5. Meat free Monday Canada

Canada is the #4 biggest polluter on earth, yet has a relatively small population. Canada reputation for being a dinosaur in the Climate Crisis must change ASAP.

This petition calls for Canadian officials to take immediate action by adopting “Meat Free Mondays” and promoting the many health and environmental benefits of the pure vegetarian (vegan) lifestyle to the general public

LIVESTOCK’S ROLE IN GLOBAL WARMING IS HUGE

According to a 2006 report by the Food and Agriculture Organization of The United Nations (FAO), entitled “Livestock's Long Shadow”: The FAO report found that livestock production causes 18 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions, including nine percent of all carbon dioxide emissions, 37 percent of methane and 65 percent of nitrous oxide which is 296 times more potent than CO2 as a global warming gas. According to Dr. Kirk Smith, a member of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and professor at University of California-Berkeley, methane is 100 times more potent than CO2 within 5 years of being emitted.

Scientists across the globe have recognized that climate change is happening so fast, human civilization is under threat if we don’t do something within the next few years to significantly reverse the trend of global warming. At the same time, researchers have also realized that although CO2 is the most prevalent gas by weight, even if we were to achieve a zero carbon economy today, the earth will continue to warm hundreds if not thousands of years.

For this reason, if we want to preserve the planet for our children’s generation, we need to reduce those gases and aerosols causing the greatest effect on global warming in the short term, thus giving us time to develop CO2 reduction technologies that can be commercially deployed.


RAPID PLANETARY COOLING SOLUTIONS:

In March 2009, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stated that in order to achieve rapid cooling in the short term, we need to reduce methane, ozone (the second most prevalent gas after methane), and black carbon. Reducing the consumption of animal products is the single fastest way to reduce these emissions.


• Reduce Methane: Livestock are the single largest source of human-caused methane in the US and on the planet, and 2/3 of it dissipates from the atmosphere in about 10 years. Note also that the IPCC estimated that even if we were to change the feed of animals and capture methane from manure lagoons, by 2030 we would only reduce 9 percent of the methane from agriculture, so these methods are not viable options for seriously reducing emissions rapidly.
• Ozone, the third most prevalent gas after methane, and CO2, depends upon methane as a building block. Because it dissipates out of the atmosphere in a few hours or days, as soon as we reduce breeding of livestock and the numbers decrease due to lower demand, we will see planetary cooling within hours or days.
• Black carbon is 800 times more potent than CO2, and NASA scientists have begun to realize black carbon plays a role in the melting of the Arctic and Antarctic. Brazilian scientists measuring black carbon in Antarctica found greater levels of black carbon than NASA estimated, and estimated 70 percent of it came from South America, where the single largest source of black carbon is the burning of the rainforests to create crops and grazing for livestock. Livestock are responsible for over 80% of Amazon destruction in Brazil.

MEAT REDUCTION AROUND THE GLOBE

Ghent, Belgium has shown leadership and recognized the importance of promoting vegetarianism as a solution to addressing climate change and reducing its carbon footprint by ask its citizens to go meatless one day a week.
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/8046970.stm

Other countries and institutions are also recognizing the need to promote pure vegetarianism (veganism). The United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS) will be cutting meat (and dairy) from the menus of hospitals across the UK in an effort to cut costs and carbon. Its one part of NHS hospitals strategy to reduce carbon emissions throughout the hospital system.

Following Paul McCartney's Meat Free Monday mission in the UK, Israeli restaurants are also participating in going veggie for at least one day a week.

VEGAN RESTAURANTS ARE BOOMING DUE TO STRONG DEMAND

Most people have become aware of the health promoting effects of a plant-based diet, and want to reduce their consumption of animal products but 1) subsidies make meat and dairy cheaper and 2) restaurants do not offer them enough vegan options to delight their palate. Their desire is reflected in the growth of vegan restaurants and vegan options in food service.

In spite of the economic downturn, Restaurant & Institution Magazine has noted in several articles in the last year that vegan restaurants are booming.

Cruzer Pizza in Los Angeles demonstrated this dramatically in May 2009 when they added vegan cheese and veggie meats as pizza toppings and their sales went up by 63 percent in one month.

ENDING WORLD HUNGER
If you want to stop 1 billion people from going hungry at night each day; If you want to stop the needless deaths taking place every 5 seconds due to starvation then a vegan lifestyle is the solution to solve these dyer diet driven situations due to the inefficient use of resources directed towards animal agriculture. Grain currently fed to livestock is enough to feed 2 billion people. According to a recent report by Compassion in World Framing, "[c]rops that could be used to feed the hungry are instead being used to fatten animals raised for food." It takes up to 16 pounds of grain to produce just 1 pound of edible animal flesh.

Animal agriculture is having detrimental impacts on the health of the environment as well as on human health; thus reducing our consumption of this carbon and methane intensive product as an effective solution to halt climate change.

So please sign this petition and forward it to you friends and family.

7. Treasure Planet Special Edition DVD

Treasure Planet was released on DVD on April 29, 2003, and has since been discontinued. However, Treasure Planet has not been seen on any list to read that it has been locked in the Disney Vault, nor has it been seen on any list to read that it will be re-distibuted at any point in the future.

Judging by trend, if Treaure Planet has been locked in the vault, it will be re-released ten years after. Which means its approximate release date should be sometime in 2013.

This petition is in support of Treaure Planet being re-released by its estimated future release date, and for it to be re-released as a true Disney collector's edition or special edition movie.

Thank you.

8. Save The Planet

The vision of Save The Planet is to contribute towards the creation of a Planetary Peace Culture looking to life and common humanism as the core values for a sustainable society.

During the last few decades, a radical change has occurred in humanity's awareness of itself. In simple terms, we have, over the millennia, translated ourselves from "oneness to aloneness".

The truth is that all life on the planet is connected. This newly acquired state of aloneness and alienation causes considerable discomfort. this initiative attempts to understand what we have become and illuminates our future potential.

Humankind has reached a state of development in which old modes of thinking and behaving threaten to destroy our planet. This is becoming patently obvious to people of all political and religious persuasions. We are living through a global crisis in which only a profound revolution can save us from total self-destruction. Those of us who are dedicated to the preservation of life must play a prominent part in this revolution, which calls for a substantial change in our manner of thinking.

On social, environmental and health fronts we are confronting a critical transition. We are facing the results of an epistemology which focuses on material and rational values, human supremacy and competition for domination. Will this transition be into chaos and destruction or will it be into the new paradigm based on spiritual, ecological connectedness and cooperation.

Save The Planet aims to contribute towards this next great global step - The Final Frontier, acknowledging the common ground of humanity and its connectedness with all life.

Save The Planet is an Initiative which aims to create a global alliance of individuals and organizations dedicated to building a world of peace in which we all live in freedom, harmony, cooperation and co-prosperity.

We have come together as concerned Global citizens realizing that with increasing Global population requiring more and more resources with tremendous inequality of distribution our planet is reaching breaking point in terms of economic and ecological crises.

This is having profound social and cultural effects. We require urgent ecological, social, economic and political solutions to problems which affect billions of people if we are to survive sustainably.

Save The Planet calls for spiritual, ecological and holistic world views, derived from perceptions of connectedness and interdependence.
The essence of a sustainable future lies in the quality of the individual and their positive contribution to society. Optimization of health and lifestyle for every person is the key to our future.
Will you register your ownership of the Planet by signing our petition , that we may widely promulgate this message in order to take action to Save The Planet

Save The Planet is dedicated to creating a world model which:
1. FORMULATES a program to save the earth for future generations.

2. RECOGNISES the necessity for global cooperation and awareness to address global problems.

3. HONOURS the basic dignity and wholeness of each person.

4. BRINGS TOGETHER - on a Global and Non-Sectoral Basis the means of making contact with others involved in diverse aspects of global healing and concern for planet Earth through the use of global communications networks.

5. BRINGS TOGETHER PEOPLE FROM COMMERCE AND INDUSTRY who are able to deliver presentations which energise an entire global commercial community to develop "new ways", whereby we can reverse the demise of planet Earth.

6. ADDRESSES the Global Environment Problem directly and implements solutions and aid strategies in ways which governments cannot.

7. PRESENTS NEW TECHNOLOGIES which are environmentally friendly, conserve energy and water and encourage organic and innovatory farming.

8. ENHANCES THE COOPERATIVE EXCHANGE OF INNOVATIVE KNOWLEDGE for the future, where the role of industry is paramount through speakers, representatives, displays, technology and sponsorship.

10. Stop Euthanizing Animals while in Submission

Animal Planet succeeds too often and while the animals are being brought in for health checkup if they are of a certain breed usually Pitt Bulls they get Euthanized before they complete their health status..or more often if a animal is too thin and has a biting habit due to being mistreated by co-owners they also get Euthanazed..to all respect of Animal Planet I am assured that they take into consideration of these animals but is to why they suggest Euthinzation is beyond me some of these animals are healthy..they just need training, like a lost child you have to re-introduce the reality of patience.

11. Save Our Planet

Global Warming--some people believe it, some don't. But in reality, global warming is happening, and we need to stop it before it spins out of control.

According to Arctic Climate Impact Assessment, 400,000 square miles of Arctic sea ice have melted, which is about the size of Texas.
In 2030, Glacier National Park will have no glaciers left, according to U.S. Geological Survey predictions.

Global warming is or will affect all of us.

12. Planet Earth and the U.N. belongs to God!

As an international consultant for entrepreneurial and social development, with more than 20 years of expertise; I had the opportunity to formulate for the European Commission (EC/UE), a innovative project to foster competitiveness of micro and small enterprises in El Salvador, which is now underway.

The UE spirit to finance that project is to support entrepreneurs to reach economic sustainability, prosperity, and a satisfactory life quality, in order to contribute for an integral development in our nation, that will lead us to a global market niche. And the ultimate goal of that visionary spirit is to build a world with equity and more opportunities to live.

A very important area of my expertise has been gained from international training and projects implementation; and one of the most important learnings I was in Taiwan, Republic of China; a nation with kind and laborious people, innovative mind, loyal heart, and with a sound spirit of entrepreneurship and firm beliefs.

Now, back to the spirit of that project I formulated for the EU; a guessing thought arise in my mind: Why we in the world pretend to develop our countries excluding other nations from the international politic, social, and economic scenario?. Something wrong is in the mind of leaders who decide to act in that way. And that misunderstanding, comes from their heart, because they forget God, the only one owner of this planet, the only governor above all nations.

God wants all the humankind to be his truly sons and daughters, and for that purpose He will remove any obstacles; including those ones who deny Taiwan, Republic of China as a member of the United Nations organization.

Progress can not be built excluding others. World sustainability can not be built on foundations of political ego and unreasonable decisions about the human rights of others.

Well here in Australia Planet Terror and Death Proof will NOT be shown "Back to Back" which is LAME!

The film is a double feature consisting of two feature-length segments bookended by fictional trailers for upcoming attractions, advertisements, and in-theater announcements.

Internationally, Planet Terror and Death Proof are being released as separate films, and will be released approximately two months apart.

According to the poster artwork for each film's release in the Netherlands, the fake trailers for Death Proof will be directed by Rodriguez, while those for Planet Terror will be by Tarantino. No mention has been made of the trailers by Roth, Wright, or Zombie.

14. Stop Global Warming

I cannot convince everyone to help stop global warming, but I know something that can, people say one movie can't change the world, but I think this one will.

I highly reccomend you see this movie, it's called "An Inconvenient Truth". I'd say global warming is the most important issue of anything that has ever happened, more important than terrorists or, well, everything! And anyone that thinks global warming is a load of sh** is a bastard and I hope they die of heat exaustion.

There are all these shows on TV about human life after the year 2100, but if global warming continues and if we don't do anything about it then 2100 is marked as about the time that everyone and everything on Earth will die because the planet is starting to boil! And it will keep getting hotter and hotter and hotter and hotter and hotter and hotter and hotter and it won't stop there it will keep going even if the human race and all other life has been killed off by it, it will keep getting hotter because our self running machines are still there burning up the planet.

Soon earth will be a ball of fire (literally) orbiting around another ball of fire, the Sun, if this hasn't convinced you then why don't you go to the cinema and get a big box of popcorn and a large coke or any other drink you want, maybe a packet of chocolate or anything you want and sit down and watch "An Inconvenient Truth" because it will change your life and anyone's life that watches it.

16. Reinstate Pluto as a Planet

On Thursday August 24, scientists voted. They agreed that Pluto is no longer a planet, because it does not meet the criteria of all of their new laws. Law#3 states: "The planet has cleared the space around it's orbit."

Pluto was demoted, to a minor, or "Dwarf" planet. Now there are only eight planets in our Solar System.

Textbooks, diagrams, and teaching procedures will be changed, and our Solar System will be altered. This petition is for reinstating Pluto as a planet, and "saving" our Solar System.

21. A Campaign to save the Rainforests

We are campaigning to save the remaining Rainforests of the world from being destroyed. With this petition and your signature, which will make a difference, we will show the governments of the world that they can no longer ignore the growing problems that are facing the Earth. Without the lungs of this planet global warming will be a very serious issue with which we shall have a point of no return in the coming future.

Some governments are not taking the necessary steps to ensure the welfare of this planet and its inhabitants and some may not realise the importance of the rainforests to the world at large.
So what is so important about the Rainforests? Trees themselves suck up carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and then release oxygen, whereas we in turn as humans do the opposite we breathe in the oxygen and release carbon dioxide, with an ever increasing population we need the trees to balance human activity.

The major contributors to global warming are fossil fuels releasing carbon dioxide, fossil fuels are omitted from cars, lorries, planes, and anything that uses combustion. It is reported by scientists in the last 450,000 years, carbon dioxide has not risen as much as it has since the Industrial revolution

The importance of the Rainforests are their positioning, placed within the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn they lie on the Equator which receives the most sun.

With the trees not being destroyed carbon dioxide is absorbed, oxygen is released and the sun's rays can bounce back into space because of lower levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. But even in this ideal situation all countries have to reduce their CO2 emissions.

With the Rainforests destroyed, oxygen is not released and carbon dioxide is not absorbed leading to higher levels of this gas in the atmosphere. The sun's rays then hit the Earth and cannot bounce back into space due to these high levels, thereby heating the Earth which also has an effect on the inside of the Earth.

Due to this destruction and global warming, the weather patterns are changing and becoming more irregular and more severe.

Please sign our petition. We don't want our children and their children's life to be determined by people with closed minds. We have to think ahead to the next seven generations.

As our forefathers fought for our freedom it is our turn to secure the future for the coming generations.

STREET VIOLENCE - is at an all time high, and the suicide rate has sky rocketed.

CURE FOR CANCER - My city has built a new cancer research center employing over 1000 people. Cancer creates jobs, crime creates jobs, drugs create jobs - the government wants jobs, not a cure.

SEASONS COLLIDING - It's called THE GREENHOUSE EFFECT caused by mankind. If the angels were here they would be disgusted. (They are, and they are).

24. Abolish Smokers to Another Planet

I vote to rid our planet of the dirty, stinking smokers who have little regard for others when they light up.

It only takes one smoker in a room to destroy 100 other people's fresh air. It only takes one smoker to kill not only themself but numerous others with passive smoking. It only takes one smoker to create a burden on the health care system, which takes money away from the people who need it (and haven't contributed to making themselves ill). I have no compassion for the rights of smokers, because no smokers have any sense of responsibility for any one else when they light up (let alone themselves).
