Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.
Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.

Reblog if you actually owned a walkman at some point in time
Dude I was born in 1963. I’ve owned a portable mono record player that played 33s and 45s, and the little thingy that you had to put on the spindle to hold the 45 always got lost.
Test Your Vocabulary: how many words do you know?
Most Native English adult speakers who have taken the test fall in the range 20,000–35,000 words. And for foreign learners of English, we’ve found that the most common vocabulary size is from 2,500–9,000 words.
I scored 21,500 FUCK YES
30,700 words. Self education rules.
Maybe John Oliver has found his post–Daily Show niche: Explaining boring or uncomfortable subjects in a way that makes sense and makes you laugh.
This is so fucking good.
and this was the day that trolls saved the internet. Amen. I hope this idiocy will be stopped.
There are about 31,251 square miles of roads, parking lots, driveways, playgrounds, bike paths, and sidewalks in the lower 48 states. If Julie and Scott Brusaw have their way, they will all someday be replaced with solar panels.
For the better part of a decade, the Idaho couple has been working on prototyping an industrial-strength panel that could withstand the weight of even the largest trucks. They now appear to have cracked the formula, developing a specially textured glass coating for the panels that can not only bear tremendous loads but also support standard tire traction.
By their reckoning, at peak installation their panelized roads could produce more than three times the electricity consumed in the U.S.
The material could power electric vehicles through a receiver plate mounted beneath the vehicle and a transmitter plate is installed in the road.
THIS IS UNBELIEVABLY IMPORTANT AND UNBELIEVABLY DISAPPOINTING THAT IT’S GOTTEN SUCH LITTLE ATTENTION.
PEOPLE THINK ABOUT IT, JUST HOW MANY ROADS THERE ARE ALL OVER THE WORLD AND HOW MUCH ENERGY COULD BE PRODUCED USING THESE LIKE SERIOUSLY “THREE TIMES THE ELECTRICITY CONSUMED IN THE U.S”. IT’S NOT JUST GOING TO HELP REDUCE THE AMOUNTS OF GREEN HOUSE EMISSIONS, IT’S GOING TO CREATE JOBS IN THE COUNTRIES IT’S USED IN. IT HAS SO MUCH EXTRA STUFF IT’S UNBELIEVABLE HOW AMAZING THE ROAD COULD BE.
THESE PEOPLE ARE SAINTS, THEY’VE WORKED THEIR BUTTS OFF AND VOLUNTEERS HAVE WORKED JUST AS HARD TO GET TO THIS LEVEL BUT THEY STILL HAVE JUST UNDER $ 800,000 TO RAISE IN 15 DAYS.
THIS SORTA STUFF IS HOW WE’RE GOING TO CREATE A GREENER EARTH AND IT’S BEEN VIRTUALLY IGNORED BY TUMBLR. WE NEED TO SUPPORT THIS STUFF AND THESE SORTS OF PEOPLE WHO SELFLESSLY DEDICATE THEIR WORK TO CREATING A BETTER WORLD.
PLEASASASASASSSSSSEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE PEOPLE NEED TO SEE THIS.
For the life of me, I have no idea why this isn’t being broadcast on like every news station around the world.
ABC’s new show, Galavant, for those who can’t get past the region lock on Youtube
TRUST ME Y’ALL NEED TO SEE THIS
What the hell did I just watch?
what what what the fuck
WOW WHAT WHY HAVEN’T I HEARD ABOUT THIS??
Great Barrier Reef authorities have just said YES to coal port companies dumping dredge waste inside this World Heritage Area — all to make way a coal ship superhighway through our Reef. Reblog if this outrageous decision does not represent you. This is a massive disappointment, but we cannot give up hope. Sign up here to make our movement bigger than ever and keep up the fight to #SaveTheReef: http://www.SaveTheReef.org.au
Please Sign the petition guys. So many creatures will be decreased dramatically or even become endangered if we don’t stop it. Also watch the video. It really gave an insight into what would happen if this went ahead.
like dugongs. they’re mad important and live on the reef
Hey, so GetUp! is deciding to take legal action against this travesty, and you can donate to their kick starter here
The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority has caved to the pressure of the mining industry and the Federal Government. The agency charged with "the protection, wise use, understanding and enjoyment of the Great Barrier Reef in perpetuity" has allowed it to be sold out for short-term profits.
Late yesterday, they granted a permit to dump five million tonnes of dredge spoil inside the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.
This destructive project is now allowed to go-ahead - unless we make a last ditch effort to challenge it in court. Click here to learn more, and help fund the legal challenge to save our Reef:

WHY DOES THIS NOT HAVE MORE NOTES?? THIS IS SO IMPORTANT!!
SPREAD THE WORD! SAVE THE GREAT BARRIER REEF!
yo, guess what gang? if you’re not into donating money without any reward, have I got the album for you.
$1 a song, or $10 the album, all downloaded off bandcamp, moolah going direct to the reef fighting fund.
it’s got artists such as John Butler, Cat Empire, Missy Higgins, The Bamboos, etc. it’s pretty fucking sick, ay?
go check that shit out. save the reef and find a new aussie indie band or artist to adore
so shit’s just gotten worse
in addition to the coal port, now there’s a huge gas export terminal proposed for Abbot Point
so that’s happening. so we need more hands on deck because the government is not listening to us, so we need to make the noise just a teensy bit louder.
Fuckin greedy rich ass old people need to STOP
Donated. I can’t give much, but every bit counts.
