Due to the reduction in pollution caused my the Covid 19 pandemic; people were able to see the Himalayan peaks for the first time in 30 years.
I’m focusing on new normals in environments and landscapes in my project. The Covid 19 pandemic is changing the way we live our lives which is having an effect on the environment around us.
I’ve started to experiment using adobe illustrator as it’s something I wouldn’t usually use to create outcomes.
Task Environmental portrait.
This task is to tell a story through images of someone at work. This is Jennifer, an artisan jeweler based in Largs. Entwined Jewelry in Stanlane Place to be exact.
These are the pre production unedited images straight from the camera. I’ll say no more and let the photographs do the talking.
Many organisms evolved to live in a niche. That is they have adapted to one or more specific characteristic of a habitat. This served them well as it meant there was more resources for them, such as food. However, climate change is changing many aspects of the planet and making many of these niche adaptations obsolete or work against the species they once served.

MIRROR SHIELD PROJECT (2016)
El proyecto se inició para y en el campamento de Oceti Sakowin cerca de Standing Rock, Dakota del Norte por la artista Cannupa Hanska Luger. Tras publicar un video tutorial en las redes sociales invitando a la gente a crear escudos de espejo, personas de todo el país se unieron a la causa enviando estos escudos a los protestantes de la tribu sioux de Standing Rock, para detener la construcción de u oleoducto que iba a cruzar tierras ancestrales.
La fuerza del espejo es su capacidad de reflejar la imagen que tiene delante; mostrandoles a los “antagonistas” de la historia que ellos son los culpables de la destrucción de aquel paraje natural.
Este hecho se ha convertido uno de los más eficaces, populares y duraderos de toda la historia del activismo indio. La oposición al proyecto Dakota Access ha
propiciado un resurgir de la lucha de los sioux, que ha logró unir desde ecologistas y políticos a veteranos de guerra y estrellas de
Whats up ya planet loving fucks, my new job is awful because I am somehow the only environmental engineer in the whole ass environmental department who doesn’t wanna destroy the environment, so today when my boss complained about those “greenies” who “bang their tamborines” to protest “co2 emissions” i lost my shit and went home and died my hair green to let them know where i stand, lets see if i get fired from the environmental department for caring about the environment

I’ve been having a really terrible week and so haven’t really done anything but today I did, hence the update.
I began with therapy, where I have taken the first steps to making sure I’ll still have somewhere to live in a few weeks if everything goes wrong (there is a young person housing scheme that works in the same building as my therapy, my person is talking to them for me to find out what I need to do, without a phone call).
Once I got home, I designed that advert at the top. I am running for Vice President and Sustainability Representative of my college and voting opened last night so I need to spread the word. Its not great but I didn’t think I would be able to do anything today so it’s enough.
I had classes for the rest of the day, including one on writing personal statements for uni. I don’t want to go to uni. They said that it could apply to anything but they clearly are not setting it up so it’s easy to change who you would be writing to. This frustrates me greatly.
Anyway, I did some stuff today. It’s not much but I didn’t think I would even get out of bed so Yay me.
Thinking about the motherland today.
This is the heat death of fields and trees. A stream flows under the road. Meanwhile drivers drive to their destinations. They never really get there. They don’t really know where they’re going or why they are going there.

Whatever religious or spiritual tradition they identify with, most witches agree that there is something sacred about the natural world. We draw our power from the earth beneath our feet, the sky over our heads, and the air in our lungs.
And yet, many of us live in societies that are actively contributing to the destruction of the natural world. Most developed nations have a linear economy, which means resources are extracted and then sent on a one-way trip to consumers who will use them and then throw them away. This leads to overflowing landfills, air and water pollution, and quickly disappearing resources. The World Economic Forum predicts that, if our habits don’t change, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050. And I dearly hope that by now we’re all familiar with the reality of climate change and its devastating impact on global ecosystems.
I’m not trying to scare you, but I do want to point out the hypocrisy of drawing power from the Earth in our magic while simultaneously contributing to her destruction. If we truly want to consider ourselves spiritual allies of the planet, we need to make an effort to live our lives — and practice our magic — in ways that are less harmful to her.
You don’t have to become an environmentalist or switch to a zero waste lifestyle, but we can all make little changes for a more sustainable life. There’s lots of information out there about how to live a more Earth-friendly lifestyle, so in this post I’ll be focusing on how to apply that same philosophy to your witchcraft.
The funny thing about Earth-friendly living is that, the more time you spend taking care of the planet, the more connected you feel to it. I encourage you to try some of the ideas on this list — you’ll be amazed by how quickly you develop a deeper relationship with the Earth and all her creatures.
im watching A life On Earth and idk why but im kinda getting emotional? schools have always taught me that deforestation is horrible, I dont even need to really explain why that is. In my school we havent really touched the environment that much this term. It feels like ive forgotten that this is still a somewhat relevant problem in our day. Can we please stop killing our earth,
to anyone that cares about the environment, appreciates natural beauty, enjoys breathing, enjoys travel… please vote. vote for this election. please do not let trump continue ruining the natural world like he has been. the us has lost so much already and so many animals on the endangered species list are declining even faster than they already were. species have been taken off the list, have disappeared. please. if you care at all. vote.

I feel very lost in life recently, with everything going on politically, environmentally, and racially, it has taken a large impact on my mental.
I feel very powerless and useless even tho I’m doing more than most by constantly advocating and educating on my social media platform and having those hard conversations with friends and family, it’s just hard.
I feel stuck and stressed and I know it is just temporary, but I can’t really see the end so it feels like forever.
P.S. I’m good I’m just goin through it :)
Have you ever seen something orange in a stream and wondered what it is? This is a great example of iron bacteria! As groundwater reaches the surface it sometimes brings iron with it. Iron, oxygen, and water combined make the perfect home for these bacteria!
Ten points if you know what this is!
Our primary necessity of life is air. Oxygen. But there is so much junk thrown into the air: chemical, heavily polluted junk, that it becomes logical that you get other connections. Just acid rain, and other polluted stuff in that rain cobines. And like this, poluted rain it ends up on the food that is grown. This also applies to the organic (healthy?) food. And is that still healthy? Even fish are becoming poisonous from everything that is released into the seas.
Our food supply is therefore under pressure. In Spain nature is being destroyed because a monoculture is created by growing a lot of avocados. A lot of money can be made in it for a few people, so its eminent te got a lot of water for them, therefore it is logical to get even on a illegal scale, that’s water abstraction from nature .., and the land continues is to dry up. Getting turned into a desert. Now even people are being killed there for …? Precisely,…. water!
Everything that goes into the air also returns, in the groundwater in a cycle of 15 to 20 years. Natural form of karma.
All pollution threatens our lives through groundwater, and our drinking water is at stake. In these polluted areas and environments, other life forms usually arises, or through mutation or change in DNA. Even harmful forms, such as viruses. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to understand that.
Look back at Tjernobyl. After years you now see mutated animals that is created by radiation. Or in Japan where of all that rubbish ended up in the seas due to those tsunamis. Fukoshima nuclear power plant that discharged radioactive radiation and radioactive water into the sea.
In Indonesia too. Entire chemical factories there … have lost their contents and everything that was in houses, by earthquakes, and by floods was swepped into the sea. This is: Chemical pollution on a global scale. Or look in China with its floods and destructiveness. And all our nature that is being destroyed all over the world. How about USA?
Does it makes sense? That Mother Earth makes herself heard, strikes back? Or that new viruses arise precisely there, and born, in poluted area’s.
And what do you think of everything that comes from India, 1.3 billion people and what washes into the sea thru the Ganges and Indra into the Indian sea? Countless examples.
Every man is responsible for his own behavior, and what are you doing about it?
