(1/21) On November 6, 1965, the U.S. agreed with Cuba to airlift Cubans to the United States.

In the next eight years, around 300,000 Cubans took advantage of this program and left for the country that had played a central role in its domestic politics for a long time. 🧡

(2/21) On that very same day, U.S. President Lyndon Johnson's science advisory committee sent him a report entitled Restoring the Quality of Our Environment.Β

I met him when I took this picture.

An older man, sitting on a bench, next to his parked bicycle. He warned to keep the sunlight out of my camera, and I explained that I used the willow tree on my right for that.

Soon he started talking about his life, and local history.
Born in 1944, the scars of the war were still fresh when he grew up.

His father had unwillingly been involved in the execution of ten men that had tried to escape to the liberated south of the Netherlands.

He had been forced to drive them to their execution place.
A armed soldier made sure he would do it, and more soldiers were in the back of the truck.

His father lived with the frustration that nobody did anything to liberate them, it would have been possible.

When he was eight, the dikes broke. Nearly 2000 people drowned in Zeeland.

2/6. We face two existential challenges. Unlike just five years ago, most people will now recognize climate change as one of those. But the other, the loss of nature and biodiversity, seems to get less attention. However, β€˜their’ extinction may quite well be β€˜our’ extinction.
🧡
3/6. You may have heard Einstein’s quote on the extinction of bees, that we have only four years left on earth if they go extinct. Like many of his quotes, it is very unlikely that he has ever said this.

I have heard scientists say that the one thing they fear more than
