"So our digital preoccupations do not operate outside of or transcend the physical world. This may be obvious. But it is a fact worth remembering as the biophysical limits of the planet are pushed to the point of collapse by human activity."

Earlier in the week Earth Island Journal shared an interview with Sybelle Foxcroft — the wildlife biologist who’s the key source behind last week’s horrific National Geographic investigative report about illegal cross-border tiger trafficking from the famed Tiger Temple in Thailand 

Here is an update "Five Big Cats Rescued from Thailand’s Tiger Temple - Fate of remaining 142 big cats still uncertain." http://www.earthisland.org/journal/index.php/elist/eListRead/five_big_cats_rescued_from_thailands_tiger_temple/

"In a highly-anticipated decision announced January 15th, a Washington state jury has acquitted five climate activists of their major charge of obstructing a train. The defendants, known as the #Delta5, were prosecuted for demonstrating against oil trains in Seattle’s Delta rail yard, which is owned by Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF)."

Washington judge first in the US to hear “necessity defense” for climate-related civil disobedience, later instructed jury not to consider it
