Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP (www.kaplanfox.com) filed a federal class action law suit against Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. ("Chipotle" or the "Company"), on behalf of all California consumers who purchased food products from Chipotle between April 27, 2015 and the present. The lawsuit alleges that Chipotle's marketing and advertising campaign that claims its menu does not contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is actually deceptive and misleading to consumers because many of Chipotle's menu items actually do contain GMOs.
Cathryn Wellner's insight:
I wish I could be surprised by this, but with GMO ingredients ubiquitous in North American foods, the claim of offering all GMO-free foods stretches belief. This is aside from health and environmental issues that may be related to this kind of genetic tinkering and chemical-dependent agriculture. It's time consumers insist the companies they deal with be trustworthy.
Twenty-one young people from around the country filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration on Tuesday accusing the federal government of violating their rights by contributing to climate change through
The messages we are offering, like President Obama’s opening speech at GLACIER, are incredibly powerful so why is public understanding of this consensus still so low?

This presents a serious challenge to the most important outcome of Paris 2015 — moving forward on public policy action.
This spring, Myers et al (2015) published a paper empirically examining this disagreement over the level of agreement and offered a fairly straightforward solution to improving public understanding: KISS.
Keep It Short & Simple Some of you may be familiar with this acronym. I’m obviously embellishing the author’s message, but it’s more or less the same.
It turns out that melting glaciers are having more of an impact on the Antarctic than previously thought. Researchers have found that the nutrient-rich meltwater is actually nourishing the ocean food chain, creating feeding hotspots.
Is the practice of civil disobedience justified, in regard to climate change? Unlike war and racism, the effects of global warming are neither clear nor immediate -- though in fact the danger is quickly becoming clearer, as California dries up and wild fires run through the West.
Cathryn Wellner's insight:
Well said, Marilyn Sewell. "Civil disobedience is typically practiced when injustice is widespread and intransigent, and when laws and lawmakers are not responding to the moral sensibility of the people. It is not only a legitimate form of protest, but sometimes it is the only remaining source of protest."
