Academic papers are written by human beings who want their work to be read; and these people actually pay to be published in those journals. the journals do not pay them. And all journal licensing deals stipulate that the original author retains the right to share their own research.
So 99% of the time if you email the author of an academic paper and ask for the PDF, they will gladly and excitedly give it to you for free over email.
I uh, I just went ahead and Finished This. I'm not sure how that happened. I'm going to give full credit to Mint being a lot of fun to draw.

I created #FediWorlds because the one thing I really miss from other sites is the #Writing games and questions/prompts, and the way they can help bring together a community.
So all of my #Writing, #Worldbuilding, #Conlang, #AmWriting, #WritingCommunity friends - whether or not you participate (Either is cool), please boost!
Cheers; I look forward to all of your lovely writing.
(And if anyone wants to start a weekly prompt challenge, I'd love to participate~~)

Mires, mostly bogs and fens, store around 30% of Earth’s land-based carbon. Wetlands are important carbon sinks for climate action and conservation.
I want to breed shiny beetles so I can kill them and put them in little picture frames.
It's kinda morbid, but they are so pretty.
*considers* I don't feel like that about birds, so maybe I have more empathy or something for them? On the other hand, birds already shed feathers, so there's something pretty to keep without doing them any harm.
