Thu., 7/15 - Underserved communities could miss out on the benefits of electric vehicles: Only a few states and utilities are working to ensure that charging infrastructure is deployed equitably.

Fri., 7/16 - Environmentalist drag queen says the outdoors belongs to everyone: Pattie Gonia is using social media to spread awareness about climate change and other environmental issues.

Mon., 7/19 - Coral reefs prevent more than $1.8 billion a year in U.S. flood damage: But climate change and habitat destruction threaten reefs and their ability to offer this protection.

Tue., 7/27 - Heat waves pose extra dangers to people experiencing homelessness: It’s hard to stay cool when you must spend many hours outdoors.

Wed., 7/28 - How to keep groceries and the planet cool: Many older refrigerators contain potent heat-trapping gases, so they must be recycled properly.

Thu., 7/29 - Sea-level rise rates more than double along part of East Coast: Melting glacial ice and warming oceans are the biggest causes of this change.

Fri., 7/30 - Households waste more than 500 million metric tons of food each year: That’s more than is wasted in restaurants and grocery stores combined.

Mon., 8/2 - Maritime shipping causes more carbon pollution than airlines: Fossil-fuel-burning ships transport a vast amount of cargo across the world’s oceans each year.

Tue., 8/3 - Indigenous rancher stewards the land: Kelsey Ducheneaux-Scott uses regenerative grazing to mimic the impact that bison once had on the Great Plains.

Wed., 8/4 - Deep sea trawling unleashes carbon from the ocean floor: Sediments at the bottom of the ocean store more carbon than all the soil on Earth.

Thu., 8/5 - Older adults face higher risk of heat-related illnesses: Chronic health problems like diabetes or heart disease increase their vulnerability to heat-related illnesses.

Fri., 8/6 - Allergy season is now more than a week longer, thanks to climate change: Rising carbon dioxide levels also make plants produce more pollen.
