Vegan Google Searches Growing Strong (Animation), + Justin Timberlake Vegan Video

Vegetarian has long been something Americans were familiar with, even if it wasn’t nearly as widespread as it is today. Heck, even famous historical figures like Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and Leonardo Da Vinci were vegetarian (of course, the diet became much more mainstream in the 60s and 70s). However, veganism developed

Science vs. Culture – Indian Scientists Clash Over Proposed Animal Welfare Law

With an estimated 5000 research institutions utilizing live animals, India has become a powerhouse in medical and biological research. But there’s a problem: according to the Animal Welfare Board of Indi, only 1700 of those institutions are in compliance with government registration laws, and only 200 or so have adequate facilities for the proper housing and care of animals. A new Animal Welfare Law has been proposed with provisions, out-right bans,and penalties that some scientists are calling excessively “harsh”.

Earth Day 2011 Reflections

I think most of us green bloggers get quite frustrated with Earth Day. It can be a struggle for us to stay positive at this time. Why? Because we write about critical environmental issues and solutions to them all year long, and we are confronted with how little others are aware of or interested in such issues when Earth Day comes around. All of a sudden, a large number of people ‘care’ about the environment,… but don’t expect that to stay ’till tomorrow. We get numerous pitches from non-green companies who want us to feature them in our Earth Day posts (as well as pitches from truly green companies, of course). For one day, it is more “fashionable” to be green. But just for one day.

Livestock Production, Environment, and Going Green

Several months ago, back in June of 2010, I wrote up a story on the environmental impact of eating meat based on a new-at-the-time United Nations (UN) report on the matter.
