Science going back to dark ages

Science going back to dark ages | Mr Tony's Geography Stuff | Scoop.it
The Prime Minister has declared war on the Australian renewable energy industry, the environment and science itself.
Tony Hall's insight:

This is so very sad. And frustrating. I get that Australia's current wealth/economic health is largely due to the mining industry. However, I don't get that people don't (or won't!) see that can't last forever. To cut the things mentioned in this article is just plain dumb. To quote Gough Whitlam, "it's time!"

When Earth is Scarred Forever

When Earth is Scarred Forever | Mr Tony's Geography Stuff | Scoop.it
Our planet is covered in pockmarks so deep that they can be seen from space. Some were caused by asteroid strikes, but most are the result of human meddling. Here are some of the most incredible examples of the scarred Earth.
Tony Hall's insight:

This is just amazing! And not in a good way. These are some deep, deep holes in the ground! A testament to the human desire for "stuff". Very sad actually.

Dawning of the Anthropocene age

Dawning of the Anthropocene age | Mr Tony's Geography Stuff | Scoop.it
Earth is entering a new epoch and this time it's not ice ages or meteorites causing it: it's one humans have helped bring about.
Tony Hall's insight:

This is an interesting article. It's actually the second I've read in the last few days about the 'anthropocene'. I think it is a thing now. Something I do find hard to take though, is the notion that we must save the planet. We don't. The planet will outlast humanity by a long way. Nonetheless, what is discussed in the article is worthwhile in terms of prolonging humanity's existence.
