The Ancient Globe


The Ancient Globe is an incredible application where you can see the Earth at different stages that you chose.  You can select age of Earth, when first animals walked, when plants developed, and even where your town would be located millions of years ago.


Austin, Texas 240 million years ago.




The Ancient Globe was created by Ian Webster, while working for Asterank (database of 600K asteroids).  Plate tectonic and paleogeographic maps were produced by C.R. Scotese, PALEOMAP Project

To keep the Globe public, he hosts it on his dinosaur website at:
http://www.dinosaurpictures.org/ancient-earth/.  He developed this globe so that children could visualize the changes they talk of in geology and ecology.

If you have children in school and unless you know all about the Triassic, Jurassic and the Cretaceous periods as well as where the Pangea or Pannotia super continents were located, you should bookmark this: http://www.dinosaurpictures.org/ancient-earth/.

Climate Change or Chaos?


My Peace Globe below indicates the Ten Indicators of a Warming World as provided by National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA.gov).

Whatever you think about climate change, no one is much disputing the fact of global warming.  Now, the only thing to argue about is 1) is it the fault of humanity; and 2) how do we fix it.


Sorry to be so late with this, but I had to free up my blog from the clutches of Google.  I thought since the blog Endangered Spaces was still posted, that all was OK. Wrong. I think I have to get a domain--fast.

Namaste,

Renew Production Tax Credit for Alternative Energy


Featured Action: Tell Congress to Renew the Production Tax Credit Now!

Send a message today!


Congress is delaying renewing the Production Tax Credit, an important financing provision for wind energy. Every day of stalling means more American jobs are in jeopardy. 
Could it be Big Oil & Gas that is persuading our electeds to do their bidding??

Tell Congress to support extending the Production Tax Credit, ensuring a job-creating industry continues to grow.

Global Warming, 1; Birds, 0

According to National Audubon, pollution, habitat destruction and now global warming are hitting birds hard. They have published a list of the top 10 endangered, the 10 Under 10,000,

A Few Under Pressure

  • Piping Plover.  An endearing shorebird, with an estimated 8,000 individuals remaining in the wild. The majority of Piping Plovers winter in the Bahamas, a fact that scientists did not discover until 2011.
  • Black Oystercatcher. This showy all-black Pacific shorebird has a bright red bill and red eyes, making them easy to spot. Population estimates hover around 8,900.  
  • Kirtland’s Warbler. An adult Kirtland’s Warbler weighs less than half an ounce. Numbers fell as low as 200 birds in the late 1980s, but conservation efforts have helped the little songbird rebound to a still-precarious 2,800.  
  • Gunnison Sage-Grouse. A dark and turkey-like grouse. Like the Greater Sage Grouse, males engage in memorably comedic courtship displays. Habitat loss has driven these birds to 2,000 to 5,000 individuals in Western Colorado.  
  • Whooping Crane. America’s tallest bird. Fewer than 500 of these magnificent birds survive in the wild. Hunting drove the Whooping Cranes to the brink – in 1941 only 15 birds remained.
