"Carelessly and rapidly eliminating species that make up an essential part of the world's biodiversity is like burning all the copies of millions of books that we have never read." - E.O. Wilson
The chocolate orchid is endemic to Mexico, but is now sadly believed to be extinct in the wild. The plant is so named because the odor it releases when it blooms smells of chocolate. There is only one example of this unique, maroon flower in existence today, a clone grown by scientists using a technique called vegetative propagation.

"It is quite simple: put passion ahead of training. Feel out in any way you can what you most want to do in science, or technology or some other science-related profession. Obey that passion as long as it lasts. Feed it with the knowledge the mind needs to grow. Sample other subjects, acquire a general education in science, and be smart enough to switch to a greater love if one appears... Decision and hard work based on enduring passion will never fail you." -E.O. Wilson, "Letter to A Young Scientist." Sound advice for both science and climbing. 💕 #stem #eowilson #science #climbing #motivation

If all mankind were to disappear, the world would regenerate back to the rich state of equilibrium that existed ten thousand years ago. If insects were to vanish, the environment would collapse into chaos.

We're drowning in information, while starving for wisdom.

“You are capable of more than you know. Choose a goal that seems right for you and strive to be the best, however hard the path. Aim high. Behave honorably. Prepare to be alone at times, and to endure failure. Persist! The world needs all you can give.” #EOWilson

Went on a field trip with my favorite girl today! #eowilson

More than 15,000 #Scientists have signed a chilling article titled “World Scientists' Warning to Humanity: A Second Notice," urging global leaders to save the planet from environmental catastrophe.

The plea, published Monday in the international journal #BioScience, is likely the largest-ever formal support by scientists for a journal article with 15,372 total signatories. The scientists represent 184 countries and have a range of scientific backgrounds. Prominent signatories include #JaneGoodall, #EOWilson and #JamesHansen.

The “Second Notice" an update to the original version published 25 years ago by the Union of Concerned Scientists and signed by 1,700 scientists then underscores the lack of progress from the original document!

The first notice started with this statement: “Human beings and the natural world are on a collision course." It described trends such as the growing hole in the #ozone layer, #pollution and depletion of #freshwater sources, #overfishing, #deforestation, plummeting wildlife populations, as well as unsustainable rises in #greenhouse #gas #emissions, global temperatures and human population levels.

Unfortunately, the authors of the current article said that humanity has failed to progress on most of the measures.

They ominously warned, “time is running out." “Especially troubling is the current trajectory of potentially catastrophic climate change" from the burning of fossil fuels and other human activities, the paper stated.

#WilliamJRipple, lead author of the current article and a distinguished professor of #Ecology at #OregonStateUniversity, told the Associated Press he was stunned by the level of support for the manuscript. “I initially sent it out to 40 of my colleagues," he explained. “After 24 hours there were 600 scientists who signed it. Within two days, there were 1,200. There were so many people signing that our website crashed a couple of times." #RenewableEnergy #Solar #Wind #Thermal #Hydro #SaveOurMother #SaveOurOceans #NoPlanetB #DivestFromFossilFuels #DivestFromCoal #NotMeUs 🌍🌎🌏🌞💨🔥🌊✊🏽🙏🏽 https://www.ecowatch.com/scientists-environmental-warning-2509347840.html @ecowatch

What a treat to photograph Alan Alda and EO Wilson for @chi_humanities @rockefeller_chapel. Alda stuck out his hand and said "Hi, I'm Alan" and EO Wilson used my camera to identify an ant. An epic day! #chicagohumanitiesfestival #alanalda #eowilson

Birds, frogs, crickets, humans are the only audio-visual creatures. 99% of creatures communicate through chemicals. If we could imagine what it's like to communicate through chemicals, see infrared or ultraviolet light, or navigate via magnetism, we would better understand the natural world, and be better humans for it. -- E.O. Wilson and Alan Alda chat @chi_humanities #CHFBelief #nature #empathy #eowilson #alanalda

My reading from the past month. Not included is the two ebooks I read, "The Faraway Nearby" and "The Mother of all Questions" both by Rebecca Solnit. It was a good month. .

At the @chi_humanities festival hearing Alan Alda and Edward O. Wilson speak on the origins of creativity. Fascinating. Empathy plays a huge part in all of this.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now. ~Chinese proverb 🌱🌳 One hundred and forty trees planted today at John Hunt Park. In twenty years there should be a lot less blue in a pic from this angle. These trees are along Leeman Ferry close to Airport Road next to #huntsvilleiceplex. #NationalTreePlantingDay #reforesttheworld #HuntsvilleAlabama #35801 #operationgreenteam #HalfEarth #EOWilson #modelsforearth #dogwood #magnolia #AutumnFlameMaple #WhiteOak #blazemaple #shumardoak #acerrubrum

All told, I am disappointed with this one. A beautiful cover and ostensibly promising understanding of the relationship between science and the humanities I think gives too much credit to the latter. #EOWilson initially gets the definitions of them correct and correctly points out that the humanities need to understand evolution to understand humanity, and they seem to have neglected (and I fear rejected) this fact. #GadSaad's mentioning the author positively before tipped the scales on my buying it, but now I'm not sure I even want to read #Consilience. The 'proposal' for a third enlightenment is quite vague and empty, and makes a weak argument for the role of the humanities which actually seems like a wrong-headed approach to me; I expect the questions he posed for this third enlightenment to answer will be answered by science. I think I may write a more thought out and long form review of this, sometime.

Thai massage (and everything) is even better in buildings that are designed with biophilia in mind.
biophilia, noun (according to a theory of the biologist E. O. Wilson) an innate and genetically determined affinity of human beings with the natural world. #ifeelgood #inspiring #biophilia #biophiliahypothesis #wellbuildinginstitute #eowilson
