David vs. Goliath- David wins!


El Salvador


El Salvador throws Monsanto out of the country along with his seeds!!!

ElSalvador does it – the resistance of the farmers has triumphed over the big companies like Monsanto.
For the big corporations, the farmers from El Salvador must appear like little nuts, because they cannot be overpressed with anything.

Back in October 2014, we told network women that the US was putting pressure on El Salvador to buy GMO seed from Monsanto and threatened to cut its financial aid.

Unbelievable! State blackmail in favor of Monsanto!!

One of the United States conditions for approving nearly $ 300 million in aid was El Salvador’s commitment to buy genetically modified seeds from Monsanto, rather than non-GM seeds from local farmers.
But they did not all count on the obstinacy of these peasants. Especially in Africa, we are seeing how the industry is trying hard to grow GMOs in Africa.

The day of the dog


Hündin mit ihrem Welpe in Yulin_n

The little puppy was unlucky and was born in Yulin.
In slavery, hell, like his mother.
A cruel death awaits him, like his mother. Also on this day, also this year, the year of the dog in China.

Maybe he will not live anymore.
The World Dog Day was celebrated on October 10, 2018.

The day is a day of honor for the dog, who was always the most faithful companion of man.
But even these faithful pets are brutally destroyed if the human species decides that.

The plague on this planet: the human race.

My best regards, Venus

Factory Farts – And The Growing Number Of Storms Etc – Is There A Link ???

When he heard that methane was responsible for around 18% of the Greenhouse Effect, Ed decided to take action.

Farming livestock – cattle, sheep, goats, pigs and chickens – contributes around 6 billion tonnes of greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide) to the atmosphere each year. While estimates vary, this could represent up to 18% of global emissions.


How does livestock cause pollution?

And their wind and manure emit more than one third of emissions of another, methane, which warms the world 20 times faster than carbon dioxide. Livestock also produces more than 100 other polluting gases, including more than two-thirds of the world’s emissions of ammonia, one of the main causes of acid rain.

How does livestock contribute to greenhouse gases?

A cow does on overage release between 70 and 120 kg of Methane per year. Methane is a greenhouse gas like carbon dioxide (CO2). But the negative effect on the climate of Methane is 23 times higher than the effect of CO2. … Cattle-breeding is taking a major factor for these greenhouse gas emissions according to FAO.


How does animal manure pollute the air?

Stored for long periods of time in giant tanks or lagoons, the animal waste decomposes and pollutes the air with hundreds of different gases. … Hydrogen sulfide, methane, ammonia, and carbon dioxide are the major hazardous gases produced by decomposing manure.


How does meat production affect the environment?

Air pollution’s effect on human respiratory health. Meat production is one of the leading causes of greenhouse gas emissions and other particulate matter pollution in the atmosphere. … That prolonged exposure to airborne animal particulate, such as swine dust, induces a large influx of inflammatory cells into the airways …


Do cows pollute as much as cars?

A significant portion of these emissions come from methane, which, in terms of its contribution to global warming, is 23 times more powerful than carbon dioxide. … The world’s 1.5 billion cows and billions of other grazing animals emit dozens of polluting gases, including lots of methane.

How much pollution does factory farming produce?

Factory farms typically concentrate tens or hundreds of thousands of animals in one area, and a large operation can produce as much excrement as a small city. According to the EPA, “A single dairy cow produces about 120 pounds of wet manure per day, which is equivalent to the waste produced by 20–40 people.”

 cow fart 1

Do cows fart?

Much like humans, when they eat, gas builds up inside of their guts and has to be expelled. (See Why Beans Make You Fart) Cows fart and burp… a lot. The result is a large amount of methane being introduced into the atmosphere.

Target 2023: The European Parliament is pushing for a global ban on testing cosmetics on animals.



Target 2023: The European Parliament is pushing for a global ban on testing cosmetics on animals

With a non-binding resolution adopted by 620 votes in favour, 14 against and 18 abstentions, MEPs call on the European Union to launch a diplomatic campaign for a worldwide ban on testing cosmetics on animals by 2023.

Animal testing for cosmetics is already banned in the EU and now MEPs want the ban extended to the rest of the world.

On 16 November a conference will be held at the United Nations office in Geneva, organized by OIPA, LSCV (Swiss League Against Animal Testing and for animal protection) and ATRA (Swiss Association for the Abolition of Vivisection) under the topic “Animal Tests Ban for Cosmetics: Debate on a EP’s Resolution”. Many issues will be discussed during this meeting, among which the current situation for animal tests and the search for strategies to end cosmetics animal testing globally.CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP AND PARTICIPATE

The protection and welfare of animals is something that can be achieved through diplomacy too.

On 3 May, the European Parliament called for the EU to advocate a global ban “on animal testing for cosmetics and on international trade in cosmetic ingredients and products tested on animals”, and invited EU leaders to “use their diplomatic networks to build a coalition and to launch an international convention within the UN framework” in order to ban all animal testing for cosmetics before 2023.

However, this worldwide operation turns out not to be so easy: around 80% of countries worldwide still allow animal testing and the marketing of cosmetics tested on animals, including large producers such as China.

However, even Europe cannot be considered a safe place for lab rats. This is why the initiative also seeks to improve the effectiveness of the ban within the EU. In fact, MEPs note that there are loopholes in the EU system, as some cosmetic products are tested on animals outside the EU before being re-tested in the EU using alternative methods and placed on the EU market. They also point out another serious problem: most ingredients in cosmetic products are also used in many other products, such as pharmaceuticals, detergents or foods, and may therefore have been tested on animals under different laws.

The data collected since the entry into force of the EU ban in 2013 demonstrates that the ban has not prevented the EU cosmetics industry from thriving and providing around two million jobs, and being the world’s largest market in this sector. In short, MEPs say that, looking at the figures, these products can remain safe for our health while not causing falls of production and preserving the animals’ welfare.

Moreover, it has been demonstrated that Europeans care deeply about animal welfare. According to the Special Eurobarometer survey of March 2016 on Attitudes of Europeans towards animal welfare, 89% of EU citizens agree that the EU should do more to promote a greater awareness of the importance of animal welfare internationally and that it is important to establish high animal welfare standards recognized worldwide.

On 16 November 2018 the United Nations office in Geneva will host a conference organized by OIPA, LSCV and ATRA that will bring together experts in the field. This meeting aims at promoting practical strategies for a worldwide ban on animal testing in view of the future convention that the United Nations will, it is hoped, propose for subscription to non-UE states too.
