Nature still finding victories over humankind

Giant Ragweed

An article in yesterday's StarTribune, 'Superweeds' emerge to challenge farmers, noted how new large varieties of weeds are developing a resistance to traditional herbicides.

I discovered some super large ragweed along the shores of Bassett Creek Park yesterday.

Another article about the Ebola virus noted how we still haven't figured out a medical treatment for this deadly disease.

So it seems nature is still evolving and picking up a few wins against our best efforts to foil her.
