This is an amazing video! I wonder, was mom helping them to hatch out by moving the eggs around? It is always interesting to see the birth of different species.

I agree with you, the point is not who's at fault but what actions can we take to reverse the negative effects on the environment, which affects our health. The unfortunate scenario of human dependence on non-renewable resources is the a major issue that requires a considerable amount of change. The financial stability of both local and global economies dwindle because of this dependence. Some depict an extreme view of economic disaster and doom when these resources are depleted; it is not an overnight impending doom but a situation that it is happening slowly as we speak. Finger pointing and blame is not going to resolve this issue. Until governments, policy makers, corporations, and individual consumers ALL realize that their current financial dependency will eventually come to an end when non-renewable resources are depleted, there is no true solution to the equation. There are other ways of producing energy, as you mentioned, and there are so many alternative renewable resources that can replace current lifestyles, practices, products, and manufacturing procedures. This is called sustainability - until human production, consumption and dependency reaches this stage, there will be no solutions.

If Florida legislature thinks it can "save budget dollars" by cutting back on environmental regulations, THEY need more education than most citizens! Obviously the BP spill shows what happens when irresponsible corporations and businesses pollute the environment - no tourists to support the tourism dependent state. Less or no environmental regulation, I can see the Ads 10 years from now: "Visit Florida! Former home of the Everglades, fossil fuel rich land and endless sunshine. Vacation responsibly - don't drink the water!" Long-term consequences of deregulation WILL lead to more extinct species in plants and animals, increased polluted areas including farm lands and fresh drinking water supplies, which are already declining at a rapid rate, and the deterioration of tourism sites that provide most of Florida's profitable income. Who's thinking about Florida's future? Not the legislature or politicians!
