Know any climate scientists?

NASA folks? Physicists?

I understand where you're coming from but you are in denial. There is no accessible "Planet B."

Big K&R

Significant finding.




My hubby is also a scientist, a physicist, who also get emotional when he's made big discoveries and breakthroughs (although retired now, he's currently writing the biggest paper of his life).
We non-scientists can relate to these peak experiences.

Wow. I always love dolphins stories.

Such intelligent "critter-people."


Dolphins deserve same rights as humans, say scientists"

Experts in philosophy, conservation and animal behaviour want support for a Declaration of Rights for Cetaceans.

They believe dolphins and whales are sufficiently intelligent to justify the same ethical considerations as humans.

Recognising their rights would mean an end to whaling and their captivity, or their use in entertainment.

What happened?

Fox Lies, Rush Limbaugh, 1500 RW talk radio stations, & Citizens United.

Add in a number of well-placed Elmer Gantry preachers, big oil interests, a Putin looking to regain old Soviet-type power, Racism, and we then have a Donald Trump.

Propaganda works on weak-minded, disgruntled Americans looking to blame the wrong ppl for their woes

Btw, here's a tidbit: did you know that the Citizens United case was brought by a group chaired by David Bossie, who later was Trump’s deputy campaign manager?

So, it's been Corporate take-over of media, the courts, and our country.

Did I leave anything off?


My dad used to bring the family pony 🐎

Into the farm house just to shock & piss off my mother. Happened a few times before she must've decided it best not to react, as it was her reaction he was looking for. 🐎

Typical pony was fond of brown sugar cubes.

Embarrassing.

Hubby said we should wear maple leaf pins if we go back to England.
We've always apologized for rethug administrations in our Christmas cards to friends there (especially for the last 3 yrs) - happy to say we don't know any folks supporting Boris.


Exactly. They're running a scam.

Many yrs ago a retired Methodist
minister admitted to my husband and myself that he was an atheist. He knew we were. Anyway, he said he had to "keep up the appearances." His wife was a believer & he had a retirement from the church.

I've always wondered what percentages of all denominations are faking it. However, it seems that the Catholic hierarchy are in more unique positions to add sexual abuse to their crime of hypocrisy.

MSNBC correspondent mins ago:

Paraphrasing: Pelosi is going to tie up the process in the Senate until she can get terms "favorable to Democrats."


How about saying "FAIR to Democrats."

Depends on dosage.

As with many substances, depending on the amount, they can be either very detrimental or healing.

This is what ‘microdosing’ LSD and magic mushrooms does for wisdom and creativity

We just ran the first ever pre-registered scientific study on the microdosing of psychedelics and found some very promising results.
...
Specifically, we found that microdosers scored higher on measures of wisdom, open-mindedness and creativity.

Microdosers also scored lower on measures of dysfunctional attitudes and negative emotionality, which is very promising.

Too bad society doesn't accept its verified and legitimate healing properties.

Yes, a documentary could help.

But unfortunately the only people who would listen to the documentary would be people who already know about the problem. Others will continue with their heads in the sand.

I empathize with the despair - had long months of sobbing/ deep depression when, yrs ago, I first realized the full extent of what global warming will do to the planet, to ALL living things. Strangely, I despaired more for innocent critters than for we humans who have selfishly caused this.

As climate scientists have said about the current offerings of fixes, with the exception of cutting carbon emissions to the bone (which will not be done): they're inadequate. 😢
