Some New Zealand environmental news (David's choice). [52 kB]

A little humour (?):

Calvin: 'The more you know, the harder it is to take decisive action.'                
Calvin: 'Once you become informed, you start seeing complexities              
and shades of gray.'

Calvin: 'You realize that nothing is as clear and simple as it first appears.
Ultimately, knowledge is paralyzing.'
Calvin: 'Being a man of action, I can't afford to take that risk.'                          

Hobbes: 'You're ignorant, but at least you act on it.'

'"The aliens came, from a far distant world
In a large yellow ship that blinked as it twirled.
It rounded the moon, and entered our sky.
We knew They had come but we didn't know why.

"Bright the next morning, with noisy commotion,
The ship slowly moved out over the ocean.
It lowered a tube and drained the whole sea
For transport back home to their galaxy.

"The tube then sucked up the clouds and the air,
Causing no small amount of Earthling despair.
With nothing to breathe, we started to die.
"Help us! Please stop!" was the public outcry.

"A hatch opened up and the aliens said,
"We're sorry to learn that you soon will be dead.
But though you may find this slightly macabre,
We prefer your extinction to the loss of our job!"'

"Calvin: 'That's my science fiction story. Think it's too far-fetched?'

"Hobbes: 'Not enough, really.'"        --THE DAYS ARE JUST *PACKED*, Bill Watterson
