"If you missed the special on Rachel Carson this past week on Public Television, here is a link to it. Two hours long but well worth the time. Much more about her life, but also a good telling of the evolution of regulation and chemical problems. After 50 years it looks like we’ve made little progress and are being subjected to the same excuses and evasions as Carson was, but the the damage is far more pervasive and the stakes much higher. The recent decision to put the Rusty Patched Bumblebee on the Endangered Species List is further evidence that the environmental poisoning is deep and wide. How many other life forms are going extinct that we don’t even know about? Many of you are too young to remember the Rachel Carson years, but this is an important part of pesticide history, take the time to understand what’s gone before." ~Tom Theobald

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.

even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,
