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….”

Chinese gov't invests heavily in combating land pollution

China's rapid economic development over past years has strained its environmental capacity, as evidenced by a national land survey showing medium or heavy pollution in 50 million acres of arable land, which threatens the nation's grain supply and food safety.

The figure was contained in the findings of the second national land survey, put forth by Wang Shiyuan, vice minister of the Ministry of Land and Resources, on Dec. 30.

In 2011 Zhou Shengxian, minister of environmental protection, had already reported at a meeting of the standing committee of the 11th National People's Congress that 150 million acres of arable land, or 8.3% of the total, had been polluted.

To prevent further deterioration of the problem, the State Council is aiming to clarify land status and establish a strict environmental protection system for land by 2015.

To clarify land status, the Chinese government is conducting a comprehensive examination of the pollution of land by heavy metals, as a prelude for the production of a national land pollution map.

In contrast to the extensive awareness of water and air pollution among Chinese people, many people are ill informed about land pollution, according to the Chinese-language National Business Daily.

Three major sources of land pollutants are industrial and mining emissions, abuse in the use of chemical fertilizer and pesticides, and illegal disposal of waste.

Land pollution, for all its obscurity, is a long-term problem which is not easily rectified, and which could have grave consequences threatening the nation's grain and food safety, according to Qian Guanlin, vice director of the Population, Resources, and Environmental Committee, under the National Political Consultative Conference.

In a report published in 2013, the Ministry of Environmental Protection noted that China's land pollution is discouraging, pointing to serious land pollution in areas with many heavy-polluting enterprises, areas with industrial clustering, mining and outlying areas.

Qian Guanlin said that resolving land pollution is a formidable task, involving the resettlement of workers when moving polluting enterprises and compensation for the economic loss of farmers and for the damage to people's health, adding that if this is not delicately handled it risks disturbing the balance of social harmony and stability.

Wang Shiyuan reported that the Chinese government will spend several tens of billions of yuan annually rehabilitating polluted land and coping with excess groundwater consumption in the coming years.
