Are any of you familiar with the Periodical cicadas? In my area they are suposed to come out every 17 years as I am in the northern region of my particular state. The last time these critters emmerged was when I was 7 and I am turning 20 in under a month, which puts 13 years.. four years too early for my region. Could this be an indication of a climate band moving up?

If you ask me the fact that they are out now concerns me greatly.

Hey there activist. Could use a little help getting this one off the ground…

The Brazilian congress is now voting on a
project that will reduce the Amazon forest to 50% of
its size. It will take one MINUTE to read this, but PLEASE put your
names on the list and forward this on as instructed below. The area to be
deforested is 4 times the size of Portugal and would be mainly used
for agriculture and pastures for livestock. All the wood is to be sold to
international markets in the form of wood chips, by large
multinational companies. The truth is that the soil in the Amazon forest is
useless without the forest itself. Its quality is very acidic and the region is
prone to constant floods. At this time more than 160,000 square
kilometres deforested with the same purpose are abandoned and in the
process of becoming deserts meaning that this proposal is in the
short-term interests of a few, and in the long term interests of none. Please
copy the text into a 'new e-mail' and put your complete name in the
list below, and send to everyone you know. (DON'T JUST FORWARD IT --
AS IT WILL THEN END up with ROWS AND ROWS of) If you are the 400th
person to sign please send a copy to:fsaviolo@openlink.com.br
