APR 23: SIBERIAN PUSS HELIOS – CROWN OF CREATION? PEST OF NATURE!

HELIOS, THE SIBERIAN PUSS - ANNOYED ABOUT THE CROWNS OF CREATION!

I'M HELIOS, THE SIBERIAN PUSS!

HELIOS - ANNOYED ABOUT THE CROWNS OF CREATION!

You have no idea how grateful we are for the visits of the Crowns of Creation!
Your loud Clamor and Noise is always a welcome diversion in the boring Life of us Forest Dwellers!
What a joy for us when you let your yapping Mutt run around freely in our forest.
How good to all Forest Plants, which you trample ruthlessly on the quest for a snug picnic area in our forest!
What a thrill for us, when you, in disregard of all bans, make everywhere open Fires!
How nice, that you dump your whole Garbage always here before you at last vamoose home!
What an Eye Candy, to look at all the empty Beer Cans, PET Bottles and Plastic Bags, that mess our forest up!

HELIOS - WITH UNCONCEALED SARCASM!

I wish you a joyous ride home in your sport utility vehicle with permanent 4-wheel drive, which you have not yet paid off!
Besides you, on the passenger seat, your constantly nagging wife!
Behind you, on the back seat, your mewl kids!
And in addition, a dumb mutt who incessantly barks!

HELIOS - FULL OF GLOATING!

Soon is your weekend over!
And tomorrow you have to fritter your anyway fucking life again away with your dull witted job!
And keep in mind, it's better when you evade your boss!
He is in a bad temper too, for he had likewise such a sucky ride home, like you!

HELIOS - SOME FOOD FOR THOUGHTS BY ALEXANDER VON HUMBOLDT!

Mere communion with nature, mere contact with the free air, exercise a soothing yet comforting and strengthening influence on the wearied mind, calm the storm of passion, and soften the heart when shaken by sorrow to its inmost depths.

With most animals, as with man, the alertness of the senses diminishes after years of work, after domestic habits and progress of culture.

ALEXANDER VON HUMBOLDT (14 September 1769 – 6 May 1859)
German polymath, geographer, naturalist, explorer, and proponent of Romantic philosophy and science.
Humboldt travelled extensively in both Americas, exploring and describing them for the first time from a modern Western scientific point of view.


MAY 22: LITTLE PIONEER TREE IN ALPS – HIGH TIME TO LISTEN TO ALEXANDER VON HUMBOLDT!

LITTLE LARCH TREE IN SWISS ALPS - HAVE REVERENCE FOR US, THE TREES!

FOOD FOR THOUGHT BY A GREAT MAN!

«HAVE REVERENCE FOR THE TREE!
IT IS ONE GREAT MIRACLE, AND IT WAS SACRED TO YOUR ANCESTORS.
ENMITY TOWARDS THE TREE IS A SIGN OF THE INFERIORITY OF A PEOPLE
AND OF THE LOW MIND OF THE INDIVIDUAL!

German polymath, geographer, naturalist, explorer, and proponent of Romantic philosophy and science.

SCIENTIFIC PIONEER!

Humboldt's quantitative work on botanical geography laid the foundation for the field of biogeography.
Humboldt's advocacy of long-term systematic geophysical measurement laid the foundation for modern geomagnetic and meteorological monitoring.

SCIENTIFIC EXPLORER OF THE AMERICAS!

Between 1799 and 1804, Humboldt travelled extensively in the Americas, exploring and describing them for the first time from a modern Western scientific point of view.
His description of the journey was written up and published in several volumes over 21 years.

FIRST TO RECOGNIZE MAN MADE CLIMATE CHANGE!

He was the first person to describe the phenomenon and cause of human-induced climate change and its consequences on nature and human life!
This already in 1800 and again in 1831, based on observations generated during his travels.
