As the Earth Lay Dying...

Here are three stories I came across in the last week or so:

1. Chinook Salmon Vanish Without a Trace - "The Chinook salmon that swim upstream to spawn in the fall, the most robust run in the Sacramento River, have disappeared. The almost complete collapse of the richest and most dependable source of Chinook salmon south of Alaska left gloomy fisheries experts struggling for reliable explanations — and coming up dry."

Here's my explanation. Apparently this kind of thing happens up and down the Pacific coast of California.

2. Why are thousands of bats dying in New York? - "Bats in New York and Vermont are mysteriously dying off by the thousands, often with a white ring of fungus around their noses, and scient ists in hazmat suits are crawling into dank caves to find out why."

3. Massive ice shelf collapsing off Antarctica - "Scientists are citing 'rapid climate change in a fast-warming region of Antarctica' as the cause of an initial collapse of the Wilkins Ice Shelf. The damage got started at the end of February when an iceberg dropped off and triggered the "runaway disintegration" of a 160-square-mile portion of the 5,282-square-mile shelf."

Why is it that we're still sitting here doing nothing?

I'm amazed at companies like Exxon Mobil - they still try to shirk their responsibility for the damage they cause...

And here's a story about the Japanese whalers - they're ready to kill Moby Dick!

Wait, there's more >>

Please pass the popcorn.

What can we do ? Sack all the politicians and company directors. Will G8 sort it out? The best I’ve seen any of these guys do is tinker with the symptoms. Science can’t really help us with solutions when we cant even identify the cause. What is the cause? Mans egoistic nature, the ever increasing desire for wealth, drives us forward like a cancer on this earth. Year on year we make greater and greater demands from the planet. It is not one mans desire that drives this, but all of ours, and the only changes that will help are the ones we make within ourselves. Michael Laitman says in his blog
"The only thing we need to do is balance ourselves with nature"

I hope we can raise the importance of our beautiful planet above our desire for personal wealth.
