  1. The Kauai 'O'o (Kauaʻi ʻōʻō) was a bird species that lived on the islands of Hawaii. Due to habitat destruction by human activities and exploitation, and after humans introduced invasive species to the islands, this bird species went extinct in the late 1980’s. The Kauai 'O'o mated for life and both the male and the female had a distinct mating call. Wikipedia describes it as a very vocal, making hollow, erratic, flute-like calls.

    The bird was last sighted in 1985, and the last sound recording was made in 1987. Listen to the last bird of his kind singing a mating call, to a female that would never come.

    Truly heart-breaking.

    Seasons changing sets the climate’s evolution and shows us the hidden life of our planet which we can’t see with our own eyes. A recent shift in the seasonal dynamic pattern describes the current ecological crisis in the best way.

    Yeah, I really miss our four seasons. It was decades since we had a proper winter. Now it's mostly a short spring, and then a long and sweltering summer that ends with a dark and wet autumn. :(

    Yeah Solar panels are good but you need to think more of if you live in cold areas cause there might be issue of sunlight.

     
     
     

    Sure, there are less sunlight in colder regions. But solar panels work great in these places as well! Believe it or not, but the cold and snow in these regions actually help the solar panels in various ways, such as cleaning the panels when the snow melts, the increased reflection of light off white snow helps increase the output, and even the cold helps increase the efficiency of the actual panels, and so on. And yes, there might be long nights in the arctic regions during the winter, but solar power in the North is not only possible, but also profitable.
