DEN ER UDE😀 så skynd dig ind og lyt!!! I denne 8 afsnits podcastserie får du en #OPSANG! Du bliver klogere på nulevende arter som #FUGLE, #BIER og #INSEKTER, som ikke just trives i disse tider. Det gør #ROTTER og #MENNESKET derimod. #ULVEN er vendt tilbage, men den er ikke populær. Det var #GEJERFUGLEN derimod, for den kunne både bruges som optænding, lampeolie og som føde.

“The one feature these disparate events have in common is change and, to be more specific, rate of change. When the world changes faster than species can adapt, many fall out... What matters is that people change the world... Indeed, this capacity is probably indistinguishable from the qualities that made us human to begin with: our relentlessness, our creativity, our ability to cooperate to solve problems and complete complicated tasks.” #TheSixthExtinction

Let’s do better. Owning birds and now living in Florida with such a vast and delicate ecosystem combined with actually reading the Bible has given me a pretty clear understanding that, essentially, our search for more comfortable living has come at a price.
Let’s keep expanding and making headway for our economy. Let’s just do it responsibly.

Catching up on reading at the CUTEST coffee shop today! East Madison, you are the coolest and I love exploring ya. Hopefully going to finish up The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History by Elizabeth Kolbert today for book club. And I have 3 essays left of Carmen Maria Machado’s book Her Body and Other Parties.

____ Vencedor do prêmio Pulitzer 2015, "A Sexta Extinção" coloca a humanidade para repensar suas ações.
Ao longo dos últimos 500 milhões de anos, o mundo passou por cinco brutais extinções em massa, nas quais sua biodiversidade caiu de maneira abrupta. Dessas, a mais conhecida foi a que eliminou, entre outros seres vivos, os dinossauros, quando um asteroide colidiu com o planeta há 65 milhões de anos. Atualmente, vem sendo monitorada a sexta extinção, que tem potencial para ser a mais devastadora da história da Terra. Mas, dessa vez, a causa não é um asteroide ou algo semelhante. Nós somos a causa.

Em "A sexta extinção", a jornalista Elizabeth Kolbert explica de que maneira e por que o ser humano alterou a vida no planeta como absolutamente nenhuma espécie o fizera até hoje. Para isso, a pesquisadora lança mão de trabalhos de dezenas de cientistas nas searas mais diversas e vai aos lugares mais remotos em busca de respostas: de ilhas quase inacessíveis na Islândia até a vastidão da cordilheira dos Andes.

Neste livro, Kolbert apresenta ao leitor doze espécies — algumas desaparecidas, outras em vias de extinção — e, partir daí, chega à conclusão assustadora de que uma quantidade inigualável de animais está desaparecendo bem diante de nossos olhos. Ao mesmo tempo, a jornalista traça um panorama de como a extinção tem sido entendida pelo homem nos últimos séculos, desde os primeiros artigos sobre o tema, do naturalista francês Georges Cuvier, passando por Charles Lyell e Charles Darwin, até os dias de hoje.

Kolbert mostra que a sexta extinção corre o risco de ser o legado final da humanidade e nos convida a repensar uma questão fundamental: O QUE SIGNIFICA SER HUMANO?

One of the best things about living in Hartford is its proximity to so many cool places. Last week I visited @davidbuckleyborden ‘s Hemlock Hospice at Harvard Forest. What an eye-opening art installation, set in the midst of 3000 acres of hemlock forest dying from woody adelgid infestation

Apart from Homo Sapiens only a few other species like rats and pigeons thrives in the biological dessert also known as Denmark. And so it makes sense to make an eight episode podcast titled ‘The Sixth Extinction’ / ‘Den Sjette Masseuddøen’ in Danish. Coming up on Radio24syv in end of May 2018. For that reason many of the following posts will be in Danish.

A little look at Crystal Morey's ( @cmorey ) newest work in progress!

Crystal has a show coming up with Antler Gallery at the end of June.

Repost from @cmorey - Townsend Big Eared Bat🦇 in the works for @antlerpdx! I love this sculpture and can’t wait to see how she turns out!

I am a huge fan of climate science writer and reporter, Elizabeth Kolbert, and her book, “The Sixth Extinction”. Kolbert tell stories and catalogues animals that are impacted by human expansion and resource consumption. This sculpture is inspired by the chapter on bats, “White Nose Syndrome” and the ways humans are moving bacteria around the planet without realizing the consequences!
Thank you for following along in my porcelain adventures and studio creations! 🖤#thesixthextinction #anthropocene #elizabethkolbert #crystalmorey #townsendbigearedbat #porcelainsculpture

I’d just like to share this today because I got lost in a dumb Facebook thread of comments validating the extremely unsustainable meat industry with this reason: if we don’t hunt and kill animals, their populations will get out of control and they will overcrowd the Earth. 🤦🏼‍♀️ I’d also like to question individuals with that logic, “should we control the human population as well seeing as we are the most destructive species to the planet.. and are nearly overcrowding ourselves?” No other species treats our Home and their cohabitants with such disrespect.
P.S This is hard to say because I wish we could get even close to this point, but I’m not proposing a 100% meatless diet everyday for every person. We just need to seriously decrease the demand for meat so we can perhaps sustain life on earth long enough for our children’s children to enjoy it. Y’all better hope our oceans are not dead by 2050 because if that happens we’re donezo 😞 #thesixthextinction #animalagriculture #climatechange #veganismisthefuture

Enjoying a good read! 💁🏻‍♀️

Fenomenalna książka. Napisana jak wciągająca powieść. Mistrzowski reportaż będący efektem długich lat intensywnej pracy (nagroda Pulitzera 2015). Jestem pod ogromnym wrażeniem. Opowieść o nas, trwającym właśnie szóstym wymieraniu gatunków i epoce, w której żyjemy, zwanej antropocenem. Wstrząsająca, potrzebna, jedna z ważniejszych książek jakie przeczytałem. Sięgnijcie po nią proszę. "Szóste wymieranie. Historia nienaturalna", @wydawnictwo_wab, tłumaczenie: Piotr Grzegorzewski i Tatiana Grzegorzewska.

After the tragic death of Sudan on the 19 March, only 2 northern white rhinos remain, his daughter Najin and grandaughter Fatu. Both are found at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Nairobi. The only hope to save this species from extinction is by surrogacy using southern white rhinos. There are many ways to suppprt this vital research, so check out @olpejeta. 📷AP.

This, from today’s ArtCountry presentation of the summer lineup for our north county region’s cultural institutions. This print is from the upcoming Bennington Museum exhibition, ”Thinking about Extinction and Other Droll Things: Recent Prints and Drawings by Edward Koren,” opening May 12. Koren was inspired to create this series after reading The Sixth Extinction by Elizabeth Kolbert. @benningtonmuseum @newyorkermag #elizabethkolbert #thesixthextinction #edwardkoren #artcountry
