wind energy; wind turbine, wind turbine generator; A wind turbine, or alternatively referred to as a wind energy converter, is a device that converts the wind's kinetic energy into electrical energy.Arrays of large turbines, known as wind farms, are becoming an increasingly important source of intermittent renewable energy and are used by many countries as part of a strategy to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels. One assessment claimed that, as of 2009, wind had the "lowest relative greenhouse gas emissions, the least water consumption demands and... the most favourable social impacts" compared to photovoltaic, hydro, geothermal, coal and gas. Loved by some, hated by some, clean energy but considered an eye sore, visual pollution, others claim they muddy the well water. Lake St. Clair; Canada, Ontario, WindPower48003z.tif

Canadian moonseed, Menispermum canadense, common moonseed, yellow parilla, moonseed, Menispermaceae; is a flowering plant in the family Menispermaceae, native to eastern North America, from southern Canada south to northern Florida, and from the Atlantic coast west to Manitoba and Texas. The seed inside the purple-black berries resembles a crescent moon, and is responsible for the common name. Both the leaves and fruit resemble those of grapes; confusion can be dangerous as Moonseed fruit is poisonous. All parts of these plants are known to be poisonous.[4] The principal toxin is the alkaloid dauricine.[5] The fruit of Canada Moonseed are poisonous and can be fatal. While foraging for wild grapes one should examine the seeds of the fruit to make sure one is not eating moonseeds: moonseeds have a single crescent-shaped seed, while grapes have round seeds. Differences in taste should also be an indicator of whether or not a specimen is grape or Moonseed, moonseeds have a taste that is described as "rank". The Cherokee used Moonseed as a laxative, and as a gynecological and venereal aid. The root was used for skin diseases. The Lenape used it in a salve for sores on the skin. It has been used for a variety of medicinal uses by Americans of European descent. (Wiki).

Interestingly, this plant contains the chemical dimethyltryptamine, a psychedelic. It is also used as traditional medicine among the Amazon people to treat aches and arthritis, infertility and impotency. The plant is pollinated by butterflies and hummingbirds.The flower is actually a pair of modified leaves,red lip-like bracts, that pout around the tiny star-like white to cream flowers. There are over 2,000 species of Psychotria. Rio Claro Reserve, Cabanas la Mulata, Colombia, South America; Hotlips102612.CR2

Silver-leaved Frailejones , Bello Grigio Espeletia, Senecio niveoaureus, also known as white arnica; Andes endemic paramo plant with large toilet paper white fuzzy leaves and yellow sunflower like flowers. The species, known as white arnica, comes from the páramo of Colombia and Ecuador, a high-altitude tundra zone found at about 10,000 to 15,000 feet (3100 to 4600 m) of altitude in the Andes, a climate where it is cold at night all year long and rarely more than chilly during the day. If the plant is completely covered with white hairs, that's partly to protect it from the cold, but also to filter out excess sunlight, because it usually grows above the clouds, fully exposed to harmful UV rays. Senecio with more than 1200 species, is one of the largest genera of flowering plants in the world.
