In 1979 the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes of Montana became the first in the nation to set aside tribal land—92,000 acres of the Flathead Reservation's mountains and meadows—as wilderness. Since then, the Nez Perce have acquired 16,286 acres of ancestral lands in northeast Oregon that they will manage solely to benefit fish and wildlife. The Assiniboine and Sioux tribes in northeastern Montana are working to bring back bison on the Fort Peck Reservation. Native Lands Native Lands

Is it time for scientists to come out of the closet June 20, 2010 § Increasingly over the last few months I have become less tolerant (on twitter) of scientists, astronomers, astronauts, politicians and other “educated” people who still pretend to believe in god just pander to the masses. I say it is time to come out of the proverbial closest. I think you will find that most people will be quite understanding.

Can you help save the world sitting on you ass July 17, 2010 § Ways YOU can help save the world from home without getting off your ass. You may say “People should get off their ass to help!” My response is: Unfortunately, not all of us can. Whether they be physical, financial, social or just plain weird sometimes circumstances make us feel useless and trapped. Helping others is the best way to feel better about your own life.

July 28, 2010 § The truth is so simple and yet so complex we are all connected. When it comes to the Oceans I just said it on July 28th. What happens in the oceans effects every living organism on the planet. How many times do I have to say that? It doesn’t matter how many times I say it. When will people understand When will people understand
PJZen's The Big Picture Almost every social networking site on the internet requires your to fill out a personal bio section. That “Tell us a little about yourself” box always makes me cringe. It took me weeks to put an “About me” page on this blog. Part of the reason is I find it hard to talk about myself. (I am getting over that.) PJZen's The Big Picture
In 1962 Humble Oil, (now Exxon) ran this ad in Life Magazine: The ad reads: "This giant glacier has remained unmelted for centuries. Yet, the petroleum energy Humble supplies – if converted into heat – could melt it at the rate of 80 tons each second! To meet the nation’s growing needs for energy, Humble has supplied science to nature’s resources to become America’s Leading Energy Company.

Volcanic hazards could become fiercer and more frequent - physic The erupting Icelandic volcano that wrought havoc on European air traffic may have calmed for now, but geologists are warning that volcanic hazards such as this could become more commonplace due to climate change. They believe there is evidence that melting ice is placing an increasing strain on volcanic regions across the globe, which could trigger a range of different geological hazards. These findings appear in a special issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A. Volcanic hazards could become fiercer and more frequent - physic

Petition Now Online – Bring Back Bellamy's People September 19, 2012, 01:10:40 pm by Neil Views: 1651 | Comments: 48 Hey I just really realised that Ricky Gervais claiming to "have developed" the Just Sayin' app is a clever way of shielding him from accusations of, y'know, just doing adverts. Which is what he's doing, along with a long-term viral marketing campaign. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/ricky-gervais-iphone-app-371442 The actor-comedian announces his latest project, Just Sayin'.

As oil continues to leak out of the collapsed Deepwater Horizon well head, researchers are beginning to collect data on how it is changing life in the Gulf of Mexico. Earlier today, Samantha Joye of the University of Georgia in Athens spoke of what they are finding. She said that methane concentrations in a giant underwater plume emanating from the well head are as much as 10,000 times higher than background levels. The consequences of this for life in the gulf are unknown. Gulf oil leak causing upheaval in marine ecology - environment -
"Gasland" . NOW on PBS Week of 3.26.10 Will the boom in natural gas drilling contaminate America's water supply? In the debate over energy resources, natural gas is often considered a "lesser-of-evils". While it does release some greenhouse gases, natural gas burns cleaner than coal and oil, and is in plentiful supply—parts of the U.S. sit above some of the largest natural gas reserves on Earth.
