Pagan News Beagle: Earthy Thursday, March 5

Looking for some earthy, natural remedies? We've got a bunch here at the Pagan News Beagle, including earth-born bacteria and air-cleaning vegetation. Plus, getting in touch with the wild and dealing with climate change.

Could the new antidepressant be found in the soil? According to Discover Magazine it just might: bacteria extracted from the soil and injected into the neural tissue of mice apparently increased their serotonin levels, a neurotransmitter associated with feelings of wellness and happiness.

Ever thought you need to be surrounded by more animals? Well apparently there are parts of Texas where goats actually outnumber people! Check out the story at Mother Nature Network.

Over in the Northeast states and Canada, wildlife activists are trying to bring wolves back into the wild. But they may need help from the government. Read more at The Adirondack Explorer.

Feeling like your air isn't as clean or pure as it could be? According to Simple Organic Life these 9 houseplants will clean your air right up and require only minimal care by their owners!

Lastly, is climate change getting you down? Apparently that might actually be a good thing. Read at The Conversation how the five stages of grief might help move action forward on fighting global warming.

Aryós Héngwis (or the more modest Héngwis for short) is a native of the Pontic-Caspian steppe, born some 5000 years ago, near the village of Dereivka. In his youth he stood out from the other snakes for his love of learning and culture, eventually coming into the service of the local reǵs before moving westward toward Europe. Most recently, Aryós Héngwis left his home to pursue a new life in America, where he has come under the employ of BBI Media as an internet watchdog (or watchsnake, if you will), ever poised to strike the unwary troll.
