Robber fly - Nature photographer Thomas Shahan specializes in amazing portraits of tiny insects. It isn't easy. Shahan says that this Robber Fly (Holcocephala fusca), for instance, is "skittish" and doesn't like its picture taken.

“… 4 - Energy (again)

The natural resources of the planet are finite and will not support the continuation of what you've been doing. We've been saying this for a decade. Watch for increased science and increased funding for alternate ways of creating electricity (finally). Watch for the very companies who have the most to lose being the ones who fund it. It is the beginning of a full realization that a change of thinking is at hand. You can take things from Gaia that are energy, instead of physical resources. We speak yet again about geothermal, about tidal, about wind. Again, we plead with you not to over-engineer this. For one of the things that Human Beings do in a technological age is to over-engineer simple things. Look at nuclear - the most over-engineered and expensive steam engine in existence!

Your current ideas of capturing energy from tidal and wave motion don't have to be technical marvels. Think paddle wheel on a pier with waves, which will create energy in both directions [waves coming and going] tied to a generator that can power dozens of neighborhoods, not full cities. Think simple and decentralize the idea of utilities. The same goes for wind and geothermal. Think of utilities for groups of homes in a cluster. You won't have a grid failure if there is no grid. This is the way of the future, and you'll be more inclined to have it sooner than later if you do this, and it won't cost as much….”

India Launches Star-Studded Campaign to Save Its Tigers

As China prepares to usher in the Year of the Tiger next week, a massive publicity drive has begun in neighboring India, where the big cat is the national animal, to save it from extinction.

Conservation group World Wildlife Fund India has enlisted the support of sports stars and media celebrities to raise awareness of the threat, citing government estimates that there are just over 1,400 tigers left in the wild.

The campaign, fronted by India cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and top footballer Bhaichung Bhutia, was launched at the end of January and has so far seen more than 75,000 people pledge their support on

Stripey, a cute tiger cub who has been featured in the campaign’s print, online and television advertisements, also has more than 70,000 fans on Facebook and over 2,500 followers on Twitter. “Just 1,411 left. You can make a difference,” the ad says, urging people to lobby politicians to do more to protect the animal, which once roamed freely across India and the subcontinent.

Diwakar Sharma, associate director for species conservation at WWF-India, said the organization had been delighted with the response which they hoped would push the issue up the political agenda. “Public opinion is a must for this,” he said. “Public-private partnership can change things …. What we can do is try to influence this public opinion.”

Feared and worshipped in equal measure, the tiger holds a special place for Indians and has become an icon of the country’s cultural and natural heritage. But despite conservation efforts over a number of years, Sharma said the situation was now “critical.” WWF-India has been working since 1973 to protect tigers, leading to the creation of special reserves and protected areas in national parks and wildlife sanctuaries.

The global wild tiger population is thought to be at an all-time low of 3,200, down from about 20,000 in the 1980s and 100,000 a century ago. At the turn of the 20th century, there were an estimated 40,000 tigers in India. As elsewhere across South Asia, tiger numbers are threatened by population growth, with a loss of natural habitat to agriculture and available prey leading them to encroach on human settlements in search of food.

Hunting for sport — now banned worldwide but once seen as a status symbol, particularly during British colonial times — and poaching, particularly for traditional Chinese medicine, have had devastating effects on numbers.

A British-based organization, the Environmental Investigation Agency, said last year that China — which is believed to have fewer than 50 wild tigers — was turning a blind eye to the lucrative illegal trade in tiger parts and pelts.

Many of the body parts, like claws and bones, used for their supposed medicinal properties and as aphrodisiacs, are smuggled to China from India via Nepal.

New Delhi recently asked Beijing for its help to control trafficking but no official agreement was reached. Poachers killed 32 tigers last year and three already this year, according to the Wildlife Protection Society of India.

There has also been criticism surrounding government initiatives to crack down on poaching and wildlife crime.

Forestry officials say Maoist rebels, active in seven of India’s 38 tiger reserves, are also hindering conservation efforts.

“State governments are certainly not fully aware of the situation,” Sharma said. “The Indian federal structure allows states to be independent from central government. However policies are not implemented. “The environment is for all of our well-being, not only for tigers.

“We know that wherever tigers have gone, the forests are totally degraded with an effect on air and water quality.”
