The Allure of Waterfalls

The Allure of Waterfalls by John Haywood “Everyone loves waterfalls!” Something I hear so often when talking with people I meet. What is it about these natural wonders that people find so appealing? For most, it’s the waterfalls themselves. From the small cascades found at roadside to the thunderous behemoths like Niagara Falls, there are virtually endless variations for everyone’s enjoyment.

The Anthropocene, Altruism And A Waterfaller

You don’t have to agree with all the climate data presented in this Ted Talk, but the facts about human nature and the unmistakable power of human kindness cannot be ignored.
