Here is the fascinating story of St Kilda, a small rocky island in the Outer Hebrides, which had to be abandoned after centuries of habitation, mostly because of the deteriorating living conditions and extreme isolation from the rest of Scotland. It is a unique case where the local population voluntarily requested relocation from the mainland authorities. Now the island is a protected natural area.

Humans May Have Tipped The Planet Into A New Geological Age

Geologically speaking, we are currently living in the Holocene — an epoch that began with the end of the last ice age nearly 12,000 years ago. However, a team of scientists now posits that the impact of our species should be considered significant enough to merit categorizing the age we live in as a separate epoch — the Anthropocene.

Pippin: I didn't think it would end this way.
Gandalf: End? No. Our journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path. One that we all must take. The grey rain curtains of this World rolls back. And all turns to silver glass.... And then you see it...
Pippin: See what? Gandalf? See what?
Gandalf: White shores... And beyond it. A far green country under a swift sunrise.
Pippin: Well that isn't so bad.
Gandalf: No. No it isn't.
