What 400 ppm C02 Means

Rotinonshonni ónhwe - Tkanatáhere

On May 2, after nightfall shut down photosynthesis for the day in Hawaii, carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere touched 400 parts-per-million there for the first time in at least 800,000 years. Near the summit of volcanic Mauna Loa—where a member of the Keeling family has kept watch since 1958—sensors measured this record through sunrise the following day. Levels have continued to dance near that benchmark in recent days, registering above 400 ppm for the first time in eons after midnight on May 7. When the measurements started the daily average could be as low as 315 ppm, already up from a pre-industrial average of around 280 ppm.

This measurement is just the hourly average of CO2 levels high in the Hawaiian sky, but this family’s figures carry more weight than those made at other stations in the world as they have faithfully kept the longest record of atmospheric…

Is Noise around You – Making You Sick?

Trees and plants are very important in areas where people live even as in wilderness-they absorb loud sounds, and often transform pollution like carbon dioxide into cleaner air. Studies have shown that people living in areas with more tree cover, shrubs, flowers etc are happier and kinder to one another, less short tempered etc. I believe it was shown that they are healthier too which would go right along with this article. Thank you for sharing this Laura! especially the healing links at the end!

Greenwashing Senators Call for Increased Logging in National Forests

Earth First! Newswire


From the Cascadia Field Office of the Earth First! Journal

As part of the over-all land grab taking place for national resources in the US, the supposedly “green” Senator Ron Wyden from Oregon has joined with others to call for increased logging in national forests.

Since rising to the head of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, Wyden has been rubbing elbows with the energy industry and showing his mettle as a die-hard profiteer. But his record is not entirely deplorable. He has spoken out against CIA assassinations as well as more egregious mining practices.

Still, a number of sources have reported that he and his national resources cronies are looking to increase logging by 20% in national forests across the country. Click below for a breaking communique from the Mt. Hood watchdog group, Bark:

New Moon Phase – Moon in Taurus/Gemini

Ruling Mahavidya – Tara

Today’s picture was taken J. Schoeppmeyer by of the Solar Eclipse over Australia and posted on spaceweather.com.

We pick up even more speed as the Moon moves into fast and airy Gemini today. The tendency is toward carelessness, superficiality, impulsivity, derelection, and a know-it-all attitude. We don’t want to get swept up with any sort of mindset that hints of hopelessness. So we will counter with closer attention to details, patience, and a general slowing of the pace.

The Mahavidya Tara comes on scene later today. I would like to remind everyone that most of what you read about the Mahavidyas in “ancient” Hindu texts or on the internet is patriarchal/control-oriented distortions of the truth. The Mahavidyas are not Hindu. Hindu religion assimilated them, just as all religions subjugate indigenious deities when people are conquered. The Mahavidyas pre-date Hinduism by a long, long shot. We can, however, distill their essential natures through very loose association with prevailing ideas and engaging in direct communication or instruction with them. The Ten Mahavidyas: Tantric Visions of the Divine Feminine by David Kinsley is a scholarly (albeit patriarchal) collection of Mahavidya information, but is the best I have read.

The goddess embodied as the planet, Sophia, communicates with each of us in different ways. She communicates directly, but her preferred method for general instruction and communication is through a “step down” process. She steps down into the persona of the goddess Kali, and then in turn through the personae of Kali – the other Mahavidyas.

Of all the Mahavidyas, Tara is said to be most akin to Kali. In my interactions, Kali has very dark skin and Tara very light skin. Kali is intense at all times; Tara has an almost genteel quality until she is pushed to activate her ferocity. To me, Tara is very “Scarlet O’Hara-ish” – without the damsel in distress aspect. None of the Mahavidyas is a damsel in distress, by any means. Tara is playful, flirtatious, and wily and she loves beautiful things, but she will engage in a flash and strike down darkness.

There is a Tibetan version of Tara and a Hindu version of Tara, so if you research you will see that the versions are diametrically opposed. We immediately see the schism of patriarchy.

Tara is known as the “Goddess Who Guides Through Troubles.” Isn’t this exactly the energy we need right now?

I will be joining the Zany Mystic himself, Lance White, tomorrow night on “A Fireside Chat” at 10 pm ET/ 7 pm CT. All are invited!
