Good article describing the "Anthropocene Myth" - the epoch of humanity that is the new geological force transforming the planet beyond recognition.... All humans are shitters and burners - Therefore;  "If everyone is to blame, then no one is."  "If business-as-usual is the outcome of human nature, how can we even imagine something different?"

Our Epic Future Coalition provides a very interesting interactive Clean Energy video and web site.

There is a way to power our lives without dirty energy. There is a solution to climate change without nuclear reactors. We can solve the climate crisis and power our lives from 100% renewable sources and energy efficiency. NOW is the time to create our fossil and nuclear-free future.

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/
Join us for the next count from. February, 13 -16, 2015! precount. Bird Watchers of all ages count birds to create a real-time snapshot of where birds are. Find out how to get started » · How to Participate. How to Participate bird photo. Learn how to take part in this global event.

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.
