Russia Issues Grim Report On North American Magnetic Anomaly Sorcha Faal arrive avec une explication qui possède un certain mérite faute de mieux, les Russes ont détectés une anomalie magnétique. A grim report prepared by Commander-in-Chief of the Air Force Lieutenant-General Viktor Bondarev on the just completed scientific mission of North America carried out by 4 Tupolev Tu-95 strategic aircraft and 2 Ilyushin Il-78 aerial refueling tankers that “electronically swept” for “magnetic anomalies” from Alaska to California warns that a “catastrophic event” may be nearing for this region. US officials, it should be noted, characterized this purely scientific mission as a “bombing run” that came within 50 miles of California, but which their Air Forces were able to repel by their launching of F-15 fighter jets. Russian concerns relating to “magnetic anomalies”, it is important to note, are related to the rapidly shifting north magnetic pole which since 2005 has been moving at a rate of 40 kilometers (25 miles) a year from Arctic Canada toward Siberia.
More than 44,000 people came together to set the Guinness World Record for reforestation. A group in Ecuador set a world record over the weekend by planting nearly 650,000 trees in a single day. Agence France-Presse reports that on May 16, 2015, nearly 45,000 people took part in the largest single-day reforestation project ever. In total, 647,250 trees (and more than 220 species of plants) were planted on roughly 5,000 acres of land, marking a new Guinness World Record. Woo!

Maximising Canada’s Natural Resources - Responsible Canadian Energy In Global Markets - The International Resource Journal By Angus Gillespie From coast to coast Canada is known for its overwhelming richness as it pertains to a variety of different natural resources. Yet there often seems to be an almost apologetic stance from Canadians when it comes to delivering those resources to international markets for domestic economic gain. It’s a mindset at least two of our Canadian premiers are aggressively seeking to alter.

The Shift Is On – Magnetic North Pole Now Racing A Mile A Day by Zen Gardner This is some terrific home research, tracking the movement of the magnetic north pole. It’s apparently still picking up speed and according to this researcher should reach Siberia at least within 2 years. He posits that according to experiments he has done, when it reaches the 40 degree latitude a violent shift could be precipitated as it quickly moves to 40 degrees south and re-stabilizes there. Guess we’ll see.
Setting a country alight: Indonesia's devastating forest fires are manmade We are witnessing the worst manmade environmental disaster since the BP gulf oil spill. Huge, out-of-control fires rage through the forests of Indonesia – and the source of many is the practice of deliberately burning the land to clear it for palm oil and paper products. Thousands of fires have been lit to clear land simply because it is 75% cheaper than other methods. By burning down forests companies can get access to the land and can commence industrial pulp and palm oil plantations. The blazes are occurring in the peatland forests of Kalimantan and Sumatra, which is a unique wetland ecosystem home to threatened species.
Playful seal pup attempts to catch a wave with surfers in France Bertrand Chaussade recorded surfboard encounter with mounted camera Small seal, nicknamed 'You,' came over for a pat and a ride on the boardBertrand said of the sweet seal: 'It was like playing with a little dog' By Katie Amey for MailOnline Published: 09:13 GMT, 6 December 2014 | Updated: 16:50 GMT, 6 December 2014 This attention-seeking seal just wants to play! A new video, with footage captured using a camera mounted on a surfboard, shows an adorable seal climbing all over the surfers and their boards in Lacanau, France. What started off as a normal morning on the water for Bertrand Chaussade and his friends, was quickly hijacked by the small animal, nicknamed 'You,' who was also eager to hang ten.
REDD: Protecting climate, forests and livelihoods Deforestation is a global issue. Beyond its destructive impacts on biodiversity and the livelihoods of forest-dependent people, it is a major driver of climate change and accounts for roughly a fifth of global greenhouse gas emissions. The bulk of carbon dioxide emissions come from deforestation in just seven tropical countries, including Brazil and Indonesia. REDD — 'reducing emissions from deforestation and degradation' — could offer a way forward, as IIED's growing body of REDD research and reports reflects. What is REDD? 19 Magical Photos of Animals In Winter We’ve written about how the world around us changes during the winter, but that’s not the only thing that changes; throughout the animal kingdom, birds and beasts that live in colder climates have special adaptations to help them survive the winter’s harsh weather. The animals in some of these photos may look like they’re freezing, but that’s not 100% certain – in most cases, the photographers are probably colder than the animals that they’ve photographed. Mammals like foxes, cats and other furred critters have to maintain constant body temperatures, so they often accrue stores of body fat and grow additional coats of winter fur to help themselves cope with the cold. These winter coats create an extra layer of insulating air between their skin and the cold air outside, and sometimes even grow in white to help them camouflage themselves in their new environment.
The Electric Earth Oct 12, 2005 The Electric Earth The Earth is an electrified body, moving in a plasma. We who stand on its surface are seldom aware of its electrical properties. That's because we live in balance with the Earth's electric field. Similarly, a bird on an electric wire has no idea that high-energy currents of electricity are flowing beneath her feet. The Eco-Apocalypse in Indonesia That No One is Talking About Alex Pietrowski, StaffWaking Times Some of the most devastating fires the world has ever seen are happening right now in Indonesia, and this unfolding disaster is getting little attention. Annual fires during the dry season have become typical in the last 20 years or so as slash and burn rainforest farming techniques have ravaged this once pristine part of the world, but now this year they are catastrophic. Some 5000 fires have burned in Borneo alone in just the last 2 months.
Three seals found dead on Porthmadog beach including one beheaded Three seals have found dead on beach over the last three weeks, one of which had been beheaded. A member of the public, who does not wish to be named, uncovered the gruesome discoveries three weeks in a row at Morfa Bychan near Porthmadog, which is also known as Black Rock Sands. The person who found the dead creatures on the beach, with the most recent discovery being made just this week, believes that the seals were deliberately killed — though no eyewitnesses to any such incident have come forward yet. The person added: “There is no reason why anyone would want to kill such a creature.
