October 11, 2012              4:45 AM EDT

Sierra Club founder John Muir wrote that everything in the universe is connected—pick out any one thing and you’ll find it “hitched to everything else.” That interconnectedness is beautiful when you see it in nature. It’s not so wonderful when you look at how money and politics have affected our energy policies.

With just a few weeks remaining before the election, the battle for the hearts and minds of voters has kicked into high gear. There’s information flying at us from every angle now, and it’s getting harder and harder to separate reality from rhetoric. All you have to do is turn on the TV or surf the Internet to see that a lot of different folks are interested in telling you a lot of different stories about the candidates running for office this year.

And, because of a recent Supreme Court decision that tossed out limits on how much money big businesses can spend in elections, those who have the deepest pockets also have the biggest megaphones.

In the first three months of this year alone, 81 percent of the attack ads against President Obama were on energy and environment issues. And you can guess which (fossil fuel) companies paid for those. Analysts expect the total dollars spent in this election will surpass a record $7 billion—yes, with a “b”—before all is said and done.

That kind of money buys a lot of misinformation, and the organizations spending that cash are aiming to roll back clean energy solutions like vehicle fuel efficiency standards, pollution controls on power plants, and wind and solar innovation. It seems these polluters will do, say, and spend anything to keep their grip on the American economy.

Fortunately, few Americans agree with the handful of Big Oil and Coal CEOs who want to hijack the election to protect their profits. No matter how much money they spend, there are millions more of us who are motivated to protect our planet and our air and water, while creating a thriving economy with new American jobs and building a healthy and safe future for our kids.

And there are also plenty of candidates running in this election who share those values.

The United States is now leading the world in reducing its carbon pollution through forward-thinking, common-sense solutions and a clean energy revolution. We’re making real progress, and this is no time to allow deep-pocketed special interest groups and the politicians beholden to them to reverse course and knock clean energy out of our reach.

We need to do our homework to find out which candidates will stand up for our environment and protect us from pollution—and which ones won’t.

The solutions are right in front of us. Right now, one in five homes in Iowa is powered by wind. South Dakota generates 20 percent of its electricity from wind power, and the wind industry is on track to produce 20 percent of all the electricity in the United States by 2030. Solar is booming, too, with the U.S. market expected to double this year as rooftop panels become even more affordable for homeowners and businesses.

After the BP oil spill in my home state of Louisiana, I witnessed firsthand what greed and reckless regard for the environment can do. That is why it is so important that we all exercise our right to vote this November. We need to do our homework to find out which candidates will stand up for our environment and protect us from pollution—and which ones won’t. Most environmental organizations don’t have the gargantuan budgets that big polluters do, but they’re working to provide us with the facts about candidates’ environmental voting records through tools like the Sierra Club’s Voter Guide.

Ian Somerhalder stars as Damon Salvatore, the elder and far more dangerous of two vampire brothers who share a long and bitter history, in The CW’s hit dramaThe Vampire Diaries. Somerhalder is well known for his role as Boone on J.J. Abrams’ critically acclaimed and award-winning drama Lost. He won the 2005 SAG Award as part of “Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series” and Lost won the 2005 Emmy Award for “Best Television Series – Drama.” His film credits include Roger Avary’s The Rules of Attraction, Irwin Winkler’s Life as a House, and Tony Giglio’s In Enemy Hands. Somerhalder’s other television credits include HBO’s Tell Me You Love Me, and a leading role in The WB seriesYoung Americans.

In 2010, Somerhalder launched The Ian Somerhalder Foundation, which aims to educate, empower and collaborate with people and projects who positively impact our planet and its creatures. Somerhalder strives to create awareness for environmental and animal rights related issues, focusing specifically on the environment, creatures and clean energy initiatives. In 2011, ISF co-partnered with the Alliance for Global Conservation to create Planet Green’s “Blue August,” a week-long series that explored the wonders of the ocean and aquatic life. Ian served as an online and on-camera guide for the documentary and traveled to Trinidad and Tobago to film the life cycle of sea turtles. Currently, ISF is working on developing its own Animal Sanctuary dedicated to misfit and outcast pets, as well as other animals. Earlier this year, Somerhalder was awarded with the Humane Society of America’s prestigious Wyler Award for his work with animals. In October, The Environmental Media Association (EMA) honored Ian with the EMA Futures Award, which recognizes young environmentally active role-models committed to the environment and using their voice to make a difference.

5:44 PM EDT        Wednesday April 18, 2012

Broadcast icon Dick Clark, the creator and longtime host of “American Bandstand,” has died, publicist Paul Shefrin said. He was 82.

Clark suffered a heart attack while at St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica for an outpatient procedure, his publicist said. “Attempts to resuscitate were unsuccessful.”

Clark suffered what was then described as “a mild stroke” in December 2004, just months after announcing he had been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.

That stroke forced Clark to cut back on his on-camera work, including giving up the hosting duties for the “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” specials. He returned as a co-host with Ryan Seacrest on December 31, 2005.

Clark anguished each year over whether to continue appearing on the annual show because of limitations on his speech from the stroke, U.S. Rep. David Drier, a longtime friend, told CNN Wednesday.

“But then he would get deluged by people who were stroke victims and other people who had infirmities and they were such admirers of his fighting spirit,” said Drier, R-California.

Clark appeared on the last show for New Year’s Eve 2011.

“He loved it, but at the same time he knew that his continued diligence was providing inspiration to a lot of people who were going through difficulties, facing infirmities themselves,” Drier said.

Seacrest gave a statement to CNN Wednesday expressing deep sadness for “the loss of my dear friend Dick Clark.”

“He has truly been one of the greatest influences in my life,” Seacrest said. “I idolized him from the start, and I was graced early on in my career with his generous advice and counsel. When I joined his show in 2006, it was a dream come true to work with him every New Year’s Eve for the last 6 years.”

Seacrest called Clark “smart, charming, funny and always a true gentleman.”

“I learned a great deal from him, and I’ll always be indebted to him for his faith and support of me,” he said. “He was a remarkable host and businessman and left a rich legacy to television audiences around the world. We will all miss him.”

His “American Bandstand” work, which he began as a local TV show in Philadelphia in 1956, earned him the nickname “America’s oldest living teenager.” The show was picked up by ABC and broadcast nationally a year later.

“Only God is responsible for making more stars than Dick Clark,” said singer Tony Orlando, who was 16 when he first appeared on Clark’s show in 1961.

“You had to go through the world and universe of Dick Clark in order to part of the record business,” Orlando said.

Born Richard Wagstaff Clark in Mount Vernon, New York, on November 30, 1929, he began his broadcast career working at a radio station managed by his father.

Clark, who was married three times, is survived by his wife, Kari, two sons and a daughter.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted Clark in its nonperformer category in 1993.

Clark also hosted numerous other television favorites including “$25,000 Pyramid” and “TV’s Bloopers and Practical Jokes.”

“This guy was the best,” said singer Freddy Cannon, who appeared on “American Bandstand” 110 times. “He helped me from the very bottom of my career all through the ’80s and the ’90s, and he’s going to be missed a lot.”

Clark’s passing follows by less than three months the death of another TV dance show icon, Don Cornelius, the creator of “Soul Train.” Cornelius was found dead of what authorities said was a self-inflicted gunshot wound in Los Angeles on February 1. He was 75.

It’s the talent show performance heard around the world.

At his school’s Sixth Grade Festival, 12-year-old Greyson Chance took to the piano and performed an amazing, dead-on rendition of Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi,” to the shock and awe of his classmates – and more than 8 million viewers on YouTube.

So who is this new tween phenom with a story – and haircut – to rival that of Justin Bieber?

The Edmond, Okla., resident says he is a pianist (he’s taken lessons for three years) and songwriter (he’s penned two original tunes, “Stars” and “Broken Hearts”) but not a trained singer.

On Thursday, Chance told Ellen DeGeneres that he’s “never taken a voice lesson,” though he certainly has an innate feel for music. Of his own songs, he told her, “I write my songs for meaning. I either live them or feel them.”

And Lady Gaga? “She’s probably my number one inspiration,” said Chance. “I love her individuality.”

He’s loving all the attention he’s attracted, but like any good rock star, he’s taking it in stride. “Let’s just say I’ve gotten a couple of numbers and made some new friends,” he joked of his smitten classmates.

But Chance had his moment to be star-struck as well, when Lady Gaga herself called into the Ellen show to congratulate him.

Calling the singer “Miss Gaga,” Chance grinned and blushed when getting advice from the pop star. “Be focused,” she told him, and “stay away from girls.”
