Project Gutenburg on Fungus

Was thinking- hey- wonder what Project Gutenberg has on fungi and mycology.


Fungi: Their Nature and Uses by M. C. Cooke looks like a very in depth text. It’s written in a lilted style and looks to be chocked with information and illustrations.

Military contribution to global climate crisis

Military assault on global climate (2011)

The projected full costs of the Iraq war (estimated $3 trillion) would cover “all of the global investments in renewable power generation” needed between now and 2030 to reverse global warming trends.

Some argue that the death of the people killed by war causes the emissions to even out, making the deforestation the actual environmental travesty, but I’m not convinced and even kind of angry about the suggestion. The remaining people have to rebuild which causes them to expend more energy tham they would have and the people killed are usually not people living carbon intensive lives, but being killed by those people for the purposes of enriching themselves to live even more carbon intensive lives. I’m also perturbed that we don’t haven’t had any additional research I’m this area for 6 years.

But the Wikipedia article on it is also a good starting place for wrapping ones mind around what we continue to do to ourselves.

Cross stitch 

Cross stitching takes forever. After many hours this weekend, still haven’t completed a hoop area. But getting close.

I have ordered some replacement floss for the brown and grey because I have misplaced them. I also ordered floss I’m many colors as well as some roving and mixed batt. 

My next two cross stitching projects~

(This one I will of course add aerial silks to.)
