The Emerging Clean Energy Edge

Posted on July 8th, 2014

Global energy markets are reaching a tipping point. A pathway has opened for climate progress, but only if governments, business and public’s recognize and exploit the opportunity.

For the first time, a large fraction of the world’s fossil fuels could be replaced at a lower cost by clean energy, with today’s renewable technologies and prices. And virtually no further investments in fossil fuels make long-term economic sense because higher fossil fuel prices over their useful life will be exorbitant.

Do the Math on Climate Change

Posted on November 12th, 2012

This November, Bill McKibben and are hitting the road to build the movement that will change the terrifying math of the climate crisis. Joe Bowman and Andy Betts are planning to attend this event and report back. If you are interested in attending, call Joe at 513-720-8744 or email him at

Columbus, OH – 11/27/2012

Doors open 6PM, event starts at 7 PM

Featuring Bill McKibben.

It’s simple math: we can burn 565 more gigatons of carbon dioxide and stay below 2°C of warming — anything more than that risks catastrophe for life on earth. The only problem? Fossil fuel corporations now have 2,795 gigatons in their reserves, five times the safe amount. And they’re planning to burn it all — unless we rise up to stop them. Read More

Bad Federal Transportation Bill

Posted on February 11th, 2012

Here’s a quick update on what’s happening and a few talking points:
