Again, vested interests in the coal, oil and gas industries have undertaken major campaigns for decades now to preserve their industries.
Eating for a Healthier Planet
After a dozen years, I can tell you that we eat better than ever.
Always a challenge for me
Losing our carbon ‘weight’ is no longer a ‘need to,’ as in ‘I’ll get around to it someday.’ It’s a MUST do and a MUST do NOW!
No time for despair: climate change reality
