Greenpeace on Tuesday accused a logging company of misusing federal anti-racketeering laws to attack environmental groups that criticize its logging in North America’s largest forest. “This is a completely inappropriate remedy,” Greenpeace attorney Laura Handman said during a motion to dismiss hearing Tuesday. “[RICO] was originally designed to

China’s coal-to-chemical industry could produce CO2 emissions in excess of 400 million tons a year by the end of the decade — a more than fourfold increase from the 90 million emitted in 2015. Coal-to-chemical projects, which convert coal to other chemical properties, including oil and gas, are extremely carbon intensive, accounting for roughly

Latin American Scientists Say Bill Gates’ GMO Golden Rice Is A Total Failure

‘Golden Rice,’ a highly touted Gates Foundation experiment has been proven to be deceptive in its claims to help feed the world and stop Vitamin A deficits in poor populations.

Mothers and children display painted baby tubs which they themselves designed during a protest on World Environment Day Wednesday June 5, 2013 at suburban Quezon city northeast of Manila, Philippines.

Nobel Laureates who have been pushing the genetically modified organism agenda deep into scientific circles are being lambasted by a group called the Union of Latin American Scientists Committed to Society and Nature (UCCSN-AL). A whopping third of Nobel laureates recently slammed Greenpeace for its anti-GM campaign, claiming that the issues
