Jane Goodall: Chimps Need Our Help 'Desperately'

Commented Mar 20, 2012 at 20:46:10 in Green

“Jane Goodall is an inspiration. She is making a difference everyday educating the world about the importance of respecting our animal brothers and sisters and their habitat. She is speaking at the local museum tomorrow and I feel honoured to be able to attend this event. You should watch the trailer for the documentary Jane's Journey which follows her life's work: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndwon_IPlHU

“I've always been amazed by Jane Goodall. A true pioneer, with great bravery to go amongst these apes with there incredible strength, and capability for violence.”

“Great point. The issues are much broader that climate change - but that is an easy umbrella term. The reality is - whether or not people believe the climate will be permantely changed - ecosystems are suffering today, animal populations are signifantly decreasing, and the risks of an oil spill far out weight the short term gains. So I hope Peter Kent addresses the current challenges our environment faces instead of quoting false accusations that "climate change" is not real.”

“What actions are you taking to mitigate climate change, or even mitigate the detrimental effects that industry has on our environment today?”

williamjgc on Feb 23, 2012 at 08:31:00

“To use the term "climate change" to describe a so-called problem is mistaken. What the climate does is change. You'll have to come up with the next (3rd) scientifically unproven hypothesis to with which to bang your drum.”

“The main problem is the mass production in the meat industry. North Americans today eat 5x more meat than they did 50 years ago and there are a lot more of us. In these overcrowded, dung filled facilities disease spreads easily. Unfortunately it is cheaper to spend money on antibiotics than provide more sanitary living conditions.

That is why meatless monday campaigns are very positive. If we all ate less meat than hypothetically we wouldn't need these overcrowded, contaminated facilities in the long run. And in the short run we would be reducing our antibiotic intake and toxin intake from eating high on the food chain.”

judithelise on Dec 24, 2011 at 15:37:06

“I agree with what you are saying about less meat being helpful but it is not "your" antibiotic intake that is the problem. The superbugs are being bred in the feedlot cattle. Even if you never eat meat you could still end up the unfortunate victim who gets the MRSA at your gym.”

“While this innovative technique states it provide an alternative to cotton because cotton requires large crop fields, it does not consider the land needed to grow crops to feed the cows (roughly 9x more land need to get the same amount of material from milk compared to cotton).

Our sustainable fabric research should focus on materials that protect the environment in their entirety; we can't just look at the final inputs. Furthermore, another main reason people are attracted to organic fabrics is because the pesticides used to create conventional fabric damage surrounding ecosystems, animals, and farmers. Using milk based products, even organic, ensures the suffering of many dairy cows and supplies the veal industry.

I commend research for sustainable fabrics - but milk does not appear be the best alternative.”

“Is Kathryn Marshall really concerned about human rights and democracy? Or is she concerned about confusing Canadians about the tar sands. Ethical oil is a dangerous catchphrase as it tries to compare two separate unethical issues - democracy & protecting the environment and our health.

If you are really concerned about women and human rights Kathryn, pick a greater cause to fight for rather than the tar sands!

Fight for the right for current and future generations to have clean water and air.”

“Thank you for this informative article Barbara Cartwright. Your advocacy is helping end a terribly sad and cruel industry. As you said, there are many sources contributing to the problem (lack of regulation, lack of enforcement, & unscrupulous breeders) but there is one solution. Buy dogs from a humane society, SPCA, or reputable rescue group.

“It is only habitat protection that will save the caribou in the long run, says research by Greenpeace. Killing wolves will be an inhumane and unnecessary short-term solution. Please sign this petition to protect the wolves.

Here is also a link to a 1997 Canadian documentary that warned viewers that the mining industry threatens many species in the tundra barrens of northern Canada, including caribou.
