Sticks and stones will break our bones, but pseudoscience corrupts them for ever… Head Space

Is any science trustworthy? The Marxists accuse conservatives of being Flat Earthers who are anti-science to dehumanize their view, but the Marxists are actually the ones who do not follow the true science model. Science requires a skepticism of its theories until it becomes a fact beyond doubt which very few things are in the […]

by Terrence McCoy / Washington Post

In the middle of last summer came news of a bizarre occurrence no one could explain. Seemingly out of nowhere, a massive crater appeared in one of the planet’s most inhospitable lands. Early estimates said the crater, nestled in a land called “the ends of the Earth” where temperatures can sink far below zero, yawned nearly 100 feet in diameter.

The saga deepened. The Siberian crater wasn’t alone. There were two more, ratcheting up the tension in a drama that hit its climax as a probable explanation surfaced. Global warming had thawed the permafrost, which had caused methane trapped inside the icy ground to exp...

Thousands of protesters have assembled in central London for Britain’s biggest anti-nuclear weapons rally in a generation.

Campaigners gathered from across the world: some said they had travelled from Australia to protest against the renewal of Trident. Others had come from the west coast of Scotland where Britain’s nuclear deterrent submarines are based.

As the huge column of people began moving from Marble Arch after 1pm, the mood was buoyant and spirited despite the cold.



Fallow deer and robins at Ashridge Estate wonderful world of wild

As I approach Ashridge Estate, I always start to look out for the fallow and muntjac deer from the road. In the evenings, I always take extra care in case the deer are crossing, which has happened on occasion right in front of my car.

Then, upon pulling into the car park, with the woodland right next to it, the opportunities to see or photograph wildlife begin.

Ashridge Estate is over 5,000 acres of countryside offering diverse habitats including woodland and open fields and for this reason it is one of the best places in Britain to see fallow deer. Part of the land is in Hertfordshire, including the stunning Ashridge House, and some of the land is in Buckinghamshire.

I visited on Tuesday, the 23rd February 2016, and took the below picture, as I just loved the afternoon sunlight peering through the woodland on the chilly, crisp day. All the pictures in this post are taken on a Canon 400D.IMG_9311

I remembered that last time I went to Ashridge Estate at this time of day, a huge fallow deer herd were grazing in one of the fields by the woodland and near some farm houses. I headed straight there and I was in luck. There, stood a large herd all peacefully grazing in the winter sunshine.

New South Wales: Coal Train and Bulldozers Halted by Forest Defenders Earth First! Newswire

from Front Line Action on Coal


MAULES CREEK and WILLOW TREE, 27 FEB 2016: Today the rail line for coal in north west NSW has again been shut down by activists concerned over Whitehaven’s forest clearing. A bulldozer has also been halted in the Leard Forest forest by 2 women, delaying clearing. These actions follow allegations that Whitehaven has cleared during extreme heat in breach of the conditions of their Biodiversity Management Plan (Media Release 26 Feb 2016).

Whitehaven are clearing the environmentally and culturally significant Leard State Forest, on Gomeroi/Gamilaraay Country, for the expansion of their controversial Maules Creek Mine. These actions prevent any coal reaching port from all mines north of Willow Tree, including the Maules Creek Mine, as well as delaying clearing of the forest.

VINPEARL LAUNCHES SMEAR CAMPAIGN | NAUGHTY. Speak Up For The Voiceless – International Animal Rescue Foundation – Environmental News and Media



The Vinpearl Group fronted by Viet Nam’s most richest man has recently launched a very humorous smear campaign, AGAINST I.A.R.F. Now we don’t normally play smear, or even dirty, but if we’re going to play smear lets pull the big clangers out of the hat here.


We recently ran a trace on where Vinpearl recently purchased some 330+ animals from in South Africa. No, it wasn’t from Harrods, although that wouldn’t surprise us to be honest. The so called ‘professional group’ fronted by some rather illiterate journalists seems to be forgetting that whilst their BIG BOSS MAN may have money, we have experience and some 8.9 million supporters to share share that experience with. Opps.


Who in their right mind purchases animals from hunters, knowing that the money given to them hunters will purchase more animals to kill? BACK in DECEMBER 2015 – The Vinpearl Group purchased lions, tigers, kudu, monkeys, and zebra from SHINGALANA LION & RHINO GAME RESERVE, now did the Vinpearl Group inform their ‘paid journalists to look that one up’? Moreover why are paid ‘Vinpearl journalists supporting killers that support others killers’?



World Trade Organisation smashes India's solar panels industry The Ecologist

The World Trade Organisation (WTO) has found India's huge solar initiative 'guilty' of breaking trade rules, write Dipti Bhatnagar & Sam Cossar-Gilbert, because it gives domestic manufacturers a small 10% quota for the supply of panels, leaving up to 90% for foreign competitors. It's a warning for perils of the entire WTO system, and of even harsher trade rules like those in TPP, TTIP and CETA.
