Carbon dioxide concentration to hit record levels this week | Environment | The Guardian

“The 400ppm threshold is a sobering milestone, and should serve as a wake up call for all of us to support clean energy technology and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, before it’s too late for our children and grandchildren,” said Tim Lueker, an oceanographer and carbon cycle researcher with Scripps CO2 Group.

The last time carbon dioxide levels were so high was probably in the Pliocene epoch, between 3.2m and 5m years ago, when Earth’s climate was much warmer than today.

Afghan Women’s Writing Project | Break the Rule

I want to break the rule and say I am in love

My people taught me not to love someone because I am a woman

Because I am a girl

Because of my gender

Because of my culture

Because of my religion

No! God is not against love.

He loves the one who is in love.

I am in Love

Yes!

I am a girl and I am in love

Let me love the one who I want

Let me choose the one who I love

Let me experience what love is

Let me have something that I want for myself

Men can fall in love but women cannot

Why?

We do not have heart?

We do not have feeling?

We do not have choice?

We are not human?

Love is pure

Love is holy

Love is valuable

It is not against the law

It is not against religion

It is not against culture

It is not against humanity

But if it is against the rule

I want to break this rule and say

I am in love

And I love that I am in love
