Honestly I’m kinda proud of Italy? A country 25 times smaller than Australia with over 60 million people, and a terrible economy with a high rate of unemployment STILL manages to rescue and take in tens of thousands of refugees every year. meanwhile Australia sits here processing refugees offshore in barbaric conditions while reiterating that ‘stopping the boats’ is a priority. can someone tell me how that works????
Please don’t just run off and try to get out as fast as you can. They will might be some people who are handicapped or having problems with their body . It’s to difficult to get them out here then with no harm. We all want after a good time a good travel home. But it will take time to get out of a stadium with over 60.000 people. Just think about it please . We all don’t want to much pain…
this developmental psychology lecture would have been interesting if it weren’t for the fact that it was so goddamn LONG. 😐 usually my professor’s lectures are contained in 30-45 slides, but this one was over 60. i think i’m done for today.
Temperatures in Alaska aren’t just getting warmer. Instead, they’re rising at about twice the rate of the rest of the planet. Over the past 60 years, the average air temperature, state-wide, has increased 3 degrees Fahrenheit, and winters are 6 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than they used to be. True, some of the earlier gains in temperature could be attributed to a natural shift of the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO). But when the PDO shifted back to a cool phase, it wasn’t enough to correct for the underlying pattern of unnatural warming.
The permafrost is melting, and the tundra is slowly sinking
About 80 percent of Alaska sits atop permafrost, and when it thaws, everything else sort of goes with it. Literally: buildings and infrastructure are collapsing as the ground disappears beneath them. “You can see and hear the ice melting,” researcher Ted Schuur recently told USA Today. Since the mid-1980s, the permafrost about three feet down on the Alaskan Arctic coast has already warmed by 6 to 8 degrees Fahrenheit, and more than 70 percent of permafrost land is at risk of sinking as it continues to melt.
Rising seas are lapping at the shores of some of the world’s first climate refugees
Some of the world’s largest glaciers are in Alaska, and Alaska is where we’re seeing some of the fastest loss of glacier ice: for each year between 1994 and 2013, they lost an incredible 75 gigatons of ice to the oceans. The small, northern town of Kivalina is expected to succumb to rising sea levels within this decade; Newtok, further south on Alaska’s west coast, may wash away even sooner.
The state is hot, dry and on fire
It was a hell of a year for wildfires, with 2015 turning out to be Alaska’s second-largest wildfire season on record. That’s par for the course: a combination of climate change and other human activity, like logging and development, has made it so that the total acreage of forest burned each year in the state has increased fivefold since 1943.

i picked out some of my favorites that i hope you guys will like too (most of this list kind of reflects like that mixxmix style):
Edit: it just hit me today that Victoria is actually a nazi sympathizer. I’m an idiot for not realizing this sooner (like during the damn movie or even while I was drawing this) and for calling her a “fave”. This is truly one of the shittiest things I’ve done
