- Earth on track to lose 2/3rds of wild animals by 2020, finds a new report by the World Wildlife Fund points. WWF’s director of science, Mike Barrett says, "... stemming the overall losses of animals and habitats requires systemic change in how society consumes resources. People can choose to eat less meat, which is often fed on grain grown on deforested land, and businesses should ensure their supply chains, such as for timber, are sustainable." The report also points out the terrible irony that habitat loss for animals also leads to food insecurity for people.
- Vote for the Earth, good affordable food, and the animals. Please cast an informed, kind vote during this crucial election. If you are thinking about not voting, please consider that the Humane Society Legislative Fund broke precedent by endorsing Hillary Clinton because "A Donald Trump presidency could mean the worst administration for animals, ever." Local races can be important for food and animal issues too. Here in NC, vote for Walter Smith for Agriculture Commissioner. Smith wants to repeal the "ag gag" law that makes it illegal for citizens to report cruelty, pollution, and other misbehavior on corporate farms.
