Comments Off on PETA urges probe of endangered monkeys’ death at zoo

Two tiny endangered monkeys died  at a Louisiana zoo last week after being left out in the cold overnight, as temps dipped into the 30s F. A third monkey survived the exposure, and the zoo caretaker responsible for the deaths has since resigned. People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is calling for a probe into the deaths to determine if the incident is an indication of wider-spread problems at the zoo.

US coastlines will be flooding 30 times a year by 2050

Comments Off on US coastlines will be flooding 30 times a year by 2050

By 2050, huge areas of the US coast could be subject to more than 30 days of flooding each year, thanks to accelerating sea level rise from global warming. Recent data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association identifies 2050 as the “tipping point” for nuisance flooding, which refers to floods that see water levels 1 to 2 feet above local high tide. The NOAA says these tipping points will affect all US coastlines , and they’ll even be exceeded in many areas.

The Netherlands Says “No” to Monsanto, Bans RoundUp Herbicide

Comments Off on The Netherlands Says “No” to Monsanto, Bans RoundUp Herbicide

The Netherlands is the latest country, after Russia, Tasmania and Mexico , to say no to Monsanto. Starting from the end of 2015, the sale of glyphosate-based herbicides to private parties will be prohibited due to a recent decision by the Dutch Parliament. This means that people who spray RoundUp on their gardens and lawns will have to find another form of pest control. The main ingredient in RoundUp, glyphosate, has been linked to cancer, infertility, birth defects, nervous system damage, and kidney disease.

USDA Invests $2 Million in Sustainable Wooden Skyscraper Designs

Comments Off on USDA Invests $2 Million in Sustainable Wooden Skyscraper Designs

Last week at a meeting hosted by the White House, the USDA announced plans to host a competition encouraging architects, engineers, and builders to start designing and building high rises out of a simple and unexpected building material — wood. With so many modern buildings made of concrete and steel, it may seem like a strange choice, but the truth is that new technologies are already producing incredibly strong, lightweight, and flame-resistant timber that could drastically reduce building time and carbon emissions compared to conventional building materials .

Comments Off on USDA Says Global Warming is Hurting Agriculture, Announces “Climate Hubs” to Address the Threat

Lengthy droughts , severe storms , epic floods and fires, and extreme temperatures have all wreaked havoc on the agricultural landscape in the past year, putting some ranchers and farmers out of business and causing price fluctuations in the food market. To help assess risk and deal with these threats, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack just announced a new system of climate hubs, which will open all across the US to gather and analyze the effects of climate change.

Although the Senate finally passed the long-awaited Farm Bill on Tuesday, the Obama administration has plans to bypass the sluggish, gridlocked legislative branch to help farms face climate change . The White House announced on Wednesday that the administration aims to establish seven regional “climate hubs” to assist rural communities in the event of floods, droughts, fires, soil degradation, and pest damage.

Comments Off on USDA Whistleblowers Warn of Chemical Hazards in Poultry Plants

Recently, states such as New York, Montana, North Dakota, Kansas, Iowa and Missouri have passed  laws that seek to outlaw or limit undercover farm investigations that have been dubbed “ ag-gag bills ” by activists. But there are still many people who refuse to remain silent in the face of animal and human abuse. The Food Integrity Campagin and The Government Accountability Project have this week published a pair of affidavits from USDA inspectors reporting the unsafe use of chemicals in poultry processing plants and their effects on worker safety.
