Perpetual Landscapes

Nature rejuvenates so quickly, so completely. Though we often view ourselves otherwise, we are nature. Forests, lakes, and rivers, clouds and winds, stars and flowers, stupendous glaciers and crystal snowflakes - every form of animate or inanimate existence, leaves its impress upon the soul of man.

Science enhances the moral value of life, because it furthers a love of truth and reverence—love of truth displaying itself in the constant endeavor to arrive at a more exact knowledge of the world of mind and matter around us, and reverence, because every advance in knowledge brings us face to face with the mystery of our own being.

Can’t wait for ski season this year. Would love to hit some jumps like this, but it might take a bit more practice…

When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.

Frack No!
With all of the buzz about fracking recently, I think it’s time we talk about it. What is it and what does it mean?
First of all fracking is the process of extracting natural grass from shale rock layers deep within the earth. It involves drilling deep into the earths crust.
While fairly new, the process has already presented large problems including water and ground pollution. 
   We need to take a stand and say no to fracking!

Keep NC frack free!

Working towards clean water for everyone.

It’s good to see that we are finally finding ways to use technology to help solve some of the world’s water quality issues. Let’s hope that this will improve the ability to quickly recognize and repair water well problems in rural areas. With these new developments we are definitely taking a step in the right direction.

Pacific Plastic Soup 100-fold Increase
The killer soup of microplastic threatens to alter the ocean’s natural environment.

The vast swirl of plastic waste floating in the North Pacific has increased 100-fold over the last 40 years, according to a research paper published Wednesday.
And scientists warned the killer soup of microplastic — particles smaller than five millimeters (one inch) — threatened to alter the open ocean’s natural environment.

Something needs to be done about this. Now.

I’m sure the universe is full of intelligent life. It’s just been too intelligent to come here.
