Could Veganism End World Hunger?

“….it has been proven that there is enough food on earth to feed every last man, woman, and child. Yet, if this is the case, why do people around the world continue to starve? The answer to that question lies in large part with the production of animal-based foods, such as meat, dairy, and eggs. Even though there are enough plant-based foods grown to feed the entire human population, the majority of crops (including those grown in countries where people are starving) are fed to livestock for affluent nations, and since the amount of animal-based food produced by the farming industry is much less than the amount of plant food put into it, there is a “diminished return on the investment,” the food supply dwindles, and humans end up going hungry.”

Correlation of global temperature with solar activity

Scientific article on the correlation of global temperature with solar activity. “While it appears that the measured solar cycle length tracks the temperature better than the CO2 concentration for the twentieth century up to 1970, this presented data remains quite controversial. When you look at the climate models that seek to show the human influence past 1970, you do see a good correlation of the temperature with the projected CO2 influence included, while the correlation with solar cycle length weakens.”

We have filmed undercover in fur farms, lobbied for a ban on fur farming and persuaded countless shops to stop selling real fur. We also work with anti-fur groups across the world. The fur industry is a global one so our fight against it should work on an international level too. Please join us in the struggle on behalf of fur-bearing animals worldwide. Get actively involved, educate others and support us financially.”

Chomping Climate Change – Blog

Blog. “Chomping Climate Change addresses the failure of politicians for more than 20 years to implement international policies on climate change. Now most people don’t trust what politicians say about climate change. But we explain that there’s a fast and inexpensive opportunity to reverse climate change – by replacing most of today’s least eco-friendly food products with better alternatives. Raising animals for food uses an estimated 45% of all land on earth, and most of that land was once forested – and it can be reforested with trees that will draw down carbon from our atmosphere to a safe level.”

Changing the Game: Animal Liberation in the Twenty-First Century

“Norm Phelps has long been one of the leading theoreticians, historians, and strategists of the animal advocacy movement. His new book collects his recent writings on this subject, as well as offers in print for the first time a fully revised and updated version of the e-book he published with Lantern in 2013 (978-1-59056-379-3). Phelps argues that faced with the overwhelming wealth and power of the animal exploitation industries, animal activists are like David trying to stand up to Goliath. But rather than following the unsuccessful strategies of the past, Phelps proposes that we change the game by adopting David’s strategy of refusing to play by Goliath’s rules. Additional essays explore class and race in animal advocacy, the place of public policy vs. private morality in creating social change, and the unyielding barrier of human exceptionalism. Trenchant, wise, and deeply committed to the reduction of suffering and the liberation of animals, Changing the Game is sure to offer animal advocates much food for thought as the movement charts a way forward for all sentient beings. “

This is a must-read for climate activists, policymakers, citizen advocates, sustainable tech and design professionals—anyone with an interest in what it takes to advance visionary and practical solutions to climate disruption. Over the past decade, California has managed to decouple the growth of greenhouse gas emissions and the economy, reducing per capita emissions by 17% while maintaining one of the most robust economies in the U.S. With nearly 200,000 clean energy jobs, a vibrant economy, and poised to invest literally hundreds of billions of dollars into a low carbon economy, the world’s eighth largest economic engine is positioning itself as a model for the world. In the fall of 2014, as part of the 25th annual Bioneers Conference, Bioneers convened a very special gathering of key leaders to help start a conversation that seemed long overdue: California’s leadership role in the global effort to combat climate change. This volume, taken from talks given at the 2014 event, is both an accessible and detailed look at some of the key areas where California is particularly out in front.”

”Blackberry Creek Farm Animal Sanctuary was founded in November of 2014 by two middle school teachers who wanted to pair their love of animals and their concern for students to create a more compassionate world. By partnering children and adults who have suffered loss, trauma, neglect, or loneliness with animals who have experienced the same, magic is sparked. Friendships born between humans and animals encourage people to think of them as individuals with feelings and personalities, and the empathy born from these relationships creates kindness and goodwill toward all creatures and all people, something this world could use a great deal more of.”

Beyond Carnism

“Beyond Carnism is a US-based, international organization dedicated to exposing and transforming carnism, the invisible belief system that conditions people to eat certain animals. Carnism causes extensive suffering. Animal agriculture is responsible for the unnecessary slaughter of 77 billion land animals worldwide per year, and it is a major contributor to environmental degradation, human disease, and human rights violations. However, the majority of people who eat animals are unaware that they are contributing to such destruction. At Beyond Carnism, we believe that people need and deserve to know the truth about carnism, so they can make their food choices freely — because without awareness, there is no free choice. Beyond Carnism seeks to empower concerned citizens and vegan advocates through education and activism, to help create a more compassionate and just world for all beings, human and nonhuman alike.”

Be Fair Be Vegan

“Why vegan? You already know the answer. You may not know all the facts of animal exploitation, but you do know that animals must suffer and die in order to become the products you choose to consume. You may not know all the sobering facts of animal agriculture’s impact on the environment, world hunger and human health, but you do know that human actions are destroying the planet, that many of its inhabitants are starving, and that there is a direct link between diet and health. You may not know all the practical details of living vegan, but you do know, and already live by, the fundamental truth that causing harm for pleasure is not a “personal choice” but an abhorrent abuse of power, and that refusing to impose misery and death for a taste, a trinket, a thrill, is not a sacrifice, but the most basic act of human decency. Please take a moment to learn who is spared when we live vegan, and who suffers when we choose not to. Familiarize yourself with the many, and serious, reasons for becoming vegan but remember that you already hold the key and the answer: your conscience. Act on it.”

Animals, Property & The Law

Book: “”Pain is pain, irrespective of the race, sex, or species of the victim, ” states William M. Kunstler in the Foreword. This moral concern for the suffering of animals and their legal status is the basis for Gary L. Francione’s profound book, which asks, Why has the law failed to protect animals from exploitation? Exploring every facet of this heated issue, Francione discusses the history of the treatment of animals, anticruelty statutes, vivisection, the Federal Animal Welfare Act, and specific cases such as the controversial injury of unanesthetized baboons at the University of Pennsylvania. He thoroughly documents the paradoxical gap between our professed concern with humane treatment of animals and the overriding practice of abuse permitted by the law.”

In Animal Liberation, author Peter Singer exposes the chilling realities of today’s “factory farms” and product-testing procedures—destroying the spurious justifications behind them, and offering alternatives to what has become a profound environmental and social as well as moral issue. An important and persuasive appeal to conscience, fairness, decency, and justice, it is essential reading for the supporter and the skeptic alike.”

Advocate for Animals!: An Abolitionist Vegan Handbook

“This book is a call to action. Since the beginning of time, there have been—in total—about 110 billion humans who have lived and died. We kill more nonhuman animals than that every single year. Think about that for a second. Our exploitation of nonhumans represents violence on a scale that is unparalleled. The largest number of animals we kill is for food—about 60 billion land animals and at least one trillion sea animals killed annually. And there are many billions more killed every year for various other reasons, including biomedical research, entertainment, and sport….In Advocate for Animals! – An Abolitionist Vegan Handbook, Gary Francione and Anna Charlton, two of the original pioneers of this Abolitionist movement, provide a practical guide about how you can become an effective voice in this most important movement for justice. They give you all sorts of ideas of how to advocate, and provide many examples of actual discussions so that you can see the sorts of approaches you can use in your own discussions with others.”

Adventist Peace Fellowship

“From the Seventh-day Adventist Church’s earliest beginnings, many of its members have dedicated their lives to working for peace and social justice “for the healing of the nations.” The Adventist legacy of social engagement has not always been a proud or heroic one, yet the Adventist tradition, at its best, has inspired—and continues to inspire—a passionate commitment to peacemaking, human rights, care for the environment, and solidarity with persons of all beliefs or none for the sake of the common good. The Adventist Peace Fellowship (APF) is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2001 that seeks to raise consciousness about the centrality of peacemaking and social justice to the beliefs and heritage of Adventists. We support public service, activism, advocacy, and scholarship that reflects the radical spirit of many Adventist pioneers. We welcome all Adventists and friends of Adventists to join our network and to add their voices and their talents to the work of peacemaking.”

A Prayer for Compassion

Film: “A Prayer for Compassion is a feature length documentary that strives to inspire and encourage those already on a religious or spiritual path, to expand their circle of compassion to embrace all life, regardless of species, and make choices in alignment with this value. The film follows Thomas Jackson on a quest across America, that ultimately takes him to Morocco for the UN Climate Conference and throughout the Indian subcontinent to ask the question, “Can compassion grow to include all beings? and Can people who identify as religious or spiritual come to embrace the call to include all human and nonhuman beings in our circle of respect and caring and love?””

A Declaration for Human/Earth/Animal Liberation

“In the Great Turning, Joanna Macy outlines three dimensions of the Great Transition from an industrial-growth, ownership society to a life-enriching, stewardship society: 1. Block that which is destroying us. 2. Create something new to replace it. 3. Change our story and relationship with the Earth. Unfortunately, we have many villains to pick among that which is destroying us: inequality, fossil fuels, capitalism, pollution, etc. However, there is one villain that hardly anyone ever talks about: animal agriculture. And as far as villains go, animal agriculture can don the mantle of a SuperVillain.”

Your Daily Vegan

“Hi. I’m KD Angle-Traegner, and I run Your Daily Vegan. I started this website in 2009 with one goal: To bring the vegan evolution to the masses. I’ve been living vegan for more than thirteen years — or 4,745 days — which I view as one of my most significant accomplishments. I’m not a vegan for myself, I live vegan to spare the lives of animals. I can’t save every life; I save every life that I can. I have shared the last 20+ years with my vegan wife, whom I married at Lasa Animal Sanctuary. Inspired by incredible life-saving work that animal sanctuaries do, I decided to start one of my own, Four Urban Paws Sanctuary.” Includes: Guides, Activism, Health, Recipes, Sanctuary Spotlight, Books & Movies
