I don’t get why people have done literally zero research about veganism love to argue with people who have spent years being vegan. Who have read books, googled everything, and are really passionate about a serious life long commitment.

POLISH FUR BUSINESS IS BOOMING

Fur farmed animals in Poland have been found to be some of the worst on the planet. AR people in Poland have liberated many victims in conditions so abhorrent, it is beyond anyone’s comprehension. Fur farmed animals are NOT VETTED as it’s cheaper to let them die in misery. This is a typical disease that foxes catch because of the kind of food they eat, sharing with others, their unhealthy confinement, etc.

Your fur isn’t in a nice lil farm where they frolic all day till they eventually die old. You contribute to suffering

Look at the notes on this. SMH. If this was a post about some vegans feeding their animals vegan food, carnists would cry “animal abuse”, lose their shit and this would have thousands of notes. But this kind of animal abuse is perfectly acceptable. Fucking carnist hypocrites don’t see nothing wrong with this. Ugh! We’re lucky to have 500 notes on posts about animal abuse.

"For everyone non vegan outraged about the dolphins: hold that thought. Other animals they swim in blood, not the ocean but on the slaughterhouse floor. They swim in despair in the zoos, in the aquaparks and in the circus. They swim in pain in the laboratories. They swim in terror on the farms. They LIVE in fear of YOU, the consumer who is paying to do this to them. A dolphin is a cow is a pig is a monkey is an elephant. Be outraged, but be consistent about it by being vegan.” -Nik Anti-Speciesist

Astronaut hunt turns into sexist nightmare for female finalist

She’s losing by 20k votes. Let’s fix this.

After the 30th or so reblog on my dash, I finally went over to vote. Apparently she’s now destroying them. Nice work, tumblr.


Not for long. Adam has been getting ~600 every half-hour or so and if we don’t keep this up, Rose will lose. 
GO TEAM ROSE FOR SPACE!

Adam’s average hourly increase has been roughly about 1.5K votes/hour, while Rose’s is slightly under 600 votes/hour.
I’m guessing that if the current trends continue, Adam will outpace Rose within 31 hours.
You know what to do.

Leading competition just shot up by 2700 votes in the last hour! COME ON TEAM ROSE FOR SPACE!

Blackfish (Official Trailer)

trailer for this documentary about the captivity of orca whales, and that whale who killed sea world trainers, which i blogged about in 2010. see the list of movie screenings

Potatoes O’Diezo and basil, tofu scramble.

Potatoes O’Diezo (The main thing to remember in general is to add ingredients according to their density and softness so you don’t have super crunchy potatoes or and carrots unless you’re into that):

1. Sautee garlic and onion in oil. I usually do these first because the kids HATE biting into really potent garlic and onion.

2. Cube potatoes into 1/2 inch size and add to pan

3. Cube carrots likewise and add to pan

4. Cube zucchini and add to pan

5. Kale stems. When I add kale, I cut the lower thicker portion of the stems and add those before I add the leafy part to make sure they get cooked well. 

6. Whatever seasoning you want. This time was curry powder which was so good. Salt to taste.

7. Kale leaves. I slice the leaves in thirds lengthwise, then cut them into like matchstick strips. I do these last because I don’t like when they get too wilted. 

Tofu scramble:

1. Crumble firm tofu with your hands into a lightly oiled pan.

2. Curry powder and salt to taste.

3. Daiya

4. Matchstick sized basil in the end like the kale.

I’m easy. I look at what groceries I have and just toss them in a pan with whatever seasoning I feel like that day. If you ever look at my other food posts, you would notice a trend of the same types of veggies but different combos.

We really don’t know why monarch butterflies are disappearing:

This is horrific. We’ve lost over 80% of the butterflies.
The waning of our monarchs has lead to the inevitable speculations as to the cause. Which is fair enough. But I’d like to point out the ideas are just speculation.
No one really knows why Monarchs are declining, or why 2012-13 is such a bad year. 
Lacking the proper experiments to determine how various factors affect the butterflies, and lacking solid data about their milkweed food sources, assigning causes to the phenomenon simply isn’t possible. The monarchs are disappearing. That’s all we can say with certainty.
Candidate causes abound, though.
The severe heat and drought of 2012 across much of the monarch’s summer range may have reduced the monarch’s host plants and stressed the remaining animals.
The extensive use of agricultural herbicides in conjunction with herbicide-resistant crops could be eliminating the monarch’s food supply, perhaps causing the gradual decline over the past 10 years.
The destruction of milkweed habitat for corn ethanol production, also a gradual new phenomenon in the past 10 years, could reduce the monarch’s food.

If you want to help, here’s some things you can do:
- plant milkweed, as much as you can, everywhere you can, and encourage others to do the same, including encouraging your local government to plant butterfly gardens and use milkweed.
- protest any and all development of land that is currently good butterfly habitat.
- contact government members to petition for more money to go to butterfly conservation.
- donate to and volunteer for organizations that work to protect butterflies and their habitat.

World’s smallest dolphin to be extinct ‘imminently’ as fishing nets reduce species to just 55 survivors

by Tamara Cohen

The world’s smallest and rarest dolphins are facing ‘imminent’ extinction with just 55 individuals left, conservationists have warned.

Maui’s dolphins – which are classified as critically endangered - have seen their numbers halve in the last seven years alone, as dozens have been caught in fishing nets. Only found on the west coast of New Zealand, there may be as little as 20 breeding females left, a new study has found.


Although part of the coast is protected from fishing, along most of it, trawling and vast fixed nets held in place by anchors have been blamed for killing the striking animals. The last corpse of a Maui dolphin – which grow to just 1.7 m long - was found last month. 

Maui’s have a lifespan of around 20 years but only reach sexual maturity after around seven, and breed infrequently – around one calf every three years.


A new study carried out by University of Auckland, Oregon State University and the New Zealand Department of Conservation - using DNA  samples - found the number of dolphins aged more than a year had plummeted from 111 when the last survey was carried out in 2004…

it’s pretty fucked up that because of the “petition to make a death star” getting so many signatures, whitehouse.gov will now only look at petitions with 100k signatures instead of 25k. way to turn a legit means of contacting the government and getting them to notice serious issues into a shitty fandom joke.

Totally, but also can’t help but feel like really, is it that hard to ignore the few prank petitions in order to get to the legit ones. It sounds like a bit of a cop out to me.
