We have 35 years to move to completely renewable carbon-free energy sources. With a clear goal and continued focus, it may just be possible to avert environmental collapse. 
 
Scientists zero in on only solution to climate crisis

Panel of international climate scientists says the world has only until 2050 to become a zero-carbon society − but the rewards for doing so would be immense.

LONDON, 22 April, 2015 – If you want to know what we have to do to avoid catastrophic climate change, 17 of the world’s leading climate scientists have worked out a simple but challenging solution: the world, they say, must turn by mid-century into a zero-carbon society.

The signatories to today’s “Earth Statement” say: “This trajectory is not one of economic pain, but of economic opportunity, progress and inclusiveness. It is a chance too good to be missed.

“The latest science indicates that there are critical thresholds in the Earth system. Transgressing them may lead to dramatic and irreversible environmental changes.

“We are probably edging very close to such thresholds, and may already have crossed one with regard to melting of parts of Antarctica. Sea-level rise of more than one metre due to this event alone may be inevitable.”

Energy-saving tips from Curb:
-Get an AC tune up before the summer heat hits.
-Switch your bulbs! LEDs use 2/3rds less power, produce great light, and can last 20 years!
-Unplug unused computer chargers if they are warm to the touch.

I'll never buy another Nestle product as long as I live. 
Nestlé backed up that statement with this ruthless move at the World Water Forum.

We have a few more weeks to make a very loud noise regarding #section215  of the #patriotact  before Congress votes whether to extend the governments ability to continue #unwarranted   #spying  on all electronic communications in the United States. 
Join me. Tell Congress that it's time to end the NSA's unconstitutional mass surveillance under the Patriot Act. https://fight215.org

Deny this. NOAA's monthly temperature data show the Earth's climate warming over 135 years, animated here in less than 30 seconds.

Fracking is essentially another "bubble" and won't last beyond a few years. 

Now you know why OPEC increased oil production to 10.3 million barrels a day. It's time to get off of oil and coal as quickly as possible.

The GDG North America t-shirt design is currently in 3rd place. We need a lot more +1's to win. Please +1 and reshare. Thanks!
 
As Google I/O quickly approaches we are hard at work getting everything ready for a great I/O Extended.

A few days before I/O for the past few years a huge gathering of GDG Organizers from all over the world takes places in Mountain View. Every year there is an awesome shirt design that wins. This year GDG Chicago is proud to be able to put up a shirt design.

If we win I'll have some of these shirts to give away to the people of GDG Chicago. So +1 this if you like free shirts! +1 this if you like the awesome design +Virginia Poltrack created! or just simple +1 this post!

The more +1's we get on this post the better off we are so please reshare and ask others to +1 this post as well.

The Ale House has good food and a great selection of local and regional craft beers. John, the owner, is an exceptionally nice guy and genuinely cares about his patrons. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is a mix of artsy, sports bar and night club all in one to provide something for everyone. They have live bands or DJ's most weekend nights with ping pong, tables and corn hole in the outside area which make for a lively nightlife. Definitely a top three food and drink destination in Black Mtn.

I joined the Spartanburg Planet Fitness with the $20/mo. membership ($1 sign up fee) on a 1-year commitment, and am extremely pleased with my decision. The atmosphere is very casual, almost like an exercise "bar" with a row of TVs in the middle to enjoy while using the treadmill or eliptical machines. There are stations for abs, legs/back, and full body as well as free weights (all self-contained with safety guards and self-spotting locks) and resistance machines for every muscle group. They're open 24/7 with a trainer available 8am-6pm. The $20/mo. membership includes access to the massage and tanning area with both chair and water massage as well as multiple tanning booths and a Beauty Angel booth for skin tone and relaxation. With all of these services at only $20/mo. ($10/mo. membership available as well w/o guest or massage/tanning privileges), there really is no excuse not to join a gym. I absolutely love it and am planning to go at least 3 times/week for a loooong time!

Excellent Thai cuisine but a bit pricey. The Thai Red Curry is very good though the number 5 isn't hot enough. The tofu soup is bland and the salads are small but the ginger sauce is very fresh. Lunch price is from $8-11 per plate.

Frisbee golf course, hiking trails, three soccer/football fields, four tennis courts, and a large playground make this the premier park in Spartanburg county. If it had a basketball court it would be perfect!

Easily the best bakery in Black Mountain. Their cakes, pastries, and breads are all excellent. The biscuits are the size of a small plate and amazing! Be sure to try the biscuit with shitake mushroom gravy.

Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Parking is limited, but we were seated right away at lunch time. The gyros is excellent. The mushrooms and hummus appetizers were wonderful. Or waiter was fast and extremely pleasant. Limited beer selection with no local beers.
