По правде говоря, некоторые из них, откровенно душераздирающие. Вас предупредили. Составленные Bored Panda , эта серия иллюстраций была направлена на то, чтобы заставить нас думать по-другому о том, как люди обращаются с животными, меняя нас местами с ними, создавая ужасающий параллельный мир, где люди заперты в клетках, подвержены пыткам и убиты.
Geoengineering has been back in the news recently after the US National Research Council endorsed a proposal to envelop the planet in a layer of sulphate aerosols to reduce solar radiation and cool the atmosphere.
The proposal has been widely criticised for possible unintended consequences, such as ozone depletion, ocean acidification and reduced rainfall in the tropics. Perhaps even more troubling, geoengineering is a technological fix that leaves the economic and industrial system causing climate change untouched.
Americans have been programmed to fight amongst themselves along partisan political lines, always pointing the finger at the other side of the phony left-right paradigm. Divide and conquer is the broad tactic being used to keep people from recognizing, focusing on, and targeting the truly diabolical agents in our world who hold real power over all of us at once.
We are not ruled by Republicans or Democrats, but rather by the not-so-hidden hands of institutions which have consolidated a tremendous amount of power. Our world is deeply colored by these cartels, and they impact every area of our lives, constantly maneuvering to make more and more dependent on them for our needs.
For some time now, we’ve been hearing about the important role women have in curbing environmental destruction.

What we need is a more feminine approach that sees value in preserving and caring for our natural world.
