Bird Death on Midway Atoll
This video is about an island in the ocean at 2000 km from any other coast line. Nobody lives, only birds and yet, you will not believe what you will see here.
Please don’t throw anything into the sea. Unbelievable, just look at the consequences…
sad thing is that many of us will dismiss our participation in this by saying that we don’t throw anything in the ocean. we dispose of our trash in the bin. Many wont see that the trash they throw in the bins indiscriminately will eventually find its way in the oceans because we do not really have the real consciousness of the impact of trash. Change must begin at home…

Volcanic eruptions, while seemingly rare, are actually quite common. There’s around 1,500 active volcanoes on Earth and about 50 of those will erupt in a given year. But rarely will two erupt close to each other. Even rarer is three erupting in proximity. Four? That’s just nuts!
But that’s what is currently happening on Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula, along the northwest edge of the Ring of Fire. This particular string of of eruptions around Tolbachik resulted in huge rivers of lava pouring from fissures in the Earth, but very little ash and debris released into the sky. This allowed an aerial panorama team to helicopter around the bubbling inferno without dying a fiery death.
They put together this amazing interactive volcano panorama that lets you fly above the action from the comfort of your own home, which is much safer than trudging through Siberian ice in order to stand next to exploding magma.
Enjoy that (I did), and then check out this photo tour of the year in volcanic activity from The Atlantic.
