Big Changes" is a kids' action group in Wilton, Connecticut, founded by Alex and Jordan, who joined together in Fall ’06 to form a “club" committed to identifying issues that affect the world at large, to learning about them, and then to taking action.

Alex and Jordan have been most active with their "no idle" presentation in an effort to raise awareness about global warming and that kids can and should take a central role. They are now joined by many other Wilton kids in a campaign to encourage as many Wilton residents as possible to sign up for the Connecticut Clean Energy Option (CTCleanEnergyOptionsSM), so that their energy usage will be offset with wind and landfill gas renewable energy credits -- displacing energy from suppliers using coal, oil, and gas generation, which create carbon emissions that exacerbate global warming.

In May 2008, Jordan and Alex were honored on behalf of Little People Big Changes by Governor Jodi Rell's Climate Change Committee with a Climate Change Leadership Award. Read all about it.

Why save water?

Take a 90-second quiz and Kohler will donate $1 in water conservation products to Habitat for Humanity's sustainable building efforts.

@Sydni: What are the three stages of succumbing to the truth? I think it goes 1.) Denial/Ridicule, 2.) Resistance, and 3.) Acceptance.

Like Daimond said in Collapse. The problems will rectify themselves, either by common sense and planning, or through disaster and turmoil. (I'll be posting a discussion on this book shortly.)
