---- — Let’s put an endto factory farming

Animal agriculture is now commonly known as one of the most significant, if not the worst, contributors to the serious environmental problems/diseases in our world today.

Instead of feeding the world, animal factories degrade the land, divert food crops, waste/contaminate water, pollute the air and fail in providing safe/healthy food for anyone, even the rich.

Instead of promoting agritourism, indoctrinating our children, and defending man’s moral right to kill, Fair Oaks should host a national Animal Agriculture Symposium where experts for and against Factory Farming publicly discuss how we can unite in confronting this issue honestly.

A question thatshould be asked

I wonder if our mayor has thought to ask Pyrolyzer this question: Given that they have actually built a plant in Germany that had a successful run in 2002 that lasted for 15 days, and given that Pyrolyzer is supposed to make such cheap electricity, then why isn’t that plant in Germany making a profit by running 24/7?
