Personal 2019 Earth Day Story By The Don Quixote of Fish Biologists

I wish that for Earth Day, I could pen an uplifting story that shines a spotlight on all that is good with the environment…I really do.  But I’ve learned there comes a time when we must face reality. 

Our planet is wheezing from air pollution; it’s choking on plastics; our climate altering CO2 emissions are only increasing; amphibians and insects are dropping like flies (pun intended), wildfires and floods are now common much of the year.  On a world-wide scale, biological diversity is rapidly declining.

Gibberish Quote Of The Day: PA Legislator - I Like My Vegetables We Need More CO2 (GQD #6 Feb 24, 2019)

Seems I’m sticking to environmentally-minded quotes of the day; which was the original intent of this series.  Keep in mind I’m a fish, some would say a cynical one, but I see myself as a realist when it comes to describing your species with your quirky - and often troubling - behaviors.  And I have to keep reminding you what your scientific name – i.e., Homo sapiens – means.  It means “the wise or rational” ones!  Come on folks…get real; is that not the most egregious misnomer or what?     

Gibberish Quote Of The Day: The Great Barrier Reef Short-Term Impacts (GQD #5 Feb 22, 2019)

Here’s an environmental quote of the day, and it’s a disturbing one.  It has to do with the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.  Seems few places on this planet are safe from habitat degradation from you humans.  This is a good example, particularly after Australians pledged a substantial amount of money to protect the ecologically important reef!
