Okay, consider this:

Vegans have absolutely no reason to lie to you about conditions of meat, dairy, and egg farms. By exposing those industries, they do not personally gain anything. But the government has billions of dollars riding on animal agriculture.

Think long and hard about that before you accuse vegans of propaganda and brainwashing.

Found on Do As One. Although many have not heard of him, Nikola Tesla invented many, if not most, of the electric and electronic technology that we use today. After demonstrating that electricity could be generated and transmitted for next to no cost, without burning fuels, JP Morgan withdrew his funding, and the mass media began a campaign to smear Tesla and label him as crazy. Since then he has been all but written out of history. Google him.

Feds’ report on deforestation by oil, gas industry not out until after next election

The latest government information about the scope of deforestation by Canada’s oil and gas industry—predominantly the Boreal Plain forest destroyed by Alberta oilsands mining and production—will not be published until a year after the next federal election, according to information from the federal Natural Resources department.

Even then, when the next national breakdown of deforestation by industry is published in the 2016 annual report to Parliament on the State of Canada’s Forests, the new data will cover only 2011 and 2012.

The latest State of Canada’s Forests report, tabled in the House of Commons by Natural Resources Minister Greg Rickford (Kenora, Ont.) on Sept. 24, disclosed that the oil and gas industry was the only sector that showed a trend of increased deforestation up to the year 2010, with 11,100 hectares destroyed that year compared to 400 hectares in 1990.

The oil and gas industry deforestation, while small compared to the natural destruction of the northern boreal forest by fire and mountain pines by beetle infestations, is a sensitive issue for the Harper government as it battles environmentally-based opposition to rapid expansion of oil sands mining and extracting in the oil sands region around Fort McMurray, Alta.

As well, while resource-related displacement of the forest areas was a comparatively small contribution to the increase of Canada’s greenhouse gas accumulation in the atmosphere due to the loss of carbon sink potential, it is significant in terms of public attitudes toward the wider contribution of oilsands mining and upgrading to the country’s increase in the buildup of greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change.

During attempts by The Hill Times to discover why Natural Resources did not include a breakdown of industry sector deforestation for either 2011 or 2012 in the latest report on Canadian forests, the department’s media relations branch, speaking on behalf of the department, disclosed that even those two years will not be included in the annual reports until 2016.

As well, while the media branch told The Hill Times that a new “mapping” system for accumulating the data over a longer time period had been established in 2009, the report histories on the department’s website show the new time frames began under the then newly-appointed Natural Resources minister, Conservative MP Joe Oliver (Eglinton-Lawrence, Ont.) in 2011.

Gisella Perl was forced to work as a doctor in Auschwitz concentration camp during the holocaust.

She was ordered to report ever pregnant women do the physician Dr. Josef Mengele, who would then use the women for cruel experiments (e.g. vivisections) before killing them.

She saved hundreds of women by performing abortions on them before their pregnancy was discovered, without having access to basic medical supplies. She became known as the “Angel of Auschwitz”.

After being rescued from Bergen-Belsen concentration camp she tried to commit suicide, but survived, recovered and kept working as a gynecologist, delivering more than 3000 babies.

I want to nail this to the forehead of every anti-abortionist who uses the word “Holocaust” when talking about legal abortions.

Scientists Find Way To Reuse Cigarette Ash As A Water Filter

Among the long, long list of reasons why we shouldn’t smoke lies cigarette ash: it’s a fairly unsavory chemical cocktail that also happens to be a major eyesore around any popular smoking spot. But thanks to a team of chemists, we could use that same cocktail of horrific chemical to make water clean. Go science!

Specifically, a group of scientists led by Jiaxing Li of the Chinese Academy of Sciences found that coating cigarette ash in aluminium oxide makes for a highly effective filter for removing arsenic from water. Specifically, in tests they found that it stripped 96 per cent of arsenic from contaminated groundwater, meaning it meets the standards imposed by the World Health Organization for arsenic filters.

the wwf’s living planet report 2014, which discovered that we’ve lost half of all the world’s wildlife in the past fourty years, showed more specifically that the population of common dormice dropped by 43 percent between 1993 and 2010.

not only are dormice vulnerable to habitat loss, but they’re hesitant to cross open fields, and the grubbing out of hedgerows in recent decades has removed the wildlife corridors between woods that has allowed the dormice to move more freely to new habitat.  

dormice have very specialized diets of berries and nuts, and with less habitat they are unable to seek out enough food to fatten up before their six month hibernation (which was featured in these two posts).
