The Living Planet Report: Our Dinner Plates Are Destroying Life on Earth

I’m not really a WWF supporter ever since I saw this but nonetheless still vital information others need to know. The twitter page hasn’t been updated in over 2 years so not sure what happened but the content shared doesn’t make me feel too good about WWF.

Animalista Untamed

Now is the time to stop hiding our heads in the sand. Planet Earth is in a mess. And we, the human race, are entirely to blame.

This week the WWF published its Living Planet Report. It makes a chilling read.
“Populations of wild animals have plummeted 58 percent in the past four decades as humans have pushed them into ever-smaller habitats or killed them for food.”
“Global wildlife could plunge 67 per cent in the fifty-year period ending this decade as a result of human activities. The report shows how people are overpowering the planet for the first time in Earth’s history.”
Put it this way: there’s now only one third of the wildlife left that there was when a person now 50 was born.

How has it come to this desperate state of affairs? Sad to say, like this:

  • We have overfished the oceans
  • We have wiped…

Pollution and weather

Animals are dying all over the world in huge numbers because of the polluted seas and air. Millions of fish and massive numbers of various marine creatures are washing ashore dead. Birds are falling dead from the sky, and millions of poultry and wildlife are dying from avian flu. Land animals are also dying in large numbers from disease.

PanARMENIAN.Net – Peru’s environmental agency is investigating the deaths of some 10,000 frogs whose bodies have been found in a river in the south of the country. According to a BBC report, a campaign group says pollution in the River Coata is to blame for the deaths. It says the government has ignored pleas for the construction of a sewage treatment plant in the area.

The Titicaca water frog is an endangered species that is found only in the huge freshwater…

Before the Flood

Have you seen it? Let us know if the reviewer got it right:

Review: In ‘Before the Flood,’ Leonardo DiCaprio Sounds the Climate-Change Alarm

Even if you subscribe to the view that a problem isn’t a problem until a Hollywood celebrity tells you it is, “Before the Flood” feels out of phase. It’s a documentary in which Leonardo DiCaprio sounds the alarm about global warming, something that could not possibly have escaped anyone’s attention in recent years and is at this point probably beyond discussion: Either you think climate change is real or you don’t, and the battle lines aren’t likely to be shifted by an earnest movie star.

Eating You Alive

 

Half of all adults in the U.S. struggle with chronic health conditions including cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity, hypertension, Alzheimer’s, arthritis and erectile dysfunction.

Despite countless dollars spent on medical research, new drugs and innovative technology to improve our health, more Americans are disabled and dying from chronic disease than ever before.

Featuring leading medical experts and researchers, Eating You Alive takes a scientific look at the reasons we’re so sick, who’s responsible for feeding us the wrong information and how we can use whole-food, plant-based nutrition to take control of our health—one bite at a time.

Animals Are My Life

This post is in response to The Daily Post: Animal

Animals are my life, everything I do revolves around them – from what clothes and shoes I choose to wear, to what foods and candy I choose to eat, to what products I choose to use and to what events and activities I choose to attend or take part in.

No one is perfect but I am an aspiring vegan, vegetarian since 97; and animal rights activist as well as environmentalist since the early 90s. These are strong passions that I hold dear to my heart and of course that I live by.

I’m all about awareness, my goal is to put the word out there and make it known. Of course, I know that not all will share my views, but I at least need to make it known. There is also no chance for change, unless we know what is happening.

My website and blog focuses on animal rights, animal welfare and environmental issues; and provides those who give a damn, if you will, with a starting point for learning what the issues are and what they can do to help. We should have compassion and empathy for animals in need, especially victims of exploitation and oppression.

I also provide resources for adopting a pet or finding and/or reporting a lost pet as well as plant-based, cruelty-free products, domestic violence/pet resources and much more. 

There is so much animal suffering in the world I hope you will take some time to browse and see what piques your interest. If you can, pledge to take action to help curb the unnecessary suffering and help better the situation.

Our daily actions can make all the difference but they can also contribute to heinous and horrendous suffering; we should be aware of our impacts on other species we share the earth with.

Thank you for visiting, I can only hope that you find my website and blog helpful, useful and worth your time. If I can help in any way, just ask.

Pesticide Industry Secret Study Shows Neonics Kills Bees

Nwo Report

bees

Tests conducted by agrochemical giants Syngenta and Bayer showed that their own pesticides caused severe harm to bees.

Yet they kept their findings secret and did not make them public.

Documents obtained by Greenpeace reveal that the agrochemical industry has a disregard for the environmental and food security concerns, and that regulators are no help.

According to a UN study more than 40 percent of invertebrate species like bees and butterflies face extinction threats at the local level.

“If Bayer and Syngenta cared about the future of our pollinators, they would have made the findings public…It’s time for these companies to come clean”

Common Dreams reports:

Agrochemical giants Syngenta and Bayer discovered in their own tests that their pesticides caused severe harm to bees, according to unpublished documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by the environmental group Greenpeace.

The companies conducted the trials on products that…

Study Says Earth’s Wilderness Will Be Gone By 2100

Nwo Report

wilderness

The Earth’s wilderness areas will be completely eliminated by the year 2100, according to a disturbing new study.

Despite the importance of wilderness ecosystems on biodiversity, climate, food, shelter, medicine and other vital ecological and evolutionary processes, they are being destroyed at a dangerously rapid rate.

It takes 1,000 years to repopulate a newly planted forest with tree species and it took earth one million years to create a rainforest.

Scientists say that by the end of this century all life on the planet will be at risk of extinction as all wilderness land will be occupied by humans and their corporations.

According to a report by Underground Reporter:

A wilderness twice the size of Alaska has been demolished by modern day practices in less than two decades. That’s 3.3 million kilometers, or a tenth of the world’s entire uncultivated land — simply gone.

A new study published in the journal Current Biology suggests that by the…

Nothing Without Awareness

This post is in response to The Daily Post: Passionate

066222_4084649ec00d4937ba2841b634580aeb

There is nothing without awareness. No plan. No action. No chance for possible change.

My passion for living is my life-long goal until the day I die. I’m a social justice activist and work in my spare time to raise awareness for animal rights, animal welfare and environmental issues.

I got my start in the early 1990’s after reading a National Georgraphic magazine and learning about the plight of elephants killed for their ivory – little did I know that some 25+ years later we would still be waging the war against poachers to protect these magnificient and gentle giants. It is an absolute abomination.

There is so much wrong in the world and needless to say it hurts me so that’s why I do what I do – I want to help inspire others to do some good. There are so many in need of our compassion and empathy; I work to help restore compassion to our society. I say restore compassion because I see how our society is and how we operate – I used to be a part of it.

I’m not saying that people are necessarily uncaring – it could be that some, or the majority I should say, are just not aware? – or it may be that they just don’t care as much as I do — or at all about things that are dear to me and that I see as vital in getting the word out about for the sake of those whose lives hang in the balance.

Yes it is clear that I am fighting an uphill battle and overwhelm myself daily in the pain and oppression of other species but because I feel it is the right thing to do, nothing will stop me from trying to do what I can to help others become involved.

I know there are many who don’t want to hear what is wrong with how they are living and I can equally relate because I was once like that too. I was raised in a meat-eating family, I bought leather without thinking twice as well as products tested on animals and went for elephant rides, trips to the zoo and marine parks, etc.

One day, my eyes were open and I was floored. Who in their right mind would want to support such cruelty? From there I started making immediate changes where I could and for some years to come — I have never looked back. I am so thankful for finding the alternate path I did and would not change a thing had I to do it over again.

I have heard that it takes nothing away from someone to be kind to animals and this is so true. We have nothing to lose by living a compassionate lifestyle and by choosing to be aware of how our choices can affect others we share the world with.

I am not perfect – no one is – but anything that one can do to help alleviate suffering for the oppressed victims should be encouraged and this cannot be done without awareness. In order to help the situation, we need to know what is happening.

Along with addressing the pain for the oppressed victims, I also provide resources to help with pet care, pet adoption, shopping guide for alternatives and much more.

It may seem like it’s all bad news but this is not true. If I haven’t scared you off, I hope you’ll take a look around and see what I have to offer.

I provide the information. You choose to use it or not. It’s your choice.
