Daily Voice : Protect the Polar Bear Seas!
« Reply #160 on: December 11, 2013, 01:02:17 PM »
Protect the Polar Bear Seas!

The Polar Bear Seas, off the coast of Alaska, are home to a dizzying array of wildlife, including 20% of the world's polar bears, grey whales that migrate from the Baja Peninsula every year, and hundreds of kinds of birds. Alaskan Natives have coexisted with these animals for centuries.



Sadly, this area is in danger: America's Arctic is warming at twice the rate of the rest of the nation. Polar bears now must swim for miles to find food, and Alaska Native communities are finding it harder and harder to maintain their way of life.



And we recently learned that Shell Oil, once again, is trying to drill in America's Arctic. As if all that's not bad enough, the Obama administration is considering allowing even more oil and gas drilling in the Polar Bear Seas for years to come. This would move us away from a clean energy future that decreases our reliance on dirty fuels.



President Obama needs to hear from you: tell him to protect the Polar Bear Seas.

Daily Voice : Stop Trophy Hunting Giraffes
« Reply #161 on: December 12, 2013, 01:03:37 PM »
Stop Trophy Hunting Giraffes

Three sub-species of giraffe are in serious decline or endangered- the West African giraffe, Rothschild's giraffe and the reticulated giraffe. Yet, tourist trophy hunters are paying $3,800 to go and shoot giraffes with high-powered guns and bows. In South Africa, Namibia and Zimbabwe killing them for sport trophy hunting is legal.

Since 1988 the number of giraffes has plummeted from 140,000 to less than 80,000. Giraffes are nearing extiction and have already disappeared completely from countries like Nigeria, Mali and Angola.

Tell the governments in Africa to protect this gentle, iconic animal of Africa before it is hunted to extinction as trophy sport.

Daily Voice : Support Microloans to Help Alleviate Poverty

Support Microloans to Help Alleviate Poverty

Jackline is a farmer in Kenya. She has been running her mixed-crop farm for more than 7 years and produces a mix of sorghum, milk, maize, tea and beans which she sells at the local market. She also operates her own shop selling her products.



She used her $875 loan (gathered on Kiva from 32 different lenders) to purchase a dairy cow, which allowed her to add milk and yogurt to her shop's offerings, bringing in even more income from her business. She plans to use the money to expand her shop even more - and because of her boom in business, she no longer has to worry about the cost of sending her four kids to school.



Microloans are an incredibly effective and flexible way of helping to alleviate poverty. Small loans can change entrepreneurs' lives, the future for their families, and the outlook for their communities.



Â? Add your name to our pledge to show your support for microloans as a tool to help alleviate poverty around the world.Â?

Daily Voice : Help End Dirty Energy

Help End Dirty Energy

Rep. Ed Whitfield (R-KY) and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) have joined forces to draft legislation that would essentially allow unlimited carbon pollution from power plants.



While the EPA is tirelessly working to finally put national limits on carbon pollution from America's power plants, this bill would block them at every turn.



Take Action: Tell your members of Congress to let the EPA do its job.

Daily Voice : Protect Our Waters and Wildlife From Pesticides
« Reply #164 on: December 15, 2013, 01:01:47 PM »
Protect Our Waters and Wildlife From Pesticides

Petrochemicals and big agribusiness are dirty industries. The pesticides they produce and use end up in our waterways and pollute our wild places.

Pesticides cause severe reproductive and developmental harm, cancer or even death in imperiled wildlife. The toxins can also move up the food chain -- potentially ending up on our families' food and water.

Instead of owning up to these dangers, the chemical industry is trying to use the farm bill to roll back the Clean Water Act and Endangered Species Act -- to make it easier to pollute our environment with pesticides.

Right now the Clean Water Act provides simple requirements to monitor where pesticides are applied and prevent pesticide pollution in waterways. The Endangered Species Act has common-sense rules protecting wildlife from pesticide poisoning, especially those animals that are extra-sensitive to pesticides.

Take action now to tell your senators to protect our wildlife and waterways from pesticides and vote against dangerous amendments in the farm bill.

Daily Voice : Tell Congress: Save Homeless Kids From Sex Trafficking
« Reply #165 on: December 16, 2013, 01:08:04 PM »
Tell Congress: Save Homeless Kids From Sex Trafficking

20,000 children are forced into prostitution every year. Almost 50% of these kids are homeless.

Sex traffickers know that homeless kids are easy targets. They know that every child has a breaking point, when they will do anything for food and shelter.

While the U.S. government has been ramping up anti-trafficking programs, it is simultaneously cutting funding for homeless kids and closing shelters. This makes no sense.

Cracking down on pimps and johns is essential, but even more important is making sure the kids involved aren't put in that situation in the first place.

We must urge Congress to provide funding for homeless shelters.

Giving homeless kids a safe place to go will take them out of harm's way and significantly reduce the number of young people trafficked every year in the United States.

Send a message to Congress today: No child should have to make the impossible choice between shelter and dignity.

Daily Voice : Stop the Nightmare of Antibiotic Resistance!

Stop the Nightmare of Antibiotic Resistance!

When we douse bacteria in antibiotics, a few survive and resistance spreads. It happens in our own bodies. It happens in hospitals. It happens in feedlots where antibiotics are overused to promote growth and prevent disease in unsanitary, crowded conditions.



Now, experts at the Centers for Disease Control are sounding an alarm. If we don't get serious about reducing the overuse of antibiotics, we face the end of the antibiotic era.



For the estimated 23,000 Americans who die each year from resistant infections, the post-antibiotic era is already here.



But it isn't too late. Emergency action to reduce overuse in both agriculture and medicine can go a long way toward preserving antibiotics for human health. The Departments of Agriculture and Health & Human Services can take action without waiting on Congress. Tell them to act now!

Daily Voice : Don't Let Wind Farms Kill Bald Eagles!
« Reply #167 on: December 18, 2013, 01:10:33 PM »
Don't Let Wind Farms Kill Bald Eagles!

According to a 2012 Wildlife Society Bulletin study, an estimated 888,000 bats and 573,000 birds are killed each year by windmill blades. This includes dozens of golden and bald eagles and other rare species.


The Obama administration has failed to prosecute wind industries for their violations of the Migratory Bird Act and the Eagle Protection Act, and the federal government continues to subsidize wind power. On Friday, December 6, 2013, the Obama administration said they will continue allowing wind companies to kill or injure these birds with no fear of prosecution for up to 30 years.


Power sources that kill rare native birds and beneficial bats without a care are not "green." Wind power companies must be held accountable for their violations of wildlife protection laws, and should work to monitor their windmills and create barriers to minimize animal fatalities. Please sign the petition to urge the government to take action to stop the illegal killing of wildlife on wind farms!
