US Carbon Emissions Rise 2% In 2013 After 5 Yr Hiatus – due to increase in coal consumption as the rising price of natural gas made coal more competitive, reports Jeremy Hance at Mongabay. Doesn’t sound like much? Scientists say that if global society doesn’t rein-in emissions quickly and aggressively, future impacts could include mass extinction, agricultural collapse, water shortages, and even increased warfare. We have to change this, folks!
Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here: http://signon.org/sign/we-are-the-clean-99?source=c.em.cp&r_by=487176 . This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is this year!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
