Please stop funding the animal agriculture industry, it wastes more water than anything. Please stop funding the depletion and destruction of resources. Here is a link describing the way that animal agriculture in general pollutes the Earth/wastes resources: http://www.onegreenplanet.org/animalsandnature/facts-on-animal-farming-and-the-environment/Here is a link that describes, in depth, the water footprint of animal agriculture compared to vegetables:http://www.waterfootprint.org/Reports/Mekonnen-Hoekstra-2012-WaterFootprintFarmAnimalProducts.pdfIt is obvious that animal agriculture is literally drying up the Earth and destroying it in other ways as well. Please do not fund this.

Hundreds of Romanian anti-fracking protesters break down the fences around a Chevron exploration site. Some 250 people gathered near the village of Pungesti chanting “Chevron go home. Following the incident, the US company later announced it was suspending activities in the area.

White people raise half a million dollars for the person who murdered an unarmed black person in cold blood, and then wonder why the rest of us have no confidence in white-majority juries?

In the eight days since Michael Brown, an eighteen-year-old, was killed by a police officer named Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri, what began as an impromptu vigil evolved into a sustained protest; it is now beginning to look like a movement.
The local QuikTrip, a gas station and convenience store that was looted and burned on the second night of the protests, has now been repurposed as the epicenter for gatherings and the exchange of information. The front of the lot bears an improvised graffiti sign identifying the area as the “QT People’s Park.”
With the exception of a few stretches, such as Thursday afternoon, when it was veiled in clouds of tear gas, protesters have been a constant presence in the lot. On Sunday afternoon the area was populated by members of local churches, black fraternity and sorority groups, Amnesty International, the Outcast Motorcycle Club, and twenty or so white supporters from the surrounding area.
On the north side of the station, a group of volunteers with a mobile grill served free hot dogs and water, and a man stood on a crate, handing out bright yellow T-shirts with the logo of the National Action Network, the group led by Al Sharpton.
The conversation here has shifted from the immediate reaction to Michael Brown’s death and toward the underlying social dynamics. Two men I spoke with pointed to the disparity in education funding for Ferguson and more affluent municipalities nearby.
Another talked about being pulled over by an officer who claimed to smell marijuana in the car as a pretense for searching him.
“I’m in the United States Navy,” he told me. “We have to take drug tests in the military so I had proof that there were no drugs in my system. But other people can’t do that.”
Six black men I spoke to, nearly consecutively, pointed to Missouri’s felon-disfranchisement laws as part of the equation.
“If you’re a student in one of the black schools here and you get into a fight you’ll probably get arrested and charged with assault. We have kids here who are barred from voting before they’re even old enough to register,” one said.
Ferguson’s elected officials did not look much different than they had years earlier, when it was a largely white community.
