In the 1980s, oil companies like Exxon and Shell carried out internal assessments of the carbon dioxide released by fossil fuels, and forecast the planetary consequences of these emissions.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In 1988, an internal report by Shell projected similar effects but also found that CO2 could double even earlier, by 2030. Privately, these companies did not dispute the links between their products, global warming, and ecological calamity. On the contrary, their research confirmed the connections.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Shell’s analysts also warned of the “disappearance of specific ecosystems or habitat destruction,” predicted an increase in “runoff, destructive floods, and inundation of low-lying farmland,” and said that “new sources of freshwater would be required” to compensate for changes in precipitation. Global changes in air temperature would also “drastically change the way people live and work.” All told, Shell concluded, “the changes may be the greatest in recorded history.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In Shell’s study, the firm argued that the “main burden” of addressing climate change rests not with the energy industry, but with governments and consumers. That argument might have made sense if oil executives, including those from Exxon and Shell, had not later lied about climate change and actively prevented governments from enacting clean-energy policies.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Plain & simple. We have been sacrificed for profit. To have know for 30 years that your product would destroy the planet and cause world wide destruction and death is the definition of crime against humanity. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Create Your Destiny
People want to believe animals don't feel but they do and it just breaks my heart when we don't give them the love, care and allow them to live a way of life that allows them to roam freely in their natural habitats. We are entering the 6th mass extinction on this planet. It is critical you are WOKE on the impact you make. We the people are a part of this living and breathing complex ecosystem. It is time we contribute more than we take. What will be left for your grand children and theirs? What are you going to do starting today consistently to contribute?

Artist /Activist @vonwong created this beautiful image to help the world visualize the plastic problem in our oceans.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Every 60 seconds a truckload of plastic enters the ocean.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Their mission is to get corporations to find better alternatives to plastic.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We want to support @vonwong mission & we thank him for letting us use his beautiful image. Together we can make a change!

This is former astronaut and NOAA administrator Kathryn Sullivan.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here is what she has to say about climate change:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
" My thought regarding climate change is that instead of preparing for what is to come, we should all take steps to guide what is to come by eliminating entirely one of the largest two contributors to climate change - raising livestock and harvesting fish."
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"It remains the easiest, simplest economically effective method to reduce climate change by way of reducing our anthropogenic GHG emissions. And it can be accomplished today. That's my plan, but i need some help. With a collective and immediate global effort, irreversible climate change and destructive weather patterns can be averted."
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I stand with her. It's going to take all of us.

We’re in the middle of what’s known as the “6th Mass Extinction Crisis” - at the rate the humans on Earth are going, we’ll run out of ways to sustain our population growth until humans can maintain a reasonable population growth. 7-12 kids isn’t cool anymore and everyone needs to take an active role as an Earth guardian. #earthneedslove #6thmassextinction #populationcontrol

Detail from Series “Rose micro portraits of an Astrangia Peculate Coral from Cape Cod” #2015 Here we are looking straight into the coral mouth! I woke up thinking about these translucent deep water beauties free of #xooxanthallae #photosynthetic #symbionts unlike tropical #corals they dine on plankton alone...On the #unendangeredspecies list they crop up like so many dandelions deep beneath the waves...will these species be the corals to carry the evolutionary torch through the #6thmassextinction ? Special thanks for making this series possible @luminescent_labs to see #Rose series in all her glory go to link in bio

Announcement! In the spirit of John Muir’s overrated and cheesy yet effective quote, “The Mountains are calling, and I must go!” I’ll be off backpacking in the Yosemite Backcountry until Friday this week. Just wanted to explain the lack of posts, but do not fear an article on the Helmeted Hornbill will be readily available for perusing upon my return! For now, enjoy this beautiful shot of Yosemite by Carleton Watkins taken over 150 years ago! This, among other photographs, were used to persuade President Lincoln to pass the Yosemite Grant Act to protect the Yosemite country and its many natural wonders. This Act actually lead to the eventual creation of the National Park System, but that’s another story :) ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

Did you know that Citric Acid is made from black mold?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yea, that black mold.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My roommate was offering me a scoop of his pre-workout this morning when I read the ingredients. One of the main ingredients was Citric Acid and I asked him if he knew how it was made. He thought it was made from citrus fruits and back in the day it was.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Industrial food ingenuity has made it so that citric acid can be created from Aspergillus niger, a common black mold. You’ve likely heard of how dangerous black mold is. There are several strains of Aspergillus that, if inhaled, can cause severe sickness or death. This particular strain of Aspergillus (niger) is not as lethal as others, however, in people who are weak or have impaired immune function, Aspergillus niger has been found to pose serious health risks from spore inhalation. Although citric acid can be obtained from lemon or pineapple juice, producing citric acid from A. niger is a far less expensive process.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Read your labels. Don't eat black mold.

Self Sustainability ❤️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you live to eat or eat to live?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What we put in our bodies not only gives us energy to get things accomplished but so much of our emotional state begins in our gut.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When you feel good or bad, happy or sad, do you ever think about what you had eaten right before these feelings arose? Are you paying attention and connecting the dots?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At Positive Majority, we believe the healthier a person is, the healthier their environment becomes. It's all connected. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's never to early to start eating for your health.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sustain yourself , Sustain the planet.

The Spix's Macaw is now considered extinct in the wild. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While the vast majority of bird extinctions in recent centuries have occurred on isolated islands, five of the eight highlighted by this study occurred in South America – four in Brazil alone – a tragic statement on the impact of deforestation in that part of the world.

SAD BREAKING NEWS 💔 : 📣📣📣 @worldanimalnews reports -- It has just been announced that the Spix’s Macaw that inspired the movie “Rio” is now officially extinct in the wild. 😢 This marks eight bird species that have been confirmed extinct this decade. 💔
-
Studies indicate that the rise of extinctions occurring across the continents are mainly driven by deforestation, habitat loss, wildlife trafficking, and degradation from unsustainable agriculture and logging.-
-
According to @forbes, #BirdLife International’s Chief Scientist, Stuart Butchart, and his collaborators found that five out of eight confirmed or suspected extinctions took place on the South American mainland, with four of them occurring in #Brazil, a disturbing finding that reflects the devastating effects of habitat loss due to rampant deforestation in this part of the world.-
-
The extinct parrots include two macaw species, the glaucous macaw, Anodorhynchus glaucus (last seen in 1998), and Spix’s (little blue) macaw, there is a captive population estimated to number somewhere between 60-80 individuals. The disappearance of the glaucous macaw from its range in #Argentina, #Uruguay and #Brazil is linked to trapping for the wild bird trade (as is true for all the blue macaws), and to large-scale agriculture, which prompted uncontrolled clearing of the yatay palm, Butia yatay, whose nuts were its primary food.-
-
We must do everything in our power to protect all species, especially those endangered on the brink of extinction! 🙏💙🙌 -
