It's easy to feel pessimistic about the climate. But we've got two big things on our side We are staggering and stumbling towards the real follow-up to Paris, starting 31 October in Glasgow. The international order, such as it is, is held together with baling wire and duct tape.

Climate activists are being killed for trying to save our planet. There is a way to help That we have to fight simply to get our leaders to pay attention to science is frustrating, but there's a big difference between fighting and dying: the names of these activists should be on our lips and in our hearts. We owe them debts that can't be repaid -- only paid forward.

Are We Finally Ready to Tackle the Other Greenhouse Gas? I've long felt that one of my great failings as a climate communicator has come in trying to get across the dangers posed by methane, the second most damaging greenhouse gas, after carbon dioxide. Despite long years of many people trying to underscore the risks of methane, our go-to shorthand for climate pollution remains "carbon."

No, Alberta, Don't Be Sad. We Love You. Really. Lay aside for the moment the devastation caused by mining the sludgy tar sands for oil. There's no way that a country with less than one percent of the world's population can lay claim to more than a quarter of the atmosphere. Alberta started feeling pressure with the battle over the Keystone XL pipeline, which would have run from the tar sands to the Gulf of Mexico.

We Need the "Whole-of-Government" Climate Fight That Biden Promised It's frightening, both for what feels like a rapid acceleration in the pace of the planet's heating and for what feels like a slowdown in a few key corners of the Biden Administration's attempts to take its measure.
