Around the world oceans coral reefs are dying as a result of bleaching, water temperature increases, poor stewardship, vandalism, tourism, and pollution; and worldwide attention is needed to protect them. Now, in an effort to save coral reefs, Hawaii is making an effort to ban certain chemical sunscreens for the impact they are having on the breathtaking coral reefs surrounding the islands.
Hawaiian Senator Will Espero has presented a state congressional bill which would outlaw the sale of sunscreens containing oxybenzone and octinoxate, two UV-blocking chemicals which are disrupting coral reefs as beachgoers are washing tons of this stuff into the oceans.

It wasn’t long ago that the Russian government called for an international investigation into the U.S. moon landings regarding missing samples and photos not released to the public. This created a new wave of interest into what really happened when the U.S. went up there, and led some to question if they even went there at all. The topic is filled with a number of interesting facts and statements from credible people that make one thing abundantly clear: Something fishy is happening on the moon, and we’re not being told about it.

An orca whale that washed up on the coast of Scotland last year was poisoned by environmental pollutants, according to a report released last week.
The Guardian reported last Tuesday that Lulu, the full-grown whale who died, “was a member of the UK’s last resident pod and a postmortem also showed she had never produced a calf. The pollutants, called PCBs, are known to cause infertility and these latest findings add to strong evidence that the pod is doomed to extinction.”
The levels of PCBs, or polychlorinated biphenyls, found in Lulu’s blubber were “more than 100 times the 9mg/kg limit above which damage to the health of marine mammals is known to occur” the Guardian noted. Lulu had 950mg/kg in her blubber. The average orca in the North-Atlantic ocean has 150mg/kg. Continue reading Monsanto Chemical May Leave Orca Pod “Doomed to Extinction”

When still in our mother’s womb, we are one with the primordial essence. In our essence, we are as newborn children. We instinctively do what is good for us, without even having to think about it. We have unconditional confidence in our environment and in others. There is no conflict between our thoughts, our emotions and our instincts.
As our lives progress, our personality changes. We lose the primordial innocence as we are forced to adapt to adulthood in a society that deprives us of individuality and free choice. Our essence is gradually altered through environment, work, relationships and the things that are done to us and the things we do unto others. In our lives, we are victims and perpetrators at the same time, innocent yet responsible. During our life’s journey, we become alienated from our essence, from our true selves. This alienation may cause life to become useless or meaningless, a source of suffering. Continue reading The Higher the Climb, the Better the View
