The movement toward starting greener, more sustainable, businesses isn’t new, because ecopreneurs have been making waves in the sustainable business world long before the word sustainable was used to describe them, but taking an existing business, especially a big one, and transforming it a company that values and supports environmental stewardship is something of a […]

Cowspiracy Reveals Inconvenient Truth about the Most Destructive Industry on the Planet

What’s the most destructive industry facing our planet today? You can be forgiven for thinking it’s fossil fuel production and consumption, with all of its attendant pollution and GHG emissions, along with its destructive extraction processes and the all-too-frequent oil spills in our oceans and waterways, because most environmental organizations focus on that. However, according […]

Operation Cleantech pt 3: America the Loser

In part three of Operation Cleantech, Future360 asks everyday Americans how it feels like to lose. While trying not to get punched in the face in the process. America has always been a world leader. We put man on the moon. We invented flight, light and the iPad. But when it comes to cleantech, we’re trailing behind the rest of the world.

Crowdfunding Platform: Preserve Pah Tempe's Healing Waters

Pah Tempe’s mineral water, which everyone else recognizes as sacred and healing, is referred to by the local county water district as, incredibly, a *pollutant* which they feel needs to be captured and ‘disposed of’ somewhere out in the desert. For them, this requires condemning and closing the property on which these precious hot springs sit. This outcome has been their consistent goal for many years, despite a worldwide (and local) fan base, and clear scientific consensus on the amazing biological uniqueness and diversity of fish in that exact section of the river, now made endangered by the diversion of water in the name of development.

Crowdfunding Platform: Fracking Puts Colorado's Organic Farmers Under Seige

We should be growing our own food! All of us should; as a society why did we stop? Our agricultural construct is a problem everyone refuses to acknowledge because we like bananas in Colorado or we want oranges in the winter. We don’t think about the fact that those tropical fruits came from…well, the tropics. Importing and exporting and transporting food is expensive, especially because it’s something we need daily and always.
want to share a video with you that’s very special to me and everyone who worked on it because it marks the beginning of an incredible journey. This is the first teaser we put together for Holy Terror; before gas drilling was even an issue in the North Fork Valley. We fell in love with an inspirational tale on a breathtakingly beautiful farm in the Rockies:

The High Price of Materialism: Would Eco-Entrepreneurs Encourage "Buying Less"?

In The High Price of Materialism, Tim Kasser offers a scientific explanation of how our contemporary culture of consumerism and materialism affects our everyday happiness and psychological health. Other writers have shown that once we have sufficient food, shelter, and clothing, further material gains do little to improve our well-being. Kasser goes beyond these findings to investigate how people’s materialistic desires relate to their well-being. He shows that people whose values center on the accumulation of wealth or material possessions face a greater risk of unhappiness, including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and problems with intimacy—regardless of age, income, or culture.

Climate Change Casualty: No Maple Syrup by 2100?

It is ironic to me that fighting climate change and employing sustainable energy sources is seen as a major hindrance to jobs and the economy, while there is more evidence everyday that rising temperatures have the capability to wipe out entire industries and livelihood for millions. And who is telling us this – politicians, lobbyists and special interest groups for Big Oil who obviously do not want alternatives to fossil fuels. Who do you think climate change affects the most? Small business owners and communities that depend on nature’s bountiful resources -like the tourism industry or fisheries. People like Martha Carlson.

Al Gore to Reinforce Climate Change Reality in 24 Hours on September 14

What can happen in a day?

A lot, says Al Gore. Catastraphic storms, forest fires, landslides and more. But what can also happen is a ‘Climate Reality Project’, (CRP, formerly Alliance for Climate Protection) that can bring the facts about the climate crisis into the mainstream and engage the public in conversation about how to solve it. This project is Al Gore’s latest global campaign to bring the reality of the climate crisis back into focus.
