Earth day has become pretty meaningless to me. Everyone claims to care about the earth and want to make it a better place, yet they do nothing to change it. Most people’s actions towards “helping the planet” isn’t really so they can help the earth, it’s so they can help themselves. They want to feel good about themselves for doing little, meaningless things that they believe makes a difference. They think these little things they do (like recycling, or using less water) can outweigh all their other destructive actions. But it simply doesn’t. You can’t claim to be an environmentalist if there is meat, dairy, and eggs on your plate. You can’t say “I love the earth,” if you eat animals and their products. It’s just not right. It takes 16-20 times the amount of natural resources required to feed a meat and dairy eater then it takes to feed a vegan. Factory farming accounts for 37% of methane emissions, which is SIGNIFICANTLY more harmful than carbon dioxide. Meat production emits more greenhouse gases than the ENTIRE transportation sector. Hundreds of millions of acres are clear cut for livestock grazing, or to grow corn and soybeans for livestock to eat. 7 football fields of land is bulldozed EVERY MINUTE to create room for animals being grown to feed humans. 150 billion animals are murdered each year to feed a population of 7 billion. Think of all that poop, shit that is ending up directly in our water and killing countless animals and water bodies. Eating animals also uses an immense amount of water, it’s disguting. Producing one pound of animal protein requires around 100 times more water than producing one pound of vegetable protein. Animal agriculture is completely destroying the earth. Want to do something meaningful this earth day? And everyday for the rest of your life? Go vegan.

It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.

Be committed, not attached. But more importantly, know the difference.

I don’t want people to matter to me too much. Sometimes it hurts too much to think about them. Ones you love who don’t love you, ones who are dead or hate you, ones who you think about but never get to be with. I like people but when I get too close, it fucks me up and I can’t get things done.

My biggest accomplishment is not killing myself the many times I wanted to.

You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.

Animals have done us no harm and they have no power of resistance. There is something so very dreadful in tormenting those who have never harmed us, who cannot defend themselves, who are utterly in our power.

Saving dauphins is expected, but this guy saves a shark!!!
Thank you sir, for showing us there’s still some hope for humanity!

more amazing people«

I had a look at the original video and news articles about this. Apparently the man was fishing and accidentally hooked the great white shark, but cut it loose; then he realized the poor thing was beached. What you don’t see here is what’s possibly the most awesome part: he realized the shark still had his hook in its mouth and went to the effort of removing the hook.

From the mouth of a live, distressed great white shark.

Which he then got back into the water and set free.

His name’s Shane Cox, and he’s a pretty damn awesome Australian for that.

it’s so weird for me to see such a small baby great white, given that all you normally see are the massive 18 ~ 20 foot sharks…

But huge props to this guy for saving him (her?)!!

Maddi is Australia a real place please confirm y/n

A young woman was restrained, force-fed and injected with cosmetics in a high street shop window as part of a hard-hitting protest against animal testing.

Jacqueline Traide was tortured in front of hundreds of horrified shoppers in a bid to raise awareness and end the practice.

The 24-year old endured 10 hours of experiments, which included having her hair shaved and irritants squirted in her eyes, as part of a worldwide campaign by Lush Cosmetics and The Humane Society.

The disturbing stunt took place in Lush’s Regent Street store, one of the UK’s busiest shopping streets.

Jacqueline appeared genuinely terrified as she was pinned down on a bench and had her mouth stretched open with two metal hooks while a man in a white coat force-fed her until she choked and gagged.

The artist was also injected with numerous needles, had her skin braised and lotions and creams smeared across her face.

Passers-by were gobsmacked to see Jacqueline, a social sculpture student at Oxford Brookes University, forced to have a section of her head shaved.

The gruesome spectacle aimed to highlight the cruelty inflicted on animals during cosmetic laboratory tests and raise awareness that animal testing is still a common practice.

The Humane Society International and Lush Cosmetics have joined forces to launch the largest-ever global campaign to end animal testing for cosmetics.

The campaign, launched to coincide with World Week for Animals in Laboratories, is being rolled out simultaneously in over 700 Lush Ltd shops across forty-seven countries including the United States, Canada, India, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea and Russia.

Lush campaign manager Tamsin Omond said: “The ironic thing is that if it was a beagle in the window and we were doing all these things to it, we’d have the police and RSPCA here in minutes.

“But somewhere in the world, this kind of thing is happening to an animal every few seconds on average.

“The difference is, it’s normally hidden. We need to remind people it is still going on.”

-Dr. Heiter
