The Dog Ate My Homework

My post for the A to Z theme reveal is a might late. My theme is

Environmental Science Facts.  

The most aggravating thing a student ever did was interrupt me in class. Then paused as if he was giving me a pass and said, "that was my opinion and it was OK." I was defining the difference between niche and habitat.

Somewhere, somehow, Rush Limbaugh comes to mind, conservation has become political. I ask why. A healthy environment affects all of us. When they say an incident would increase say a cancer risk by 1 in 10,000, it means 1 person who would never get cancer out of 10,000 gets cancer.

The Flint water crisis is part of this. Just because you can't see the lead in water does not mean it does not have an affect.

So this post is my activism.

The following posts are just the facts of environmental education. No preaching. Just facts.

    1. I hope so. Teachers are such a busy lot. I don't have many posts on this blog. But the traffic is incredible. Folks pop in, get what they need. So I don't know what effect regular posting may have.

    1. Oh no, I feel the pressure. She will probably be relieved someone regular knows climate change is real.

  8. I like your theme and I like how you will be stating the facts and educating us rather than "preaching" things; looking forward to reading your posts.

    (In response to your comment on my blog, yes we did get rid of a lot of things, not much since we didn't have much. The movers estimate our weight of things to be 4800; of that I'm thinking 40% of it is hubby's musical things, amps, recording equipment, etc, and that doesn't count the 12 guitars he'll be transporting himself, not entrusting them to the moving company. I could easily live in a one bedroom apartment; but I'm married to a musician :)

  14. "Conservation has become political"—YES! And more; not just conservation but science itself. Sometimes it feels like we're moving backwards, into the Dark Ages—when belief, not facts, ruled, and "truth" was taken on faith rather than on the scientific method. So YES, I'll be looking forward to your posts. Eagerly.

    Thanks for the visit over at Life In Dogs earlier, and for the lovely comment. You made my day :)

  20. And indeed just because you don't see the lead in the water does NOT mean it does not affect a person!

  21. Environmental Science Facts will be a breath of fresh air amongst what I usually see: environmental science opinions disguised as facts. So glad to see someone who knows the difference!
