We don’t mean to brag, but Earth Day is coming up, and we’ve got this whole reducing- carbon-emissions thing wrapped up.

To the Inhabitants of Planet Earth: Happy Holidays and a Joyous 2017

Happy Holidays from

2016 has been quite a year, with highs, lows and more shock value than anyone anticipated. With all that’s happened, most of us feel like a holiday is long overdue — but this year, let’s do one thing before we leave. Let's make it a point to embrace a global perspective on who we are and where we're going.

So, imagine we’re part of one human race, with its countless unique expressions of identity. Imagine we are one family, all spinning together on a little rock in a tiny galaxy in an infinite universe. Sure, we have our differences. Families always do. But as another calendar year draws to a close, let's choose to remember what brings us together. Read More...
