Check it out. What do you think? Keeping in mind where they started, is Fox News slowly meandering down the right path?
Maybe it was this hugely popular video that finally shook their heads a bit.
The New Economics Foundation has found that reducing social inequality and energy consumption is crucial to improved well being, not increased consumption.
While Europe’s carbon emissions have risen markedly over the last 40 years, the report says, the extra burning has not made people happier.
