|Clip-a-quote on The Earth
And the earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit, with seed in them, after their kind; and God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:12
Blessed of the Lord be his land, ... with the choice things of the earth and its fullness... Deut 33:16
A generation goes and a generation comes, but the earth remains forever. Eccl 1:4
Four things are small on the earth, but they are exceedingly wise: the antts are not strong folk, but they prepare their food in the summer; the badgers are not mighty folk, yet they make their houses in the rocks; the locusts have no king, yet all of them go out in ranks; the lizard you may grasp with the hands, yet it is in kings palaces. Prov 30: 24-28
|Poem to Ponder On
(by Papemelroti Planet Patrol Poets)
Malawak na kapaligiran
Asul na karagatan
Salamat! salamat sa biyaya
Basura! Itapon ng tama
Magtanim! magtanim ng puno
Balance of nature means that nature when left to its own, will take care of itself, but when humankind starts polluting air & water, for ex., the balance is thrown off & some creatures begin to die while others become too plentiful.
Whales have been washed ashore with up to 50 plastic bags inside their guts, plastiic bags should never be left on the beach.
Pollution is nothing but the resources we are not harvesting. We allow them to disperse because we've been ignorant of their value. -Buckminster Fuller

The Aquarium-in-a-Jar: a good way to learn the relationship of animals to their environment! As long as you don't overfeed the fish, you won't have to clean the tank.
What to Do:
Add 'aged' water from pitcher as needed. Never fill jar until the top - the level should be around an inch from the jar's neck!
