    "This week, Tokyo Electric, the owner of the nuclear plant, again admitted that groundwater that was contaminated by radiation from the 2011 meltdown is leaking into the Pacific Ocean."

    Read up if you wanna live. Be logical. Think for yourself. If I lived in the West Coast, I would not eat the fish, I would not go swimming in the ocean. I would probably plan a move to the Midwest or the East Coast as quick as possible.

    This shit causes the worst form of cancer you can get. What do you not get about that? This is only the beginning of a monstrous disaster to mankind.

    currently in search of a mate in which to start an earthship life with. apply within. 

    i like everything except the “free food” notion. as if to say the energy and thoughts expended on the plants you help grow is somehow “free”, without value, and comes from thin air. aside from that, excellent ideas and would love to take part in the construction and maintenance of my own and others.

    “Human beings are the only animals who have to work, and I think that is the most ridiculous thing in the world. Other animals make their livings by living, but people work like crazy, thinking that they have to in order to stay alive. The bigger the job, the greater the challenge, the more wonderful they think it is. It would be good to give up that way of thinking and live an easy, comfortable life with plenty of free time. I think that the way animals live in the tropics, stepping outside in the morning and evening to see if there is something to eat, and taking a long nap in the afternoon, must be a wonderful life. For human beings, a life of such simplicity would be possible if one worked to produce directly his daily necessities. In such a life, work is not work as people generally think of it, but simply doing what needs to be done.”

    Coral reefs are not only pretty-looking organisms, they are also very important to our planet! Here are some big words to think about…

    Zooxanthellae = tiny marine algae that provide up to 90% of the energy that corals require to grow and reproduce.

    Mapping Out How to Save Species

    In stunning color, new biodiversity research from North Carolina State University maps out priority areas worldwide that hold the key to protecting vulnerable species and focusing conservation efforts.

    The research, published online in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, pinpoints the highest global concentrations of mammals, amphibians and birds on a scale that’s 100 times finer than previous assessments. The findings can be used to make the most of available conservation resources, said Dr. Clinton Jenkins, lead author and research scholar at NC State University.

  13. this morning, just a few minutes before the ‘13 minute feeding session’ video that is being posted was filmed. the same eurasian collared dove from a previous post. has the out of place wing most likely from one of the wandering cats. this dove likes to eat before everyone else because the more aggressive white wings like to fight and it’s still injured.

    Part of the morning rounds. Checking out the newly planted sparris experiment. Say godmorning to the bees. Remind myself to buy electric nets for the chickens so that I can move them about (whitout risking the sparris etc) and leave them untended. We had some bad experience with a threelegged fox. I felt kind of sorry for him/her so was not that mad.

    someone else living the solution. check out her blog.
