As The White House released its budget request for the 2018 fiscal year on Tuesday, the Trump administration made good on its promise to target deep cuts to federal spending on climate, energy, science, research and other programs widely seen as critical to America’s ability to adapt to a warming world and reduce its impact on the climate...

Have been on the lookout for ‘dodder’ for several years now….. this year, after the mild Spring and higher moisture, I found many clumps scattered here and there. Exciting!

Here is a link for more info about dodder… if you are interested. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuscuta

Eilen tulivat kehräämöstä sinne syksyllä viemämme villat lankoina takaisin.
Kyllä nyt taas riittää värjättävää lankaa:) Aluksi värjään lisää lankaa torille, ja sen jälkeen myös nettikauppaan. Tarvitaan ensin lisää sinisiä, jotka värjään nyt jauhemaisella luonnonindigolla, ja paljon sinisiä tarvitaan myös pohjaksi vihreisiin, jotka ovat jo ihan lopussa. Omat väritattaren taimet odottavat istutusta ulos, ja ehkä uskallan laittaa ne harson alle loppuviikosta. Morsingot ovat myös jo taimella, samoin resedat selvisivät hyvin siirrosta ulos penkkiin. Ulkoakin alkaisi jo kohta saada erilaisia lehtiä keltaisten värien lähteeksi. Puutarhassa kukkivat narsissit:).

IN ENGLISH
Yesterday we got yarns from the spinnery, these were made from the wool we took there last November. I have now lots of yarn to dye:) First I have to dye more yarn for the market, and after that also to the online shop. First I need a lot of blue which I will dye with natural indigo powder, also blue is needed as a base for greens which are most already sold out now. My own japanese indigo seedlings are waiting to be planted out, perhaps I will do it later this week if the weather stays warm. After an unusually cold spring it has been now very warm since last week-end. Also woad is already growing, and weld seems to be ok after I transplanted them outside some time ago. Everything has started to grow and there are a lot of green leaves which I can collect to use for yellows. In the garden daffodils are flowering:).

I think it looked nicer in ‘real life’….. the photos seem a bit washed out.

A new scientific analysis finds that the Earth’s oceans are rising nearly three times as rapidly as they were throughout most of the 20th century, one of the strongest indications yet that a much feared trend of not just sea level rise, but its acceleration, is now underway...

LOS ANGELES — The environmental ministers of Canada and Mexico went to San Francisco last month to sign a global pact — drafted largely by California — to lower planet-warming greenhouse pollution. Gov. Jerry Brown flies to China next month to meet with climate leaders there on a campaign to curb global warming. And a battery of state lawyers is preparing to battle any attempt by Washington to weaken California’s automobile pollution emission standards...

What does it say about the Trump administration that the president was fooled by a dumb, long-debunked climate myth?

Encourage action...

When talking with your kids about climate change, communicating “the sense that you can do something to improve a scary situation" is key, said Lisa Hoyos, director of Climate Parents, which has members in 50 states and advocates for clean energy and climate solutions, as well as climate change education in schools.

Palm oil is the second-most important oil in the modern consumer society, after petroleum. Producing it is a $50-billion-a-year business.

Over the years I have received many requests for vegetarian recipes from my readers. I was somewhat hesitant to write vegetarian recipes because I believe that Iranian cuisine is vegetarian friendly and has many vegetarian dishes. If you search my recipe index you'll see that there are many vegetarian options on my blog, such as the bean based dishes like Ash Reshteh, and the Seven-Bean Soup
