  1. Can someone explain a little bit further? Does this have anything to do with the fact that antibiotics might also kill of "good" bacterial used to fight off diseases? I wasn't quite sure, but at least I am being made more aware of what affect the use of antibiotics in meat production could do. I know that users of these medicines (even animals) could become indeed resistant as a result of long-term use.

  2. I hope I didn't accidentally reply to this already. If so, oops. LOL Anyway, I like to recycle and I have in the past picked up litter when I saw it lying around. When I am walking a dog I would take bags with me to pick up the doo-doo with and then throw it in the nearest garbage can. I used to work for an environmental cause going door-to-door. It was for a job but at least it was nice to inform the public.

  3. Well it all depends on where I am going and what I am going to do. But I usually take the train for long distances, the bus on semi-long distances (also depends on the weather) and I use my bike for shorter distances. :)

    That makes perfect sense to me. To add to that, I live in a city where the bus only runs until 6p.m. at the latest on Saturdays, and not at all on Sundays. Therefore, if I continue to use my car, it would especially be on the weekends. Furthermore, sometimes I or another person may need to be somewhere that is past the time the bus runs during the week. Therefore, I sometimes have to use the car.

  4. I think I understand what you mean when you say that everything - including human pollution - is nature at work. However I do wish to separate humans from nature when we speak of them, because I think it's a useful distinction.

    Can you explain a little bit further? I guess I have a tendency to think that because we are on this earth we are a part of nature, and supposed to be (as far as I know) the most intelligent creatures here taking care of the earth is our responsibility. You may have a slightly different point of view as separating humans from nature. I was wondering what you meant by that, just for interest sake:)
  5. I agree with zoos as long as the animals are given enough habitat space in which to roam. The zoos in my state seem to, although one local zoo did close down. That was a bummer. We still have our local Wildlife Sanctuary here though.

  6. This may seem like a generic answer, but I can't help it. I am passionate about dogs. Dogs rule, as in the movie Cats and Dogs. LOL I think it has something to do with the fact that I grew up with having more dogs as pets than any other animals. They are friendly, cuddly, and cute.

  7. I can see how the noise pollution (i.e. sound of the airplane) could be disturbing. It's not only disturbing to animals, but also humans. The same is for when a person lives by the train tracks. However, I know this is not just about us humans. This world is about the animals. I wonder if they could go deaf from the noises? Do birds and other animals have more sensitive ears? (If there was something in the article I missed about that part of it, I am sorry in advance. I skimmed it kind of fast.)

  8. I think it's alright. I personal get scared though, thinking it will be me that gets the thumbs down next time. I gotta really watch what I say. LOL I personally like a rating system based on one to five stars more than I like a thumbs up/down system. However, I can see the point that it is meant to flag inflammatory or spam posts. However, can't the spam posts be either deleted or blocked? I suppose that takes time too.

  9. This is a very scary issue, as the global use of the Internet could actually bring a terrorist to someone's back yard two or three thousand miles away. I hope there is a way to deal with these terrorist's rings without shutting down some of my favorite networks completely. I know it could be tough to band the terrorist members though because they could always just sign up for a new username. I don't know what to think exactly, but if I were to see a threat message on my Twitter, FB, or other account I would delete and block that person faster than you can click on the "report abuse" button.

  10. It is supposed to be a pudding? It sounds good. However, I wouldn't mind making myself a fall or winter hot chocolate drink with the cocunut oil and hot chocolate. I'd probably also spike it with coffee. :)

  11. Yeah, I don't this this topic should be pinned to SUV owners, but I just can't stand littering. Did you ever see the streets of New York? I was there and it stunk and there was litter everywhere. That is a good example of what happens if everyone were to do it. However, please don't stereotype SUV users, unless you want to complain about the gas mileage of one of those vehicles. LOL

  12. I always thought at least the use of methane made from corn was a great idea, in that at least some effort is being made in this world towards other forms of energy. I am sure corn is not the only plant that could produce methane. It is just the first (or one of) the first that has been tried. I didn't read the article for which this post belongs. However, I wonder: can the farmers really help who orders their corn?

  13. Why do some people deny the overwhelming evidence for anthropogenic climate change? I think there are many different answers to that questions.

    Their denialism could for example be supported by religious beliefs. Especially Christians have this weird belief that we humans have the right to do whatever we please against nature because we are above the animals. Some also believe that it doesn't matter if we destroy our planet and nature simply because the rapture / judgement day will soon come and that they will come to a better place after their death.

    "I wrote a blog post in 2009 about how Evangelical Christians in USA help spread climate denial and confusion. A study done by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life showed that among white evangelical Protestants in USA only 34% believed the earth is warming due to human activity, and over 30% of them don’t believe in it at all. Another example of this is Congressman John Shimkus (R-Ill) who in 2009 said that God will decide when the earth will end during introductory remarks at a House Subcommittee on Energy and Environment."

    I have faith in God and am a Christian, and I don't agree with the mentality that we could just do with the earth what we want. That's like saying we are all going to die anyway so let's just go steal, kill, and (in this case) destroy everything we want! I first was disgusted with a group of people I was hanging out with in a young adult group after I went back to church. They were all very environmentally conservative. I later met knew Christian friends who advocated natural foods, chemical-free living, energy conservation, and so on. (I am not strict about this but I try do do what I can.)

    ..."Say goodbye to cleaning products and hello to vinegar, bicarbonate of soda and essential oils! Long gone are the toxic snail pellets and pesticides, replaced by chilli and garlic spray and plants that don’t attract snails or bugs in the first place. Organic fruits and vegetables abound. Soaps, shampoos and conditioners and body/lotions and potions made from chemicals are discarded in favor of plant-produced products...."

    My Response...

    I think living as chemical free as possible is an excellent idea. I am very much a fan of using vinegar and baking soda when cleaning. Did you or anyone on this thread ever use Borax? I may still use the chemical cleaners once in awhile, but sometimes not. As far as shampoos and other cosmetics, I go natural when I can afford it. :)
