As a very busy news week comes to an end, I thought it would be fitting to post a captivating video. A friend of mine emailed me this video link earlier this week and I finally got around to checking it out.

I think this is the perfect video to show our appreciation for all that is wild and the dedication and commitment of activists worldwide, many of whom will attend the largest climate rally in history this Sunday. Hats off to the 48 courageous leaders who were arrested this week in front of the White House protesting the Keystone XL pipeline.

Enjoy.

This is a non-commercial attempt from www.sanctuaryasia.com and www.facebook.com/sanctuaryasiapage, to highlight the fact that world leaders, irresponsible corporates and mindless 'consumers' are combining to destroy life on earth. It is dedicated to all who died fighting for the planet and those whose lives are on the line today. The cut was put together by Vivek Chauhan, a young film maker, together with naturalists working with the Sanctuary Asia network. Content credit: The principal source for the footage was Yann Arthus-Bertrand's incredible film HOME www.homethemovie.org. The music was by Armand Amar. Thank you too Greenpeace and timescapes.org.

The Trump administration pushed through an exemption to clean air rules, effectively freeing heavy polluting, super-cargo trucks from following clean air rules. It rushed the rule without conducting a federally mandated study on how it would impact public health, especially children, said the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Inspector General Charles J. Sheehan in a report released yesterday, as the AP reported.
