CALL ME  ISHMAEKILL
Humorous (and sad-but-true) animation about the revival of whale hunting, the impact of Navy sonar, and other deadly indignities heaped upon our wondrous whales. A hearty "Ahoy!" and "Arrrrggh" to ya, matey.   Content no longer available from host site (Mark.Fiore.com)

THE TRUTH ABOUT CATS, DOGS, AND LAWN CHEMICALS
In these difficult economic times, there's one easy cost-cutting measure you can take: Forget about applying chemical fertilizers and pesticides to your lawn this year. Reason enough should be that lawn chemicals pose a danger to pets, kids, and the local creek. But the truth is that they're not even good for your lawn because they degrade soil quality. For the not-safe-for-pets angle, you can watch the free 17-minute video The Truth About Cats, Dogs, and Lawn Chemicals.

As Ocean Acidity Rises, Will Phytoplankton Health Fall? — Microscopic ocean creatures called phytoplankton produce an astonishing 60 percent of the Earth’s oxygen and they occupy the crucial bottom rung of our world’s ocean food chain. The survival of most life on this planet depends on healthy phytoplankton. Researcher William Cochlan discusses a new study that is attempting to predict the likely impact to phytoplankton from rising CO2 and ocean acidity levels. Though results are still unfolding, it appears that some phytoplankton turn more toxic in a higher acidity environment and, in turn, harm the shellfish and other marine animals that feed on them.

Tree Swallows Have Winter of Discontent — Many species of birds that feed on airborne insects are in decline. Not only are their numbers diminishing, but the size of the remaining birds, particularly breeding females, has also been shrinking. Dr. Sebastien Rioux Paquette has been studying one of these birds, the tree swallow, in its summer habitat in Quebec. He's found that summer forage doesn't seem to be a problem for the swallows; the issue seems to be declines in insect prey in their wintering ground in the US and Mexico. Pesticides and shrinking habitat for insects due to agricultural intensification are depleting the swallows' winter food, and the birds are suffering as a result.
