Surfrider Foundation slathers naked girls in oil... for a good cause

Look, we all hated the BP oil spill that happened last year — it was one of the worst environmental disasters in American history. It was a natural abomination, a gut-wrenching illustration of greed, corner-cutting and lack of accountability, and finally got that stupid Palin drone to drop the “Drill, baby, drill!” refrain from popping [...]

Jeff Waldman elicits joy and plans for swings elsewhere

Sex, drugs and rock & roll. Debauchery. Hugh Grant transvestite hookers. Talentless reality celebrities. Purse dogs with health insurance. These are the things that everyone thinks LA is all about.

Six national parks, 11 national reserves, 26 conservation priority sites, 16 wetlands and 32 private protected areas are set to be decimated, all in the name of energy. That amounts to roughly 6,000 hectares or 60 square kilometers of land. That’s bigger than the Vatican City, Monaco and Bermuda combined. The Chileans have fought against [...]

Charles Moore draws attention to the growing, choking problem of plastic debris in our seas for TED

We touched on this epic plastic dilemma facing the Planet Earth a couple years back when we covered photographer Chris Jordan’s Midway: Message from the Gyre in 2009, but it doesn’t get any less scary. We have a serious, serious fucked up problem with our consumption of plastics, and if nothing changes we can just [...]

There are a lot of ways to help to help out our cultural brothers and sisters over in Japan, but here’s another good one.
