Australian woman Finds Mammoth Tusk Due To Global Warming

Mammoth tusk

Mammoth Tusk found by australian geologist

The Mammoth Tusk was found by an Australian Geologist known as ‘Thora The Explorer’ while holidaying in Alaska. She spotted a bit of a blue, curved object, protruding from the mud.

She soon recognised that she had found a Mammoth’s tusk. The tusk is estimated at a minimum of 10,000 years old.

The main reason that the tusk became visible is the more and more of the permafrost has melted over the last few years.

While this is a wonderful find that anyone would treasure, it is another indication that our governments need to make urgent changes to prevent more melting of the permafrost and glaciers.

The tusk had been turned blue by thousands of years of mineralisation.

Effects Of Climate Change On Wildlife

Nope, we dont have climate change

Effects of Climate Change on Wildlife

Climate change affects humans and wildlife. Effects caused by climate change on one part of our ecosystem affects others.
 
Pollinators, (bees, butterflies etc), are essential to life. They struggle to adjust to climate changes. Their biorhythms get out of sync with the blooming of plant life. This results in poor pollination and reduced crop yields.
 
Warming waters, both oceanic and land based, alter the depth where fish can live. Oceans higher in acid prevent corals, lobsters, crabs and other crustaceans from maturing.
 
Our wetlands will dry up meaning less breeding grounds for our waterfowl. Certain species will die out altogether through habitat loss.
 
Further habitat loss will occur with rising sea levels that will impact our coasts. We will lose marshlands and mangroves.
 
Changes in climate will allow invasive plants to kill off native flora. The loss of native flora will result in no food for insects that relied on those plants. So we lose those insects to climate change too.
 
I know our governments wheels are slow to turn. But they must make changes now. Not in fifty or a hundred years.
 
By then it may be too late.

Death Of A Planet

Death Of A Planet

The picture here of a fracking operation may look innocent enough, but it is a contributor to the death of a planet.

This one.

Fracking involves drilling through the water table, or aquifer, to deposits of gas underneath. This can lead to contamination of the aquifer making the water undrinkable.

mining

This is a paddle mining machine. It rips holes in the landscape with no consideration for the microcosms of life it destroys without remorse.

open cut mining

The open cut mines are even worse. They go hundreds of feet down into the Earth, scarring the landscape and creating huge amounts of dust.

coal mining

Here we have a coal mine. It could easily be a gold mine, a nickel mine or a diamond mine. There are countless miles of tunnels crisscrossing the ground, some under our feet. Of course, there is a lot of shoring up done during the lives of these mines to ensure the safety of the workers.

What happens when the pillars rot or rust away? Only one thing can happen. The workings collapse causing instability in the rest of the mine leading to more collapses. Who is to say that this will not lead to the weakening of the structure of the Earths mantle?

If this happens then perhaps the tectonic plates that our continental land masses sit upon could begin to move faster, leading to more earthquakes and tsunamis.

The future is bleak. The death of the planet is assured, not in our lifetimes but eventually, it will happen, unless we ourselves make the changes required.

Stop the rape of the planet, protect our ecology both on land and in water bodioes. World peace is a must, followed by shared resourses and deletion of the need for wealth and money.

Euphoria? Yes. Only we can achive it by lobbying our politicialns to strive for unity across the globe.

Howl Like A Wolf

It Is Time To Howl Like A Wolf

The wolf has been with us every day since the Pleistocene period, as far back as 125,000 years, in the form of the domesticated dog.

In the US, wolves were mercilessly hunted and totally eradicated by the 1920’s. Across the border in Canada, they lived on.

Fast forward to 1995 and our understanding of ecosystems had increased showing us that the wolf was necessary as a part of the chain of life in Yellowstone National Park. This led to 70 wolves being captured in Canada and relocated to Yellowstone. This was an effort to reverse the degradation of the fauna due to excessive grazing by animals whose predator had been removed.

There is also a landowner in Scotland who, in March this year, asked for permission to re-introduce the wolf to his land as a way of controlling the deer population.

But why howl like a wolf?

Howl At The Moon Day was started to make people aware of the importance of wolves in the wild.

It is also a great excuse to go camping and have a few beers before going outside the tent and howling at the moon. People will think you are acting like idiots, but it is really  just some harmless fun to had, especially with the approach of Halloween

Reptile Awareness Day – Snakes Alive!

Snakes Alive

Today is a reminder that snakes are well and truly on the move right now.

The warmer than expected weather is causing snakes to stir from their winter sleep into activity.

The first thing they will do, after warming up in the Sun, will be to look for water.

There are pockets of bush throughout out cities that may still have snakes living in them. If you live near such a spot, or if you live in a country town, be on the lookout for snakes trying to find water.

I myself stepped out of the front door to see a Dugite snake slithering away from the plants near the bird bath.

Bushwalkers should take extra care when walking. It is all too easy to come across a King Brown, a Dugite or a Tiger Snake.

Australia is a wonderful place to live. But it can be lethal too.
