I found a cool study that calculated, for what is apparently the first time ever, the trophic level of humans. Then I ranted a bit.
I find gross things and dead things endlessly fascinating. As a result, I might become known as the “exploding dead things” girl. But who am I kidding? I won’t mind in the slightest. See my latest about exploding corpses—although this time, it’s about WHALES.
One time, I had a fire ant in my pants. It bit me three or four times, all of which were shockingly painful. I did not kill him.
This article is not about that fire ant.
2013 has had a lot of good volcano news stories.
This is the latest, video included:

Didn’t read the important IPCC report on climate change a few months ago? Still don’t want to read it because it’s very long and you don’t like reading?
Well, this video has summed up a lot of the conclusions from the report, all in a beautiful yet grim visualization.
Nothing is uniquely good.
Sometimes I lose my mind a little bit and can’t be on the computer. The tail end of last week and this past weekend was one of those times. So here is the subsequent backdrop in stories I wrote.
And something I wrote yesterday that is totally unrelated:

Scientists have been recovering the fossils of long-dead species at the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles for 100 years today. Though I’ve never been there, I wrote this in honor of the bubbly pit of doom.
Academics from UC-Davis examined 15 variables, from the sociological to the ecological, in order to better understand the human/environmental nexus. Apparently, as we live longer, ecosystem health declines as the percentage of endangered and invasive species grows in a country.
