How to save your fish during a black out in a temperate climate

Well I hate to be annoying and tell you what you already know, but it is much easier to be prepared ahead of time. If you didn’t think of it, hopefully these tips will help.

Stop feeding

The first rule with fish. If you have a problem of any kind, stop feeding your fish until the problem is resolved. This may seem cruel but its not. Fish are cold blooded and do not need to eat everyday. They can go without food for even a month.

Humans are warm blooded and most of the…

Planetary Distress Signal: Many Danger Signs Flashing Red

A Different Way of Looking at the Evidence—and Some of the Danger Signs

We are at a critical point in the evolution of life on Planet Earth. This writer sees more than enough evidence that many danger signs are “flashing red”, and thus more than enough evidence to support the need for a Planetary Distress Signal.

However…any number of samples of public discourse from the most popular mass media platforms would easily demonstrate that a significant majority of people on the…
