Zapfish appear similar to an Anglerfish or Catfish, and a light bulb's filament. They seem to have a large head with two small eyes, two nostrils, and a big pair of orange lips. Below the head is a smaller body.
Since time immemorial, a rare type of electric catfish known as the Zapfish has been prized by Inkling society as a source of energy. In fact, the entire city of Inkopolis is powered by a single 100-year-old Great Zapfish.
Is Earth getting closer to Planet of the Apes?
Monkey embryos containing human cells have been made in a laboratory, a study has confirmed.
The research, by a US-Chinese team, has sparked fresh debate into the ethics of such experiments.
The scientists injected human stem cells - cells that have the ability to develop into many different body tissues - into macaque embryos.
The developing embryos were studied for up to 20 days.
Other so-called mixed-species embryos, or chimeras, have been produced in the past, with human cells implanted into sheep and pig embryos.
The scientists were led by Prof Juan Carlos Izpisua Belmonte of the Salk Institute in the US, who, in 2017, helped make the first human-pig hybrid.
Happy Earth Day! :)
Hmm. These chimeras are made by some of the most intelligent people imaginable and a man helped to make a human pig hybrid? Perhaps I could develop certain hybrids someday...

The Colonial Pipeline shutdown may aid the American shift to electric vehicles. We can only hope. Thankfully, President Biden had already made the Keystone XL Pipeline impervious to sabotage!

Thank you! Also, if any of your embassy relations are Eco-Friendly, please tell them of our region! We seem to have difficulty attraction other environmentalists.

The destruction of nature by human technology continues.
A generation of endangered birds has been destroyed.
Every April, thousands of elegant terns migrating from Central and South America nest in the sands of the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve, one of the last remaining protected coastal wetlands in Southern California.
This year, however, their refuge was no sanctuary. On May 13, a drone crash-landed on their nesting ground, scaring off about 2,500 of the terns. Left behind were about 1,500 eggs, none of which were viable after they were abandoned.
ďIn my 20 years of working with wildlife and in the field, I have never seen such devastation,Ē said Melissa Loebl, an environmental scientist and manager of the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve.

Yes, modern Human activity is very bad for the environment. The leaching waste dumps, plastic in the oceans, greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, Highway construction which destroys the migration paths, clear cutting of the Rainforests, extinction of plants and animals, all result from Human activity. But nature is fighting back with Ebola, SARS, and COVID-19. Sadly, the natural defenses may not be enough. The selfsame Humans must stop the destruction of our Planet before it is too late.
It's easy to say that but the sad truth is we can't really go back now. Our lifestyle depends on ruining the planet. It's like capitalism. Our only hope is colonizing other planets before it is too late.
In that case, it is probably already too late. The developing nations are willing to sacrifice the environment for rapid economic growth. The developed nations are focused upon social programs and improving the quality of life for the less fortunate of society. Only a few rich visionaries are advancing human spaceflight, and when they die the public interest will doubtlessly disappear.
(This is a lovely region you have here!)
I agree with William's points here. A lot of modern human activity and modern culture is ruining the planet. However, I don't think the common citizen is to blame. Why should the poor pay for yet another environmental tax while rich people are still polluting the Earth just to make a few extra cash without almost any opposition? While fusion energy etc. should be investigated much more deeply, I believe we should focus on veeery heavy environmental regulations and raising the taxes on the rich.
Also, colonizing other planets will mostly probably not happen in the next 50 or so years in my opinion.
If you can terraform Mars, why can't you save the Earth?
Space exploration is awesome though 🌀 so is Earth
Well, the Terra-forming of Mars is not a certainty. And the greedy desire of humans to exploit nature seems to be boundless. Earth may be uninhabitable long before Mars could ever be transformed.
Mars transformation is still, at the very least, decades away. Our current problems here in our little blue dot are more important than chasing distant planets.
