But in the face of the truly terrible suffering of this world, all we can do is try.
During massive floods taking place in Cuttack City, India, in 2011, a heroic villager saved numerous stray cats by carrying them with a basket balanced on his head.

How You Pay Farmers to Watch Their Crop Shrivel Up and Die
Today, lawmakers will at long last begin negotiations on the farm bill. Just one of the many portions up for debate is the federal crop insurance program, which led to a very strange turn of events last year.
During the 2012 drought, some farmers in Texas actually earned more money by planting seeds that they knew would fail—and then collecting insurance—than they would have by planting no seeds at all.
The program keeps farmers limping along through drought years so that when the rains return they will be able to afford expensive GM seeds. So ultimately, the program works in favor of the companies that sell those seeds—like Monsanto.
The worst part: Economists believe that as climate change intensifies and droughts become more common, the insurance program will likely only become more costly to taxpayers.
To learn about more jaw-dropping details of this program—and to read farmers’ stories of the year they planted seeds that they knew full well would never grow—click here. [READ MORE]
Melting’ Starfish Along West Coast Prompts Fukushima Fears
Thank You: http://theresistanceunited.com/2013/10/30/melting-starfish-along-west-coast-prompts-fukushima-fears/
Scientists are attempting to find out why one species of starfish is literally melting in the waters off of Washington state and Canada.
Biologists in Seattle took to the water last weekend to collect diseased and healthy sunflower starfish for testing. Several labs including one at Cornell University will examine and compare samples with the Canadian specimens already being analyzed.
“We’ve got some sea stars that look like they’re melting on the bottom,” Seattle Aquarium biologists Jeff Christiansen said.
Whether the cause is environmental or disease related is currently unknown, but the number of melting starfish increase by the day.
Despite the presence of radioactive isotopes, western governments have continued to import Japanese sea food, even in light of one Canadian study that found cesium-137 present in 100 percent of carp, seaweed, shark and monkfish sold to the Canadian public.
As radiation levels rise, it is likely the EPA will continue to raise ‘acceptable levels’ of radiation in the food supply, concealing the increasing danger of radiation exposure. Bringing this issue to the forefront and taking your health into your own hands by protecting your thyroid are now the best options we have.

Since the beginning of time, human beings believed
that animals experience fear and pain.
Then a deranged “philosopher” created a theory
that they claimed they didn’t.
Big business took his madness and ran with it.
A fresh look at human superiority.
