UPDATE: JACKIE covered in snow! Everything Goes On Sunday: Exciting Bald Eagle Couple With 2 Eggs LIVE CAM

UPDATE: JACKIE covered in snow! Click on the LIVE CAM below.

She will be ok though. The moderators say that bald eagles are built to stand this kind of climate and still keep the eggs pretty warm and with no hatching complications. Stay tuned! HATCHING is expected next March 15th, next Monday!

Everything goes on Sunday presents you these two wonderful endangered bird species that have been nesting 2 eggs for the last 30 days, and they are only 8 days from hatching.

This is a LIVE CAM that focusses on the Bald Eagle couple and their nest with eggs. Day and night, Jackie and Shadow, female and male eagles respectively, sit on the eggs in the nest that they built on a branch of a pine tree , 144 feet high!

When I look at the nest I ask myself: how did they do it? Such a resistant nest resting on branches of a tree, and so high? It is a work of art, wisdom and bravery. I am sure you can add more in the comment section.

They are so loving to each other, to their habitat, to their soon to hatch eggs…it is wonderful to watch them live!

Shadow delivers a delicious fish to Jackie everyday… Yummy!

Climate change is undeniable. There are natural cycles of the Earth’s climate that can be affected by natural factors that are external to the climate system, such as changes in volcanic activity, solar output, and the Earth’s orbit around the Sun.

However, we humans, also are increasingly influencing the climate and the earth’s temperature by burning fossil fuels, cutting down rainforests. Big companies like China Coal, Rio Tinto, ExxonMobil, Shell, British Petroleum, Chevron, Saudi Arabian Oil, Russia Coal, Coal India, are identified as among the highest offenders since 1988.

Nature is the highest law in every country. You will never be able to live above the laws of nature. That means we should learn those laws and abide by them. Many of these laws involve general respect for the living things around us, including animals, insects, plants, ourselves humans, water, air,

There has always been a debate on whether or not these natural occurrences are just an example of mother nature and her cycles of extreme weather, or rather a result of the human race contributing to an altered climate with more extreme phenomena.

Researchers and scientists have always attributed some blame towards human existence having an impact, however, a constant barrage of new data consistently indicates it is very much up to “us” to take back “some” of the control from mother nature.

Steven Hawking explains HERE how our planet is at risk of resulting in a similar atmosphere of Venus, which is made up of a super-heated supercritical fluid under immense pressure near the surface, making the planet inhabitable due to runaway greenhouse warming.

A clear warning sign and a notable threat if we refuse to consider the carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas levels in our home planet’s atmosphere.
