Will Humanity Survive? By Joe Simonetta
GMOs (or “genetically modified organisms”)
are organisms that have been created through the gene-splicing
techniques of biotechnology (also called genetic engineering,
or GE). This relatively new science allows DNA from one species
to be injected into another species in a laboratory, creating
combinations of plant, animal, bacteria, and viral genes that
do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding

The Energy Solution Revolution by Dr. Brian O"Leary
Half of the world's poor
suffer from waterborne disease, and nearly 6,000 people -
mainly children - die each day by consuming unsafe drinking
water. LifeStraw® water purifiers have been developed
as a practical way of preventing disease and saving lives,
as well as achieving the Millennium Development Goal of reducing
by one-half the proportion of people without sustainable access
to safe water by the year 2015.
Global Green- A Community Outreach Program for Leaders
Global Green seeks to bridge the information
gap between weak environmental practices and green practices
in the workplace to encourage the transition into sustainable
practices. While the Green movement has gained more attention,
most businesses do not have an initiative on how to implement
this into the work place. This initiative, Global Green,
will match companies with available green resources and educate
them on better environmental practices. Read
The restart is the first allowed under Japan's Nuclear Regulation Authority post-Fukushima reformed safety rules. Sendai had been shut down in May 2011, shortly after the Fukushima nuclear catastorphe began, and has not operated since, till now.Although the restart may mark a "victory" for the pro-nuclear Prime Minister Abe administration, it is a loss for public health, safety, and the environment. Abe's insistence on disregarding 2 to 1 opposition to the restart amongst the Japanese public may someday cost him and his party at the polls, as well. Read More
Why Can't We Use Our Own Stem Cells to Heal Our Bodies? by Berkley Bedell, former Congressman
About every one hundred years there is a new medical paradigm shift in medical care.Today the discovery of the body's own repair and regeneration system – autologous adult stem cells – represents an equally incredible discovery.This relatively new discovery of a healing system within the body opens up a whole new vision for treating disease. We all have a banking facility for autologous (the patient's own) stem cells within our bodies in our bone marrow, fat, and other areas. As needed, these cells are called upon to heal injuries or insults within.The FDA's Tissue Reference Group (TRG) has in fact sent letters to physicians performing adipose cell transfers, stating that even if they process these cells during the same surgical procedure in their offices with no culture involved, the practice is still creating a new drug. The importance of ending the efforts of the FDA to oversee the practice of medicine and return the FDA focus to issues it has jurisdiction over cannot be overstated. Read More.
Plastic Pollution Coalition
Plastic is a material that Earth cannot digest. Every bit of plastic ever produced still exists and will be here with us for hundreds of years. Once in the environment, plastic breaks down into smaller and smaller particles that attract toxic chemicals, are ingested by wildlife on land and in the ocean, and contaminate our food chain.
Our oceans and waterways are full of these small particles, which currents accumulate in convergence zones called gyres, located in the center of the word’s oceans. The most notable of these is called “the Great Pacific Garbage Patch,” but while the idea of a giant patch of garbage in the ocean is unsettling, the reality is more so: a planetary soup of small bits of plastic that circulate throughout the water column and which we have no hope of cleaning up.Read More.
Stopping the use of plastic bags is just one of their goals. Plastic Pollution Coalition is a global alliance of individuals, businesses and organizations working together to end plastic pollution and its toxic impacts on people, animals, the ocean, and the environment. Visit their website.

Even as concern over climate change and energy Let security fuel a boom in solar technology, many still think of solar as a twentieth-century wonder. Few realize that the first photovoltaic array appeared on a New York City rooftop in 1884, or that brilliant engineers in France were using solar power in the 1860s to run steam engines, or that in 1901 an ostrich farmer in Southern California used a single solar engine to irrigate three hundred acres of citrus trees. Fewer still know that Leonardo da Vinci planned to make his fortune by building half-mile-long mirrors to heat water, or that the Bronze Age Chinese used hand-sized solar-concentrating mirrors to light fires the way we use matches and lighters today.
With thirteen new chapters, Let It Shine is a fully revised and expanded edition of A Golden Thread, Perlin’s classic history of solar technology, detailing the past forty years of technological developments driving today’s solar renaissance. This unique and compelling compendium of humankind’s solar ideas tells the fascinating story of how our predecessors throughout time, again and again, have applied the sun to better their lives — and how we can too.
Australian scientists announce solar energy breakthrough
AFP. Australian scientists said Monday they had made a breakthrough in increasing the efficiency of solar panels, which they hope could eventually lead to cheaper sources of renewable energy. In what the University of New South Wales described as a world first, the researchers were able to convert more than 40 percent of sunlight hitting the panels into electricity. Read More.
Abandoned U.S. oil wells still spewing methane, study finds
By Richard Valdmanis BOSTON (Reuters) - Some of the millions of abandoned oil and natural gas wells in the United States are still spewing methane, marking a potentially large source of unrecorded greenhouse gas emissions, according to a study released on Monday.
Researchers at Princeton University measured emissions from dozens of abandoned wells in Pennsylvania in 2013 and 2014 and found they were emitting an average of 0.27 kg (0.6 lbs) of methane per day, according to the study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.Read More.
Disrupting Cancer Care
By Matthew Sherper.
Soon-Shiong is rolling out a series of companies that represent a $1 billion-plus effort to fight cancer in new ways. This includes buying DNA sequencers to unravel the DNA of cancer patients, not in a clinical trial but as standard practice, at an unprecedented scale. (Really, read that story, which I worked on for months, before you read this one, for which I had hours.)
“I’m incredibly encouraged to say that we are on the path,” Soon-Shiong told 60 Minutes’ Sanjay Gupta. “And the technology to actually do all these things is not just hypothetical.”Patrick Soon-Shiong, the richest doctor in the world, and Blackberry Chief Executive John Chen made some news at Thursday’s Forbes Healthcare Summit, revealing a new app that will allow doctors to review a cancer patient’s genes on a Blackberry phone. Soon-Shiong also announced that we should expect an initial public offering of one of his companies, NantHealth, next year, and that he plans to use the proceeds in part to create a charitable trust like the U.K.’s Wellcome Trust, which was created using wealth generated by pharmaceutical giant Borroughs-Wellcome, which is now part of GlaxoSmithKline.Read More.

Alternatively Cured:The Doctors that are Leading the Way
Many doctors are embracing the holistic perspective and their numbers are growing. Their very important medical training has had little focus on nutrition and holistic treatments. The marriage of these two schools of thought has begun and must be embraced without the greed of commercialization. Doctors should not have to risk ridicule or loss of licensure for recommending or supporting patients that choose for themselves alternative treatments. Patients should not feel belittled or discriminated against for their personal choices to participate in alternatives or to abstain from conventional treatments. Read More

SBU Study Reveals Harmful Effects of CFL Bulbs to Skin
Harmful effects from CFL cannot be denied. Inspired by a European study, a team of Stony Brook University researchers looked into the potential impact of healthy human skin tissue (in vitro) being exposed to ultraviolet rays emitted from compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. The results, “The Effects of UV Emission from CFL Exposure on Human Dermal Fibroblasts and Keratinocytes in Vitro,” were published in the June issue of the journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology.Read More.
