From Link 12, a shocking amount of cattle burping up their Methane footprint
My chiroptobessive friend Emma sent me "a gorgeous bat to make you happy!" Most would think that it was a peculiar expression of condolence, but it's good with me. The bat-wrist is the knob halfway out along the fore-edge of  the wing. There are, just like us, five digits radiating from that stump: metacarpals [palm bones] and three phalanges [knuckle-bones]. Evo-devo is a curious mix of inertia and wild departure.
Further to link 13 above, my colleague David at The Institute alerted me to additional functionality at Windwatcher (where I get all my incommmming storm pictures]. Here's M2.5 particulates for 14 Jan 2020 at the height of the Australian bushfires in the News. [prevticulates] What is a huge <coff> <coff> problem in Melbourne is an everyday story of country folk choking in a miasma of cook-fires, coal-burning power-stations and badly-tuned diesel vehicles across swathes of India and China.
