Mass Extinction is Here

There is no longer any doubt: we are entering a mass extinction that threatens humanity’s existence.

That is the bad news at the center of a new study by a group of scientists including Paul Ehrlich, Bing Professor of Population Studies in biology and a senior fellow at the Stanford Woods Institute. Ehrlich and his co-authors call for fast action to conserve threatened species, populations and habitat, but warn that the window of opportunity is rapidly closing.

Mysterious wave of antelope deaths


Around half of the world's critically endangered Saiga antelope have died suddenly in Kazakhstan since 10 May 2015. The animals die within hours of showing symptoms, which include depression, diarrhoea and frothing at the mouth.

Herd fatality is 100% once infected, with an estimated 40% of the species' total population already dead. More than 120,000 carcasses had been found as of late May, while the estimated total population was only 250,000.

Friendly reminder that religious schools use to force kids to write with their right hand, because they thought being left handed had something to do with the devil. Hmmm that doesn’t sound familiar at all.

Hmm, not even suprised at all.

A California judge just declared abstinence-only sex ed illegal.

A California law passed in 2003 prohibits sex education curriculum that contains “medically inaccurate or biased information.” So when parents found out their kids’ text book taught abstinence until marriage and excluded info about preventing pregnancy and STIs they went to court. A judge agreed — and made history in America.

Sad news of the day: An Airbus A320 with 150 people on board crashed in the French Alps on its way from Barcelona to Düsseldorf.
  • Airline: Germanwings, owned by Lufthansa
  • Flight: 4U9525 - FlightRadar24 - Wikipedia Entry
  • Descended > 25000ft in ~9 minutes, consistent with a controlled quick descent
  • No distress call was received from the plane, but air-traffic control declared an emergency after start of descent (leaving the assigned flight level) and loss of communication.
  • Appearance of the crash site, with a large debris field of the completely obliterated aircraft, is consistent with a high speed impact on the ground, probably near the last known speed of 400 kts (460 mph / 740 km/h).
  • At least one flight data recorder already has been found.
First response and crisis management appears to be very quick, determined and professional, a full blown recovery operation and accident investigation in very difficult terrain is currently underway.

The prison-industrial complex is just a myth…right?

Jesus he didn’t even have us do the damn math. He just said it.

…yeah. I suppose there’s no point in finding flowery rhetoric for it. “Putting people in jail is good for business” is pretty much the size of it.
