ALWAYS RETURN

“You may drive out nature with a pitchfork, but she will always return.”   –Horace
“In nature there are neither rewards nor punishments–there are consequences.”  –Robert Ingersoll

There are more indications of how close to the precipice of extinction we have driven the planet.  The wintering population of monarch butterflies in California used to be in the millions, now it is less than 100-thousand.

The Trump Administration wants to drill for oil in land once saved from development for the helpless Sage Grouse.  What good is some silly bird if there’s a profit to be had from public land?

We are, unnaturally, poisoning ourselves along with the rest of planet.  Plastic stools of the fecal variety…

More and more scientists remind us of what happened the last time there was a crucial heating of the earth…uit was widespread death.

SOMETHING JOYOUS COMES AT LAST

In New Zealand waters divers got video of a giant sea worm.

This is not a single creature but a pyrosome, a colony of tiny animals called tunicates.  They are filter feeders, using tiny syphons to move water through their bodies.

  1. Reblogged this on Pete's Favourite Things and commented:
    I was unsettled to read in the paper the other day that there are large and powerful lobbying organisations who sole premise is the removal of regulations: Tax, Environmental, Conservation, Social Benefits, Health and safety from our law nooks. The motive so that rich people can make even more money and **** the rest of society.
