This is a photo gallery of Antarctica, data and maps of Antarctica, and the Aurora Australis, which sits in front of the Milky Way galaxy, as seen from the crisp, clean air of the frozen deserts of the Antarctican winter.
As we in the Northern Hemisphere of Earth roast in the June summer’s searing heat; we spend time recovering from the Sunlight, go swimming, windows down, sunscreen and fresh cut grass, warm weather life – all while Antarctica endures the longest, most bitterly cold winter inside of the orbit of the planet Mars.
Hello, my name is Carl Rittenhouse Larson, but that’s just a name that was given to me, I’ve been dissolving my ego lately, and it’s either gone or I can’t tell it’s there. A person’s name is part of the ego. I am the universe. The universe is Carl.
Why should you listen to me?
Today is November 13, my birthday, it is the new moon, it is a supermoon (meaning that the moon is at perigee, the absolute closest it gets to Earth) and there is an eclipse of the Sun streaking across the south Pacific all day. My birthday only. My Sun sign is Scorpio, which is powerful, and my Moon sign is Aries, which is philosophical and of the mind. Together, they are focused, and today, as truly as the tides swell and contort, these attributes are me, now.

In September of this year, Nicholas Kristof sat down with Iran’s President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The interview has a startling excerpt:
N.K.: So I just want to make sure I understand the outline of that deal. If western countries provided 20 percent enriched fuel for the Tehran reactor, then Iran would stop all further enrichment. Is that correct?
M.A.: Yes, yes, we’ve said this before. We’ve said this many times. This is nothing new.

October 31, 2011 – Carl Larson
We’ve just finished the warmest decade in history. The 25 warmest years ever recorded have occurred after 1980. The 10 warmest years have come since 1996. 2009 was the second warmest year ever recorded. The Earth is warming – faster and faster.
Climates are changing in new ways. This isn’t politics, dogma or ideology, it’s just fact. Satellites in orbit around our planet have brought us this information, and these satellites have as many hidden agendas as a salad fork.
