Listen, we're not going to preach to you about vegetarianism. Meat is a very energy-intensive thing to farm, but unless you live on top of a pole and eat worms, you're going to have an impact on the environment, so, you know ... go ahead and prioritize however you want. That said, 2-year-old Luiz Antonio kind of has a point here: Animals have heads, and when you eat them they die.
Electoral fraud occurred during the last federal election, a federal court judge ruled on Thursday, but there is no proof that it affected the outcomes in six ridings at issue, so the elections will not be overturned.
The court challenge was brought by the Council of Canadians, which sought to overturn the election of six Conservative MPs who won close ridings where there was evidence that someone tried to affect the results by calling opposition supporters and telling them their polling stations had moved.
The notion of "externalities" has become familiar in environmental circles. It refers to costs imposed by businesses that are not paid for by those businesses. For instance, industrial processes can put pollutants in the air that increase public health costs, but the public, not the polluting businesses, picks up the tab.

Sustainable urban transportation -- sidewalks, bike lanes, and public transit like subways, buses, and street cars -- are all central to successful urban development, but no one size fits all.

At the Innovative Metropolis conference organized by the Brookings Institution and Washington University in St.
Schoolkids might soon know more about climate change than you do. Millions of young Americans will finally be taught, in a methodical manner, about the science behind the biggest threat to their generation: climate change.

If you could take 20 minutes out of your day to watch this short film, that would be greatly appreciated!
"Planetary Collective presents a short film documenting astronauts’ life-changing stories of seeing the Earth from the outside – a perspective-altering experience often described as the Overview Effect.
Common features of the experience are a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment."
Climate scientists have estimated that, in order to avoid runaway global warming, the world would need to cut its carbon emissions roughly in half by 2050. Since emissions in developing countries like China and India are still rising fast, meeting this target would require developed nations to aim for a figure more like 80 percent. When you consider that the United States, the largest polluter in the developed world, has no real strategy in place to achieve that -- and that no binding international agreements appear to be on the horizon -- the goal can start to sound nigh impossible.

Lets go on a journey of discovery through the secret rivers in the world's great cities.
Once the rivers ran freely through any industrial city with self-respect, as an integral part of the city's infrastructure. Houses were built along the banks. The power gave energy to the mills and factories. But as cities grow, the rivers are so polluted that they were deadly disease carriers of everything from plague to cholera.
