The oncoming tide // Poignant photo taken by wildlife photographer Justin Hofman taken by the Indonesian archipelago, where he stayed he could smell and taste the trash and sewage that came with the tide. // Hopefully we all start to pay more attention to our output without pointing fingers. A lot of us don't seem to remember how our trash is exported and dumped in other countries. #bemindful #future #saveouroceans #oceanlife #seahorse #natgeo #wildlife #wildlifephotography #qtips #qtip #foreshadow #foreshadowing #trash #climatechange #sealife

Flash flood in #Nevada has the desert sopping wet. After intense storms and lightening, the desert smells like burnt honey. Rush Limbaugh and any other #climatedeniers or critics need to reevaluate their positions with hard science and examine the facts without the vile corruption of politics. Our environmental climate is directly related to our treatment of the planet, so the sooner public figures begin to acknowledge that our survival rests upon some variation of unity among our differences, the better chance we have at preventing further catastrophes, and ensuring a future. /// Death is blind to societal constructs.

SOLAR FLARES // The sun's completion of its 11 year cycle has produced solar flares over the last couple days, and some have been able to see auroras as a result. The intense pulses can cause geomagnetic storms that may result in radio, as well as satellite and GPS blackouts. Image is from @natgeo .

CDC Analysis: Nearly 1 Million Pounds of Seven Deadly Air Pollutants Released by Texas Refineries During Harvey Floods // "HOUSTONโ€” Refineries and petrochemical plants in south Texas released nearly 1 million pounds of seven especially dangerous air pollutants during flaring and chemical spills triggered by Hurricane Harvey, according to a new Center for Biological Diversity analysis of industry data. Staggering amounts of benzene, 1,3-butadiene, hexane, hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide, toluene and xylene โ€” estimated at 951,000 pounds so far โ€” were emitted during Harvey-related flooding by several dozen petroleum industry facilities operated by Chevron Phillips, Exxon Mobil, Shell and other companies. These seven chemicals are all toxic air pollutants documented to cause serious harms to human health, and several cause cancer. Total air pollutants from all oil and gas facilities added up to 5.46 million pounds, which is equal to 2,729 tons. 'Oil-industry facilities spewed thousands of tons of toxic chemicals into defenseless communities, despite ample warning about hurricane risk to this area,' said Shaye Wolf, the Center scientist who compiled the analysis. 'Dangerous flaring from coastal refineries has become routine during major storms. The petroleum industry seems utterly unwilling to take responsibility for operating safely, even as climate change makes storms like Harvey more destructive.'" // Conservative denial of #climatechange has not been a viable solution, but Harvey and Irma prove how the science is real, and this is a non-partisan issue. Everyone must come to understand that our differences must be put aside so that we can together make changes that will relieve our planet from its path to extreme wreckage. Stop pointing fingers, and do your part to help. .

It's heartbreaking that so many of us are so full of pain, so fearful of coping with insecurities that end up defining, and poisoning us to the point where we kill innocent beings for what's flippantly being called "fun". Morality aside, trophy and competitive hunting are outdated: we simply cannot afford to exacerbate humanity's destruction of other species, and habitats. If you have time, please sign the petition below that calls for an end to a mass killing spree of coyotes in Minnesota in the name of "fun". Petitions do work. These creatures deserve to live. My personal views aside, a competitive hunting spree of this nature is plain cowardice; there is nothing noble, necessary, fair, or natural when fortune favors one side so sweepingly. I hope that hunters begin to at least see this perspective, while I know there are many animal activists who ought to consider the hunter's points occasionally. A break (if not end) to the entitled attitudes, cruel projections, finger-pointing, and hypocrisies, among many others, is long overdue for Americans. We can start to do so on a small scale, like here. Please join me in withholding your anger, and instead listening so we can put our toxic complexes in consciousness and finally deal with it all.

๐Ÿšจ๐Ÿ”ฅLos Angeles Heat Wave Warning ๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐Ÿšจ// "Potential for extended heat wave with elevated fire danger this weekend into the middle of next week... A strong upper level high pressure system over the region combined with weakening onshore flow will bring the potential for an extended heat wave to Southwest California. On Sat, triple digit temperatures will be likely for the warmest interior sections. From Sun through Thu & possibly longer, triple digit heat will likely be widespread across the valleys, lower mountains, & deserts, with warmest locations potentially climbing to between 105 & 110 degrees. There is increasing confidence that coastal areas will also warm significantly during this heat wave with highs mostly in the 80s near the beaches & between 90 & 100 degrees across inland portions of the coastal plain, incl. #DTLA. This heat wave will also likely bring very warm overnight low temperatures, adding to the heat stress. Many areas across the Los Angeles metropolitan areas will likely see lows in the 70s with many foothill & mountain areas remaining in the 80s overnight. Excessive heat watches will likely need to be posted for a large portion of Southwest California as we draw closer to the event. There is the potential for significant heat impacts across much of Southwest California including coastal residents without air conditioning. This will be worsened by the the expected long duration of the heat wave & warm overnight low temperatures. The hot and dry conditions combined with very dry fuels will bring an extended period of elevated fire danger to Southwest California. Now is the time to make sure your air conditioning system is running properly. For those without air conditioning, it is recommended to take shelter in an air conditioned building when possible. During heat waves, it is important to remember to drink plenty of water & reduce time outside during peak heating hours. Also, never leave children or pets in the car, even for a short period of time." .

If you're in Highland Park then you can't skip @donutfriend and their delicious #vegan cake donuts (#glutenfree). They have build-your-own options, and tons of creative toppings. Everything is vegan, and, more notably, they are one of the few spots in Los Angeles that uses a safe oil for frying (in their case, rice bran oil), so there's no guilt re: high temperature rancidity-- #winwin .
