Goodnight #EarthDay with Black Marble Earth. The night side of our planet twinkles with light, and the first thing to stand out is the cities. "Nothing tells us more about the spread of humans across the Earth than city lights," asserts Chris Elvidge, a NOAA scientist who has studied them for 20 years. Thank you for sharing your #NoPlaceLikeHome photos and videos with us. We hope you enjoyed celebrating the beauty and wonder of our planet today! Image Credit

Photo by @edkashi/@viiphoto: Methane emissions, which can be largely attributed to the oil and gas industry, have a significant impact on global #climatechange. Nigeria’s oil industry emits tons of methane from gas flares, despite the fact that flaring has been illegal in #Nigeria since 1984. Flaring not only contributes to climate change and #globalwarming, but is also a waste of valuable resources. A recent article in the @nytimes states “the amount of methane that escaped worldwide in 2012 was roughly 2.6 billion cubic feet and would have been worth $30 billion on the market.” Despite its wealthy oil market, a large number of Nigerians live in poverty and without enough energy supply. Health problems caused by living amongst these pollutants is also a serious issue. In this 2004 photo local Urohobo people bake tapioca in the heat of a gas flare in the oil town of Afiesere, Niger Delta. Since 1961, when the Shell Petroleum Development Company first opened this flow station, residents of the local community have worked in this way. @everydayclimatechange

Christopher Marley struggled to balance his interest in taxidermy with his distaste for killing organisms. Now he turns reclaimed animals into art. View more from his forthcoming book, “Biophilia,” on newyorker.com.

L'enfant sauvage Nynne vit à Orø, une île de 14km2 au large d’Holbæk, à l’est du Danemark. Sa mère, institutrice, et son père, artisan chaumier, ont décidé de quitter la grande ville pour élever leurs enfants au plus près de la nature. Ils habitent une maison aux murs d’argile et toit de chaume. Cette photo a été prise par le photographe danois Lars Just : http://www.larsjust.dk/

Close your eyes and imagine walking knee deep through jade waters, an empty hammock fluttering in the distance, warm sunshine and just enough breeze that you don’t break a sweat—then lay back and wait for sunset. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for Spring!! iPhone photo by @kengeiger #holbox #mexico #instagood #picoftheday

Photo by @irablockphoto (Ira Block) A tranquil moment along the Siem Reap River near Angkor Thom in Cambodia. After a day of the crowds of tourists descending on the great temples in Siem Reap, finding this peaceful image was a nice ending to the chaos. @theimagereview @natgeo @natgeocreative #siemreap #cambodia #angkorthom #river #tranquil #boat #reflections #sonya7II
