If you need another reminder why corporations should not be considered people and why banks and other financial institutions need to be limited and controlled, then here you go. I guess these bankers figure that money is more important than anything so what the hell burn down the forests and rape the land. My take, the human capacity for greed and all its destructiveness is facilitated and amplified by unbridled corporations and banks.

The World’s Driest Desert Is in Breathtaking Bloom

The World’s Driest Desert Is in Breathtaking Bloom | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it

"After historic rains, Atacama, Chile is exploding with vibrant wildflowers.  Here's a softer side to the disruptive weather phenomenon known as El Nino: an enormous blanket of colorful flowers has carpeted Chile's Atacama desert, the most arid in the world. The cyclical warming of the central Pacific may be causing droughts and floods in various parts of the world, but in the vast desert of northern Chile it has also caused a vibrant explosion of thousands of species of flowers with an intensity not seen in decades."

Amazing Nature!

Kevin Nguyen's curator insight, November 2, 2015 12:32 PM

Wow! This is such an amazing thing to see happened in the driest place on Earth. The disruptive weather phenomenon, El Nino really made this place come to life by bringing rainfall and floods. A spectacular site to see, that in the most harshest physical environment, life can flourished.

Animas River Mine Waste (PHOTOS) Mankind and #pollution | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it

View past and continuing Animas River coverage here. Josh Stephenson / Durango Herald. The Animas River in Colorado has turned yellow after being contaminated with three million gallons of wastewater that leaked from a gold mine. Let's pray for the Animas river basin & ecosystem, for Durango, and for the Navajo farming communities downstream who depend on that river water; let's pray the EPA restores the Animas River.

The world's megacities that are sinking 10 times faster than water levels are rising

The world's megacities that are sinking 10 times faster than water levels are rising | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it
Scientists have issued a new warning to the world’s coastal megacities that the threat from subsiding land is a more immediate problem than rising sea levels caused by global warming.


A new paper from the Deltares Research Institute in the Netherlands published in April identified regions of the globe where the ground level is falling 10 times faster than water levels are rising - with human activity often to blame.

In Jakarta, Indonesia’s largest city, the population has grown from around half a million in the 1930s to just under 10 million today, with heavily populated areas dropping by as much as six and a half feet as groundwater is pumped up from the Earth to drink.

The same practice led to Tokyo’s ground level falling by two meters before new restrictions were introduced, and in Venice, this sort of extraction has only compounded the effects of natural subsidence caused by long-term geological processes.

Huge problem when combined with sea level rise

Casey Lysdale's curator insight, November 28, 2016 12:43 PM
Could subsistence in megacities becoming a bigger threat than sea level rise? The population rise caused an increase in groundwater extraction practices which made the ground sink over six feet in Indonesia's largest city. The solution is to stop pumping groundwater and seek alternative forms of obtaining drinking water. Effects of land subsistence combined with rising sea levels can leave many coastal cities into project Atlantis.

#Timelapse of 30 Years of Human Impact on #Earth #environment #climate | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it
A new interactive project from Google, NASA and the US Geological Survey.

Since the 70s, NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey have been amassing satellite images of our planet as part of the Landsat program, revealing a record of change over time: cities expanding, lakes and forests disappearing, new islands emerging off the coast of rising metropolises like Dubai. These historic pictures show stunning change across the earth's surface, in both our natural environments and our man-made ones.

 

Three decades of global change can be viewed digitally in a recent project between NASA, the USGS, TIME, Google, and theCREATE Lab at Carnegie Mellon. Landsat images taken between 1984 and 2012 have been converted into a seamless, navigable animation built from millions of satellite photos. As Google wrote this morning on its blog: "We believe this is the most comprehensive picture of our changing planet ever made available to the public."

 

Visit the link for more details and to view a few of the GIFs Google has created showing some of the most startling pockets of change...

Lakes around the world are rapidly warming #extinction #greenpeace

Lakes around the world are rapidly warming #extinction #greenpeace | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it
Climate change is rapidly heating up lakes around the world, threatening freshwater supplies and ecosystems across the planet, according to a study spanning six continents.

More than 60 scientists took part in the research, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters and announced today at the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union.

"Our knowledge of how lakes are responding to global change has been lacking," said Henry Gholz, program director in the Division of Environmental Biology at the National Science Foundation, which funded the research. "That has made forecasting the future of lakes -- and the life and livelihoods they support -- very challenging. These newly reported trends are a wake-up call to scientists and citizens, including water resource managers and those who depend on freshwater fisheries."

 

The study found that lakes are warming an average of 0.61 degrees Fahrenheit each decade. That's greater than the warming rate of the oceans or the atmosphere, and it can have profound effects, the scientists say.


At the current rate, algal blooms, which ultimately rob water of oxygen, should increase by 20 percent over the next century. Some 5 percent of the blooms will be toxic to fish and animals.


Emissions of methane, a greenhouse gas 20 times more powerful than carbon dioxide, will increase 4 percent over the next decade. "Lakes are important because society depends on surface water for the vast majority of human uses -- not just for drinking water, but manufacturing, energy production, irrigation and crops," said paper co-author Stephanie Hampton of Washington State University. "Protein from freshwater fish is especially important in the developing world."

Unlike polar bears, pandas or peregrine falcons, trees and their demise typically do not generate much passion or protest. But the 180,000 km2 of tree cover being lost each year represents a serious destabilising force on the current biosphere.

Arctic sea ice may set a new record, a low wintertime ice extent, which is another sign of the influence of global warming as well as this unusual winter.

Over $30M spent last year on lobbying to keep GMOs hidden in foods

 

(NaturalNews) Guess who spends the most money lobbying on agricultural lobbying? If you answered, "Monsanto," you're correct. Most of their efforts, of course, are focused on lobbying for GMOs -- to keep them legal and keep them hidden in foods.

This will change only when the power in the hands of the public becomes greater than the pull the corporations have on our elected officials. Who do our elected officials represent? Us, the common people or the huge corporations? If you said the latter, you are correct.
CineversityTV's comment, July 3, 2013 8:11 AM
only huge corporations will benefit, the people will get sick. Goofd for big pharma.
Dane Austin's curator insight, March 10, 2014 11:48 AM

I think it is a really bad idea to keep GMOs hidden because the people really need to know what they are consuming.

The Sixth Mass Extinction Is Upon Us. Can Humans Survive? | Messenger for mother Earth | Scoop.it

May 6, 2013 Newsweek, The Daily Beast

Are we in the first act of a mass extinction that will end in the death of millions of plant and animal species across the planet, including us? Proponents of the “sixth extinction” theory believe the answer is yes.

Five mass extinctions have nearly wiped out life on earth. As Annalee Newitz writes in her new book, the sixth is coming... http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2013/05/06/the-sixth-mass-extinction-is-upon-us-can-humans-survive.html?source=socialflow&account=newsweek&medium=twitter
