It’s official: Governor Rick Perry is on Mother Nature’s list!

The Texas governor recently announced plans to sue the Environmental Protection Agency on behalf of the state over it’s decision to regulate greenhouse gases as a pollutant. I mean, really? REALLY?!!

During a press conference, Perry stated that regulating such gases would be an act of “federal overreach,” and accused the Obama administration of  “using sweeping mandates and draconian punishments to force a square peg of their vision into the round whole of reality.”

2 points for using the word “draconian.” -4 points for this ridiculous lawsuit.

Talking Point Memo suggests Perry’s motives may be political, stating:

“Perry is currently locked in a heated GOP primary battle for re-election. He enjoys a healthy lead over Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX), but the race has lately been shaken up by Debra Medina, a far-right darling of the Tea Party movement, who has taken off in recent polls.”

What do you think about Perry’s decision to sue the EPA? Is he a good witch or a bad witch? Chime in and share your thoughts!

Prisons profit from exploiting life and labour

Most young workers don’t want anything to do with manual labour jobs in meat and dairy, and as a result, a large majority of agricultural workers are marginalized people

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.
