"For the first time since the dinosaurs disappeared, humans are driving animals and plants to extinction faster than new species can evolve, one of the world's experts on biodiversity has warned.

 #Conservation experts have already signalled that the world is in the grip of the "sixth great #extinction" of species, driven by the destruction of natural #habitats, #hunting, the spread of alien predators and #disease, and #climatechange.

However until recently it has been hoped that the rate at which new species were evolving could keep pace with the loss of diversity of #life. "Measuring the rate at which new species evolve is difficult, but there's no question that the current extinction rates are faster than that; I think it's inevitable," said Stuart.

The #IUCN created shock waves with its major assessment of the world's biodiversity in 2004, which calculated that the rate of extinction had reached 100-1,000 times that suggested by the fossil records before humans. The rate of loss could reach 10,000 times the background rate in two decades, could be correct.

Extinction is part of the constant #evolution of life, and only 2-4% of the species that have ever lived on #Earth are thought to be alive today.

Only 869 extinctions have been formally recorded since 1500, however, because scientists have only "described" nearly 2m of an estimated 5-30m species around the world, and only assessed the conservation status of 3% of those, the global rate of extinction is extrapolated from the rate of loss among species which are known. In this way the IUCN calculated in 2004 that the rate of loss had risen to 100-1,000 per millions species annually – a situation comparable to the five previous "mass extinctions" – the last of which was when the dinosaurs were wiped out about 65m years ago". #extinctionisforever #extinctionisnow #govegan #globalwarming #humans #humanrace

When people have a hard time I will be there for them. Pat their should and cheer them up. 
I will help them get up and keep fighting. 
But when I'm the person who needs help. 
They will act like they don't know me and turn their heads. 
By now I'm used to this. 
So I don't need anyone anymore. 
So thank you for nothing....

I won't make a production of what's going on in my head
Chuck pebbles at it
And a hollow sound will return
For it handles past tense pain as none at all
Yesterday's grim face lost the map to my door
Rather what knocks
Is this silver triangle
Ringing from present to future to nothingness
It's so dense, the feeling
Knowing the rich pleasure of adaptation
There's no dust stuck in the corners of my dome
Only the heat from sunshine
And constant cyclic motion 
Breathe with me
Taste the new - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

So this brilliant scientist called Nikola Tesla, tried to give the world 🌎 free unlimited energy, actually he did 🤔 During one of his experiments and “demonstrations”, he created a massive explosion now known as the Tunguska explosion in the Forests of Siberia in 1908, which was 1000 times more powerful than the Hiroshima Nagasaki atomic bomb. He said he could channel this energy to ANY part of the earth 😮
.

Anyways, the banking mogul and industralist, JP Morgan cut his funding saying “If we gave the world free energy, how will the economy run?”🤷‍♀️ And So humanity has had to settle for Mr Tesla’s “lesser” innovation, The Alternating Current, which is the distribution system of electricity the world currently uses in power generation and distribution 💡
This piece is titled: Ionization Energy and it’s dedicated to one ☝️ of the most brilliant minds to walk our earth, Nikola Tesla 🙏 .

"Nothing is more memorable than a smell. One scent can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting, yet conjure up a childhood summer beside a lake in the mountains; another, a moonlit beach; a third, a family dinner of pot roast and sweet potatoes during a myrtle-mad August in a Midwestern town. Smells detonate softly in our memory like poignant land mines hidden under the weedy mass of years. Hit a tripwire of smell and memories explode all at once."

The ship that brought us here, still shiny. In half a year, at the end of its mission, the multilayer insulation on the outside will be bleached and faded by the harsh space weather, a never ending bombardment of destructive rays and particles.
