Every day, the news is more and more grim. The denialists have achieved their goals, and prevented the corporations from stopping, and now we face several possible threats to our continued existence.
One article just published reveals the newest way we have denied our own future. Not only is there the possibility of ocean acidification, there is also the problem of bleaching our corals around the world. www.ecowatch.com/coral-reef-bl…
This will result in the destruction of about 50% of our oxygen production.
Even if you don't believe in this or buy into the greater threat, you'd have to be insane to ignore the possibility. The precautionary principal. Do a cost benefit analysis, for Christ's sake! The worst case for avoiding this is huge, granted. But it is at least survivable. The worst case for continued willful ignorance is the end. Make no mistake, we probably won't die of heat directly, at least in the northern or southern areas. But we will either starve or choke. Loss of the glaciers, which provide something like 60 to 80% of the water used in agriculture will result in the loss of our civilization when the food store freezers are empty. e360.yale.edu/features/loss_of…
Oh well, no one ever said we were going to be here forever, no species has. The heartbreaking thing is that we COULD have. We were supposed to be the thinking ape. We rose above all animals (As though we were anything other than!) and ran the world. I read all the classical golden age science fiction books, by Clarke, Asimov, Silverberg, and so on. I grew up with a conceit the we WERE special. We could have been the masters of time and space, but instead, we fouled our nest, and are no smarter than yeast.

A tree hugging, artistic, astronaut wannabe. Hate Corporations, and Extreme Right wing politics. (sorry! can't please everyone!) I think the planet is beyond saving at this point, but we gotta keep trying anyway. And by that, I mean, the planet will survive just fine without us, but most of the life as we know it will probably go extinct with us. I go between hoping the economy will collapse, so we stop developing everything within our field of view, and hoping we conquer space, so we can keep going, long enough to grow the hell up!


Live long, and prosper!

Thanks! There's always something brewing. Right now, I'm building the polar lights 1/350th scale Enterprise Refit. It's humongous.
After I purchase the lighting kits, and whatever I build from scratch, it'll be the star attraction for a while!
Robert.

High praise! 
Over the years, I have been extremely lucky to live in a place with so much beauty. A small percentage of what I've shot has turned out okay!
I still wince at what I've shot, and hope the faults and errors in my work are not too noticeable.
Anyways, I'll try my best to keep developing (tiny photographic pun), hopefully, as I get older, things won't dry up, inspiration wise.
LLAP!
Robert.

Developing...huh, huh, I get it.
I am awed by your gallery, not just the photos,
the paintings, drawings, miniature work, is there 
anything you can't do? Your range of talent is really
impressive. I am lime green with envy.

Uhmm, well there's always my complete deficit of powers regarding women, but we'll leave that out for now, as I'm approaching the airlock of life, rather than the bird of youth!
I used to have a friend, we grew up together, and learned all we could about photography, and visual effects. We even had a partnership and did some of the work I've posted here, but eventually, he left for Toronto, and I just couldn't uproot my life. He went on to greener pastures, and even won a Canadian Gemini award for the effects work on the tv movie of the week, "Arrow", about the Canadian attempt to manufacture the world's best fighter/recon aircraft. Anyways, I've  always felt a little bit of envy for what he achieved, but also happiness for him. 
However, almost all of the effects work these days is cgi, (Interstellar notwithstanding) and it just leaves me cold, not for what it can accomplish, but the process. It just doesn't interest me. I love the hand made crap that makes people go "holy cow".
So, yeah! Thanks!
