Nature in the News...

Every once in a while, Nature does make the news. How rare this is (apart from drastic weather) seems to be a measure of our distance from the natural world. Today we have two posts about Nature in the media.

Unfortunately, it seems to me, the evening news-- along with most of our society --only notices Nature when human plans or goals are being somehow interfered with—hence the “pesky” flickers, below. Have you noticed how often we remark—and resent—these small signals that events in Nature are healthy, that reproduction is still going on?
