It’s not uncommon in our technology-obsessed society for common sense to be tossed aside in favor of robotic gadgetry and whiz-bang statistics that look impressive but don’t really convey relevant information. Case in point: winery Mobius Marlborough’s new bottle labeling campaign.
A day after the San Francisco Giants beat the Texas Rangers in the World Series, California voters showed up at polling places around the state and sent this message loud and clear: We're not going to let some Texas Big Oil corporations come in and try to take away our green jobs and clean energy economy!
A pollution issue that made a hero out of a Kansas governor and helped propel her into Obama's cabinet has made a martyr out of the public servant who actually took the courageous action at the heart of the controversy.
It’s finally happened. The job outsourcing phenomenon has moved to another level. Forget outsourcing jobs to other countries—now they’re being outsourced to other species.
Portland, OR, is just the latest urban area to join the hip (and sensible) species outsourcing trend. Quiet the noisy, gas guzzling, carbon polluting lawn mower. Leave those toxic herbicides on the store shelf. It’s time to call in the goats.
The CounterParts Crew does not rap about “popping caps” or “getting hyphy,” and they would likely question the eco-friendliness of anyone “rolling on dubs.” Instead, the hip-hop group is dropping rhymes in the name of today's election and California's Proposition 23.
Oregon's second largest run of salmon outside the Columbia Basin is returning home to a remodeled Rogue River this fall, and it looks as if they like the updated digs.
The storied Rogue has been the setting for the most significant series of dam removals yet seen in the western United States, with four dams down in the last three years, opening up 157 continuous miles of free-flowing mainstem river for the first time in more than a century. Tributaries included, the removals have provided salmon and steelhead better access to 333 miles of habitat upstream of the former dams.
