Idiots // "Look sweetheart, that's a cow. Even though its emission of methane is real bad for the environment people keep on eating its meat and using its milk way too regularly because they are fucking ignorant and too stubborn to go for some really good alternatives that are already there for the taking. Now go play kiddo, daddy will go help destroy the world a bit more." Or is that not what he's saying there?
Esta es una colonia de la Gran Barrera Arrecifal Australiana que se llama Acropora tenuis. Es una de las especies mas abundantes en la barrera, por lo que muchas investigaciones se han hecho con ella. Por eso fue una de las especies que use en mi tesis de doctorado. Esta foto la tome durante el desove masivo (evento de reprodución sexual) que ocurre una vez al año (foto tomada en el laboratorio). En cada rama puedes ver en la boca de cada pólipo unas esferas rosadas las cuales contienen los huevos y esperma. ⠀
This is a colony of Acropora tenuis one of the most abundant species in the Great Barrier Reef (Australia). Since it is an important specie in the formation of reefs of the GBR, lots of studies have been done with this specie, and that's why it was one of the species I used in my PhD thesis. This photo was taken during the mass spawning (sexual reproduction event) that occurs once a year (photo taken in the laboratory). In each branch you can see in the mouth of each polyp some pink spheres which contain the eggs and sperm, that are called bundles.⠀

Taking a pic with my cellphone with only one hand, isn't really my thing apparently Just enjoyed a quick an simple diner with leftover coleslaw & hot and spicy chickpeas. Simple but absolutely delicious
As sea ice melts due to climate change, more and more of the frozen North is exposed. This means easy access to what’s long been protected under the ice. Recently, destructive fishing fleets have followed the receding ice and moved further and further north. They are now starting to push into the inaccessible areas of the Arctic that used to be covered by sea ice for most of the year.
The destructive fishing fleets use bottom trawling - a method of fishing which involves dragging a trawl (a type of net) along the seabed, scraping an abundance of life from the depths of the ocean. Weighted with heavy metal rollers, the nets smash and crush everything, including centuries-old corals and other bottom fauna like sea-pens and sponges that give life, food and shelter to a vast numbers of species.
But it’s not too late. The Arctic movement is growing every day and we can use the power of our movement to stand up for this fragile and unique ecosystem, and protect it before it’s lost. By highlighting that the lack of protection is exposing one of the world’s most amazing, unique places to devastation by destructive fishing fleets, we can make the urgent need for protection to decision makers around the world. By shining a light on this rare, magical ecosystem, we can help keep destructive fishing fleets away and convince the decision makers that this incredible place needs to be protected, forever.

Join the people's climate movement this April 29th in Washington D.C. And across the US to stand up for our communities and climate. Everything people have struggled esto move forward in the US is in peril. To change everything we need everyone.
I smile at this sustainability hack from Morocco In the riad I stayed at they ask simple things of their guests; like using the leftover water from showering to a) flush toilet b) leave for the staff to water plants with. I'm bringing this idea home
