Mining in Michigan - The Sky Sisters

** New post by Regan​ **

We had a new post go up over the weekend, our first guest post! Take a moment to learn a bit about yet another extractive project up for approval that puts fresh water — this time of our own Lake Michigan — at risk. Take a few minutes to learn about it. Can we take a step back to consider what we can do to alter the need for these destructive projects? Can you lend the Menominee tribe your support?

GDI – The Sky Sisters

**New post from Jennifer**
My independence was honed from a vagabond childhood. Could you find your inner independence too? Perhaps in this political climate we should reconnect with personal values for a while, then come back to rebuild together. The political party system needs an overhaul. Consider whether you really need an (R) or (D) affiliation as a citizen in this demented democracy. Could we get more done without it?

Posted on September 16, 2017September 16, 2017 by Jennifer LintonI’m a suburban girl, like millions across the land. My early childhood was spent in various (mostly western) suburbs of Chicago. My years were splintered into stints of various town/home/school combos, where we landed for a period of t...

Crossing Trump on climate, new Miss America fears no tweet

"I wasn't really afraid if my opinion wasn't the opinion of my judges," she said. "Miss America needs to have an opinion and she needs to know what's happening in the current climate."

On Trump exiting the Paris Accord: "It's a bad decision," she said. "There is evidence that climate change is existing and we need to be at that table." Way to represent, Ms. America.

Cara Mund is not worried that she may begin her year-long reign as Miss America by starting a Twitter war with the nation's Tweeter-In-Chief. The 23-year-old Miss North Dakota won the crown Sunday night in Atlantic City after saying in an onstage interview that President Donald Trump was...

The North Face

If you need a hat this winter...

Use conscious consumer power to support Climate Beneficial Wool. The North Face has launched the Cali Wool beanie to "warm your dome, not the globe" by keeping you cozy in fine Bare Ranch wool, where carbon farming practices draw down 4,068 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually. That's the equivalent of offsetting 865 passenger vehicles each year! These landscape management practices are made possible through supply chain partnerships that value Climate Beneficial materials.

Warm your dome (not the globe) with our Climate Beneficial wool beanie that was proudly made in the USA. The premium wool was sourced in partnership with Fibershed from Bare Ranch, which raises sheep using carbon farming practices that not only sequester more carbon dioxide than the ranch emits but also improve soil health. Bare Ranch’s carbon farming practices are expected to sequester 4,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide each year. This amount of sequestered carbon dioxide is equivalent to offsetting the emissions from about 850 passenger vehicles a year. We believe that a hyper-local, climate conscious approach to sheep ranching can reshape our relationship with our land.

Check out the beanie here: http://bit.ly/2f6zoz5

Neil deGrasse Tyson on President Trump And Living Under a 'Science Hostile' Administration

From one of our favorite scientists, Neil deGrasse Tyson: "If someone doesn’t understand science, it’s at least partly due to “some failure in the education system. These are full grown, college educated adults saying these things and thinking these things, so we’ve got to go back and fix it. Otherwise, we’ll just fade.”

And what to do about it.
