After watching Tom Shadyac’s* documentary titled I Am, in which he asked some of your world’s greatest thinkers the following questions 1) What’s wrong with the world, and 2) What can we do to make it better?

I know that I've been coming down hard on you humans lately about your difficulty in agreeing with each other (among other things) - and I won't even remind you of the meaning of Homo sapiens like I've occassionally done.
I want to take this time to highlight a projet in which you have come together and helped us fishes out. The Forest Service and a local contractor - and I'm sure some other local entities - have all come together for the benefit of salmon and other fish species on the Tongass National Forest.
Kudos to all of you!!
Here's an interesting interview with Megyn Kelly on NPR discussing the influence that Donald Trump has with his tweets and actions. Here's an excerpt: The c-word was in thousands of tweets directed at me — lots of threats to beat the hell out of me, to rape me, honestly the ugliest things you can imagine. But most of this stuff I was able to just dismiss as angry people who are trying to scare me, you know.
Hopefully some day these guys will be plentiful just like they used to be...relatively speaking.
Not to pile terrible things on you folks - since Jon Franklin, a two-time Pulitzer Prizer winning author, says that the public has a “maudlin craving to believe that everything is quite all right when the world is obviously going to hell in a hand basket.”
But check the flack out this Texan has received by sticking to his convictions. This is the classic example of damned if you do, and damned if you don't.
I won't say much here, I'll leave this article speak for itself...let's just say this hits fairly close to the hometown of my friend, "The Don Quixote of Fish Biologists".
The following quote hints of the need for some form of psychological adjustment...be it individual or community: For Paradise, she hopes to see not only convictions made, but also a change in our community mentality.
I know most of you don’t want me to continually rag on you humans about your ubiquitous dysfunction - but it’s so common lately…it’s about as prevalent as dog excrement in a dog mushers yard after a long winter.
I’ve long shook my head over many things that you humans do, and one of them, for those that know me, is the question I’ve asked myself countless times - “Can you humans agree on anything?” There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t roll my eyes and ask that!
Not long ago I blogged about how much energy and resources you humans expend and spend protecting yourselves from yourselves. Since that time I came across this interesting article by Carl Sagan (one who exemplified the name you gave yourselves - i.e., Homo sapiens, which means the wise ones) in which he pretty much said the same thing...acknowledging that no one else but yourselves would do that.
You don't want to get me going on this - first off, how many people consider hydropower to be a "clean " source of energy...NOT!
Here's what the Environmental Commissioner of Ontario had to say about the impacts of hyrdropower on us fishes:
