    #1 Yes it does need to be shared and shared it will be! This is horrifying. If they reported about this on the news I don't recall hearing about it. Sadly, they spend so much time reporting on US Politics, we don't hear about all the major news going on around the world. What a major disaster, man made disaster, that is. Was this caused by pipeline or fracking? They are saying fracking in the US is causing a major increase in earthquakes. The Dakota pipeline deal is going to happen even though it was stopped because of the people living on Indian Reservations in the area protested this pipeline under Obama. Chemicals leaking into water supplies, through the soil etc... will cause many illnesses and early deaths. This story is one that people should take heed from. I never heard of a mud volcano, but wow, it's both frightening and sad. Thanks for sharing this important story @Paul Walters

    Hi @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher - these aren't my photos - I will post some soon, they are taken with a small digital camera - I was using film up until I couldn't get it anymore.... I am saving up for a 'back' that will fit on my long lens. I get most of my images that I use in my posts from Free Images.com. As far as A/C is concerned I used to live in Singapore with my parents when I was a teenager. We lived in an old colonial house with deep eaves, very high ceilings and a really v. good cross flow of air. The Lounge was open on three sides. The living rooms were also quite large. However it was a different story at night - the bedrooms were small and only had one window, so we couldn't just rely on a ceiling fan. The trouble is that most houses today are not designed that way and get uncomfortably hot in the summer months. All I can suggest is that you get good insulation in your roof....

    Great info @Claire 🐝 Cardwell! I am addicted to my A/C during the hot/humid months. What do people do in order to keep their homes cool and free from a lot of humidity, there must be solutions for that too. Using Central Air really costs a lot of money when the electric bill arrives. The photos I see you post, are some of them yours? I love photography, would love to see more of yours!

    #5 it does, it is essential for the Developed countries and critical for developing countries.

    I had submitted a paper here, lobbying didn't get it started. Idea was simple

    Public toilets which produce power and compost ...But the special part was cashless incentives for waste collectors and green tops for air pollution, plus they could sell it to the grid or electric vehicles.

    Functional, possible, sustainable with low maintenance on far off areas in tourist places, villages, highways etc.

    Does it appeal to you. If yes we can discuss.

    Thanks @Devesh Bhatt - v. pleased you enjoyed my article. It makes commercial sense to build green and in many cases now it costs the same (or can be even cheaper) to construct an environmentally friendly building. There are many health benefits for the people living & working in green buildings - check out http://climatenewsnetwork.net/people-and-planet-benefit-from-green-buildings/

    Thanks @David B. Grinberg! Glad you enjoyed the article. There have been studies recently that demonstrate that there are many benefits to a green building, apart from the energy saving aspect,

    "Studies into 69,000 buildings βˆ’ homes, offices and factories βˆ’ in 150 countries show that there are fewer illnesses among residents and workers, who report they are more comfortable and happier. Employers also find they are more productive. Companies that opt for β€œgreen” buildings gain because workers stay longer in their jobs and have fewer absences, while recruitment is easier because new employees are attracted to environmentally-friendly buildings."

    Thanks for this excellent advice, Claire. I've noticed here in the USA that many building are "going green" by having grass and plants covering the roof. I think that's catching on. Hopefully, mega corporations will think long and hard about the important issues you identified. We all need to remember that you can't fool Mother Nature!

    I made a comment on @Irene Hackett's share on LI about a google engineer using maps to save redwoods near Santa Cruz and had a Geophysicist look at my profile.

    We must be concerned.

    But since we have the in-fighting dynamic - we could agree to focus on the things that are clearly, undeniably due to the actions of humans, like monoculture industrial agriculture and deforestation both of which lead to desertification which has unbalanced the carbon and moisture cycles of the planet.

    Time to start doing things one by one consistently and we will get to a tipping point where we stop the destruction and begin to reverse it.
