Beautiful Italy. Was going to visit before the reaper got me, but RE and Palloy talked me out of it.  ;D

I'm Just Bonkers over Ivanka. What a gorgeous lady. President Trump is obviously awfully proud of her. :icon_sunny:

27 images that prove we are in danger. No. 7 left me with my mouth hanging open. 

Sometimes words can be superfluous. These pictures say more than a thousand words.

1. The view of the overdeveloped metropole of Mexico City (with more than 20 million inhabitants).

Pablo Lopez Luz

2. An elephant killed by poachers left to rot.

Kristian Schmidt/Wild Aid

3. A rainforest in flames — goats used to graze here.

Daniel Beltra

4. Trails of excessive air traffic over London.

Ian Wylie

5. A massive truck delivers a load of oil sands for processing. It's hard to believe that oil sand is a leading source of Canadian energy.

Garth Lentz

6. A simple herd farmer cannot withstand the stench of the Yellow River in Inner Mongolia.

Lu Guang

7. A waste incineration plant and its surroundings in Bangladesh.

M.R. Hasasn

8. A fire storm plows through Colorado — increased incidences of wild fires is a result of climate change.

R.J. Sangosti/Denver Post

9. The scars left behind from the mining of oil sands in the Canadian province of Alberta.

Garth Lentz

10. A nighttime spectacle in downtown Los Angeles — the energy demand is incalculable.

Mike Hedge

11. In Oregon, this thousand-year-old forest fell victim to the chain saw for a new dam.

Daniel Dancer

12. The area around Almeria in Spain is littered with greenhouses as far as the eye can see — simply for a richly filled dinner table.

Yann Arthus Bertrand

13. Poachers pose proudly with the coat of a Siberian tiger.

Steve Morgan/Photofusion

14. The Mir Mine in Russia, the largest diamond mine in the world.

Google Earth/ 2014 Digital Globe

15. A dead albatross shows what happens when we litter. A living dumpster.

Chris Jordan

16. And yet another megatropolis — a bird’s eye view of New Delhi (over 22 million inhabitants).

Google Earth/2014 Digital Globe

17. Paradise almost lost: the Maldives, a popular vacation spot that is threatened by rising sea levels.

Peter Essick

18. The beginning of Black Friday at an electronics store in Boise, Idaho.

Darin Oswald/Idaho Statesman

19. Tons (literally) of broken electronics end up in developing countries and are stripped for precious metals by using deadly substances.

Peter Essick

20. The blunder of the Brazilian rain forest is being repeated here in Canada.

Garth Lentz

21. A landfill for worn-out tires in the desert of Nevada.

Daniel Dancer

22. While the entire world watched the events of Fukushima, a massive heat and power station was burning just a few miles away. All attempts to extinguish it where fruitless.

Mainichi Newspapers/AFLO

23. This polar bear starved to death in Svalvard, Norway. Disappearing ice caps are robbing polar bears of both their living space and food.

Ashley Cooper

24. To the last drop: an oilfield in California and the merciless overexploitation of humans.

Mark Gamba/Corbis

25. A massive waterfall from melting pack ice. These masses are the only meltwater and the undeniable proof that climate change is advancing swiftly.

Cotton Coulson/Keenpress

26. A lignite power plant contaminates the air with its discharges.

Jason Hawkes

27. The Indonesian surfer Dede Surinaya rides a wave of filth and trash in Java, Indonesia.

Zak Noyle

“When the Last Tree Is Cut Down, the Last Fish Eaten, and the Last Stream Poisoned, You Will Realize That You Cannot Eat Money.”

This prophecy is becoming a more and more brutal reality. But, even today, not every person is aware of the horrible effects our lifestyles have on nature. So share these evocative pictures with everyone to help raise awareness.

The heads of all the European countries gather and no one sees any point in talking to the Mango-Hued Ballsack.

This hurts my soul to see.  It's abandoned?  I got half a mind to drive up there with my 6X12 SUN trailer and fill that bitch up with books!  Why would they just leave the books?

Poor Whales  :(

                   

                        Rescuers attempt to push stranded whales back into the ocean at Ujong Kareng beach in Aceh province, Indonesia, on Nov. 13. An official said 10 whales were stranded on the beach and attracted hundreds of onlookers who posed for pictures with them. Syahrol Rizal/AP

Friggin barbaric animal creating all that misery. :'(

                     

                         People pray in the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas, on Nov. 12 where 26 people were killed in a shooting attack the week before, as the church opened to the public as a memorial to those killed. Rick Wilking/Reuters

This seems like a worthy, reasonable cause for a protest. Tough to politicize this plea.

                       

                            School children march to express their distress on the alarming levels of pollution in New Delhi on Nov. 15. Thick smog has constricted India's capital this week, smudging landmarks from view and leaving residents frustrated at the lack of meaningful action by authorities. The air was the worst it has been all year, spiking to 75 times the level considered safe  :o by the World Health Organization. Manish Swarup/AP

What a despicable war. So much misery and nothing accomplished but death and destruction. :'(
