If you are passionate about the issue of climate change, you will find this fascinating. The Dutch government is being sued by some of its citizens for failure to take action to limit climate change to 2 degrees. The case was filed in 2012, and tomorrow, April 14, 2015, Urgenda et al get their day in court in the Netherlands. #climatechange  
Full information in #english and in #dutch on Urgenda's website. It will be great to see if a court decides that yes, the courts can take action against states that fail their duty of care towards their citizens.
#Livestreaming tomorrow from the courtroom (I think) on Urgenda's website.

This is a really really cute store in old #amsterdam . Modern and attractive jewelry. I am very much hoping mimi can make me a replacement for a lost earring :-(   But if not, maybe I will fall in love with something she has made!

Is this a fab picture or what??!
GAF is creating the Double Edged Sword Against Climate Change with the combination of reforestation projects and clean tech energy sources (solar & wind) beginning with the Heart Project! In this project GAF is rebooting 98 hectares of degraded forest land where 1million trees will be planted in the Atlantic Rain Forest using electric utility vehicles (Green MotorSport) to transport seedlings and solar panels and/or wind turbines for sustainable energy in the Atlantic Rain Forest. GAF needs your help! Please go to our reboot page and make your tax deductible donation: http://tinyurl.com/c9mxw4k Thank you!

Where on the planet is there water as clear as that combined with a light sea bed? Anyone know the place?
Boats that hover?

Or the clearest waters ever?

Hooorah- check this out. The best way to work against climate change is to save forests AT THE SAME TIME as replanting trees. These people are working at it. Yoda would certainly donate and support them :-D

Woooweee!  Gorgeous tree! I never think of trees as 'hot', but this one is.
Here we go, the Tree of the Week: Meet Erythrina speciosa, a very striking tree indeed. Enjoy.

Hey everyone!  I want to make you aware of something that happened to me here on Google+.  I wrote a private message - that I Shared Privately - with someone on google+.  Thankfully nothing confidential.  Because it  SHOWED UP in SEARCH RESULTS. Image attached.  It's possible that it showed up only to me, but it's not clear.  Are we at all safe on this site?

IMHO this is an excellent article. It provides a way to understand what really is going on - and what lies beneath that.  How to start making changes becomes possible.  Well done CEO of HootSuite!
