Thanks, Avaaz, for making an effort. Your work is so important!
Got a glimpse of another of our furry neighbors today. He didn’t give me much time, but I managed to get a picture which is just good enough to make it clear that it was neither a cat nor a dog, but a rather good-looking fox. I hope to see you again soon, my friend!

I shot this beauty with my Canon (Powershot SX20is) from my living-room window this morning.
This is a very good article about the warnings from scientists concerned with the climate change, and the surprising lack of reaction among religious leaders and the press. I think that the reason for the silence must be that the leaders/news editors either haven’t understood how serious the problem is, or they are just lacking the courage to deal with it. The whole thing is just so big, and the idea that we have to change our way of living to deal with it, is so frightening that most people prefer to pretend that there is no problem there. And for the same sad reasons a few skeptics get a lot more attention in the media than they deserve.

I enjoyed this list from the Post Growth Institute:
I’ve decided to use the list in such a way that I will find out more about the people who are mentioned there, as I am sure I can learn a lot from them and also be inspired by their thoughts.
