Yes, thank you to everyone who gave me a ❤!

💋's to you all!

Please tell me who you folks are, who saw fit to give this old dumbass hearts?
💕 back to you all.

That's awesome!

Thank you for sharing this.

There's ratfucking, hard core racism, then there's

a Greater Good.



It's like fighting a defensive war; you may vehemently disapprove of taking a life but you're fighting to save more lives (WWI and WWII were defensive wars; there have been none since that I know of).

Thank you, Matilda. 🙏

K&R.

This could've gotten more attention had it not been for MFer45's state of our dis-union address.

As I posted in your other thread:

📣🌳 Will These Massive Geoengineering Projects Fix the Earth—or Break It?

Best idea from the article (my hubs and another NASA scientist, a DUer in fact, also had this idea!!):

"Researchers are also looking into launching a giant parasol into space to manage the amount of solar radiation hitting Earth. This idea has been around for decades, but has only recently gained momentum.

For example, a 2018 paper from the Journal of Aerospace Technology and Management describes launching what the authors call the HSS, or Huge Space Shield. The plan is to put a thin, wide sheet of carbon fiber into a Lagrange point, which is a relatively stable point in the complex system of gravitational pulls between the Earth, moon, and sun. The sheet would only block a small portion of solar radiation, but it could be enough to drop global temperatures below the 1.5 degrees Celsius limit set by the International Panel on Climate Change.



We voters need to champion these ideas. Our very lives depend on our actions.

I never tire of watching this.



Well done. A free and unbiased press is so essential that the founding father put in the Constitution.



I KNEW it'd only be a matter of time.

I kept telling the "But-Pence" crowd that Pence is involved and going down too.



"Madame President"! Just ❤ this.

Please, please cross-post this in General Discussion.

This OP needs max attention. These threats need to be recognized as not being in some distant future but here, now. And it will become exponentially worse.

💘 We had a wonderful vet who did this!

Kindest, best vet ever!

He kept his own dog at his clinic for emergency blood transfusions and to visit his patients who were nervous under his care. ❤

He also sent us a sympathy card after having to put our old BC girl down for us. I've kept that card.
He retired after 40+ yrs. We miss him.




K&R this post!

One small thing tho: Sea Shepherd and Greenpeace are two different orgs. I've given to both and support all their actions.

Offer "traditional medicine shops free Viagra."

Great idea! Save many species... For awhile anyway.
