Urgency Network You’ve already lived on Earth, now trying vacationing above it. Starting today, support the Earth Day Network (or another of the participating charities) and you could visit friggin’ outer space.
Years of Living Dangerously The Showtime series documenting climate change and natural disasters collaborated with Symbolia to create comics on climate change. It’s cool. Too cool. Second coming of the ice age cool. Which isn’t cool at all.
NRDC Natural Resources Defense Council’s mission is to safeguard the Earth and everything that inhabits this crazy floating rock. Follow to watch them call out the FDA and politicos alike.

If Earth’s water were drained into a single drop, it would measure about 950 miles in diameter. Roughly three percent is fresh water, and just one-third of that is easily accessible. Meeting the growing need for water is a critical challenge. Many countries rely on desalination to produce fresh water, but current techniques are typically energy-intensive, using enough energy globally to power nearly seven million homes. That’s why today GE is launching an open innovation challenge to improve the energy efficiency of water desalination. Find out more about the challenge here.

GE you put that water back right now, you hear me? We need that.
