Mad As Hell!

Ya know, I am really mad as hell.  I can’t help it!  The very first donation I ever made, I guess when I was around 18, and lived in a hole in the wall.  I got so upset reading about the Whales, that I sent money to save the whales.  Ever since that time, I have given money to save creatures, and one of my most beloved have always been the whales, and other sea creatures.  

It was bad enough to read about the sea stars.  But as time went on, it was the pelicans, the eagles, the seals, the dolphins, the whales, and on and on and on.  I have bitched and moaned, begged and pleaded with people to awaken.  I guess that no one cares.  Today reading about all the beachings in CA, I got so mad, that all I could do was cry.  What is wrong with people?  Read the news over at Enews.com.  They don’t lie to you.  Learn what is going on, cause when the oceans die, we die too.

So, even if you don’t give a shit about the sea creatures, and don’t care about anything else, surely you care about your offspring, or the offspring of your siblings.  It is bad enough that they are doing the soft kill to us, but throw Fukushima in the mix, and humans won’t even look human in the near future.  Our DNA is going to be so fucked up, that who knows what humans will have evolved to.

This is no joking matter.  Look at you children.  Look at your grandchildren.  If there are any humans left in a couple of generations, what will be being born, will no longer be recognizable.

THINK ABOUT IT!

 

Be safe, don’t eat the fish, for God’s sakes.

This 3200 Year Old Tree Is So Huge It’s Never Been Captured In A Single Image. Until Now.
It takes a special kind of tree to have a nickname.

“The President” is one of those trees. The giant sequoia stands 247 feet tall, measures 45,000 cubic feet in volume, and is an estimated 3,200 years old.

The trunk is 27 feet wide and the his mighty branches hold 2 billion needles, the most of any tree on the planet.

On top of that, he still adds one cubic meter of wood per year – making him one of the fastest growing trees in the world.

Giant sequoias exist in only one place, where The President and smaller trees that make up his “House” and “Senate”, reside.On the western slope of the Sierra Nevadas in California, at 5000-8000 ft above sea level.

Until now, the tree had never been photographed in its entirety.A team of photographers from National Geographic worked with scientists from the park to be the first.

It took an intricate set of pulleys and levers to scale the tree, which some argue is the largest in the world (taking width into account).

After 32 days and stitching together 126 separate photos, we are left with this breathtaking portrait of The President.
