Last summer the Gulf of Finland was infested with cyanobacteria also known as blue-green algae as a result of heavy phosphorous concentrations that came from the deep sea basin of the Baltic Sea in autumn 2016. The Baltic has extensive oxygen-poor areas where phosphorous is being released. #enviromentaldisaster#waterpollution
This morning’s yoga mat....✨🙏✨
Praying, meditating, and entering into my Inner Temple as Hurricane Florence began her march towards my mother and brother who stayed behind. 🌀
The Divine Feminine takes many shapes and shows Herself in many ways. Right now, it seems that she is cleansing, releasing, and asking for the Divine Masculine to rise so that balance can be restored to her Earthly body. She is also showing us how everything is connected and that All is One. The ocean has surged into rivers more than 80 miles away and raised them more than 10 feet. Rainwater and wind are taking down trees and people are fleeing their homes. Environmental disasters are occurring as the ponds of feces created by the N.C. pig farmers are flooding and running off into our rivers, streams, and eventually back into the ocean, destroying and killing food and water supplies. I pray we pay attention and heed Her call.
In the meantime, I will keep entering my Temple, sitting and loving the Mother, and finding and praying for Peace as often as I can. Stay safe everyone and please send prayers to all involved, including Her. Om shanti shanti shanti ✨🙏✨
Once upon a time in the Caloosahatchee. I took this pic at my campsite at the W.P.Franklin locks. Today more toxic water is being released... I pray the manatee have moved somewhere safe... I can't stand to see another one dead. Yet, another has washed ashore on Sanibel
Aral Sea. Sea? Yes, there used to be only water in this landscape. Aral Sea was formerly one of the four largest lakes in the world. Unfortunately it has been shrinking since the 1960s after the rivers that fed it were diverted by irrigation projects. By creating a dam in 2005, the water level had risen again and it still is. That's good news for the environment, the fishermen, economy and employment. But for now it's still really strange to see this abandoned and desolated landscape.
It's been difficult to post these past days we're living through an environmental disaster. I've been spending my time listening and researching and trying to find strategies to move us forward out of the death of our beautiful sea life. SoFlo is the canary in the mine people. Help us. Find out what you can do in your daily lives to stop this horrible loss of life and clean water. #enviromentaldisaster#weareallinthistogether#helpusplease
Very old mine dump in Booysens Joburg. This pit is from the informal/illegal miners we call Zama Zamas that operate all over the gold fields of the Witwatersrand. A deadly occupation these men fight vicious territorial wars and face a highly toxic and dangerous working environment. We run into them on occasion and so far have had no trouble with them. #minedump#tailingsdam#mining#enviromentaldisaster#goldmining
An oil spill of approximately 550 barrels (23,100 gallons) has killed more than 2,400 fish, birds and reptiles near the city of Barrancabermeja, Colombia, RCN Radioreported.
Oil started spilling from the Lizama 158 oil field in early March and spread down 15 miles of the Lizama river and 12.4 miles of the Sogamoso river.
According to local media, it took Colombia's state oil company Ecopetrol three weeks to respond to the environmental disaster.
Colombia Reports noted that the crude started escaping the oil field on March 3 but it was only this past Saturday that Ecopetrol vowed to send heavy equipment that could stop the spill.
The company said Tuesday that the spill is fully controlled and workers are carrying out environmental monitoring of the rivers. The cause of the spill is currently unclear but an investigation is underway.
In addition to the 2,400 animals who died, Claudia Gonzalez, director of the National Agency of Environmental Licenses (ANLA) told RCN Radio that 1,300 animals were rescued alive.
About 1,080 trees of different species were also affected by the spill and about 70 people had to be relocated from the area, with some people reporting healthproblems.
"I have practically nothing to eat, we have lived through the river all our lives and the contamination has already reached the Magdalena," area residet Elkin Cala told the Colombian television station Noticias Uno
Barrancabermeja, located off the shore of the Magdalena river in the department of Santander, is home to the largest oil refinery in the South American country.
Santander Governor Didier Tavera Amado has criticized the oil company for being incompetent and incapable of responding to the environmental emergency.
#northamburrows is truly an amazing place to enjoy, with the recent storms the sand headland has gone and the sea has massively (15 metres) eroded into the golf course ! I understand Mother Nature will have her way but many people will remember what was dumped in the old land fill site in the past! How long will it be with the sodden ground that all sorts of nasties will be seeping into the estuary polluting the waters even more . @torridgedc need to act now before it’s too late #sas#enviromentaldisaster
