Tragedy beyond words at the Camp Street prison

Jul 10, 2017 Features / Columnists, Freddie Kissoon 

 What is a central prison doing in the heart of the city? Before we answer that let’s reason about the dark side of human nature. Convicts at age 30 are sentenced to eighty years in prison without chances of parole. Such persons would be willing to take heavy risks. They feel their lives are over and they will do desperate things. Why retain such persons in the central prison right in the heart of the capital?    Continue reading

Three Worlds One Vision

UCS - Clean Energy is Sweeping the Nation

Over the past decade, wind power expanded more than tenfold, supplying energy to more than 20 million households in 41 states. Since 2011, solar power has sprinted ahead with more than 900 percent in growth. In 2016, two million more households now use solar-powered electricity.

That’s not all. Investments in energy efficiency, over the last 25 years, have reduced our need for constructing more than 300 large carbon-emitting power plants. Last year alone, we saved a year’s worth of electricity usage of 20 million households.
