Besides the fact that Extreme Makeover: Home Edition isn’t very green, I have two big issues with the program. One: I wonder how the family pays for the maintenance and property taxes once the cameras are gone. Two: It makes me blubber like an idiot. Putting all of that aside, it’s nice to see EMHE taking part in an eco-contest.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is launching Educate To Escape, a sweepstakes sponsored in part by Ford, to provide up to $250,000 in eco-friendly improvements to one school.  Along with that, Ford will also give away a 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid to one lucky viewer. The Ford Escape Hybrid boasts 34mpg and uses a combination of electric and gas to help reduce carbon emissions. Sexy stuff!

True, this does smell like a “look how green we are” promotion, but at least they’re putting a quarter of a million bucks into a noble cause. If you’re school needs to be pimped out in green, visit EducateToEscape.com and help Ty “MOVE THAT BUS!!!!!!!!”

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.

Jallikattu was a single issue campaign doomed for failure

Filing a case in the courts is a time-consuming and expensive affair and, sadly, doomed to fail because, by and large, the laws of the land reflect the views of the people.
