As you all (probably) know, yesterday was Earth Day, so that will be the focus of today’s stories.

Check out the trailer for a fascinating new documentary called Earth: The Operator’s Guide, done by Dr. Richard Alley, a climate scientist from Penn State University. In it he brings a wide range of people on both sides of the political sphere that show their concern for climate change and support for energy conservation and renewable energy sourcing.

2. “Scientists to world leaders: You broke it, you own it”

Scientists convening at a conference are calling ecosystem health “the defining challenge of our age.” What do they think can save us? Technological innovations AND a cultural shift. It is going to take a collective effort, and there’s no better time to start then on Earth Day.

3. “5 Pieces of Good News From Planet Earth”
