Behind the Scenes at Animal PlanetMother Jones Jan 21, 2014My exclusive investigation into Animal Planet's top show Call of the Wildman, revealed "numerous cases of alleged animal mistreatment and possible infringement of state and federal law," and "evidence of a production culture that tolerated legally and ethically dubious activities, including using an animal that had been drugged with sedatives, in contravention of federal rules; directing trappers to procure wild animals to be 'caught' again as part of a script, and wrongly filling out legal documents detailing the crew's wildlife activities for Kentucky officials." Read the investigation in full here.

47 Percent: Romney on Obama VotersMother Jones, Sep 17, 2012: Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney told a small group of wealthy contributors what he truly thinks of all the voters who support President Barack Obama. He dismissed these Americans as freeloaders who pay no taxes, who don't assume responsibility for their lives, and who think government should take care of them. Get the full story here.

Climb Aboard NASA's Biggest Flying LaboratoryClimate Desk, Sep 3, 2013: One of the biggest question marks hanging over climate studies right now is about the role of clouds and the aerosols, tiny airborne particles, that shape them. The problem is clouds move fast, making them hard to model, and depending on their concentration at different altitudes, clouds can cool or heat the planet. Scientists agree that before they can build the best models to predict climate change, they first have to understand clouds.This summer, NASA has been working to crack this problem, at 30,000 feet, aboard a custom-equipped flying laboratory. Climate Desk was invited onboard for an eight-hour mission to suck the secrets out of clouds.

Secret Life of Trolls Part 1: Trollus MaximusClimate Desk, May 19, 2013: Internet researchers at George Mason University recently found that when it comes to online commenting, throwing bombs gets more attention than being nice, and makes readers double down on their preexisting beliefs. What's more, trolls create a false sense that a topic is more controversial than it really is. Witness the overwhelming consensus on climate change amongst scientists—97 percent agreement that global warming is real, and caused by humans. But that doesn't settle the question for Twitter addict and Climate Desk perennial thorn-in-the-side Hoyt Connell. We first encountered Hoyt, or as we know him, @hoytc55, several months ago on our Twitter page, taking us to task for our climate coverage. And the screed hasn't stopped since: In April alone, Hoyt mentioned us on Twitter some 126 times, almost as much as our top nine other followers combined. So we did the only thing we knew how to do: track him down, meet him face to face... and ask a few questions of our own. Watch Episode One of our three-part series Meet the Trolls: Trollus Maximus.

By Wednesday afternoon, nearly 240,000 were still in the dark, with no clear end in sight. Climate Desk visited one historic high-rise apartment where residents were running perilously low on water, food, and patience.
