What a great photograph!

Peter at Bayou Renaissance Man - 12 hours ago
I came across this photograph on Gab. It shows a stream of molten lava landing on a black sand beach, presumably in Hawaii, where volcanic eruptions continue. Click the image for a larger view. I'd love to know whether that was taken by a human photographer, or a drone. I presume the latter, because any human getting that close to a stream of molten lava is asking for trouble! However it was taken, though, that's a fascinating image. Kudos to whoever took it. Peter

Art Milholland (Maryland) gave me this film to watch some time ago. I watched it and was blown away. It's a brilliant film and a courageous one at that. Come to find out animal agriculture is the biggest polluter on our Mother Earth. Even more than fossil fuel use. The filmmaker goes around and tries to get major environmental groups to acknowledge this point but they consistently refuse. Why? In the end how we eat has more to do with 'saving the Earth' than anything else. We all have the power to change. Thanks Art for the education and your persistence. Bruce
