It also offers knowledge and a caution about our failures as individuals and as a species. We’ve all made mistakes before, big and small. By acknowledging anthropogenic […]

Long Lost Photos Reveal Precious Data About Greenland's Glacier History

  Considering that we didn’t start getting satellites up into the atmosphere until the 1970s, it comes as no surprise that recently discovered photographs from the 1930s depicting Greenland’s glaciers are viewed as a precious scientific resource. Rediscovered in a castle just outside of Copenhagen, Denmark, the photographs below spawn from 1930s aerial surveys of […]

Scenes and Signs from the 'Occupy Seattle' Protest Rally

October 8, 2011 Seattle Washington – Signs of the Times
Saturday’s ‘Occupy Seattle’ rally (“general assembly”) at Westlake Plaza and march on City Hall went off without too many hitches and just two arrests at its near conclusion. I estimate the crowd at its peak to be between 3 and 4000.

The Occupy Wall Street movement that began in New York nearly a month ago has spread like so much GMO crop pollen, with ‘Occupy ________’ (fill in city of your choice) rallies and protests spreading around the country.

No single message has crystallized yet, although there is such a wide base of anger and resentment that one should not be puzzled at this. Currently, the still somewhat leader-less movement seems to be morphing into simply an “occupy everything” movement.

Dolphins (10 Friday Photos)

Dolphins — do you know anybody who doesn’t like them? So cute, so amazing and funny — that’s what they are. What’s more — they’re absolutely intelligent and talented! Can I say that they’re just fabulous animals?

Have any of you swum with dolphins? Can you describe this feeling for those who haven’t had so much fortune to do that (yet)? I hope I will try one day!

Ferrets (10 Friday Photos + extra)

Ferrets? AWESOME! They’re getting more and more popular as pets, and that’s nothing surprising! They’re not so easy to live with — you have to be very patient. However, they’re great friends with whom you can have a lot of fun! Today, you can see ferrets in the bathroom, in the snow, white ferrets, and others. They’re all cool, beautiful, just gorgeous.

Paved highways of clouds across the skies of the North Atlantic. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite collected this natural-color view […]

Hedgehogs (10 Friday Photos)

Photo Credit: CadenArmstrong via Flickr My friend and I have never seen a hedgehog, so I decided to find some photos to solace us. Maybe that’s not the same as seeing one in real life, but still, I think they’re really cute animals. Are hedgehogs common in your area? Some of my friends say that […]

Peacocks (10 Friday Photos)

  Peacocks, in my humble opinion, are one of the most beautiful creatures on the planet. I was lucky enough to have a peacock family in my neighborhood for awhile while I was growing up (although, some considered them a menace due to the loud noises they would make — never bothered me). Still, they […]

Ecomagination Photo Project

I recently got tipped off to a great website and project, the GE ecomagination photo project. The simple deal with this project is, as a friend wrote to me, “for every photo uploaded to flickr, a donation will be made to communities in need of clean water, solar light, and wind turbine powered electricity.” Sounds […]
