Earth Day 2013 Reveals New Debates Among Environmentalists and Climate Change Deniers

More than four decades after Jimi Hendrix died and Simon & Garfunkel released ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’, Earth Day remains one of the world’s major environmental campaigns.

International Business Times shares the history of Earth Day, an idea launched by Gaylord Nelson, then a Democratic senator from Wisconsin. Earth Day was born in the aftermath of the 1969 oil spill in Santa Barbara, Ca — then the largest oil spill in America’s water.

The Environmental Protection Agency was created, along with passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species Acts.

Earth Day went global two decades later with a massive campaign mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries. It kickstarted recycling programs worldwide and paved the way for the 1992 United Nations Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro.

This year’s campaign is called ‘The Face of Climate Change’, and it will “unite the myriad Earth Day events around the world into one call to action at a critical time,” Franklin Russell, director of Earth Day, at Earth Day Network, said.

The World Meteorological Organization announced last year that the first decade of the 21st century was the hottest on record for the entire planet. Organizers have asked participants in Earth Day 2013 to use Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (#FaceOfClimate) to spread awareness.

Will the Redwoods Rise Again?

In celebration of Earth Day, ceremonial plantings of two dozen clones from California’s mighty coastal redwoods will take place in seven nations: Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain, Ireland, Canada, Germany and the US.

“This is a first step toward mass production,” said David Milarch, co-founder of Archangel Ancient Tree Archive, a nonprofit group spearheading the project. “We need to reforest the planet; it’s imperative. To do that, it just makes sense to use the largest, oldest, most iconic trees that ever lived.”

Tiny Goes Big: InsideClimate News Wins Pulitizer Prize

Dwarfed by earlier winners, online publications ProPublica and Huffington Post, InsideClimate News with an editorial staff of just seven, won a Pulitzer Prize in journalism last week. Lisa Song, Elizabeth McGowan and David Hasemeyer led the investigative story about an undercovered oil spill in Michigan.

InsideClimate News particularly covers news as it relates to climate change, which executive editor Susan White calls “the biggest story of our time.” But in a year that the New York Times and other major newspapers are closing their environmental desks, it is also a coverage area that is increasingly neglected by conventional news organizations. “We may be the largest environmental desk in the country,” says publisher David Sassoon.

In the committee’s words, InsideClimate won for its “rigorous reports on flawed regulation of the nation’s oil pipelines, focusing on potential ecological dangers posed by diluted bitumen (or “dilbit”), a controversial form of oil,” – a topic no doubt newsworthy, considering the debate over the Keystone XL pipeline.

The World Observes Earth Hour | Eliot Spitzer Replaces Olbermann | Contraception & Women's Earnings

Daily French Roast

Anne is reading …

Keith Olbermann Fired!

Current TV would never have Anne at 8pm, because she has never been a fan of Keith Olbermann’s style of journalism. Disliking Olbermann so much, we never knew that Jennifer Granholm had a show after the loudmouth, confrontational guy who can’t seem to get along with anyone on TV.

In an accidental interception last night, we had the pleasure of watching former New York Governor/former CNN show anchor Eliot Spitzer, who replaced the fired Olbermann Friday night in his new home on Current TV. Learning about Granholm is a real problem for we who actually own the url RachelMaddowWomen.com.

It appears that Olbermann has had nothing but problems with Current’s low-rent startup culture.

Current TV founders Al Gore and Joel Hyatt said in a letter to viewers that they decided to cut bait because the relationship no longer represented “the values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers.” via Washington Post

Eliot Spitzer is one of the finest minds on television. Anne was truly bereft when his information-rich CNN shoe ‘In the Arena’ was cancelled. Sorry Ed Show, we’re outta here.

As for Olbermann, The Hollywood Reporter reports that Olbermann is scheduled to appear on ‘The Late Show with David Letterman’ Tuesday, April 3.

How Access to the Pill Boosted Women’s Wages Live Science

“As the pill provided younger women the expectation of greater control over childbearing, women invested more in their human capital and careers,” study researcher Martha Bailey, an economist at the University of Michigan, said in a statement. “Most affected were women with some college, who benefitted from these investments through remarkable wage gains over their lifetimes.”

Earth Hour

The year’s Earth Hour will be the largest ever, with 5,411 cities and towns, and 147 countries taking part. Earth Hour, the environmentally symbolic annual switch-off of lights for one hour this Saturday night, is to extend into space this year, with the International Space Station taking part for the first time, writes The Guardian.

Launched in 2007 only in Sydney, initially as an energy-saving measure, the hour has spread internationally and become a symbolic event to encourage environmental action and awareness. It is a rolling hour at 8.30-9.30pm across the world on 31 March. Despite the event’s high profile, it has also drawn criticism, including from green campaigners. George Marshall, founder of the Climate Outreach Information Network, has previously written in the Guardian that it sends out the wrong message. “Asking people to sit in the dark plays very well to a widely held prejudice that “the greens” want us all to go back to living in caves,” he said.

ReutersClimate Change Comes to GM

Atlantic Wire reports that General Motors has pulled its $15,000 annual funding from the climate-change-skeptical Heartland Institute. The gesture is largely symbolic given the institute’s multiple billions, writes The Guardian. Former vice-chairman Bob Lutz once called the scientific arguments around climate change “a total crock of shit.”

To clarify, The Guardian writes that the GM donation of 20 years wasn’t earmarked for advocacy against climate change. But the connections have become too complex to explain to the general public.

Pesticides & Bees

Scientists have discovered ways in which even low doses of widely-used pesticides can harm bumblebees and honeybees. The pesticides interfere with the bees’ homing abilities, causing them to lose their way reports Reuters.
