This is really happening: A swath of a U.S. state—and an entire culture—is about to be lost underwater.
The urban heat island effect makes cities extra hot—and some cities are more extra hot than others.
Attention coffee snobs, if you don’t care about climate change already, now might be a good time to start.
“If things continue like this, maybe 50 years from now, we’ll all be tea drinkers.”
The creator of the “I Love NY” symbol is trying his hand at a climate change campaign.
The affects of climate change can be harmful to the earth—and your mind.
Why are advertising students in Alaska studying climate change? The question, says Deborah Morrison, is why isn’t the ad industry studying, and putting its creative might behind climate change, and humanity’s other BIG briefs.
“Why aren’t we as an industry front-and-center in working on the great, wicked issues of our day?”

Air-conditioning units are like the acne of apartment buildings. But not only are they ugly; they also demand quite a bit of electricity, which too often results in the burning of fossil fuels.

"Some people got angry, because I put all this trash in the middle of the pedestrian area," she wrote.
