streisand_climateWith Bill Clinton having to publicly reveal all donors to his Clinton Foundation as part of his wife’s nomination as Secretary of State, some interesting celebrity names have made the list. Always a longtime fan of the former President, Barbara Streisand gave $500,000 in 2006. According to the filing, she made a special note that it was for what the Clinton Foundation was doing about climate change. Fox News also makes a special mention of Streisand’s quiet donations over the years:

Streisand’s half million dollar check represented about half of what she gave in total for 2006. Even more impressive is looking back through her filings for the Streisand Foundation over the last decade. She’s very quietly given away millions of dollars, evenly and thoroughly to numerous humanitarian, health and arts organizations. Frankly, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences should be rewarding Streisand with its Irving J. Thalberg Award. Who knew? Unlike some stars who toot their charity horns, Streisand has been incredibly mute on the subject.

Earlier this year, Barbara also donated $5 million for the creation of a new cardiovascular research and education program at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. On the green side, Barbara’s husband (Actor James Brolin) is also potentially planning on launching a healthy, organic fast food chain. Read more about that venture here.

Concerned about endangered animals? Stop eating them

Methods of animal conservation that support the exploitation of animals don’t exist for the animals, they exist for human profit.

Why we SHOULDN’T genetically ‘disenhance’ animals

Creating bandaid “solutions” to ethical problems we’ve created doesn’t address the issue at hand

What you can do if live exports disturb you

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
