This wind turbine will power your apartment without keeping you up at night

At five feet wide, it might not exactly fit on your Brooklyn fire escape. But it's a lot quieter than most turbines/randy apartment neighbors (We're talking to you, unit 309).

H&M gets slightly less evil, recycles your clothes into new jeans

Is H&M demonstrating its long-term Commitment to Sustainability or trying to make you forget that clothes-shredding scandal?

You’ve earned it: Here’s a supercut of the funniest climate change videos

Let The Onion, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Tina Fey, Al Gore, and even Will Ferrell as George Dubya distract you from our self-inflicted planetary incineration.

Car Stalk

Meet “Traffic Droid,” the cycling superhero who calls out bad drivers

That’s WAY better than shooting a web outta your wrists or smashing things with a giant hammer.

The week in GIFs: Jesus and Joseph Gordon-Levitt

And a goat thrown in for good measure.

Simply knock a hole in your ceiling (your landlady won’t mind), throw some glass up there, add some bungee cords, and voila!

Food

Climate & Energy

Your family feud is more likely to be about global warming than guns or abortion

Does life start when a sperm high-fives an egg, or do they have to make out? Who cares? Climate change is WAY more fun to argue about!
