Watch Episode 1 of "Years of Living Dangerously," The New, Star-Studded Showtime Series on Climate Change: http://cultr.me/1sQAsUz
Ever since Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth came out to critical accolades, Conservative scorn and a handful of Oscars, there has been no shortage of well meaning documentaries about the perils of climate change.

Cadillac's recent ELR ad says that America is great because we work really hard so we can buy stuff, like Cadillacs. Ford's rebuttal is great.

World solar installations outpaced projections last year by a full gigawatt, landing at a solid 37 GW of clean energy progress. 2014 installations are expected to jump to 49 GW. Let's make it 50 for a nice round number!

The Bedol wall clock can keep perfect time for up to a year on a single fill with plain old tap water. To recharge? Dump it out and fill it up again. While a clock may not save the world, this could be the start of something great.

It's a race against time, but at least we're trying... 
 
The world is on a roll with solar! Last year, the world's solar power capacity increased by 35%, a total of 37,007 MW. The top 3 solar installers were China (11.3 GW), Japan (6.9 GW) and the US (4.8). Nice.

Good for China to really kick it into gear!

Thinking about getting at least one of these immediately. 

Remember, water = energy... 
 
The dual flush toilet is a great way to use less water. Not every country has caught on yet though, so here's a cheap way to upgrade: the Tap-n-Flush. This clever little device converts any water guzzler into a precise water saver, and can save you as much as $100/year on your water bill. That's a win/win!

2013 was another solid year for solar power in the US, with 4.75 GW of solar energy systems installed. That made solar the second largest source of new electricity generation last year, behind natural gas. Coal accounted for only 10% of new energy. Yay!

Moving to 100% renewable energy can seem like a daunting task given our current reliance on fossil fuels. The Solutions Project has created a roadmap for all 50 states, with an info graphic explaining the benefits to each state. How will your state make the switch?
