Quotes

Naoki Kunugita, department director of the National Institute of Public Health's Department of Environmental Health says, "You can't tell from the outside of the cigarette cartons about all the carcinogens inside. Low-nicotine cigarettes have carcinogens, just like other cigarettes."
..." The Daily Bucket - a ring of woodland microclimates —by OceanDiver : " April 2014. San Juan islands, Pacific Northwest . Last week I bushwacked through the woods to collect a sample of wetland water. We saw a variety of early spring microscopic life, as well as larval newts, insects and cattails. Today I'd like to take you on a walk through the woods all the way around that marsh, to show you how dramatically communities differ in response to their microclimates. Small changes in environmental conditions make a big difference in what plants are successful, which then shapes the rest of the community. Notably, nearly all the vegetation at this site is native. This coastal freshwater wetland and its surrounding woods has been used relatively lightly by people in comparison to the rest of the island, especially recently. It's a remote spot with difficult topography. Early on, Straits Salish Indians camped by the shore during the summers for fishing, clamming, hunting, and gathering plant foods such as cattails. During the later 19th century a settler fenced off the berm barrier between the beach and wetland for his house, barn and cow. A hundred years ago many trees were cut down when the whole county was logged for steamship fuel and the lime kilns. But this spot is a backwater on the island and uninhabited since farmer Merk left."
