On December 18, 1999, Julia Butterfly Hill's feet touched the ground for the first time in over two years, as she descended from "Luna," a thousandyear-old redwood in Humboldt County, California.

Hill had climbed 180 feet up into the tree high on a mountain on December 10, 1997, for what she thought would be a two- to three-week-long "tree-sit." The actio...[Read More]

A good and proper aristocrat on the isolated, seemingly backward planet of Haven, Genevieve has been carefully instructed in the Covenants -- the ancient, inflexible laws governing the women of her class. She knows what is expected of her: marriage in her mid-twenties to a groom of her father's choosing, childbirth at age thirty. And then soon afterwards -- as has b...[Read More]

Bighorn Sheep: Contributions of Montana State University Graduate Students to Understanding a Vulnerable Species, 1965-2000 , L. R. Irby


Published in: itune > Ecology,Books,Science & Nature,Life Sciences > green energy | Published on 07/Oct/2019 08:25

2012-05-18T07:00:00Z
During 1965-2000, 21 Montana State University graduate students completed field studies of bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis). Their studies indicate that bighorn sheep can be a viable part of Montana's fauna for the foreseeable future if managers reject the myths that have developed about bighorns. Bighorns need specialized habitat that is not found everywhere, but th...[Read More]

A quake will happen--in fact it's actually overdue. The Cascadia subduction zone is 750 miles long, running along the Pacific coast from Northern California up to southern British Columbia. In ...[Read More]

Afraid of the future? Don't be. When we're armed with the basic facts of climate, we can more easily spot the lies that the corrupt, corporate news media is trying to feed us. Some of those lies are huge.

This small book gives us everything the layman needs to know about climate science.

The warming alarmists attempt to frighten us with things ...[Read More]
