Just about everyone I talk to about renewable energy says that they want solar panels
Citizens Climate Lobby (CCL) is new to the RI environmental scene and its mission is to create the political will for federal climate legislation. Persistent and nonpartisan, CCL volunteers meet with their members of congress (MOC), editorial boards and community groups, building support for putting a price on carbon. Last year there were 70 chapters throughout the USA. Today there are 150. These people are stubborn and want action on climate.

By Peter Galvin, 11/10/13 -- Prominent climate change scientists are now in panic mode. These experts do not believe the world will succeed in reducing fossil fuel emissions enough to avoid a civilization threatening increase in temperature. Some are saying we must accept nuclear power to keep the wolf from our doors. Others are saying we need to double down on adaptation strategies because the wolf is already at the door. Are they right?
By Peter Galvin / 10.11.13 - Scientists around the world have reached a consensus that, at current emission rates, we have less than 30 years to completely stop generating greenhouse gases if we are to avoid facing major threats to our civilization. In some places collapse will come much sooner. To put it another way, scientists now agree that we are emitting greenhouse gases at such a fast rate that, absent drastic change, we will end up emitting almost as much in the next 30 years as we have emitted since the beginning of the industrial revolution, and that such an emissions level will push us over the edge of the climate that has prevailed on the planet for millions of years.

By KEVIN PROFT/ 6.25.13 - During the RI Sierra Club’s August, 2012 Step Stone Falls outing in West Greenwich I was delighted by seven-year-old Annabelle who seemed excited by everything from catching frogs to reading the trail map. It was a pleasant reminder that the entertainment value of nature can compete with a smart phone or video game when given the chance. At this year’s Step Stone Falls outings, it seemed we wouldn’t get so lucky. “How long have we been hiking,” moaned one of two young boys only minutes into the hike.
