Green Issues

This section is designed for environment conscious users to take a look at some of the problems in the balance of the natural world caused by human growth and production. Let's raise awareness of the reality and magnitude of these problems and have a discussion on how effectively various governments and groups are addressing them.

While there is nothing quite like a literal second skin to protect your from certain injuries, if they're being raised just for this purpose, it's wasteful...especially if they die the skins pink and you find them on a Kardashian. THAT'S a true injustice.

We're not neanderthals that would need animal fur to keep warm. We have cotton, synthetic blends, silk, and wool for God's sake!

Their reason for existing isn't to make us laugh. They weren't designed for this crap as wild animals. A barely acceptable reason for them to be used like this is if they were domesticated and would not be deemed "wild" anymore, but we all know you can't get rid of those primitive instincts by trying to teach them to freaking juggle!

When I had my second wife executed for witchcraft/incest, I had a tasty swan and it was divine. It was a start of a new marriage with the fair Jane Seymour. However there are certain birds that I refused to touch-owls, falcons, cockatoos, African Greys, Indian ringnecks and parakeets(it brings up bad memories my dear departed Buddy). I also think that farmers should treat their birds better(I don't want to eat something that munches on their own poop).

Most crops grown in the US, especially soy, corn, grains, fruits and vegetables, are GMO plants.

Companies like Monsanto and Cargill have created seeds modified to be resistant to pesticides, herbicides, and to keep them from natural spoilage, etc. In many instances, the pesticide itself is implanted into GMO crops and we eventually ingest that. In one case, they implanted Roundup Ready herbicide on alfalfa sprouts. On the surface, it sounds like a great scientific development, but its true effects are unknown long term; in fact, it can be very detrimental to human health, causing cancer and other disorders.

The seeds cannot be harvested for replanting next season, so a farmer has to go back to the company for more seeds. If we allow it to continue, the world's food supply will be left in the hands of a few companies who control the patents for seed. That's their real game in my opinion. Another risk is the lack of genetic variation among GMO raised crops. A blight could easily strike, wiping out an entire crop, causing famine, especially in developing nations. We've already seen this happen in several East African and Asian nations.

Companies such as Monsanto, along with the food companies like General Mills are fighting legislation to require food producers to label their foods GMO. Would you really want to eat something that may cause health problems a few years down the road? Not only should there be full disclosure, but legislation should be set in motion to ban these foods and seeds from the market, as Europe has already done.

Another problem for the farmer is the cross contamination that occurs when a nearby field gets pollenated by a GMO crop. Monsanto has been known to go after the offended farmer and sue them for patent infringement or for outright stealing the seeds. How far are they willing to go to protect their patents, to control the market? In many instances, they bully small farmers and leave them in deep debt by charging exorbitant prices for their seed, which is the only one they are permitted to use. And how about product safety? In many instances, GMO products undergo very limited safety testing, especially when it shows that it has a negative effect on test subjects, usually small animals. The big boys like Monsanto can do this because they control the regulatory agencies. Ultimately, we're stuck paying the price.

I love leather! Real leather from a dead animal that did us the favor to die so we can be warm.

I am all for killing animals for their fur. I would much rather any animal die than me die just cause I wouldn't want to get their fur to keep my own self warm. Killing animals is a good thing! We need to kill animals cause it is how we as humans made by God in Heaven survive and he allows us to so there is nothing wrong with it.

I don't know how this works so I can't say anything about this one.
