Mother Nature seems to have thought of everything, her tiny krill are shown in a new research paper to be actively engaged in making sure their ocean pastures have not only enough but the ideal form of iron to be nourished and flourish, feeding the krill and all of ocean life. https://goo.gl/8KFrCa
The miracle of life reveals there are no 'free loaders' in Nature. Krill that graze on ocean pastures evolved the skill to manage iron for ocean pastures

Tuna managers in the Indian Ocean are calling for dramatic reductions in catch as prized Yellowfin tuna are facing starvation on once thriving ocean pastures that are becoming ever bluer ocean deserts. We must restore our ocean pastures. http://russgeorge.net/2016/05/11/seychelles-yellowfin-tuna-facing-ocean-pasture-peril/

A new paper came out in the journal Nature, it is getting lots of ink today in the world media. Of course the authors neglected to speak of the problems of 'global greening' or to the solution to the great damage wrought upon our oceans by this CO2 enhanced global greening. I have not missed that point in my report on the news and offering the solution.

As the Earth greens new ground cover starves the oceans to death as a decades long drought of vital mineral rich 'dust-fall' turns oceans into blue deserts

If fish have a heaven this might be the place. Your heart will be bolstered by this video which offers some taste of nirvana... krill beneath the ice... stunning images of a world that could be on the ice moons of Jupiter but is much closer.. Sadly all is not well in the beautiful world of krill http://russgeorge.net/2016/02/09/mystery-of-krill-beneath-the-ice-revealed/
You'll not be disappointed in the time to experience the cathedral of light where krill live beneath Antarctic sea ice, do it now before the krill are gone.

"A LETTER WHICH WILL BE RECORDED IN THE HISTORY"

Message of ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, Leader of The Islamic Republic of Iran To the Youth in Europe and North America

In the name of God, the Beneficent the Merciful

To the Youth in Europe and North America,

The recent events in France and similar ones in some other Western countries have convinced me to directly talk to you about them. I am addressing you, [the youth], not because I overlook your parents, rather it is because the future of your nations and countries will be in your hands; and also I find that the sense of quest for truth is more vigorous and attentive in your hearts.

I don’t address your politicians and statesmen either in this writing because I believe that they have consciously separated the route of politics from the path of righteousness and truth.

I would like to talk to you about Islam, particularly the image that is presented to you as Islam. Many attempts have been made over the past two decades, almost since the disintegration of the Soviet Union, to place this great religion in the seat of a horrifying enemy. The provocation of a feeling of horror and hatred and its utilization has unfortunately a long record in the political history of the West.

Here, I don’t want to deal with the different phobias with which the Western nations have thus far been indoctrinated. A cursory review of recent critical studies of history would bring home to you the fact that the Western governments’ insincere and hypocritical treatment of other nations and cultures has been censured in new historiographies.

The histories of the United States and Europe are ashamed of slavery, embarrassed by the colonial period and chagrined at the oppression of people of color and non-Christians. Your researchers and historians are deeply ashamed of the bloodsheds wrought in the name of religion between the Catholics and Protestants or in the name of nationality and ethnicity during the First and Second World Wars. This approach is admirable.

By mentioning a fraction of this long list, I don’t want to reproach history; rather I would like you to ask your intellectuals as to why the public conscience in the West awakens and comes to its senses after a delay of several decades or centuries. Why should the revision of collective conscience apply to the distant past and not to the current problems? Why is it that attempts are made to prevent public awareness regarding an important issue such as the treatment of Islamic culture and thought?

You know well that humiliation and spreading hatred and illusionary fear of the “other” have been the common base of all those oppressive profiteers. Now, I would like you to ask yourself why the old policy of spreading “phobia” and hatred has targeted Islam and Muslims with an unprecedented intensity. Why does the power structure in the world want Islamic thought to be marginalized and remain latent? What concepts and values in Islam disturb the programs of the super powers and what interests are safeguarded in the shadow of distorting the image of Islam? Hence, my first request is: Study and research the incentives behind this widespread tarnishing of the image of Islam.

My second request is that in reaction to the flood of prejudgments and disinformation campaigns, try to gain a direct and firsthand knowledge of this religion. The right logic requires that you understand the nature and essence of what they are frightening you about and want you to keep away from.

I don’t insist that you accept my reading or any other reading of Islam. What I want to say is: Don’t allow this dynamic and effective reality in today’s world to be introduced to you through resentments and prejudices. Don’t allow them to hypocritically introduce their own recruited terrorists as representatives of Islam.

Receive knowledge of Islam from its primary and original sources. Gain information about Islam through the Qur’an and the life of its great Prophet. I would like to ask you whether you have directly read the Qur’an of the Muslims. Have you studied the teachings of the Prophet of Islam and his humane, ethical doctrines? Have you ever received the message of Islam from any sources other than the media?

Have you ever asked yourself how and on the basis of which values has Islam established the greatest scientific and intellectual civilization of the world and raised the most distinguished scientists and intellectuals throughout several centuries?

I would like you not to allow the derogatory and offensive image-buildings to create an emotional gulf between you and the reality, taking away the possibility of an impartial judgment from you. Today, the communication media have removed the geographical borders. Hence, don’t allow them to besiege you within fabricated and mental borders.

Although no one can individually fill the created gaps, each one of you can construct a bridge of thought and fairness over the gaps to illuminate yourself and your surrounding environment. While this preplanned challenge between Islam and you, the youth, is undesirable, it can raise new questions in your curious and inquiring minds. Attempts to find answers to these questions will provide you with an appropriate opportunity to discover new truths.

Therefore, don’t miss the opportunity to gain proper, correct and unbiased understanding of Islam so that hopefully, due to your sense of responsibility toward the truth, future generations would write the history of this current interaction between Islam and the West with a clearer conscience and lesser resentment.

Seyyed Ali Khamenei

Whales are starving in the Pacific Northwest as the worst salmon runs in history prove the collapse of ocean pastures into clear blue deserts. We can and must restore ocean pastures to bring back the fish, whales, seabirds, sea-lions and more.

I have some bleak news to share about our Southern Resident killer whales, which normally frequent Puget Sound at this time of year. J-14, a 42-year-old female named Samish, has gone missing and is presumed dead, while J-28, a 23-year-old orca mom named Polaris, may living out her final days.

New report in PNAS Journal - Ocean carbon sinking by plankton is confirmed as the most powerful force of Nature controlling global CO2, ocean warming via plankton cooling, and climate change! Tragically ocean plankton collapse is upon us, but is reversible if we act to restore oceans to health and abundance. http://russgeorge.net/2016/07/25/huge-ocean-carbon-biologic-capture-and-storage/

Ocean plankton is incredibly resilient and is shown in a new report in the Journal Nature. It is able to re-seed itself around the world in as little as 10 years. Tragically though the havoc wrought by our CO2 that is turning oceans into ever bluer deserts is overwhelming the phytoplankton, you know the plant-life responsible for making 85% of the oxygen you breathe - the true lungs of the earth. In each 5 year span an amount of ocean photosynthesis is lost equal to the loss of an entire Amazon Rainforest! We have the means to help. http://russgeorge.net/2016/05/06/lungs-of-earth-shrivel-under-our-co2-abuse-nd-neglect/
Ocean phytoplankton are the real lungs of earth, as they disappear our oceans are becoming ever bluer deserts no longer able to supply our oxygen

CO2 is already creating havoc in paradise. Fiji's ocean pastures have collapsed and the fish are gone. Those pastures can be sustainably restored by helping nature repurpose millions of tons of death dealing CO2 into life and fish. Just one of the countless Fijian tuna boats now in mothballs because the fish are gone can sustainably restore and revive Fiji's ocean pastures and bring back their fish - Bring back Fiji's Fish http://russgeorge.net/2016/04/16/fijian-ocean-pastures-troubled-waters/
Fiji's fish are in a terrible collapse as once vital ocean pastures become blue deserts while overfishing catches the last of the dwindling fish
