The bumblebee was officially added to the endangered species list.
Go plant an organic flower native to wherever you are
Leave your “weeds” alone they probably aren’t hurting anything
Stop using/buying Roundup and all other insecticides, herbicides, pesticides.
If you have a bee problem (which almost never happens) call a local beekeeper! They will remove them safely free of charge
Bumblebees usually nest underground and just wanna be left alone! They won’t hurt you. To prevent destroying their habit during hibernation, avoid mowing yards until April or May. If you do mow, raise the blades to the highest setting
Please save my fat clumsy fuzzy friends I love them and they’re very good pollinators.
Maybe in ten years from now they’ll make a movie about the world today.
Maybe they’ll make a movie about a father in Syria contemplating whether to kill himself, his wife or his children in a desperate attempt to stop the Regime from getting their hands on them.
Maybe they’ll make a movie about an 8 year old Rohingya boy who was thrown into the fire in front of his mother after his village was set alight.
Maybe they’ll make a movie about a young orphaned girl in C.A.R, crying as she remembers her sexual abuse at the hands of UN “peacekeepers” who do as they please without consequences.
Or maybe they’ll make a movie about a daughter in Gaza who picks up the phone to hear an unfamiliar voice letting her know her family has 60 seconds to run before the bombs drop.
And maybe we’ll see it and shed some tears - but we shouldn’t be crying because of the atrocities that occurred.
We should cry because we watched as these horrors unfolded and in our silence betrayed them.
The American Civil Liberties Union took the Trump administration to federal court Saturday night over its new restrictions on immigrants and refugees coming to the U.S. — a policy many have linked to President Donald Trump’s promised Muslim ban.
After about an hour of arguments in a New York City court, a judge granted a stay effectively blocking Trump’s executive order and barring customs officials from detaining immigrants and refugees at U.S. airports, according to Dale Ho, an ACLU representative. Read more
Scientists have discovered six more bursts of radio signals coming from a place in deep space outside our galaxy from where similar signals were detected earlier this year.
A total of 17 such radio signals have been received from this location in space, and given their nature, speculation has already begun on whether we are being hailed by extra-terrestrial life forms. What’s special about these signals is that even though they exist for only a short durations, they tend to generate so much energy that it could parallel the amount of energy generated by our Sun for a whole day! It is this aspect of the signals – as well as the fact that now a total of 17 such signals have been detected so far from the same region in deep space well beyond our galaxy – that is leading to speculation that there may be a sufficiently advanced extraterrestrial civilisation behind them.
The amount of energy in these signals cannot be produced by any conventional means known to man, but could be emitted by an artificial source from a civilisation that has harnessed the power of an entire star, these signals that are being received from well beyond our own galaxy, the Milky Way came six at a time, putting a big question mark on their origin. [the truth is out there]
Executive action has been used to halt DAPL construction in Standing Rock and have it re-routed away from Sioux reservation. This shows the power, magnitude, and spirit of Indigenous resistance, infused by solidarity all across the world.
This does not mean “look, we won!” It means “let’s keep resisting and keep winning!” There are hundreds of oil pipelines across the US, with an overwhelming majority of them running directly through Native and Black communities. There are current pipeline battles happening in Florida, Alabama, and South Caroline, for example, that are not getting as much media attention as Standing Rock who still need our support.
Let it be good news that the people of Standing Rock have radically shaped the course of history, but also let it be a message that we have to continue to do this work. Remember: an Indigenous struggle is an environmental struggle. And an environmental struggle is inherently a PoC struggle.
This is not a chance to praise President Obama for waiting over 5 months to step in and put an end to the madness taking place at Standing Rock, rather
a chance to recognize the power of the people to create change. The power of organizing revolutionary community-based resistance. This is a chance to ask the government why they waited over 5 months to stop the construction of this pipeline through Native land. A chance to realize that there are over 75 pipelines in construction right now across the US, and they are overwhelmingly through Indigenous and Black communities.
With a Trump presidency coming in a month, the Indigenous resistance will need more and more of the solidarity we’ve demonstrated this year. We all will.
*This does not mean “look, we did it! We won!”
This means “let’s continue resisting, let’s keep winning!”*
