Louis HarrisonWhen ice shelves melt they either slow the ocean jet stream or their fresh water can suddenly stop the ocean jet stream. This is what caused the last ice age. Within 45 days after the ocean jet stream shutting dowm at the start of the ice age ovet 1,000 feet of ice covered two thirds of the Earth. Scientists believe only 1 to 10 million humans will survive another large scale ice age. Our envirnmental group has been working to prevent such an event however I believe humans could briefly witness a sigificant ice age that virtually wipes out humanity.1 week ago · 5

These parks \ Monuments are not yours Mr. Trump or the Governments to sell. They are the property of the American People!

Camille WaltersWhile out in the yard the other day ,something told me go move your truck cover. As I went over I noticed a toad looking at me with a snake attached to him. I pulled snake off the toad to save him. Then I came to question the snakes purpose. The symbol of pure torture to toad and roddents that may cross the snakes path. I rushed the toad to safety and tried to clean up the mess of snake saliva and blood off of him . He returned to harmony. Snakes are the symbols of Doctors. The medicine that was mostly tested on in times of war. I know I have many old medical text books. Filled with hand drawn animations of injured war veterans. When will we live in harmony. Knowing we all belong we just need changes . health. Sustainable living. And a place to keep us out of harms way and may we be protected from the slow devouring snakes of the world.

Elisabeth AkersNeed your help!!!!In botany, a tree is a perennial plant with an elongated stem, or trunk, supporting branches and leaves in most species. In some usages, the definition of a tree may be narrower, including only woody plants with secondary growth, plants that are usable as lumber or plants above a specified height. Trees are not a taxonomic group but include a variety of plant species that have independently evolved a woody trunk and branches as a way to tower above other plants to compete for sunlight. In looser senses, the taller palms, the tree ferns, bananas and bamboos are also trees. Trees tend to be long-lived, some reaching several thousand years old. The tallest known tree, a coast redwood named Hyperion, stands 115.6 m (379 ft) high. Trees have been in existence for 370 million years. It is estimated that there are just over 3 trillion mature trees in the world. A tree typically has many secondary branches supported clear of the ground by the trunk. This trunk typically contains woody tissue for strength, and vascular tissue to carry materials from one part of the tree to another. For most trees it is surrounded by a layer of bark which serves as a protective barrier. Below the ground, the roots branch and spread out widely; they serve to anchor the tree and extract moisture and nutrients from the soil. Above ground, the branches divide into smaller branches and shoots. The shoots typically bear leaves, which capture light energy and convert it into sugars by photosynthesis, providing the food for the tree's growth and development. Flowers and fruit may also be present, but some trees, such as conifers, instead have pollen cones and seed cones; others, such as tree ferns, produce spores instead. Trees play a significant role in reducing erosion and moderating the climate. They remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store large quantities of carbon in their tissues. Trees and forests provide a habitat for many species of animals and plants. Tropical rainforests are one of the most biodiverse habitats in the world. Trees provide shade and shelter, timber for construction, fuel for cooking and heating, and fruit for food as well as having many other uses. In parts of the world, forests are shrinking as trees are cleared to increase the amount of land available for agriculture. Because of their longevity and usefulness, trees have always been revered, with sacred groves in various cultures, and they play a role in many of the world's mythologies.1 week ago · 1
