Hello everyone!  It’s been a while since I posted but I intend to resume the mantle of sharing environment news!  I have also created a Google+ profile where I will be posting articles, images and videos surrounding my interests.  Should you wish to check it out my name is Katarina Claire.

I’m working toward getting a book with environmental and racial themes published.  It’s title ‘Call of the Black Panther’ and at my website (Katarina Claire’s Corner) I have listed a plot summary, excerpt and character descriptions.  Any feedback you can give is sincerely appreciated.

This could potentially be more powerful than a sign.  Look in the mirror and what do you see?  What does that person staring back at you stand for?

In 2004, developed nations invested $32 billion in renewable energy while developing nations invested $8 billion. Since then, the pace of investment has accelerated rapidly. By 2011, the rush to adopt green energy technology pushed investment to $280 billion around the world. Unsurprisingly, developed nations invested a substantially higher amount than developing nations. Broken down, this amounts to $186 and $94 billion respectively in 2011. However, the gap certainly has showed signs of narrowing over the years and developing economies overtook their developed counterparts in the public markets category of investment for the first time in 2010.

“A little over 30 years ago, a teenager named Jadav “Molai” Payeng began burying seeds along a barren sandbar near his birthplace in northern India’s Assam region to grow a refuge for wildlife. Not long after, he decided to dedicate his life to this endeavor, so he moved to the site where he could work full-time creating a lush new forest ecosystem. Incredibly, the spot today hosts a sprawling 1,360 acre of jungle that Payeng planted single-handedly.”[Read More Here]
