Bill McKibben, one of the disappointed last month after a group he helped lead came up short in getting the White House to go solar, has his happy face on today.

“The White House did the right thing, and for the right reasons: they listened to the Americans who asked for solar on their roof, and they listened to the scientists and engineers who told them this is the path to the future,” McKibben said in a statement. “If it has anything like the effect of the White House garden, it could be a trigger for a wave of solar installations across the country and around the world.

“Obama’s not the only world leader taking the challenge,” McKibben added. “Tomorrow Maldivian president Mohammed Nasheed will install panels on his official residence, and on Sunday 7000 communities around the world will engage in similar projects.”

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
