I uploaded a time lapse video I shot with a GoPro camera while the guys from Idaho Tree Preservation were trimming our backyard trees. The shots were taken at 5 second intervals and the whole video is about 45 seconds long.
Below are links to the video on Vimeo and YouTube. Turn on HD and full screen for the high definition view.

 This article written by Adam Lee on Alternet notes that non-belief is far more common than people realize yet politicians dare not declare a non-belief. Furthermore atheists are a large and potentially influential population.
"Imagine the kind of world we could live in if atheists were a political force. It would be a world where secularism is the unquestioned law of the land, where religious groups wouldn't interfere in politics unless they could put forward arguments backed by evidence that anyone could examine, and not just appeals to faith. We'd rely on science and rationality to shape public policy; humanity would heed the voice of reason, rather than gut feelings or superstitious taboos. In this world, the religious arguments propping up tribalism, racism, and the oppression of women would wither away; the decrees of unelected and unaccountable authorities would fade into dust, and democracy and the liberty of the individual would be the guiding principles."
The rise of atheists as political players could have positive effects on the world as a whole.

Annie Leonard response to Obama's SOTU.   
As a lifetime advocate for the planet, I look to the State of the Union address for signals about how the President will act in the coming year. This time, as ever, I listened keenly for good news on how we’ll work together against climate change, keep our oceans clean, prevent toxic pollution and preserve the incredible landscapes we are blessed with. But my biggest highs and lows from President Obama’s speech didn’t come from counting the numbe...

Thanks to the City of Meridian for producing this very informative description of the wastewater cycle from household to and from the treatment plant.  The video explains that the City of Meridian has the first Class A city wide recycled water permit in the entire state of Idaho!

Human Values vs Economics - Naomi Klein "Fighting for Places We Love"

We have..." been making these arguments around economics, but there is nothing more powerful than a values based argument. We’re not going to win this as bean counters. We can’t beat the bean counters at their own game. We’re going to win this, because this is an issue of values, human rights, right and wrong."

I am sharing a link to the Great Backyard Bird Count with my neighbors and friends.  It will be interesting to watch the map to see the accumulation of birds seen around Boise and the Treasure Valley during these 4 days in February.

The Golden Eagle Audubon Society Calendar provides information about this 4 day event.

Description: Great Backyard Bird Count
Anyone can participate in this free event and no registration is needed. Watch and count birds for at least 15 minutes on any day of the count, February 13-16, 2015. Enter your results at http://www.birdsource.org/gbbc/, where you can watch as the tallies grow across the continent. The four-day count typically records more than 10 million observations.  "When thousands of people all tell us what they’re seeing, we can detect patterns in how birds are faring from year to year," said Janis Dickinson, director of Citizen Science at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. "   Go to the link below for more information. http://www.birdsource.org/gbbc/

For the past few years Google Earth has been adding a new kind of 3D imagery in cities around the world. I looked at the recent update on the Google Earth Blog and found Boise and the Treasure Valley has just been added. Other cities in Idaho that contain the new 3D imagery are Pocatello, Idaho Falls, Lewiston and Coeur d'Alene.

I am adding one screen shot here that shows the area outlined in red where you can see the new imagery in Boise and the Treasure Valley when you turn on the 3-D buildings in the Google Earth Browser.

 I I will also add a screen shot showing the new imagery near Barber Park and the Boise River.

1000 Days to the Great American Total Solar Eclipse of 2017.- The sight of a lifetime.

For the past few years I have been visiting places in Oregon, Idaho and Wyoming where the 2017 total solar eclipse will be visible looking for the place I want to be and to take photographs like the last solar eclipse we saw in the Northwest U.S. in 1979.

Below is a link to a recent article that reminds us of this amazing celestial event.
