Hello! Just a girl with a blog. I'll blog about whatever comes to mind and I'll take suggestions on what to blog too so hit the ask button. I'll blog about lots of things. From food, to music, to history, to travel. Whatever I am interested in at the moment.

Aokigahara (青木ヶ原?). There are over 100 dead bodies found in the Aokigahara in Japan every year. It’s known as the place where most suicides, after the Golden Gate Bridge, take place. You can wander around and suddenly come across rotten bodies, guns, razor blades, suicide letters nailed on trees. A sign at the forests entry tries to hold people back,”mind your children, mind your parents,talk about your pain”,a phone number of a suicide hotline under it. Even children were found dead in the Forest. Old cars are standing in front of the forest, broken bicycles. There are tents with dead bodies, arms, legs, even eyes in them lying around. A haunting, but fascinating Place.

He looks sad

Probably cos he’s stuck in a concrete prison cell.

If we ever need to, we can seperate out the humans who have failed in terms of evolution by who look into the eyes of another species and fail to feel empathy. Not unsurprisingly they’d likely be god-fearing folks.

Ponds On The Ocean by NASA Goddard Photo and Video on Flickr

Photo Caption: “If you have never been north of the Arctic Circle, it is easy to imagine that the “ice cap” at the top of the world is a uniform sheet of white. The reality, particularly during the spring and summer melt, is a mottled landscape of white, teal, slate gray, green, and navy.”
“The sea ice atop the Arctic Ocean can—as shown in this photograph from July 12, 2011—look more like swiss cheese or a bright coastal wetland. As ice melts, the liquid water collects in depressions on the surface and deepens them, forming melt ponds. These fresh water ponds are separated from the salty sea below and around it, until breaks in the ice merge the two.”
“Researchers on the NASA-funded ICESCAPE mission—Impacts of Climate on Ecosystems and Chemistry of the Arctic Pacific Environment—have been examining melt ponds, the ice around them, and the waters below for three weeks, with three more to go. Carried by the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Healy, a team of oceanographers, marine biologists, and glaciologists are investigating how changing conditions in the Arctic affect the ocean’s chemical and biological makeup.”
“The science team collects water samples to examine water chemistry and to observe the colonies of plankton growing in the water and on the surfaces of the ice. Other instruments are used to assess how much and how far sunlight is penetrating into—and warming—the Arctic Ocean. Still others are measuring the current systems that move water from the depths to the surface, as well as horizontally across the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas.”

And a whole load of Republicans are threatening to move to Canada in light of this?

Should- should somebody tell them?

No, no, no. Let’s let it be a surprise.

Paul McCartney at the Rio+20 Earth Summit (via makeanewbeginning)

(Source: monchuinne)

It seems madness that we are willing to go to the ends of the Earth to find the last drops of oil when our best scientific minds are telling us we need to get off fossil fuels to give our children a future. At some time, in some place, we need to take a stand. I believe that time is now and that place is the Arctic.
