Not Eating Meat Can Cut Your Food-Related Carbon Emissions Almost In Half, Study Finds
If you're trying to reduce your carbon footprint, you may want to think twice next time you reach for a burger. According to a new study, people with a high-meat diet contribute more than twice the diet-related greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere as a vegan, and a little less than twice the emissions of a vegetarian.

President Obama is set to unveil the most significant American attempt yet made to curb carbon dioxide emissions when he announces new restrictions on existing power plants on Monday.
(Webmaster's comment: There has been no reduction of carbon dioxide emissions from the United States for at least 22 years. The capitalists are going to fight this mandate with tooth and claw. They stand to lose millions in future personal wealth. The rest us just stand to lose a decent environment to live in. But what's more important, the environment we all live in or a few getting obscenely rich!)

Almost half of new electricity is now clean and green
That's a lot of clean power. Almost half of new electricity generation is now renewable, and the costs of wind and solar power are falling sharply. It "should give governments confidence to forge a robust climate agreement" next year, says Achim Steiner, director of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
