This was an aerial capture from an unmanned aircraft viewing Hunga Ha'apai Island in Hunga Tonga Island in the left background.

Water vapor lingers in the air, which contributes to its ability to retain heat. It normally takes around 2-3 years for sulfate aerosols from volcanoes to fall out of the stratosphere. But the water from the Jan. 15 eruption could take 5-10 years to fully dissipate.

President Biden is reportedly delivering an ultimatum on climate change: If Congress does not act to combat a fast-warming planet, then then he will tap its own powers to respond to the crisis.

This stops U.S. exports of crude oil and also halts offshore drilling. President Biden can then redirect military funding to the construction of renewable energy projects.

While most human beings breathe in polluted air, it is taking away a couple of years from our global collective life expectancy.

Air pollution affects every organ in our body. The contamination of the indoor or outdoor environment by any chemical, physical or biological agent modifies the natural characteristics of the atmosphere. Household combustion devices, motor vehicles, industrial facilities, and forest fires are common sources of air pollution.

World Bee Day is celebrated every year on May 20 because on this day Anton Janša, the pioneer of beekeeping, was born in 1734.

The purpose of international day is to acknowledge the role of bees as pollinators for the global ecosystem. Consistently on this day, the public should be focused on the significance of saving honey bees. 

To learn about the importance of World Bee Day I decided to be with my well-behaved neighbors on City Island, New York.
