In the world of animal agriculture, pigs, cows, and chickens are all turned into “things,” regarded as commodities for the sake of our profit. In order to justify treating animals in this manner, the people who “own” them have to mentally distance themselves from their actions and from the personalities and needs of the animals as well. But that’s not to say that some farmers don’t “wake up” and recognize that the animals they work with are someones, not somethings.
Take this former pig farmer, for example. After working with pigs for most of his career, a “lightbulb” went off and he came to realize that what he was doing to his pigs didn’t seem right. He then gave up pig farming and went vegetarian. In this video, the farmer transports two of his pigs, Roxy and Gus, to live in their new forever home at Farm Sanctuary

‘A range of scientific studies at Fukushima have begun to reveal the impact on the natural world from the radiation leaks at the power station in Japan caused by an earthquake and tsunami in 2011. Biological samples were obtained only after extensive delays following the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear power plant meltdown, limiting the information which could be gained about the impact of that disaster. Scientists, determined not to repeat the shortcomings of the Chernobyl studies, began gathering biological information only a few months after the meltdown of the Daiichi power plant in 2011.
Results of these studies are now beginning to reveal serious biological effects of the Fukushima radiation on non-human organisms ranging from plants to butterflies to birds. A series of articles summarising these studies has now been published in the Journal of Heredity. These describe widespread impacts, ranging from population declines to genetic damage to…

A couple of notes about these clips, which are taken from security camera footage at the Memphis pound via FOIA request: Everything seen below has been previously posted over the weekend. I haven’t yet reviewed any additional footage. What I did was splice together the clips in sequential order to show one adult dog and one puppy from the time they are taken off the ACO truck until they are forced into cages at MAS. Alert readers will notice that the times don’t match up exactly however it seems clear to me that the clips are of the same ACO, the same dog and in the only order that makes sense. As such, I believe the timestamps are slightly off. If you see anything different, please let me know.
For anyone who hasn’t already viewed these clips as they were previously posted (in bits, as I came across them), please…

There you are planning a summer trip for your family, looking for great places to enjoy nature and let your children see wildlife in their natural habitat. And then comes the sad awakening: you see hunters wandering through the “refuge” looking for one “great shot”. What do you do? Speak up:
“Wildlife refuges are far from the safe haven the name would imply. In reality, the majority of the 561 publicly owned US wildlife refuges allow hunting and fishing – some even allow trapping. The San Diego National Wildlife Refuge is one of the few remaining refuges where hunting is not allowed. However, the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), which manages refuges, wants to change that and has proposed opening up part of the Otay Mesa and Lakes area inside the San Diego National Wildlife Refuge to allow hunting of wildlife, including deer, rabbits…

On July 4, President Obama gave permission for wind farms to kill the national bird.
Solar is just as bad, or worse
Environmental organizations have permitted their mindless fear about CO2, to completely corrupt their core principles.
