LOL. Indeed!

"Shiva had committed a common, but dangerous, fallacy: confusing a correlation with causation. (It turns out, for example, that the growth in sales of organic produce in the past decade matches the rise of autism, almost exactly. For that matter, so does the rise in sales of high-definition televisions, as well as the number of Americans who commute to work every day by bicycle.)"

Also, instead of producing more food, population growth could be controlled.

Education and incentives tend to do marvels in no time. It seems universal that only intellectually and culturally oppressed women bear lots of children.

I come from a country that is fighting to go the other way, most peopole have no children these days, it is fairly normal for a couple to decide to have children when reaching the thirties and have at most two children, and this has been going for a few generations...

Black Hole Winds Pull The Plug On Star Formation

Astronomers using ESA’s Herschel space observatory have found that the winds blowing from a huge black hole are sweeping away its host galaxy’s reservoir of raw star-building material. Active black holes not only feed on nearby gas but also expel some of it as powerful winds and jets.

Full story here:

Recently returned from running our Aurora Photography class at the edge of the Arctic.  We had some spectacular auroras.  But tonight my favorite is a faint red aurora over the Milky Way.  Also look lower left and you will see the Andromeda Galaxy.

Wow! kinda stupid, crass, and disrespectful of all that snowden gave up for us.
BUT, really insightful commentary on how to get the message out there. Worth the watch. It's about half an hour long to so make some time.

As spring comes to planet Earth's northern hemisphere, familiar winter constellation Orion sets in early evening skies and budding trees frame the Hunter's stars. The yellowish hue of cool red supergiant Alpha Orionis, the great star Betelgeuse, mingles with the branches at the top of this colorful skyscape. Orion's alpha star is joined on the far right by Alpha Tauri. Also known as Aldebaran and also a giant star cooler than the Sun, it shines with a yellow light at the head of Taurus, the Bull. Contrasting blue supergiant Rigel, Beta Orionis, is Orion's other dominant star though, and marks the Hunter's foot below center. Of course, the sword of Orion hangs from the Hunter's three blue belt stars near picture center, but the middle star in the sword is not a star at all. A slightly fuzzy pinkish glow hints at its true nature, a nearby stellar nursery visible to the unaided eye known as the Orion Nebula.
