Pipeline Spilling 300,000 Gallons Kills Fish and Other Animals.

On Dec 27, 2021, in New Orleans a pipe bursts and spills 300,000 Gallons into two artificially made ponds. Killing Fish, Birds. and other wildlife. According to the State and Local Official, a majority of the fuel was recovered.

Yet that’s not the point is it? Animal Life was lost due to yet, another pipeline burst.

According to the pipeline owner. The spill from the 16-inch-diameter line operated by Collins Pipeline Co. was discovered on Dec. 27 near a levee in St. Bernard Parish, just east of New Orleans, according to documents from the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration.

An inspection of the 42-year-old Meraux Pipeline more than a year earlier, in October 2020, revealed external corrosion along a 22-foot section of pipe in the same area as the spill. But repairs were delayed and the line continued operating after a subsequent inspection indicated the corrosion was not bad enough to require work immediately under federal regulations, according to the pipeline agency.

Let me remind the people of how serious Corrosion is when it comes to pipelines. Or how dangerous it is when ship hauls are weak.

On July 25, Japanese ship MV Wakashio struck a coral reef on the southeast coast of Mauritius, spilling thousands of tons of fuel into the ocean. Soon the crystal-clear water turned black, triggering an environmental catastrophe.

The New Orleans spilled fuel also contaminated soil in an environmentally sensitive area near the Mississippi River Gulf Outlet, a closed canal, according to state and federal officials. A small amount of diesel remains in the two borrow pits, said Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality spokesman Gregory Langley.

Fuel Companies like BP and Collins do not care about the environment, they are killing everything slowly, and for what? GREED!

If Fuel Companies cannot stick to protocols and safety management, then what’s the point of even having a pipeline? Why not just spill it completely and kill everything right now instead of slowly. Get it over with, and by the time you want to collect that cash, you’ll have no customer base.

This is exactly one of the most important reasons why the majority of advocates are speaking up for NEW SOURCES of CLEAN FUEL. I understand switching from OIL to either Hydro, Corn, or Wind power is expensive. However, in the long run, it is worth it. You would be producing more jobs, truckers would be able to safely transport the water, corn oil, and or wind turbines. Companies would be able to make money from a cleaner fuel source. Everyone would win in this scenario.

Because you can’t get sick off of Corn Oil, Water/Hydro, or even Wind. The fact that companies say there is no money in cleaner fuel sources, is hyperbolic. The electric fuel source for cars – they’re making the figures to keep them around. To be fair the majority of people actually want a cleaner way of life, which is why many have switched to “Solar Power” and “Electric Cars”.

Besides that, these Oil Companies have Nearly Depleted these fossil fuels, there really isn’t much left. And this is also why gas prices have risen. Supply and Demand. It’s time to switch to a cleaner source of fuel.

This year should be the year where companies switch. It’s 2022 we should be more advanced by now. We should be on the cleaner path, we only have one planet, there is no escape when this planet dies off completely. Look at Mars for that example.

Crafting For The Homeless

With colder weather coming soon. If you have a hobby like knitting, crocheting or tailoring or quilting. Many people have become homeless due to the pandemic. They’ll need Scarves, hats, gloves, blankets and warm clothing.

They’re struggling to provide for themselves and family.

Help them by making these items and donating to Goodwill, Salvation Army, food pantries. Or directly to the homeless shelters in your areas.

There are tons of free crocheting, knitting, tailoring and quilting patterns on the web and Pinterest and Even Instagram.

When donating food it must be shelf stable. Something that will last awhile. Non-perishables.

It may not be much yet every little bit helps.

Women Are Not Objects

As many know the company Activision Blizzard is under a lawsuit for Sexual Assault/Harassment and hostile work environment.

As many might have guessed I played the popular game World Of Warcraft on my downtime. Yet after the events that took place, since 2013 apparently, I’ve come to the decision to stop playing and suspend my subscription.

I’m doing this in support for the women who endured the hell and in support of the employees that did a walkout in protest. My money will not support the company or continued harassment and sexual assault these women went through.

Many gamers are doing the same thing. In hopes that Blizzard will do better than what they have done. They’ve already done one thing right and that was firing Alex Afrasiabi. The main “man” who initiated the sexual harassment.

However, they fired him in 2020 years after his initial harassment and assault. The damage has been done, the fact that they waited this long for anything to be done, shows how corrupt they are.

Blizzard has also issued apologies, yet it’s too little to late. Apologies, terminations and possible compensation should have been done when the first complaints came in and not years after.

The fact that I have to even write a post such as this, makes me sick, and has literally destroyed my faith for humanity.

I want to understand why men feel like they have to objectify women why they feel that we as women don’t have rights, to be treated fairly, or have rights to speak up or criticize the wrong they have done.

Asmongold was a popular streamer for World Of Warcraft. He now plays a different game, yet his fan base, which he has no control of. Are heartless towards everyone who may speak out and express their views/opinions. That are different from his.

Asmon has been speaking out against blizzard and has on more than one occasion banned people from his streams that have attacked women.

She wasn’t being a terrible person, she was explaining what happens to women when they critique or share thoughts that are not on the same page as Asmon.

Bringing attention to bigots or men who disrespect women, is a real world problem and it needs to be solved.

She has a right to be scared of tweeting or speaking her mind on social media because of people like you, devaluing, her rights to speak out against sexism, against bigots and chauvinism.

She was not comparing Asmon to blizzard. She was pointing out his fan base being hostile towards women.

This isn’t the 1950’s, women are allowed to play video games and have jobs now. We are not your incubators, and we are certainly not your maids or live in chefs!!!

You have proven Laura’s point of how you think about and how you treat women.

As the title says Women are not objects. We are people and we deserve the same rights as everyone else. We deserve to be treated as people. We deserve compassion, empathy, we deserve equality and equity.

Just remember without women you would not even be alive today.

If you wouldn’t treat your mothers this way, then why treat other women this way.

I’m not a feminist yet I am “woke”. And this right here, the reality of this situation is an injustice towards women.

The only people that need to grow up are those who would objectify and devalue a woman’s worth.

WHO urges halt to sale of live wild animals in markets, citing disease risk – CBS News

Geneva — The United Nations’ health agency on Tuesday urged countries to suspend the sale of live animals captured from the wild in food markets. The World Health Organization recommended it as an emergency measure, saying wild animals are a leading source of emerging infectious diseases like the coronavirus.
 
The WHO, backed by key partners, issued new guidance saying that animals – particularly wild animals – “are the source of more than 70 percent of all emerging infectious diseases in humans, many of which are caused by novel viruses.”

President-elect Joe Biden has pledged to ban new oil and gas leasing

President-elect Joe Biden has pledged to ban new oil and gas leasing on America’s federal public lands and waters on Day One of his administration.

Nearly a quarter of the country’s total greenhouse gas emissions come from public lands due to coal mining and oil and gas drilling. We can’t keep leasing public lands to the fossil fuel industry and have any chance of reducing emissions or seriously confronting the climate crisis.

And due to Trump’s executive orders of undermining the Environmental Protection Act, along with the Water Protection Act. Big companies such as BP and Keystone, are free to muddy our waters with chemicals. Whilst also spewing poisonous gases into our ozone layer.

Just because Biden pledged to halt and undo Trump’s actions doesn’t necessarily mean he’ll DO. Let’s make him keep his words. By using our voices and signature.

Sign the petition and share.

Urge President-elect Biden to keep dirty fossil fuels in the ground

A Melting Antarctica Could Raise the Sea Level More Than Expected

Rounding Error

As rising global temperatures continue to melt the ice in Antarctica, scientists predict that we’ll face serious problems in the coming decades — from rising sea levels to devastating storms to temperatures rising even faster because there’s less ice to reflect heat.

Now, it turns out all those problems could be even worse than scientists predicted, according to research published in the journal Climate Dynamics. Existing models tended to predict ice melt based on average conditions over time, but accounting for fluctuating extremes paints a far more dire picture.

Accelerated Timeline

Climate models need to represent how chaotic weather patterns can be, study author and Penn State climate researcher Chris Forest argued in a press release. Accounting for those fluctuations, Forest’s work shows that the Antarctic ice sheet could retreat 20 years sooner than expected.

Factoring that in, the melting ice could raise the sea level by an additional 2.7 to 4.3 inches on top of the 10.6 to 14.9 inches that simpler models predict by the year 2100.

We know ice sheets are melting as global temperatures increase, but uncertainties remain about how much and how fast that will happen,” Forest said in the release.

Stop Trump from oil drilling in our national forests!


The Trump administration wants to make it easier for oil companies to drill in national forests by squashing environmental reviews, public comments periods, and any oversight by the US Forest Service.

wallup.net

This would spell disaster for forests and the climate. Putting more carbon emissions in the air and out of its natural forest storage is absolutely the last thing this world or communities need!

Oil and gas developers would then be able to clear huge swaths of forests for toxic well pads, roads, and pipelines without much oversight.

If we’re going to save our special places and tackle the climate crisis, we need to stop dangerous oil and gas production in ALL our public lands and waters.

We need our Rainforests, without them animals would be extinct, air would also be hard to come by. Trees and other plants are what give us Oxygen. Please think of our future, please sign the petition to stop oil and gas drilling in ALL our public lands and waters.

Too Much Cruelty In The World

With the recent events that have unfolded, I am really disgusted by the whole situation. A pandemic that could have been prevented if the POTUS took action sooner, and did not evacuate American Citizens from the red zones without quarantine first. (Not Fake News) That’s exactly what he did, before quarantine was even established he allowed them to go to their homes. He also fired the medical experts that could have set up relief for those returning, yet since they were there for the “Obama Administration”, you guessed it, the whole reason he fired them.

POTUS and those in the republican party are refusing to listen to the medical experts, so if ideas do not coincide with POTUS, you become disregarded and attacked. The facts are – Masks and social distance have proven to be effective. Take Pennsylvania for example – cases have gone down because of the Measures the Governor has taken. However, the republican party have been cruel and not leading by example. In fact they have gone without masks for meetings and a majority of them do have COVID-19.

How can people be so cruel to place others at risk to this virus? Does no one understand the severity of this virus? Has no one read the statistics and or long term side effects? Much of the side effects are lung related, losing approximately 45% of lung capacity. I would not wish that on anyone, not even my worst enemy. Yes, sure not everyone gets the severe case of COVID-19 and makes a full recovery, however, what about those who don’t have the immune system to battle this horrid virus? Do we just keep thinking the weak should die off and let the strong survive? How is this compassionate, how is that PRO-LIFE? Simply put it’s not.

Pandemic aside, we then have Police Brutality and lethal force. Yes, more of it is being caught on film. However, it’s not just black lives on the line. White, Spanish and Natives have been cruelly beaten and even have died. Yet the media will not cover that. I want to know why! Why is it the responsibility of ALT-Media to cover these events, when ALT media barely gets any recognition. Since 2017, Whites have been killed by cops 435 times. Spanish 250, Natives 184, and Blacks 340. Other ethnicities – 150. I think we can safely assume, that cops abuse their power and use lethal force on EVERYONE. Everyone is a target where cops are concerned, and it needs to end, sooner the better.

Police Reform has been in the talk for years, and no one could ever agree on a logical way to make reform happen. The fact is police are not trained to deal with mental health issues, or trained to help with disturbances. They are militarized, trained to catch hostile individuals. With police reform, funds would be allocated to social workers, and those in the medical field, which would allow them to be on-call 24/7. On top of this, police would also be retrained. Yet, for some reason – some people see this as a bad thing. It really isn’t, it’s actually a logical and sound way to proceed, to protect people.

With all that aside, I want to address the animal cruelty that took place during the protests and riots. Horses were stoned, by a cruel individual, I don’t remember what state it was, however, how does this help you get justice for anyone? How does tying a dog up and beating him/her to death help either? How is this sending a message for reform or to end brutality with police. It’s not, it’s only making it apparent that you are a sick individual needing to be placed behind bars!

Leave the animals out of this mess.

Unless you are freeing animals from pet shops and finding them homes during this time. Just leave them alone and stop the cruelty. There is way too much cruelty in this world as is. Why add onto the hostile ongoings that are transpiring in front of everyone.

I’m just fed up with it all and I know others are as well. I think people need to be re-educated, period. Humanity has lost their minds, lost compassion and empathy for others. It’s an all about me. myself and I attitude anymore. No one except for a few is thinking – We not me. Truly – this nation is divided. And no POTUS I’m afraid can change this anytime soon.

That’s how much faith I’ve lost.

Humanity and Animal Life Matters.

All Life Is Sacred

All life is sacred – this statement should ring true with the entire human race of our planet. Yet for some, animal life means nothing to them, as they would rather hunt for trophies and or greed. Some say they hunt to sustain their natural life. What is natural about a human, picking up a rifle or bow and killing a defenseless animal? We are no longer of the Neanderthal manner – our brains and digestive tract have evolved passed the need for any meat or dairy product in our diets. Yet media propaganda and forced repetitive food advertisements along with “Professional” big wigs would have you see otherwise. If you were to ask an unbiased dietitian they would inform you the realities of the situation at hand.

“But we have canines”, do we really?










Compare the two photos above, think long and very hard about that statement. Our canines are not for tearing off “flesh or meat”. Our canines are “flat” while apes, tigers, lions and other carnivores or omnivores have “jagged or pointed” canines for tearing the flesh or meat.

You ever notice how you crave vegetables as a side dish because your meat dish just doesn’t seem filling enough. It’s your body subconsciously telling you that is what you should be eating instead of the potentially hazardous meat. Ketchup = Tomatoes, Mustard = made from a mustard seed “PLANT”. Notice that practically all of our “condiments” are plant-based.

“But our eyes are of the hunter type” – That my dear people is an evolutionary throwback, it would look quite odd if our eyes would be on the sides of our heads, like a lizard, so to say I am glad for this throwback.

“Meat gives you protein” – Along with high cholesterol and unnecessary unwanted saturated fats which can cause heart issues.

The healthiest protein you could ingest would be a plant based protein from certain plants you already incorporate with your meals.

Gary Yourofsky – One of the most inspirational speakers for animal rights and vegan life choices made this inspirational speech while visiting the Georgia Tech in 2010. His brilliant insight of factual information changed many lives throughout the world. (including mine)

I am not trying to force anything down any, person’s proverbial throat, I am merely given some insight into what could be accomplished if the absolute truth was or is shown. What could be accomplished would be absolute bliss, where animal lives didn’t have to be sacrificed for sustenance or sheer greed of the human stigma – ( The stigma that “only the rich and powerful will survive”).

Until we realize that all life in itself is connected entirely – Our world will continue to spin into the darkness that our generations before have set us on the path for. Currently, many advocates and activists are fighting a battle with governments to protect our most precious and sacred of endangered species because of poaching and the current administration, removing protections. Until this administration and hunter types realize that animals of this magnitude are not a renewable resource – the only remembrance we will have of such – is photographed in a book or media documentaries.

What needs to be done – is for regulations to be in place, for people to stop killing just because they wish to be seen as a “great” hunter or for monetary purposes and or for trophy kills.
In order for this to happen – we as a community need to push for this change; by attending accordingly meetings to discuss such action, letter writing, protesting peacefully while making valid points stick, while also urging our governing officials to see reason, while possibly making emendations to certain bylaws, statutes and or code/laws.

We also need to research more into the gossip of “Farmers” being paid off to cancel their crops for a substantial amount of funds. To where they turn their once vegetable or fruit orchard into a Dairy/Meat Farm. (Rumours being passed down the line – where I’m led to ask if anyone has tangible evidence of this to come forward. Thanks)

Rome was not built in a day nor was it built by a single person. Therefore, we must all work together as a united front to actually accomplish what needs to be done, for these animals out there in dire need of our voices and perseverance. Never lose faith, never surrender, and never give up on this goal to see that all lives, big, small, wet or furry have a future where they can live while having the ability to be prosperous in nature.
