Prehistoric mammals caught on film roaming ancient ground of the Colorado Front Range.
Slightly southeast of Denver on the Colorado Front Range, the West Bijou Creek meanders through a 7600 acres located on the K-T Boundary. According to the National Park Service the site "contains some of the most scientifically important evidence associated with the Cretaceous-Paleogene (K-Pg) boundary [formerly known as the Cretaceous-Tertiary (K-T) boundary]. The K-Pg boundary at the West Bijou Site is unique due to its palynological extinction level, fern-spore spike, iridium anomaly and shocked quartz, Cretaceous and Paleogene (Tertiary) vertebrate fossils, magnetostratigraphy, and radiometric dating. Bisecting the site, West Bijou Creek, maintains a natural hydrologic pattern, flowing through a mosaic of upland and riparian shortgrass prairie plant communities, supporting a diversity of common and rare plant and wildlife species. West Bijou Site provides an excellent example of a valuable geologic resource located within a natural shortgrass prairie ecosystem."Read full story

“Why is farming important? Wow.” A new farming reality TV show hopes to address misinformation.
"Is farming important? Wow” says a farmer in the opening statement of a trailer for a new reality farming show. Indeed, wow. The fact that we need to ask that question, provides a startling image of the times we are living in. Listening exclusively to the propaganda of mainstream news institutions, many would actually believe that farming is what is killing our planet. In fact, the New York Times recently released a documentary entitled Meet the People Getting Paid to Kill Our Planet. The short opinion documentary grossly skewed the facts about farming while simultaneously promoting oil and gas companies as less harmful. The publication caters to a mass of 'city dwellers' but has also become a household name in news. Misinformation such as this is a contributing factor to what's killing our planet.Read full story
