What’s Wrong with Wind Power? Everything is Wrong with Wind Power

STOP THESE THINGS

Much to the horror of the wind industry, its parasites and spruikers – and the dismay of the clowns that pretend to govern us – slowly, but surely, the facts are getting out: these things don’t work; on any level.

Piecing it together, in fine and erudite style, this time it’s Sherri Lange from the North American Platform Against Wind Power, dishing it up to some North American notables. Over to Sherri.

Petition update
Help us bring justice to 200 killed geese
Global Conservation Group

Jun 30, 2016 — This week, we asked you to take action with us to urge a Wisconsin city not to kill 200 geese.

This morning, hundreds of babies saw their mothers brutally killed right in front of their eyes. Their lifelong mates saw their partners brutally killed right in front of their eyes. All because some in the city deemed them a “nuisance.”

We are very disappointed in Oconto Falls city officials for moving forward with the unnecessary brutal killing of 200 geese this morning. They knew we wanted to meet with them at 1:00pm to discuss the matter in person, however they decided it was best to kill the animals before our staffers made the three hour drive to their city. In addition, city officials received thousands of phone calls and emails this week politely urging them to explore more humane methods. Rather than listening to them, they actually hung up on our phone calls. Our organization even offered to cover all expenses for any humane options if the killing was called off.

In an effort to make it clear that these actions will not be tolerated, Global Conservation Group just approved the most aggressive campaign in our history against the City of Oconto Falls. We will boycott the city, place advertisement campaigns all around the country, and file hundreds of FOIA (open records requests) to look through all the city’s emails, phone logs, council meeting transcripts and more to determine if they had a financial incentive to kill all these innocent animals. After all that, we will file lawsuits, issue national press releases, and file criminal complaints against those who allowed the killing to move forward despite steep opposition from the community and the world.

Help fund our campaign and investigation. Please consider making a contribution to ensure this brutal slaughter never happens to another group of animals again. Please chip in here: https://www.gofundme.com/savewigeese

Sincerely,

Jordan W. Turner
President

SICKENING; Animal Abuser Left Puppy In A Paper Bag In Empire Damansara Carpark With Broken Legs And Mouth Taped

STOP ANIMAL ABUSE

“I am appalled, sickend & saddened that someone could do this to such a tiny 3 month old dog. What kind of sick psycho, capable of doing such an evil thing, can manage to walk amongst us; undetected?? This poor little puppy couldn’t hurt a fly it’s so small. The bloody Empire Damansara should be willing to hand over CCTV of the car park where the dog was found! In fact, you would think they would find this such an atrocity that they would be offering any help they can; but they don’t seem to give a rats ass about it! I’m just thankful that an animal lover found this tiny pooch & took action. Please go to the Face Book page below to show your support & help catch the abomination that tortured this tiny dog!”

Petition Update: SAVE MARLEY AND END B.S.L!!!!

 

 

pit-bull-by-viganhadjari-300x199

WE DID IT
Yayyyyyy!!!! Marley will be coming home as soon as we can get her there! She should NEVER have been seized in the first place!! Thank you so much for signing and showing support to Lauren and her family xxxx
SAVE MARLEY AND END B.S.L!!!!

                                                                        A BIG THANK YOU !!!    

On the 18th December 2015, our beautiful girl Marley was seized by police because of her breed. She was wrongfully ripped from our family home and taken to a kennel in which we are not allowed to visit. Marley is a friendly dog and has never shown any sort of aggression. Please ask DEFRA the ineffective legislation that led to Marley being seized, and please ask Derby law court to ask with responsibility and compassion when deciding the future of this beloved, gentle family pet.

Marley is a family dog and we have had her since she was 7 weeks old! She adores my 3 year old daughter and we are lost without her. The police have said that because I have a young child we probably won’t get her back because of her breed, whereas the sergeant in charge has said different, so we aren’t even clear what will happen.

Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) was rushed through as part of the 1991 Dangerous Dogs Act. It was a simplistic response to the public mood at the time, and it legislates against certain dog types rather than tackling effective dog rearing and ownership or considering the temperament of individual animals. Evaluations have found it to be ineffective in the Netherlands, Denmark and Spain.

Editorial Article and Special Report with a Poll by Jim Lantern, 5:00pm CT Tuesday 28 June 2016

BREAKING NEWS: As I’ve been working on this special posting, CNN (and the others) are reporting a major terrorist attack on an airport in Istanbul Turkey – so far reporting 28 dead 60 injured. Make no mistake about it: Terrorists are Globalists (like ISIS of radical Islam who want to control the world) – but not all Globalists are terrorists. There are some good Globalists – and among them are some science fiction authors as well as sone scientists. This is now Terror Tuesday. Even so, on with this special report, a bit long (as usual), and I promise you some of it will be like a Fun Friday!

First a few definitions, and then the poll…

  • Nationalist: “A person who advocates political independence for a country. Of or relating to nationalists or nationalism.”

Obama Signs Groundbreaking Animal Testing Law | VegNews

Life or Lunch?

President passes unprecedented amendment drafted by vegan senator Cory Booker.

President Barack Obama signed a new law last week that will set unprecedented protections for animals by restricting animal testing and requiring regulators to develop new technology-based alternatives. The Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act updates the 40-year-old Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976, forces non-animal tests to be used whenever possible, and establishes a precedent for the developing of animal-free testing, such as in vitro and in silico methods. “The Lautenberg Act is a meaningful step forward for public safety because it promotes superior, human-relevant chemical test methods over slow, costly and unreliable tests on animals,” Kristie Sullivan, MPH, vice president of toxicology for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, said. Eighty-nine-year-old New Jersey Senator Frank Lautenberg had begun efforts to overhaul the “deeply flawed” 1976 Toxic Substances Control Act but passed away in…

6 Dog-Safe Plants That Naturally Repel Mosquitoes (& Other Pests) | eBay

image

For many pet parents, warm weather is a welcomed treat. We get to spend more time outdoors with our four-legged companions, enjoying the sunshine and participating in fun outside activities. That is, until we hear that all too familiar buzz of the dreaded mosquito.

Not only are these pesky, winged biters annoying, they can lead to a slew of complications ranging from itchy bites and hot spots, to heartworm disease and West Nile Virus, and more. What’s All The Buzz About Mosquitoes & Dogs? Check out this guide to learn more.

Unfortunately, many of the effective pesticides and mosquito repellents we use to protect ourselves are highly toxic, even deadly, to our furriest family members. Luckily, it’s easy to safely and naturally repel mosquitoes from your yard with a little creative landscaping using these 6 dog-safe plants that naturally repel mosquitoes – and other pests, too!

image

Basil (Ocimum basilicum)
This hardy, easy-to-grow plant is more than just a tasty addition to your favorite recipes – it naturally deters mosquitoes, too! Unlike most other insect-repelling herbs, basil doesn’t have to be crushed or ground in order to release the scent and oils that keep mosquitoes at bay. There are a wide variety of basil plants, all of which provide some relief from the flying pests, but lemon basil and cinnamon basil are the most effective. Bonus: basil plants naturally repel house flies, too!

image

Catnip (Nepeta cataria)
We all know cats (and some dogs!) love catnip. But, mosquitoes absolutely hate it! Some studies have actually shown catnip plants to be several times more effective at repelling mosquitoes than DEET, a potentially dangerous chemical used in many bug repellents. Catnip is easy to grow and can be planted in pots strategically placed around the yard and seating areas to keep bugs at bay. Just remember, while you’re repelling mosquitoes, you might be attracting the neighborhood cats…

image

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
In addition to being a beautiful, colorful, and fragrant addition to your garden, mosquitoes despise the calming, fresh scent of lavender. Lavender can be planted in your garden, right in the ground, or grown in pots on your deck, porch, or windowsill, both indoors and out for a splash of color, a fresh, calming fragrance, and to keep those tiny vampires away from you and your pets.

image

Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis)
Lemon Balm, also known as horsemint, is another hardy, easy-to-grow plant that naturally repels mosquitoes. Thriving well in both sunny spots or in the shade, this plant gives off a strong scent similar to citronella that mosquitoes despise. Grow it in a pot and place in the center of your patio table, beside entryways, or around the yard to keep the area clear of mosquitoes. And, best of all, while mosquitoes can’t stand Lemon balm, bees and butterflies don’t mind it at all!

image

Peppermint (Mentha piperita)
Because of its strong, minty aroma, many insects, including mosquitoes, steer clear of peppermint plants. However, because these plants tend to grow aggressively, you may prefer planting them in pots and strategically placing them around sitting areas, on windowsills, and near entryways, rather than planting in the ground. Plus, while they’re non-toxic to dogs, many enjoy the taste and smell and will nibble or roll around in them, killing the plant. Bonus: Use the leaves to add flavor to teas and other delicious minty recipes!

image

Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis)
Another pet-safe option for naturally repelling fleas, that’s also useful in the kitchen, is rosemary. Unpleasant to both mosquitoes and other flying insects, rosemary is quite versatile. Plant in pots, protect your herb garden from insects, or use around the perimeter of your yard to keep insects away while at the same time attracting butterflies.
Plants to avoid:
The plants listed above aren’t the only ones that naturally repel mosquitoes – but they ARE both effective against insects AND safe for dogs. Always remember when designing your garden to be mindful of plants which may be toxic for your fur-family. Citronella, while highly effective against mosquitoes, is deadly to dogs, as are Geraniums, certain varieties of Marigolds, and Garlic plants.

Why your poison ivy allergy is about to get worse | Grist

image

Summer: It’s the perfect time of year to get outside and enjoy some of that wilderness the U.S. is so famous for. The perfect time of year, that is, except for a glossy three-leaved plant that will turn your skin into an itchy, bubbling mess.

Poison ivy, already everyone’s least favorite part of summer, is only going to get worse with climate change. As The San Luis Obispo Tribune points out, plants in the Toxicodendron family (including poison ivy, oak, and sumac) produce more urushiol oil — the stuff that makes you itch — as levels of carbon dioxide rise. A six-year study published by Duke University researchers in 2006 found that projected CO2 for 2050 will cause as much as a 30 percent increase in urushiol toxicity. Not only do the plants produce oil that’s more toxic, but they grow more leaves.

Over 80 percent of adults break out into nasty rashes when they come into contact with those leaves. Ain’t nature wonderful?

Perhaps there’s a silver lining: If worsening heat waves, drought, storms, and wildfires aren’t enough to make us give a crap about climate change, maybe that rash all over our beach bods will.

Urgent: Help us save 200 geese before a Wis. city kills them!

Jun 27, 2016 — The City of Oconto Falls, Wisconsin plans to brutally slaughter 200 “nuisance” geese this Thursday. Non-lethal remedies are more effective, less costly, and better for everyone involved. However, the city simply refuses to consider or explore other methods.

Canadian Geese mate for life, which makes killing them all the more cruel. Please stand with Global Conservation Group to peacefully protest the city’s deplorable plans. All materials will be supplied.

Please also politely contact the following city officials urging them to cancel the slaughter in favor of more effective, non-lethal solutions:

Perdue Announces Groundbreaking Policy to Improve Lives of 680 Million Chickens
Mercy For Animals

Jun 27, 2016 — Thanks to you and the nearly 182,000 others who signed this petition, today, Perdue Foods, one of the nation’s largest poultry producers, is announcing a precedent-setting commitment to improving animal welfare.

While there is still work to be done, Perdue’s commitment is the most comprehensive animal welfare policy ever adopted by a major chicken producer. Of the more than 8 billion chickens killed for meat annually in the U.S., Perdue’s policy will reduce the suffering of nearly 680 million birds on 2,200 farms.

Citing the “five freedoms,” a set of ethical imperatives for farmed animal welfare, the policy outlines the company’s efforts to implement on-farm improvements, such as environmental enrichment and natural light; curb malicious abuse; and eliminate cruel live-shackle slaughter.

Perdue also addresses the unnaturally rapid growth rates of chickens, which cause incredible suffering to birds—crippling them under their own weight, rendering them immobile, leaving them in constant pain, and causing many to die of organ failure. Additionally, the policy mandates annual third-party audits and increased video surveillance—including of transport areas—to deter instances of illegal animal abuse.

Most notable is the policy’s commitment to replacing live-shackle slaughter methods with less cruel Controlled Atmosphere Stunning, a move that will spare millions of birds from the horrific suffering caused by dumping, shackling, shocking, and slitting the throats of conscious animals. This change is even more meaningful given that chickens, who comprise 95 percent of land animals raised and killed for food in the U.S., are excluded from the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act.

With this announcement, it’s never been clearer that the days are numbered for many of the poultry industry’s cruelest practices. Perdue’s policy represents important progress and we look forward to seeing the company establish deadlines for the implementation of these crucial changes. Perdue’s policy will also hopefully inspire other companies to adopt similar meaningful animal welfare requirements.

It’s now time for Tyson, Foster Farms, and other poultry producers to stop dragging their feet and reduce the needless pain and suffering animals endure on factory farms and in slaughterhouses.
