Happy World Ocean Day!
Here are a few simple things you can do to save our ocean:

- Pick up litter, especially plastic everywhere you go, if it is never picked up, no matter how far from the sea, it will end up in the ocean... also, if it is something an animal can caught in, I recommend ripping it so nothing can get caught in it before throwing it away

- Use reusable bags, not plastic. These are terrible, they end blowing around everywhere and cannot be recycled in most places because they get caught up in the machines in MRFs (Materials Recovery Facility, this is where recyclables are sorted and sold so they can be changed into new products) animals can suffocate in these and are sometimes eaten

- Like everyone says, lights off at night around the beach so baby turtles are not confused

- Reduce use of plastic, plastic commonly thrown away ends up in the ocean and never decomposes, instead it breaks down into small pieces due to the exposure to the sun and it often consumed by filter feeders, like manta rays and whale sharks

- Keep pets on leashes at the beach and do not chase birds, migratory birds rely heavily on the organisms found on the beaches and there are bird species that are declining in population because of humans, indirectly and directly. Some of these birds make trips from very far distances and often stop on beaches. These birds loose a lot of wright and energy on these trips, they don't want to be chased while they try to regain strength so they can make the extremely important journey. If you were on a road trip, you don't want to stop somewhere to rest and be chased around and terrorized by something 20 times your size, right?

- Reduce the Carbon Footprint by using your car less, use alternate resources (solar panels for example), unplug and turn off home appliances when not in use, etc. The arctic ice is melting and animals in the poles, like polar bears are loosing habitat space and the warming waters are killing coral reefs due to coral bleaching

- Only eat sustainable sea food

- Reduce use of fertilizer and avoid companies that use fertilizer, rain water often washes fetilizer into estuaries (which lead to the ocean) and harm a very big amount of fish

- Participate in clean ups, not only beach clean ups! Believe it or not, these can be quite fun, especially if you bring friends and family along with you

- Support organizations that help protect our beautiful oceans

- Educate others! One person cannot save the oceans, we all must work together to save the most fragile and important ecosystem in the world! (Just so you know, the ocean creates 70% of our oxygen, so hurting the ocean does not only affect the ocean, it heavily affects us as well!)

Together we can keep our oceans beautiful.

If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found out that it has no meaning: just as, if there were no light in the universe and therefore no creatures with eyes, we should never know it was dark. Dark would be without meaning.

Here's a fascinating take on how to justify space exploration...
 
The Proper Way to Justify Spending Money on Space Exploration...

With so many problems here on earth requiring our attention, how is it possible to justify spending money to explore space? One of the best answers I've heard to this was found in a letter written over 40 years ago.

This question was posed to Dr. Ernst Stublinger, the associate director of Science at NASA in the early 1970s. It was asked by a Nun, who felt strongly that the money would better be spent helping starving children.

As part of Stublinger's reply, he told the following story about a Count from the 1500s:

The Count

About 400 years ago, there lived a count in a small town in Germany. He was one of the benign counts, and he gave a large part of his income to the poor in his town. This was much appreciated, because poverty was abundant during medieval times, and there were epidemics of the plague which ravaged the country frequently.

One day, the count met a strange man. He had a workbench and little laboratory in his house, and he labored hard during the daytime so that he could afford a few hours every evening to work in his laboratory. He ground small lenses from pieces of glass; he mounted the lenses in tubes, and he used these gadgets to look at very small objects.

The count was particularly fascinated by the tiny creatures that could be observed with the strong magnification, and which he had never seen before. He invited the man to move with his laboratory to the castle, to become a member of the count's household, and to devote henceforth all his time to the development and perfection of his optical gadgets as a special employee of the count.

The townspeople, however, became angry when they realized that the count was wasting his money, as they thought, on a stunt without purpose. "We are suffering from this plague," they said, "while he is paying that man for a useless hobby!" But the count remained firm. "I give you as much as I can afford," he said, "but I will also support this man and his work, because I know that someday something will come out of it!"

Indeed, something very good came out of this work, and also out of similar work done by others at other places: the microscope. It is well known that the microscope has contributed more than any other invention to the progress of medicine, and that the elimination of the plague and many other contagious diseases from most parts of the world is largely a result of studies which the microscope made possible.

The count, by retaining some of his spending money for research and discovery, contributed far more to the relief of human suffering than he could have contributed by giving all he could possibly spare to his plague-ridden community.

Full letter found here:

___________


With this in mind, how can anyone argue with spending money on space exploration given that less than 1% of the US Budget goes to NASA?
