Rename All Birds Named After White People

10,000 Birds

The ornithological practice of naming species after dead white people — almost universally dead white men, with the exceptions of Lucy’s , Grace’s , Virginia’s , and Blackburnian Warblers , (which are named for dead white women) is fundamentally an index of ornithology’s complicity with the history of European imperialism and settler colonialism. So, a proposal: let’s stop naming non-European birds after people of European descent.

Paying people to live in rural areas

Environmental Economics

The Council released its recommendations a while back, and among them is a plan to pay people to move to rural Georgia: To reverse the current population migration trend, the council proposes a "Rural Relocate and Reside” program designed to incentivize rural living, especially for professional, high wage earners through a local and state government partnership that. Paying people to live in rural areas thus has a negative side-effect of effectively subsidizing energy consumption. (My

Gardening myths most people believe but that are not true

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) If you are interested in growing a garden, there are lots of people offering advice from the internet, to books to even those you know very well. Organic compounds derived from plants and animals may be more biodegradable than man-made chemicals, but it is just so wrong to think that they are all harmless to people or the environment.

Therefore you can imagine my suspicion when I started to receive calls from various journalists to comment on cases of Hooded Crows attacking people. It only lasts for a day or two before they take flight themselves, but people do not respond with much understanding. While I expect owls to use their claws to draw blood, crows don’t have much in that regards and I presume that they peck people with their beaks.

Save the turtles – from people!

Green Prophet

This day was created to help people celebrate turtles and tortoises and protect their disappearing habitats. Gazelle Valley Park, an urban nature park in the heart of Jerusalem, is taking advantage of the World Turtle Day by campaigning for people to give up their pet turtles and bring them to the park. We contacted the Israel Nature and Parks Authority, and we told them about the fact that people have turtles at home.
