Rufescent Tiger Heron: 'Ocean & Climate Change Management Plan?,' Gore's 'Truth' - 20 Ft Sea Rise, Solar Car, Noel Kempff Mercado Nat. Park UNESCO WHS

Al Gore's 'An Inconvenient Truth' film projects a median 20 feet sea level rise, drawing on an abundance of scientific evidence.

Let's produce worldwide Art Haines' Infinity Miles per Gallon SunneV Solar Car {} & move as much commerce, which produces carbon, as we can (such as travel to meetings and conferences, etc.) into Second Life and other virtual worlds.

What's the world's 'Ocean & Climate Change Management Plan'?

Noel Kempff Mercado National Park UNESCO World Heritage Site

So many, and such a diversity of, species - in Boliva in the Amazon!

"It is estimated that the park has approximately 4.000 species of vascular plants. There exist diverse types of bromelias, passifloras, heliconias, arĂ¡ceas and palm trees. There are also important types of wood like the "Mara". The area encompasses five important ecosystems ranging from Amazonian rain forest, gallery forest and semi-deciduous tropical forest to flooded savanna and dry cerrado.


The Park is home to more than 130 species of mammals (including rare river otters, river dolphins, tapirs, spider and howler monkeys, the giant armadillo, giant anteaters and endangered jaguars, including a population of black jaguars), 620 species of birds (including 9 species of macaw, possibly the highest number of species in any one protected area), and 70 species of reptiles, including black caiman.


In this area there are more than 617 species of birds (20% of the all bird species in South America). The most recent studies say that these numbers will increase once migratory birds are included.


In this park there exist nearly 74 species of reptiles including the black caiman, snakes, and other rare species.


The park has 347 species of insect, in these are a lot of the rarest in the world. They are unfortunately not studied yet. It has a huge collection of butterflies in the most beautiful colors there are."
