Bindi Irwin Gets Emotional Seeing Footage Of Late Father Steve Irwin — Talking About His Children's Future

no title

You'd think Bindi Irwin would have seen all her father's shows and interviews by now.

But Steve Irwin was actually pretty darn prolific, and on Sunday his 19-year-old daughter posted a video she'd only just seen.

In an interview, the late "Crocodile Hunter" is asked what could make him give up his career in wildlife conservation, and his answer is his children.

Not that he ever thought Bindi or Robert Irwin would ask him to but that they would take up the cause he started — something that has in fact come true!

No More Chocolate! Scientists Warn Climate Change Is Putting Cacao Plants At Risk!

Filed under: FoodEnvironmentScience!Viral: News

Thanks to climate change, even chocolate is no longer safe!

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicted in a 2016 report that based on climate change factors, cacao is going to be facing a real crisis in the next four decades!

See, chocolate can only be grown within 10 degrees of the equator because of specific temperature requirements. In fact, half the world's chocolate is produced by just two countries: Côte d'Ivoire and Ghana.

By 2050, those countries are looking at a 3.8˚F temperature increase, without the accompanying increase in rainfall of warmer countries! Not good for chocolate!

Thankfully, the Mars company is working hard on helping cacao adapt to the changes with the latest advances, including a new tech called CRISPR, which allows for very small changes to DNA. Whew!

While cacao is not exactly on the edge of extinction, difficulty in cultivation could obviously lead to increased prices in EVERYTHING with chocolate in it.

Something to think about the next time you think about your carbon footprint.

Shailene Woodley Felt Like 'A Caged Animal' After Her Dakota Access Pipeline Protest Arrest!

no title

We hope Shailene Woodley ends up running for Congress one day, because she already sounds like the woke hippie millennial politician America needs!

In a new interview with Marie Claire UK, the actress and *activist* opened up about her arrest after protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline last October, admitting she felt like "a caged animal" during her short time behind bars.

Woodley, an outspoken critic of the crude oil pipeline, explained how the intensity of the peaceful protest at Standing Rock reached levels of a certain dystopian franchise she starred in.

She recalled spotting two U.S. military tanks walking back to her RV, thinking:

"I'm like, ‘This is some Divergent shit.' The only time in my life that I saw a tank like that was on set in Atlanta."

Unfortunately, the dramatic experience only got worse when the 25-year-old was arrested and charged with criminal trespassing and engaging in a riot.

The short time she spent in the slammer was anything but glamorous:

Rick Perry REFUSES To Give Up White House Podium While Claiming Science Isn't Settled On Climate Change! See The Most Frustrated Reactions!

Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpTwitterEnvironment

no title

Much like our environment, the Trump administration is getting a ton of heat for pulling American out of the Paris Climate Agreement.

So to help ease our minds, Energy Secretary Rick Perry held a White House press conference on Tuesday encouraging some "intellectual conversation" on the contentious topic of climate change.

But after rambling for 30 minutes and deflecting reporters' questions, it became clear the former Texas governor had little intellectual conversation himself to offer!

After letting Perry yammer on about the administration's "Energy Week" for over half an hour, deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders started giving Perry the signal to wrap it up.

But the Dancing with the Stars veteran continued to speak, practically causing reporters to beg for Sanders to pull the plug on the radioactive energizer bunny!

Watch a clip Perry failing to understand a reporter's question (below), along with scathing Twitter reactions!

Donald Trump has always made the wrong calls, but withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord to try to "make a deal that's fair" to the U.S. is just so insanely wrong it's… well, it's absurd.

Thankfully, we know some folks who excel in the absurd — late night hosts!

First up, Jimmy Kimmel dropped some easy facts on the POTUS — mostly about how EVERYONE ELSE wanted to stay in, even major corporations like Exxon Mobil and Wal-Mart. As Jimmy says:

"Apparently these big companies ran the numbers, and it turns out if climate change destroys human life on Earth, it could be bad for business."

no title

Remember when Leonardo DiCaprio was willing to meet with President-elect Donald Trump to discuss clean energy and green jobs?

Yeah, those days are over.

Hour for hour, the Celebrity Apprentice star has been the worst POTUS we've ever had for the environment, culminating in his decision to withdraw the United States from the 195-country Paris Climate Accord.

We're guessing Leo won't be invited to any more closed door meetings as he had some understandably harsh words for Trump, accompanying a photo of the White House:

"Today, the future livability of our planet was threatened by President Trump's careless decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement."
