A group in New York may have found a way to get around the state’s so-called ban on fracking.

The state …

Hillary Clinton released a video on Monday mimicking a trailer for an old horror film — except instead of Frankenstein, the monsters were the Republican presidential candidates who deny that human-caused climate change is real. Specifically, the video mocked candidates who have said “I’m not a scientist” when asked whether they accept the overwhelming scientific evidence that current global warming …

When Hillary Clinton released a fact sheet detailing her plan to fight climate change on Sunday night, her presidential campaign characterized it as “bold.” Indeed, the goals outlined in the plan are significant — a 700 percent increase in solar installations by the end of her first term, and enough renewable energy to power every home in the country within …

During a visit to Kenya on Saturday, President Obama announced sweeping bans to the United States’ ivory trade in the hopes of protecting the increasingly endangered African elephant.

Just over a month …

James Hansen and 16 leading climate experts have written a must-read discussion paper on what humanity risks if it can’t keep total global warming below 2C (3.6F). The greatest risk they identify is “that multi-meter sea level rise would become practically unavoidable.” This is warning everyone should heed — not just because Hansen’s co-authors include some of the world’s top sea-level …

The GOP field is (almost) complete, after Ohio Governor John Kasich became the 17th major candidate to announce his presidential run this week. This means we can draw some conclusions about the opponent the eventual Democratic nominee will be facing in the general election. It’s an extremely safe bet that the Republican nominee will not take more action to confront …

Five years ago, a pipeline carrying crude oil from Canadian tar sands ruptured in Michigan, spilling over 1 million gallons into the Kalamazoo River in what would become the largest inland oil spill in U.S. history. Now, as oil companies attempt to expand pipelines across the upper Midwest, and as the Keystone Pipeline that would carry similar crude waits for …

“Global coal demand is slowing fast,” is the headline in a June Business Insider Australia story. “The global coal renaissance is the most important climate story today,” is the headline in a July Vox story. Which is correct? Mostly the first one. There was a true global coal renaissance starting around the year 2000, a resurgence due primarily to China. But …

If Republican presidential candidates are looking to win votes in key swing states, they may want to change their tone on climate change.

Studies have shown time and again that humans are pretty effective at driving other animals to extinction — but a new study published in Science this week suggests that when it comes to some species, that blame might have been misplaced. The study — conducted by researchers at the University of Adelaide — claims that a series of abrupt climatic events, …

For generations, members of the Apache Native American tribe have viewed Oak Flat as a holy, sacred place. Located about an hour due east of Phoenix, Arizona, the land has long served as a site for traditional acorn gatherings, burial services, and rite of passage ceremonies for young women.

Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush told a student in New Hampshire on Wednesday that he supports killing all subsidies for oil and gas — including the billions in tax breaks the industry receives each year.

Aside from corn, rice might be the single most important staple crop on Earth. According to the International Center for Tropical Agriculture, more than 3.5 billion people around the world depend on rice for at least 20 percent of their daily caloric intake.

The Republican-led House of Representatives struck another blow to environmental regulation Wednesday night, passing a bill that will undercut the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) coal ash regulations, opponents said.
