Our health, homes, food and safety are all likely to be threatened by climate change according to a major UN report. It says the impacts of global warming are likely to be "severe, pervasive and irreversible". How well can we adapt to the changes? And who should foot the bill as we try to manage the risks?  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-26810559

The Elephants Knew

Some will say there is no God,
try and tell that to the elephants.....

THE ELEPHANTS' JOURNEY TO PAY RESPECT,
BUT HOW DID THEY KNOW?

Lawrence Anthony, a legend in South Africa and author of 3 books including the bestseller, The Elephant Whisperer.
He bravely rescued wildlife and rehabilitated elephants all over the globe from human atrocities, including the courageousrescue of Baghdad Zoo animals during US invasion in 2003.

On March 7, 2012 Lawrence Anthony died. He is remembered and missed by his wife, 2 sons, 2 grandsons, and numerous elephants. Two days after his passing, the wild elephants showed up at his home led by two large matriarchs. Separate wild herds arrived in droves to say goodbye to their beloved 'man-friend'. A total of 31 elephants had patiently walked over 12 milesto get to his South African House.

Witnessing this spectacle, humans were obviously in awe not only because of the supreme intelligence and precise timing that these elephants sensed about Lawrence's passing, but also because of the profound memory and emotion the beloved animals evoked in such an organized way: Walking slowly, for days, making their way in a solemn one-by-one queue from their habitat to his house. Lawrence 's wife, Francoise, was especially touched, knowing that the elephants had not been to his house prior to that day for well over 3 years! But yet they knew where they were going. The elephants obviously wanted to pay their deep respects, honoring their friend who'd saved their lives - so much respect that they stayed for 2 days 2 nights without eating anything. Then one morning, they left, making their long journey back home.

SOMETHING IN THE UNIVERSE IS GREATER
AND DEEPER THAN HUMAN INTELLIGENCE.

IN GOD WE TRUST

Elephants can have empathy, and affection for those outside their kind. What does this have to do with mythical creatures?

Incredible segment of "Inside the Animal Mind" with super-clever Crow solving a complex challenge. =^.^= +BBC America 
My crow-like mind ends up asking: "Why do British blokes speak so oddly?"  Do crows have accents?  <3 +Corvida Raven
