a flash of a firefly in the night

A little while and I will be gone from among you, whither I cannot tell. From nowhere we came, into nowhere we go. What is life? It is a flash of a firefly in the night. It is a breath of a buffalo in the winter time. It is as the little shadow that runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset. The Indian leader Crowfoot’s dying words, overlooking the Bow River in Southern Alberta, April 25, 1890

Little bags of shit

They walk their dogs on the beach. They scoop their dog’s shit into little plastic bags. Then they toss it just off the beach in te brush where they can’t see it. As we all do. We make our waste – radioactive and otherwise. We put it into little containers and toss it where we can’t see it. We hope it is gone because we can’t see it. But it hasn’t gone away. All the farwaway places of our little blue planet, filled with little bags of shit.

Habitat destruction = Extinction

In the last 500 years, human activity has forced 816 species to extinction (or extinction in the wild). 25 percent of all amphibians, and 34 percent of fishes are threatened with extinction. It is estimated that every day one species goes extinct. In the last 200 years, 500 recorded species in the U.S. have become extinct, more than half of these extinctions occurred since 1980. Experts agree that the number-one cause of extinction is habitat destruction.
