temperature increases from global warming are caused by
increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases , which
result from human activity such as
factory farming, fossil fuel burning,
Feedlot cattle are routinely implanted with
growth-promoting hormones, and they are fed
unnaturally rich diets designed to fatten them
quickly and profitably.
A standard beef slaughterhouse kills 250 cattle every hour. The
high speed of the assembly line makes it increasingly difficult to

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond
measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the
world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around
you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let
our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are
liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
