Ask Your U.S. Legislators to Oppose Cruel ‘SHARE Act’! | Action Alerts | Actions | PETA. – This is an important petition. The so-called SHARE Act is the worst bill I have ever heard of. It panders to everyone who either hunts or makes money off animals. It actually forces wildlife managers to put hunting and business decisions above all others. This irresponsible garbage shows what happens when Republican’s gain control of Congress. We must put as much heat as possible on the scum who support this travesty. It is imperative that it be stopped.
Oil companies just will not stop drilling in the Arctic, or anywhere else for that matter. Shell ships are heading to pristine areas of the Arctic as I write this. They must be stopped. Environmental degradation and green house gas emission for profit must end.
Landmark Study: Human Population Growth, Consumption Has Increased Species Extinctions by More Than 1,000 Times Natural Rate. – Here is a study that confirms once again the damage we humans are doing to the environment. That we continue at such a rate is bewildering and will be astonishing for future generations. Much of the problem is that we are being held back by a large, well-funded minority of religious fundamentalist and free-market (itself a kind of religion) enthusiasts in almost unfathomably deep denial of science. The consequences will be dire if we do not break through the political, social,and intellectual wall they put up. Two recent rays of hope are president Obama’s new carbon emission reduction initiative and the fact that Neil DeGrasse Tyson,with his “Comos” remake, has both groups of these people running scared.
Senate Expected to Vote on Wind Energy Policy: Speak Up Today!. We must save tax credits for renewable anergy. Global warming denial has blocked efforts to control carbon dioxide emissions. The exanpansion so wind energy and solar energy is therefore our best hope at present to fight climate change.
