On April 22, 1970, 20 million people across the world celebrated the very first Earth Day. Their message was sparked by the power of the anti-war protests of the 1960s, and events that brought the issue of the environment and its vulnerability to ecology to the forefront.

The good news is that Spring Equinox started on March 20th, but in NYC it's now Spring because Cherry 🌸 Blossoms have started blooming. The bad news is that Japan is experiencing the earliest cherry blossom bloom in 1,200 years. Experts point to global climate change as the cause. Gorgeous, but depressing!

An alarming global analysis of subsidence, relative sea-level change, and coastal flood exposure report has been released.

Climate-induced sea-level rise and vertical land movements, including natural and human-induced subsidence in sedimentary coastal lowlands, combine to change relative sea levels around the world’s coasts. Although this affects local rates of sea-level rise, assessments of the coastal impacts of subsidence are lacking on a global scale.

Ecology is a branch of biology concerning the spatial and temporal patterns of the distribution and abundance of organisms, including the causes and consequences. Topics of interest include the biodiversity, distribution, biomass, and populations of organisms, as well as cooperation and competition within and between species.

What makes Love, Liberty, and Labor extremely important to all of us? These three make all the difference in the world for everyone.

As we look forward, and looking back, comparing to life in 1921, the similarities are amazing. A century ago, earth was pounded by a global pandemic; people around the world were starving, and there was a new #USA president being sworn in.
