#Repost @natgeo • • • • • • Video by Babak Tafreshi @babaktafreshi | The full moon rises above the historic Boston Light which was originally built in 1716, one of the earliest in the U.S. The moon's shape and color change as it rises, due to atmospheric refraction, causing distorted image and color shift on the horizon. The same happens to the sun. The images are made from four miles (six km ) away, using a long telephoto lens. I was far enough from the foreground that it appeared smaller than the moon, which adds to the brain perception of "super" moon appearance on the horizon.

#Repost @leonardodicaprio • • • • • • #Regram #RG @financialtimes : 🚨 Temperatures are rising, the glaciers of the Himalayas are melting — and here’s why this is particularly significant: because the area provides water for about 800m people across Asia. 🚨 A forthcoming study surveyed decades of satellite data and found that the glaciers have been losing the equivalent of 50cm of ice vertically each year since 2000, melting twice as fast as they were during the 1975 to 2000 period. Several factors contribute to melting in the Himalayas, including settled soot and changing precipitation factors. However, the new study suggests that temperature is the single biggest factor that drives the rate of melting, underscoring the impact of climate change on an area that is a critical source of water supply for India and China. 🔸 The research comes as global carbon dioxide emissions hit a record high last year, and as the earth’s average temperature has warmed about 1C compared with pre-industrial times. 🔸

#Repost @guardian • • • • • • Breakthrough alert: the world’s largest sovereign wealth fund, which manages $1tn (£786bn ) of Norway’s assets, has been given the go ahead for the largest fossil fuel divestment ever. The country's parliament voted plans into law for the fund to dump investments in eight coal companies and an estimated 150 oil producers. The fund will also have a legal mandate to invest directly in renewable energy projects. The legislation empowers it to invest up to $20bn, beginning with wind and solar projects in developed markets. The fund’s blow to fossil fuel companies comes as calls increase for investors to end their contribution to the climate crisis. In an open letter to the European Investment Bank, 80 civil society organisations and academics called on the central bank to end its fossil fuel financing, which topped €2.4bn (£2.1bn ) in 2018. #guardian

#Repost @everydayclimatechange • • • • • • This is brazilian based photographer Victor Moriyama @victormoriyama taking over the @everydayclimatechange account and this week I’ll share some pictures of my work about the deforestation in the Amazon Forest. A log of wood abandoned in the forest by illegal loggers is found inside the indigenous land of the Pater Suruí group in the state of Rondônia. In order to clear down trees in the forest, logging companies must carry out a management plan that provides for the planting of new species in a cyclical way. However, in Brazil, supervision of these activities is purposely low. As a consequence of this low control over the origin of the felled trees there is a growth of the illegal practice called "wood heating" that implies in the felling of trees outside the allowed reserve, and therefore illegal, and classification with free trade label for export. The Amazon Rainforest has been under threat for decades. In 2018, almost 1.6 million hectares of native forest were lost only in Brazil. Animal husbandry, mining and soybean planting were the commercial activities that contributed most to this loss. The Amazon rainforest is a reserve of about 80 billion tons of carbon - equivalent to almost a third of the world's stock and plays a key role in reducing climate change because it helps absorb excess carbon emissions from the atmosphere, according to @globalforests data. #deforestation #suruí #rondonia #amazon #indigenous #timber #forest #climatechange #globalwarming #stopbolsonaro #conservation #nature #historiasamazonicas @historiasamazonicas #everydayclimatechange

#Repost @natgeo • • • • • • Photo by Steve Winter @stevewinterphoto | Forests are vitally important to our blue planet; they provide us with about 50% of the wildlife and 2/3 of the plant life on Earth, and 80% of the world's biodiversity is found in forests. Forests pump the oxygen we need to live. Each tree produces enough oxygen for 12 people. They cool the planet by absorbing carbon and they provide us with freshwater, as they help make it rain! Forests, grasslands, and mountains provide 75% of freshwater. Our planet is connected and we are part of it all. We need to work toward a future in which we protect 50% of our planet, so we have a future for generations to come. Take a walk in the woods and hear the symphony of nature, or take a walk on the beach, and you will find that nature heals. @africaparksnetwork @sanctuaryasia #natgeo

#Repost @history • • • • • • Today Rome’s “Holy Stairs,” believed by some Catholics to have been climbed by Jesus in Jerusalem, have been uncovered from their protective wooden casing for the first time in nearly three centuries. The 28 marble steps will remain uncovered in order for devout pilgrims to climb them on their knees until they are covered again in June. The stairs are known as the “Scala Sancta,” and legend has it that they were part of Pontius Pilate’s Jerusalem palace and brought to Rome in 326 by St. Helen, the mother of Roman emperor Constantine, after she converted to Christianity. The stairs will be undergoing repairs and renovation. #Caotholicism #Jesus #HolyStairs #ScalaSancta #history

#Repost @natgeo • • • • • • Photo by @lynseyaddario | Noor, 7, kisses her baby brother, Abdullah, one month old, as she watches over him in the reception area of Al-Hol camp after coming with her mother in the Islamic State's final days in Baghouz, Deir Ezzour Province. Several thousand women and children arrived at the registration area of Hol camp over a few days and waited to get situated. Since December, nearly 60,000 have arrived, pushing the camp to its breaking point, aid workers have said. About 100, mostly children, have died either en route to the camp or shortly after arriving, due to acute malnutrition, pneumonia, hypothermia, and diarrhea, according to the International Rescue Committee. The U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF ) claimed victory in late March over the last remaining sliver of land controlled by the brutal Islamic state in the town of Baghouz, as tens of thousands of the fighters’ family members have surrendered through a human corridor set up by the SDF during the past six weeks under heavy bombardment and intense clashes. Women and children, most of whom continued to pledge their unwavering support of ISIS and some who were likely being used as human shields, had been living in tunnels and caves with limited food, medicine, and sanitation. A humanitarian crisis emerges as ISIS falls in northern Syria. #natgeo

#Repost @natgeo • • • • • • Photo by @babaktafreshi | On this summer night I was on the edge of Haleakala volcanic crater, about 10,000 feet high, on the Hawaiian island of Maui. Most visitors come to the summit for sunset or sunrise views. But to me, as a night photographer for two decades, the real show is dusk to dawn! Haleakala is a superb stargazing location, due to altitude and thin air well as being away from light pollution and often above the clouds. It was two in the morning: The crystal-clear sky was filled with stars but in the distance, over the Pacific Ocean, a thunderstorm was flashing in a supercell cloud every minute. I was imaging close-up views with a telephoto lens, but let in enough of the star-filled sky in constellation Ophiuchus to embrace the subject.
