Orangutans in the Nyaru Menteng Orangutan reintroduction project, which houses orangutans whose habitats are threatened by deforestation linked to palm oil.

Their habitat is shrinking primarily due to increasing temperatures and changing rainfall patterns, affecting the availability of food sources. Also, orangutan females are less likely to conceive during periods of low fruit abundance.

Protect our communities, coasts and climate: say NO to seismic blasting!

The negative impacts on entire communities on the Atlantic, Pacific, Gulf of Mexico, and Arctic coast, as well as in the rich marine ecosystems of the region, outweigh by far any foreseeable economic benefits for oil companies.

GREENPEACE — Greenpeace USA report shows pipeline company behind new anti-protest legislation in the US — MACRO WORLD — PLANET EARTH FLOWERS groups

Greenpeace USA report shows pipeline company behind new anti-protest legislation in the US.

Examples of ETP’s harmful corporate behavior include:

  • Damaging at least 380 sacred and cultural sites along the DAPL route, as reported by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe

  • Working with private security firms like TigerSwan that deployed excessive force and military style counterterrorism tactics against Water Protectors while operating without a license in North Dakota

    Hiring TigerSwan again to suppress opposition to the Mariner East 2 Pipeline in Pennsylvania.

  • Aggressive use of eminent domain proceedings to seize private property

  • An egregious spill record that includes 527 incidents from 2002-2017 across ETP, Sunoco, and their subsidiaries’ pipelines, 67 of which contaminated water resources, hundreds of enforcement actions and fines of more than US $355 million since 2000.

  • Greenpeace USA’s report, “Too Far, Too Often: Energy Transfer Partners’ Corporate Behavior On Human Rights, Free Speech, and the Environment”, can be found on the Greenpeace USA website here.

Why are Woodland Caribou so special?

Woodland Caribou are an iconic species that hold national significance for many Canadians, even being shown on the 25-cent coin.  They have adapted to harsh winter weather, have large hooves that act like snowshoes, and are able to survive largely on lichen – a ground organism made up of fungus and algae. They require large tracts of undisturbed natural forest to survive; and because of this, they are often seen as an indicator species for the health of the entire boreal forest. As logging and other industrial activities have further and further disturbed the forest, Woodland Caribou have been suffering.

Many will not know much about the Woodland Caribou, and only a very few will have seen this animal in person. But this unique member of the deer family, found in Canada’s boreal forest, is a remarkable animal and it is threatened with extinction, while a small group of powerful people have enormous influence over its fate.

Children play without wearing any protection at the playground while the air is engulfed with thick haze from the forest fires  in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia.

Children play without wearing any protection at the playground while the air is engulfed with thick haze from the forest fires at Sei Ahass village, Kapuas district in Central Kalimantan province on Borneo island, Indonesia.

Indonesia’s people and environment are paying for the industry’s failure. The country has lost 31 million hectares of forest – an area almost the size of Germany – since 1990. A recent study on Borneo and Sumatra orangutans showed that the population has significantly declined, with destruction of their habitat a leading cause of the crisis. Forest destruction has also contributed to the annual fires and haze crisis that threatens the health of people across Southeast Asia. One study estimated that the 2015 fires crisis contributed to over 100,000 premature deaths.

GREENPEACE — How much of Earth’s biomass is affected by humans? — PLANET EARTH FLOWERS group

PLANET EARTH FLOWERS has over 2,000 members and over 81,000 photos and videos.

Contest — Roses — Time to Vote

We know, even by casual observation, that humanity has disrupted the balance of life on Earth, eradicated habitats, reduced biodiversity, and driven some species to extinction. Now, an updated Census of Earth’s Biomass reveals some details of this transformation of the species diversity on Earth.

Voronoi diagram of global biomass distribution (used with permission from the Bar-On, Phillips, Milo census)

We find out that humans and their livestock now comprise about 96% of all mammal biomass on Earth. All other mammals – whales, sea lions, bears, elephants, badgers, shrews, deer, bear, cougars, rats, wolves, and all the rest – are about 4.2%.

Mammals, including humans and their livestock, represent only about 0.03% of Earth’s biomass. All animals – the mammals plus fish, insects, worms, birds, and others – account for only 0.37% of biomass. The two primary producers of biomass from solar energy – plants and bacteria – still dominate terrestrial and marine life forms, accounting for over 95% of all living biomass.
