Note To My Critics:

The links to the many sites that I've included contain information that I believe to be relevant, be it the graphics, the videos, the undercover investigations, etc. . Exposing & and ending the brutality and savagery inflicted on the non-human animals is what I am focused on. I strongly believe that every voice against animal abuse/exploitation is of value and -and- collectively we have the power to end it. I am here for the animals, not for anyone's approval and for that I make no apologies. ** I do not promote violence towards humans. ___________________________________________________ Bookmark and Share

Planet Earth: Too Big To Fail



Hi Friends,

We are all doing our part to stop global warming. But world leaders are not. Greenpeace took bold action to push world leaders towards bold action to prevent run away climate change .



As representatives from the world’s 17 biggest global warming polluters met at the State Department in Washington, D.C. this morning, Greenpeace activists climbed a crane across the street to hang a banner with a picture of Earth and the message “Too Big to Fail.” The banner hang lasted over 3 hours and when they came down, 7 activists we're arrested including Greenpeace USA’s new executive director, Phil Radford, who officially starts the job on Monday. Don't worry though, all activists have been released!



The representatives are meeting for the Major Economies Forum (MEF), a meeting of the largest greenhouse gas emitters on the planet. That's why Greenpeace used this banner hang to demand global action that will ensure a peak in emissions by 2015 followed by a rapid decline to as close to zero emissions as possible by 2050, which climate scientists say are crucial targets if we are to avert the worst affects of global warming. World leaders at the MEF must take responsibility for the planet and commit themselves to building a strong, legally binding agreement at the UN Climate Summit in Copenhagen being held this December.

We need you to take action as well. For the world to come together to solve global warming, America needs to take bold action itself.

TAKE ACTION: Demand Congress help kickstart the Energy [R]evolution!
