Quote of the Week

Animals are my friends... and I don't eat my friends. This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; (...) the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances... - George Bernard Shaw

AGRICULTURE'S GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS ON THE RISE 04/17/2014

New FAO estimates of greenhouse gas data show that emissions from agriculture, forestry and fisheries have nearly doubled over the past fifty years and could increase an additional 30 percent by 2050, without greater efforts to reduce them. This is the first time that FAO has released its own global estimates of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from agriculture, forestry and other land use (AFOLU), contributing to the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Agricultural emissions from crop and livestock production grew from 4.7 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2 eq) in 2001 to over 5.3 billion tonnes in 2011, a 14 percent increase.  The increase occurred mainly in developing countries, due to an expansion of total agricultural outputs. Nearly two-thirds of greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture are sourced to the livestock sector.

Activism

Animals deserve rights, regardless of how they taste or how convenient it is to experiment on them. Like humans, animals are capable of suffering and have an interest in leading their own lives. They are not ours to use for food, clothing, experimentation, or entertainment.

As an activist, you can educate people in your community and positively affect their attitudes and lifestyles. You just need the desire to generate positive change and to believe that your voice and actions matter...
