Facinghistory. White nationalism is a dangerous ideology that was the motivating force behind nearly 350 terrorist attacks between 2011 and 2017.


Recent attacks motivated by white nationalist ideology include the shootings in a Walmart in El Paso, Texas; in mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand; in the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and in the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. White nationalist violence is not a new phenomenon, even if it is taking on new forms. In the United States, the 1979 Greensboro shootings, various attacks committed in the 1980s by “the Order,” and the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, were all motivated by the white nationalist ideology.

But we were surprised to find evidence that some species are starting to come back to these areas.” RELATED: Scientists Are ‘Thrilled’ to Report That Hawaiian Coral Reefs Are Finally Stabilizing After Mass Bleaching The team analyzed 536,000 images. 209 days into the calendar year and we have used up Earth's yearly production of global resources.

And we will have used up all the resources the Earth could regenerate in 365 days. At least, that’s according to the Global Footprint Network, a group that uses an array of mostly United Nations data to calculate what it calls Earth Overshoot Day: the day when humanity overshoots the planet’s ability to recover from what resources we consume within each year—like regrow the trees we cut down, absorb the carbon dioxide we emit, and replenish the seas with the fish we harvest, to name a few.

The other day, my daughter Haley (future elementary teacher) said, "Mom ... you do know Netflix has that series available for kids to watch now, don't you? " I didn't. But now I do.
