And now the news

The greenest bird
If you're like the vast majority of Americans, you're looking forward to gorging yourself on turkey this Thursday. But what if you're an eco-minded poultry lover—what kind of bird should you serve?

EPA finalizes carbon capture and sequestration rules
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency finalized two rules related to the capture and sequestration of carbon dioxide. Countries around the world are pursuing carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technologies in an effort to keep greenhouse gas emissions from entering the atmosphere. However there are serious concerns about the economic viability and safety of CCS.

CDP issues first water disclosure report
The Carbon Disclosure Project has issued their first Water Disclosure Report since sending their preliminary questionnaire to over 300 companies in April, finding that water has climbed quickly on the corporate agenda and identifies Colgate-Palmolive, Ford, PG&E and GE as leaders in the field of water management. Of the responding companies, 60% have set water-related performance targets. View the report.

Global CO2 emissions increased in 2010
During the heart of the recession in 2009, CO2 emissions fell as economic activity slowed. Now that the world is seeing modest signs at recovery, the pace of economic activity has picked up and so have the CO2 emissions. According to a new study, the planet may reach record levels of emissions by the end of the year.

The end isn't near: A better way to spur action on climate change
Environmental activists are learning to change their tone with the public, opting for less doom and gloom. Research has found that communicating messages in less apocalyptic ways, while offering and explaining solutions, can help the skittish process and accept the information more constructively.

Philadelphia Eagles will take stadium off grid with renewable power
The NFL's Philadelphia Eagles announced a plan to power Lincoln Financial Field with a combination of on-site wind, solar and dual-fuel generated electricity, making it the world's first major sports stadium to convert completely to on-site power.  The Eagles estimate that over the 20-year horizon, the on-site energy sources at Lincoln Financial Field will provide 1.039 billion kilowatt hours of electricity enabling an estimated 4MW of excess energy off-peak to be sold back to the local electric grid.
