From sustainability hacks to the latest on climate change to Mother Nature appreciation, Earth is a place to share anything and everything about the planet we call home.
I love the joy of the holidays. Twinkly lights. Cocoa delights. Snowy nights. Growing up I cherished every Christmas tradition, no questions asked. Picking out a tree that we’d trim to a holly, jolly soundtrack. Plugging in each string of lights and playing the game Which Bulb Is the Dud? Sneaking downstairs in awe at the vast number of colorfully wrapped presents under the tree and trying to guess which of us four kids would get the biggest one. Salivating over myriad crockpots lined up at my grandparents’ house stewing for our Christmas feast.
The Great Christmas Tree Debate: Is a Real or an Artificial Tree Better for the Environment?
Introduction America today is a country divided. There is the great political divide of our times between the “Red Team” and the “Blue Team.” There are the “vaccinated” and the “unvaccinated” when it comes to COVID. There are those who intensely follow sports, celebrities, crypto...whatever, and those who feel that such pursuits are a waste of time. And more and more, our positions are hardening on seemingly everything, where we see fellow travelers as being with us and those who see things in an opposite, or even neutral way, as being against us.
The Roundest Birds I've Ever Seen
The bearded tit has a silly name. But that’s okay, because it is a silly bird. This name is both titter-inducing and inaccurate — the species is technically called a ‘bearded reedling’ and is not in the tit family at all. Yet, British bird enthusiasts are a stubborn — and easily amused — bunch, so the colloquial ‘bearded tit’ has stuck.
What to Consider When Buying Limited-Edition Wildlife Prints
Wildlife prints for sale, including limited-edition wildlife prints, can be found on all corners of the internet. However, if you are worried about the ethical considerations of wildlife photography, buying limited-edition wildlife art prints is more difficult than would initially seem.

Fashion as a Driver for Change

Haven for Healing
If super-model mini-pigs were a thing, Chandra would grace the cover of GQ. Thick black and white hair covers his body, leaving only his perfectly round pink pot belly exposed. His almond-shaped eyes gaze impishly from under long white eyelashes. While not endowed with legs-for-days, his petite hooves do add a dash of daintiness to his sashay. And the velvety ears, always alert, are waiting to hear a favorite word or two—apples, kisses, belly rubs. Chandra is gorgeous and it’s obvious he knows it; he exudes sangfroid.
In Defense of Spiders
When I was a small child, my mother kept a grotesque collection of enormous spiders in jars lining a dusty shelf in our basement. I remember sneaking into this forgotten corner to peek at the sinister legs and bulbous bodies of these tiny monsters. This was consistent with my fascination at the time for all things macabre. The spider held the same power over me as witches, vampires and goblins. All of which equated to sleepless nights and unspeakable terror in my young mind.
Entering Black Africa
Writing about the arts of Black Africa awakes, inevitably, a delicate predicament of equilibrium between its ethnology and aesthetics, both being equally important viewpoints.

Dino Species Has 'Something Never Seen Before'
A fossil found in Chile is from an unusual looking canine measured dinosaur species that had a one of a kind cutting tail weapon, researchers revealed Wednesday. A few dinosaurs had spiked tails they could use as cutting weapons, and others had tails with clubs. The new species, portrayed in a review in the diary Nature, has something never seen before on any creature: seven sets of "edges" spread out sideways, similar to a cutting weapon utilized by old Aztec champions, says lead writer Alex Vargas. "It's a truly strange weapon," says Vargas, a University of Chile scientist, per the AP. "Books on ancient creatures for youngsters need to refresh and place this unusual tail in there. ... It simply looks insane."

Holding Flippers with a Sea Turtle
When I was eleven, I found myself lying on my stomach on a black sand beach in Hawaii, staring into the wise, old eyes of a massive sea turtle. I lay there for the majority of the afternoon, communing with the creature, and he taught me one of the greatest lessons I've learned in this roller-coaster existence that has been my life.
