America’s Forgotten Nuclear Disaster: Church Rock Still Poisoning Navajo Tribe 40 Years Later

IMAGE: The imposing and stunning sight of Church Rock in the Navajo Nation, located in northwestern New Mexico. Here is the true cost of the American empire. In 1945, the first atomic bomb was tested at the U.S. defense facility at Alamogordo, New Mexico. Just 34 years later, the area also suffered the worst nuclear waste disaster in its history – which did not receive nearly as much media and political attention than other high-profile incidents.

Carbon tax shows new signs of life in Congress

Members of Congress on both sides of the aisle are introducing competing bills that aim to put a tax on carbon.

Sen. Chris Coons (D-Dela.), Rep. Francis Rooney (R-Fla.) and Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-Ill.) all introduced carbon tax bills on Thursday that each take a shot at cementing the long tossed-around idea of a…

Giant Floating Solar Farms Could Make Fuel and Help Solve the Climate Crisis, Study Says

Jordan Davidson, EcoWatchWaking Times Millions of solar panels clustered together to form an island could convert carbon dioxide in seawater into methanol, which can fuel airplanes and trucks, according to new research from Norway and Switzerland and published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal, PNAS, as NBC News reported. The floating islands could drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions and dependence on fossil fuels. The paper argues that the technology exists to build the floating methanol islands on a large scale in areas of the ocean free…
