Extraordinary scenes in Seanad on deeply flawed Horticultural #Peat Bill. On top of exemption from #planning , the bill stayed enforcement action & disregarded unlawful extraction & more putting us clearly in breach of EU law - key parts of their #PeatBill NOT highlighted🤔& 👇
- #Peatbill didn't even bother to provide properly for allocation of all the assessments required by EU law. Talk about giving #falsehope to those impacted by the successive failures! U simply can't stick ur head in the bog when it comes to EU law - at least u shouldn't but 😱👇
What @reginadoherty described as "a foolish legal action" tinyurl.com/2p8k59xr added insult to injury to our National Courts who rightly upheld the challenge . The #PeatBill added further insult and disregard to the EU Court of Justice's rulings.

This pair of #hummingbirds are throwing down hard. (A Nikon z50 truly amateur hour #Nature #Photography Thread)
I'm not sure who instigates more, this one is often the most egregiously aggressive and I have seen it knock the other one to the dirt. (#nature #photography #hummingbirds)
This one tried and found out when it was literally picking itself up out of the dirt. That's what made em grab my camera because that shit had to hurt. (#nature #photography #hummingbirds)

1. The world's oldest known wild bird is a Laysan Albatros.

She is called Wisdom, because of her age and surviving many current threads like fish-lines, climate change, and plastic pollution. 

This is her. Isn’t she beautiful?

3. Wisdom was probably born around 1951. Five years later, in 1956, the young albatross, got a red ankle band with the number Z333.

By now, that albatross, Wisdom, has become famous as the world's oldest known wild bird.

📍 Gingee fort, Villupuram
Explore the fort's beautiful interiors. Tanks, granaries, halls, marriage halls, and several more unusual locations can be found here. One can always find some time to pay them a visit.
📍 Perumal peak, Kodaikanal
The walk begins at the foot of the peak, at Perumal Malai Village, about 11 kilometres from Kodaikanal. It's around 7 km and takes about 4 hours one way. The majority of the hike is somewhat strenuous, with a few steep spots.

Le #cellule #Car-T “peptide-centriche” contro i #tumori solidi: in questo caso ha come #target i #frammenti proteici nelle cellule di #neuroblastoma. Studio di #Nature riassunto in questo thread un po' lungo ma spero interessante. 1/13
Le basi/1. Le terapie CAR-T si basano sull’ingegnerizzazione delle #cellule T (o #linfociti T) del sistema #immunitario del #paziente, che vengono “potenziate” per combattere il #tumore. 2/13
Le basi/2. Per farlo gli scienziati usano un #vettore #virale inattivato contenente un #gene in grado di far esprimere sulla superficie delle cellule T un #recettore chimerico (il recettore dell’antigene chimerico, #CAR, a cui la terapia deve il suo nome). 3/13

SARS-CoV-2 PL-Pro (Nsp3) Inhibitors.
#nature #plantbased
Salvia miltiorrhiza.

PLpro has an implication in viral invasion by shutting down the viral-induced host innate immune response. Dihydrotanshinone I appears to be the strongest inhibitor amongst the tanshinone ..1/n
derivatives. It is a natural compound isolated from lipophilic fraction of Salvia miltiorrhiza, which has a long history in traditional Chinese medicine. Several derivatives of tanshinones were previously reported to be inhibitors for SARS-CoV-1 PLpro and to a lesser extent ..2/n
in 3CLpro. Dihydrotanshinone I is the best inhibitor of SARS-CoV-2 PLpro and did not inhibit 3CLpro. 3/n

Today #nature takes centre stage at #COP26 although frankly it should be at the centre of our thinking every day. I couldn’t march but I can speak up and it’s been an utter privilege to do so for the past three years via a series of extraordinary @26characters projects...
The most recent was, of course, #26Pledges, part of the wider three-part #26Habitats project with @WildlifeTrusts @26characters and the remarkable art of @lydiathornley, in which I was paired with deciduous woodland... 26project.org.uk/26habitats/dec… #nature #COP26

The total amount of suffering per year in the natural world is beyond all decent contemplation. During the minute that it takes me to compose this sentence, thousands of animals are being eaten alive, many others are running for their lives, whimpering with fear,
others are slowly being devoured from within by rasping parasites, thousands of all kinds are dying of starvation, thirst, and disease. It must be so. If there ever is a time of plenty,
this very fact will automatically lead to an increase in the population until the natural state of starvation and misery is restored. In a universe of electrons and selfish genes, blind physical forces and genetic replication, some people are going to get hurt,

1. For all readers who don't warm to the idea of future palm-fringed beaches in the Arctic, I wrote an explainer about COP26, climate change, and why we need to do more.

2/12. Current policies set us on track to about 2.7°C or 2.9°C of warming by the end of this century, a disastrous cause to a world where you don't want your children to live.

3/12. This graph from Our World in Data shows the global average temperature relative to the average of the period between 1961 and 1990.

These changes are almost all caused by human behavior, especially the burning of fossil fuels and land (ab)use.

1. Starting COP26 on Halloween, a festival for the dead, doesn't give much hope.

2. Traditions can alienate you if you don't feel part of it. So in my efforts to blend in with the Canadians, I searched the internet to explain #Halloween and found that we have to go back into history as I so often do in The Planet newsletter.

3. There was not much of #Halloween celebration in colonial New England, where rigid Protestant beliefs prevented frivolously celebrating, especially of traditions with some doubtful pre-Christian fingerprints all over it.

So this aged seal on a Norfolk beach was humanely put down, but not before police were called because crowds of people had been throwing stones at it and posing for selfies with it in this utter hellscape of a country we’ve become. I am so f**ing angry.
Normally my replies are a bit of a right wing bin fire, but very heartened by the comments on this sad tale.
And, on a happier note, here is a reminder of the beauty of seals and all wildlife when we treat animals with respect. 🦭#nature #wildlife #oceans

Here’s the core of it. The question no one will face when they are prattling on about protests. “Do you know what a 2 degree temperature rise looks like and what it means for your children?”

He has no idea, and isn’t interested. The problem in a nutshell.
It’s such a problem this. People really have no idea of what is coming with the #ClimateCrisis, and sort of numbly switch off to it. When it really explodes (it’s already started), they will all say there wasn’t enough warning and more should have been done. 🤦🏻‍♂️ #ClimateEmergency
Someone just told me they've been waiting for climate change since they were 15 (which I assume was about 40 years ago) and nothing's changed in that time. I block all climate science deniers instantly, there is no time to waste on that shit.

2. That’s right, it’s our only home. That means we have to be extra careful, we don’t have a spare.

When it heats up, or loses it’s complex ecosystems, we will all be in trouble.

This is a mating dance, but she is not interested and he escapes with his life, because often females will eat their lover after sex.

After many light-years of travel through space, some friendly little green creatures decide to get out and stretch their legs on our planet.

What would they report home?

Hidden in the fast, cold, and dark universe, they discovered a blue planet that brims with an incredible diversity of life, aided by ideal living conditions.

Since the dawn of civilization, humanity has lost 83% of all wild mammals and half of all plants.

Of all the mammals on earth, 96% are livestock and humans, while only 4% are wild mammals.

Hello Twitter Friends,
Quick Poll: Did you go hiking or nature walks in the northeast or upper Midwest of the U.S. this summer? #nature #hiking #ph260720
If you answered yes, did you happen to meet my friend, Ticky? And did you know that ticks (specifically blacklegged ticks) are the main transmitters for Lyme Disease? #ticky #lymedisease #ph260720
Lyme Disease is caused primarily by the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi. Lyme disease can be very unpredictable in the symptoms it can cause. Typical symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, and a skin rash that can look like a bulls eye or “target” rash. #lymedisease #ph260720

⚠️Encore une fois, pas de généralisation à "la nature, c'est mieux", tout au plus, comme tout bon concepteur, inspirons-nous de tout ce qui existe, quelque soit la personne, la société, la nation ou le processus naturel l'ayant engendré.
