Filed under: HealthScary!InsectsCrazzzzyBugs

An inch-long cockroach was pulled out of a man's ear! Gross!!

Oh gross… oh no… we think we're gonna be sick!

This is the grossest, most terrifying thing ever!

A man in Australia was woken up by a sharp pain in his right ear… a cockroach had crawled in!!

Living in Australia, and knowing almost every creature in that country is out to kill you, he was a bit worried, saying:

Giant Mechanical Polar Bear Leads Greenpeace Protest

Filed under: Mama NatureBearPolar Bear

Greenpeace walked a giant polar bear through Central London in protest of Arctic drilling!

Around 3,000 environmentally conscious, caring people marched through the streets of central London as a half protest, half performance demonstration.

They were coming out against oil companies in the Arctic and they were led by a giant mechanical polar bear!!

The giant beast was the size of a double decker bus and required 15 puppeteers and 20 volunteers to walk it down Lambeth Palace Road towards Shell headquarters.

The giant bear led protesters on a call to ban oil and gas drilling in the Arctic as this would affect the habitat of polar bears and could affect the entire environment!

We're pretty sure if you want to send a message and get noticed, a giant, 3-ton bear is certainly a good way to do it! Ha!

Hopefully the gas companies got the message: "Stop messing up the Arctic or we'll use our giant bear to eat your office buildings!"

Or something along those lines. LOLz!

Ted Danson Petitions President Obama To Save Whales And Dolphins

Filed under: Barack ObamaMama NatureDolphinsWhalesTed Danson

Ted Danson

The Obama administration is considering using seismic air gun blasts to search for oil and gas under the ocean seabed.

The problem with this is that the blasts are 100,000 times louder than a jet engine and they'd occur every 10 seconds for months!!

There's a very good chance that 138,500 whales and dolphins will be injured and maybe even killed by these blasts.

Luckily, they have Ted Danson fighting for them. He said:

The Car Of The Future Is SOO Eco-Friendly Thanks To Leaves And Sunshine!!!

Filed under: Tech TalkMama Nature

artificial leaf technology

WooHoo!! We LOVE the Earth!!

Simulating the way leaves harness the energy of the sun, scientists have a discovered a way to use "artificial leaf technology" to possibly powers ships and planes…. and even cars!!!

According to Professor Richard Cogdell:

What you need is to be able to lock that energy up in some sort of storage fluid that’s available on demand, and that’s what fuel is. To really sustain our way of life after the oil runs out we have to be able to make, renewably and sustainably, dense portable fuels for transport, especially for aeroplanes and ships. We’re looking at photosynthesis to see whether we can learn to copy it in a more robust and efficient way. What we’ve realised in just the last couple of months is that we should be able to use electricity to power these reactions. I would be very disappointed if this wasn’t working in the real world in 30 years time.

Uhm, ya!!

We'd be totes disappointed too!!

Oil is soooo last century!! Time to be smart about the way we use our energy!!!

About 18 oil executives from companies including BP, Shell and Statoil were tricked into watching a 15-minute power-point presentation about environmental concerns over drilling in Greenland.

Several Greenpeace activists dressed up in suits and went to an actual seminar hosted by Greenland’s Raw Materials Directorate, at Nordatlantens Brygge in Copenhagen.

The undercover activists waited in the elevator until the businessmen arrived and then told them that the meeting had moved to a different room.

A room that was
