Momma whale and her calf singing to each other.

Listening to this gave me the chills and some tears.

Our Food, Toxic Fields. Farmworkers represent the backbone of our agricultural economy and their work is some of the most physically demanding labor in any economic sector. They are also among the least protected from hazards on the job and have one of the highest rates of chemical exposures among all U.S. workers. Off the job, they often live in or near treated fields, where harmful pesticides can drift into their homes.

Reborn – the giant tree felled as a result of a bar-room wager

Reborn – the giant tree felled as a result of a bar-room wager | Our Evolving Earth | Scoop.it
It would have been the biggest tree alive today had it not been so ignominiously felled in 1890 – reputedly to satisfy a drunken bet about making a table big enough to seat 40 guests from a single slice of tree-trunk.

Crystal Bellert's curator insight, March 27, 3:17 AM

According to the article, common sense was overlooked when the idea to cut down what would have been the oldest tree alive today was followed through.  In the future, I hope to be a part of educating and preventing people from endangering and killing such a beautiful piece of nature for unjustifiable reasons.  The article does go on to say how they are now reproducing and planting clones of the tree, however they will take thousands of years to reach the size of the original.  I would also like to see myself being a part of the solution to these regrettable events.
