Burlington, Vt., just became the first city to go completely renewable 

With electricity prices rising across the country at the fastest pace in years, the city of Burlington, Vt., looks well-prepared for the future.

On Monday, the largest city in Vermont announced that it now has 100% renewable energy — from biomass, wind, hydro — to meet the needs of its 42,000 residents.
It actually makes economic sense


The home of Phish!  They must be responsible for this happy news as they are the source of all awesome power and light energy in this(my) world. 😉

It’s often a topic brought up amoungst ethically minded people: If you rescue hens, what do you do with the eggs?

Well this is the answer, you feed them back to the hens. They are not your eggs to take and the hens lose many vital nutrients constantly producing the eggs, so it’s best to feed them back to them.

Fact #4: Lobsters not only feel pain – they can anticipate it and learn to avoid it. Just like us. In fact, these misunderstood creatures are so sensitive, they can become anxious and ‘comfort eat’ (sound familiar?) How much do you have in common with lobsters? You might be surprised … 6 incredible lobster facts: www.AnimalsAus.org/PqE

I love lobsters so much seeing them on people’s plates is horrid

We had a lot of trouble with western mental health workers who came here immediately after the genocide and we had to ask some of them to leave.

They came and their practice did not involve being outside in the sun where you begin to feel better. There was no music or drumming to get your blood flowing again. There was no sense that everyone had taken the day off so that the entire community could come together to try to lift you up and bring you back to joy. There was no acknowledgement of the depression as something invasive and external that could actually be cast out again.

Instead they would take people one at a time into these dingy little rooms and have them sit around for an hour or so and talk about bad things that had happened to them. We had to ask them to leave.
