Mom Abandons Her Baby, Now Watch What The Cameraman Does. UNBELIEVABLE! It all started one sunny spring morning, when a YouTube user named Darius watched two baby whitetail deer being born in his backyard. He noticed of the babies had an injured leg and struggled to keep up with Mom. Sadly, the baby’s mother and sibling abandoned him right there on Darius’ property. Knowing the baby would surely die on her own, the homeowner — and passionate animal lover — decided to take in the fragile fawn and nurse her back to health. “I do not support keeping wild animals as a pets, but this was special situation,” Darius said.

Big Oil’s decades of deception: Report reveals that Exxon’s known the truth about climate science since 1981 While evaluating the potential impact of developing a gas field it was interested in off Indonesia, ExxonMobil found one major reason for concern: the field in question was 70 percent carbon dioxide. If the field were developed, and that gas vented into the atmosphere, it could become the “largest point source of CO2 in the world,” accounting for a full one percent of climate change-causing emissions. According to Leonard S. Bernstein, a former chemical engineer at the company, Exxon recognized the potential for global warming concerns to lead to regulations that would impact the project and others like it. The year was 1981. The Union of Concerned Scientists has brought to light Bernstein’s claims, which he first made in an email posted online last October, as part of a new report.

EWAO Continued Research Supports The ‘Water Has Memory’ Theory These amazing discoveries about the properties of water could revolutionize our world! By MindBodySoulSpirit Filmmaker and mystic ecologist David Sereda discussed some of the amazing properties of water– it may actually have memory and consciousness, he said. Human beings are mostly made up of water and he suggested that restructured water could have healing properties on their bodies. An example that Serada gives is how restructured water can transform polluted water into clean, fresh, and palatable drinking water!

In The 1950s, Wives Were Expected To Do THIS For Their Husbands. This Is Crazy?!? It’s so fascinating to learn about how people used to live — especially when we discover that not much has really changed. However, sometimes you come across some old traditions that you simply can’t believe people ever followed — like these odd dating rituals throughout history. But what women in the 1950s were expected to do for their husbands? Well, those traditions have certainly flown right out the window! In May of 1955, Housekeeping Monthly published an article entitled, “The Good Wife’s Guide,” detailing all the ways that a wife should act and how best she can be a partner to her husband and a mother to her children.

Progress Is a Double-Edge Sword. That's Why It's so Important We Colonize Mars by Natalie Shoemaker Stephen Hawking believes that despite all the progress humanity has made in advancing science and technology over the years, we are also creating a number of "new ways things can go wrong.” We are at risk of facing a disaster of our own making. "Although the chance of a disaster to planet Earth in a given year may be quite low, it adds up over time, and becomes a near certainty in the next thousand or 10,000 years,” he told the BBC. Hawking has made his concerns known about the advancements being made in artificial intelligence.

Beth Moon Photographs The World’s Oldest Trees Illuminated By Starlight Ancient trees affected by cosmic rays are the subject of The “Diamond Nights” project by San Francisco-based photographer Beth Moon. Moon has spent the last 14 years photographing the world’s oldest trees in daylight, but this series captures them at night. Her photos feature primarily baobab and quiver trees in South Africa, Botswana, and Namibia.

What's Really Warming the World? Climate deniers blame natural factors; NASA data proves otherwise Climate scientists tend not to report climate results in whole temperatures. Instead, they talk about how the annual temperature departs from an average, or baseline. They call these departures "anomalies."

Guy Hides Camera In Bucket Of Water To See Who Comes To Drink, And Result Doesn’t Disappoint A video showing desert critters secretly filmed approaching a water bucket to quench their thirst is going viral. We see different creatures, from bees, to chickens, to a donkey and a rabbit.

I’m Speechless. For 15 years, conservationist Damian Aspinall has been working to reintroduce captive gorillas to the wild. In 2003, Damian released Djalta and Bimms — two western lowland gorillas he raised from when they were babies — into the forests of West Africa. Over the years, Damian revisited the pair of gorillas, but his daughter Tansy hadn’t seen them in 12 years. So, in 2014, Damian brought Tansy into the wild to try and find Djalta and Bimms. He wasn’t sure if they would remember Tansy, the once little girl who was raised right alongside her gorilla friends. “I was considering whether it was safe for Tansy to come on land and see Djalta and Bimms,” Damian says in the following video.

India leads world in environmental conflicts There are more environmental conflicts in India than any other country, and more clashes are over water (27%) than any other cause, according to the recently released Global Environmental Justice Atlas (EJAtlas). India has 222 listed conflicts – in proportion to population, there are many more – followed by Colombia and Nigeria with 116 and 71 conflicts, respectively, according to the EJAtlas, an interactive map of 1,703 global ecological conflicts, categorised by cause, such as water management, waste management, fossil fuels and climate justice, and biodiversity conservation. With India currently facing the worst crisis in a decade and on course to becoming “water-scare” within nine years, as IndiaSpend reported last month, the scale of the conflicts listed in the Atlas further indicate a worsening situation. The EJAtlas is a work-in-progress and hopes to add more cases over the coming years. Most water conflicts in Himachal Pradesh, most over hydroelectric projects
