How to choose and save seeds for a changing climate

Eight hundred miles from the North Pole, on a remote Arctic island, there is a vault. Its steel gray entrance juts out of the snow, a sharp preview of tunnels that run deep into the mountain. Armed guards with black guns patrol the premises. What’s inside? Seeds. | Read more
 
Cut greenhouse gas pollution, change a life
 
In Siaya and Bondo, Kenya, gathering water is an all-day affair. Families walk to collect it from the muddy Yala River. They also have to find wood, a scarce resource. Then they must boil the water, producing greenhouse gases and, in many cases, indoor air pollution.
 
The Hydraid® BioSand water filter changes lives. It cleans water with no need for wood, electricity, or replacement parts. Since it eliminates the need to burn wood to boil and purify water, it also reduces emissions. By purchasing NativeEnergy Help Build™ carbon offsets, you will provide upfront funding for these filters. | Read more
 
Generation Climate: Middlebury debates divesting from fossil fuels
 
"Generation Climate" is a blog series that gives voice to those who will experience the brunt of climate change: young people. Cailin Sullivan, a NativeEnergy intern from Middlebury College, contributed this post.
 
On January 20, environmental journalist and 350.org founder Bill McKibben concluded his national college divestment tour in the Old Chapel of Middlebury College, the school where McKibben and many other founders began discussing and organizing around the issue of global climate change. Backdropped by the chapel’s bronze organ pipes and with a howling Vermont wind beating on the windows, McKibben spoke to a crowd of students, faculty, activists, and skeptics. | Read more
 
Climate and Crampons: Outdoor Industry protects its most valuable asset
 
In Salt Lake City—where I attended the Outdoor Industry Association’s Sustainable Working Group meetings—I ran on the treadmill instead of facing the inverted air. That seems a contradictory choice for exercise in a city notable for being a gateway to outdoor activity. Throughout my visit, the dirty air was a little jab in my ribs: find partners, find ways to build more innovative projects to match these multi-dimensional pollution challenges that are here and now. How can we act faster, bigger, and better? | Read more
 
Chevy tackles climate change
 
In 2010, our friends at Chevrolet announced that they were embarking on their Carbon Reduction Initiative, an effort to invest $40 million in carbon offset projects across the country with the goal of reducing up to 8 million metric tonnes of CO2 emissions. The program includes wind, landfill-gas-to-energy, solar, efficiency, and conservation projects.    
 
NativeEnergy is providing carbon offsets to the intiative through Bonneville Environmental Foundation. | Read more
