Animal Petition

Whether or not everyone can agree on it, climate change is happening. According to NASA, the average global temperature has increased by over three degrees in the last hundred years. In addition, sea levels are up by over an inch, while overall precipitation has increased by eight inches. These rapid changes spell bad news for every living thing on the planet, but particularly for the Polar Bear. These animals are native to the arctic circle, where they have evolved to roam large sheets of ice, hunting the seals that also make their homes here. However, due to the rapid increase in ocean temperatures, the ice sheets are melting at the rate of 8.6 million acres per year, creating major changes in the polar bear’s natural habit.

While the governments of the world bicker about the causes of this situation, the glaciers are melting, fast. This means a change in the migration patterns of the seals, which forces the bears to journey far and wide looking for food, or to starve trying. Some bears are trying to adapt by swimming miles, sometimes for days on end looking for the seals. While others are adapting by feeding on new food sources. There have been recent reports of bears raiding dumpsters and even eating dolphins, who have also been forced into new migration patterns by changing water temperatures.

None of these animals understands that its habitat is disappearing. They don’t know why this is happening, or what to do about it. They only know that they are hungry and trying to feed themselves and their babies in the best way that they can. These bears are apex predators. Most of them have never even seen a human, yet they are becoming the poster children of global warming, victims of human offenses a whole world away. By now, we are all familiar with the idea that Polar Bears are disappearing, but a recent image from Andreas Weith of an emaciated bear in the Arctic solidifies what exactly this means:

polar bear

 

With so much suffering in the world, it can be easy to ignore the plight of this poor emaciated creature, desperately clinging to survival at the edge of the world. But by ignoring the fate of animals, we are also ignoring the fate of ourselves. In many ways, this bear’s disappearance signifies the beginning of a downward trajectory that we may not be able to stop if we don’t seriously take action.

The good news is, there is one simple thing that we can all do every day to help this desperate species recover. One Green Planet believes that our global food system dominated by industrial animal agriculture is at the heart of our environmental crisis.

This destructive industry currently occupies over half of the world’s arable land resources, uses the majority of our freshwater stores, and drives greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, this system causes rampant air and water pollution, land degradation, deforestation and is pushing countless species to the brink of extinction. And yet, one in eight people still suffer from food scarcity.

“The real war against climate is being fought on our plates, multiple times a day with every food choice we make,” says Nil Zacharias, co-founder and Editor-in-Chief of One Green Planet, ”one of the biggest challenges facing our planet, and our species is that we are knowingly eating ourselves into extinction, and doing very little about it.”

As the leading organization at the forefront of the conscious consumerism movement, it is One Green Planet’s view that our food choices have the power to heal our broken food system, give species a fighting chance for survival, and pave the way for a truly sustainable future.

By choosing to eat more plant-based foods, you can drastically cut your carbon footprint, save precious water supplies and help ensure that vital crop resources are fed to people, rather than livestock. With the wealth of available plant-based options available, it has never been easier to eat with the planet in mind. Check out One Green Planet’s #EatForThePlanet movement to learn more!

My husband and I have been married for about 2 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn\'t even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that prophet abudu can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me.48 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. highly recommend prophet abudu, he is Powerful and really love spell caster. If you have any problem contact him via email:[email protected] or visit his website http://abudusolutiontemple.webs.com.And i guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you.
