Global Warming in South Carolina

Did you know that scientists think global warming will cause the sea level to rise almost 19 inches in my lifetime? That will cause a lot of beach erosion and a big change to the environment and animal life. Read here how it might change South Carolina.

They say many ducks could disappear from SC. It could also hurt brook trout, woodpeckers, pelicans, loggerhead sea turtles, and lots more.

I hope you'll think about what you can do to help stop global warming. And don't vote for anyone until you know if they will help or hurt the environment.

Teaching evolution in the schools?

Why not? Species on earth have changed over time. Here's an educational video that covers everything you need to know about evolution.

I read about Charles Darwin and his Voyage of the Beagle. A cool adventure.

Will We Save the Polar Bear?

The US government can't decide whether it wants to save the polar bear or not.
Scientists say polar bears will be extinct by 2050, mainly because of global warming. We can't wait. They should put it on the endangered species list now.
Click here and read about it.

Vote for Barack Obama or John McCain

I was born in Iowa, so I was happy to see Iowa support Barack Obama. In another posting I wrote why he would be the best president for the environment and endangered animals.

Barack Obama scored a 100 on the League of Conservation Voters Scorecard. We really need a president who cares about the earth and all the animals.

I hope everyone who cares about the environment and endangered animals will vote for Barack Obama. And it's not just because I shook his hand at the Oprah event, which you can see here.

If you're a Republican, you should know John McCain is the only candidate who says ANYTHING about the environment on his web site, so you should go for him.

Just don't vote for anyone until you know where they stand on global warming and endangered animals. OK?

Aquarium-Reptile Complex at Riverbanks Zoo

Here are a few of the animals at the Aquarium Reptile Complex at Riverbanks Zoo. It was built in 1989 and has many rare and endangered species.

Watch my video-- check out the diver in the Pacific Coral Reef tank. See the false gharial crocodile's sharp teeth. And the Moon Jellies are amazing. And look at the Shortnose Sturgeon. They are native to South Carolina and are endangered.
