Fostering animals, why should anyone do it? The short answer is that it will save lives. To expand, animal shelters all around the United States have suffered from overcrowding at one point or another in their business. When that occurs, they have two options: either turn away the new animals being dropped off at their doorstep or euthanize those who have been in the system for “too long”. When you choose to foster, you’re assisting in both traumatic issues.
I am extremely horrified that the Japanese government had not taken any action to stop the production of dolphin meat which contains lethal amounts of Mercury. But the main problem that really annoys me is that people in Taijai haven’t done anything to stop the killing of dolphin even though there was more than enough evidence to imprison every single person involved in the killing of dolphins and production of their meat. However in the documentary, Food Inc. Eric Schlosser interviews farmers that grow their produce naturally and farmers that genetically enhance their products. The reason for this is because there is money involved, if for example it normally takes five months to grow produce, the farmers don’t get the money until it is grown. Although genetically enhanced produced that grows in three months makes the farmer get money two months quicker.
Therefore why should the freedom of animals be taken away for the benefit of humans. People would rather focus on what they want and like rather than what is better for the whole world and everything on it. In 2006, the AETA was passed, allowing animals to be kept in zoos, research facilities or with breeders and then killed for food (Issitt). Animals deserve the right to live the life they choose. They deserve to be free from suffering.
In specific, it is a waste of time and money. For example, scientists spend billions of their country's financial budget over machines, scientific equipment , new techniques and chemical items to examine these tools on animals. Sometimes these experiments fail and they just get rid of all the supplies they have bought. Also, by saying it is a waste of time it means that some animals remain under the process of trying a new chemical training could take a long time to see the result accurately. In addition, some animals immediately die while scientists wait for the chemical material to react and effect on the animal.
Animal welfare has been a controversial subject in recent years. Nowadays, consumers are placing more attention to their consumption of animal product. The fact that there are diverse consumers with dissimilar perspectives on the meat industry makes animal welfare a complex international public policy controversy that also needs to take economical, scientific, cultural and ethical dimensions into consideration. The government can change the consumption behavior of the consumers and the production process of livestock by intervening the market using a ‘carrot’ approach so that the price system will lead the society to an efficient outcome of animal welfare. Since animal welfare is an increasing concern, numerous countries are reconsidering the way animal welfare is embedded in legislation for housing and care of animals.
After the French and Indian war in 1754 England had Great War debts, to be exact 130 million pounds. In order to pay these debts England decided to tax the colonies on the goods that would presumably not anger the colonists. This tax was known as the stamp act. The goods being taxed consist of anything made of paper, playing cards and envelopes including various other items. Because the British parliament did not consult the colonies about this tax placed on paper products, the colonial families decided that they did not want to pay the tax.
After seeing the horrific sanitation issues in the meat processing industry, the president decided that the government needed to step in and provide regulation. He also later signed the Pure Foods and Drugs Act, which banned the sale of food and drug which the government deemed unsafe for public consumption. But Roosevelt wasn’t done improving the public welfare. He strongly believed that the preservation of wilderness was crucial to America’s health and economy. He preserved over 230,000,000 acres of land, setting aside 150 protected forests, 51 federal bird reserves, 4 game reserves, and helping build 24 irrigation projects.
Researchers believe that even more deaths could be attributed to crib bumpers than these studies have shown, as a review of information from the National Center for the Review and Prevention of Child Deaths showed that 32 other infant deaths between 2008 and 20011 could have been due to crib bumper issues, which would raise the death toll to 77. Crib bumper ban recommended Crib bumpers are already banned and not allowed to be sold in Maryland, as well as in the city of Chicago, Illinois. Due to the crib bumper danger, the study recommends the Consumer Product Safety Commission ban the sale of crib bumpers. Additionally, the American Academy of Pediatrics, Canadian Pediatric Society, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have also recommended against using crib
The most money NASA has ever used was during the Apollo missions in the 1960s and 1970s; even then, the taxpayer never paid more than four cents on the dollar (Tyson). Now, only seven-tenths of a penny per dollar is spent on space exploration (Tyson). Private companies like SpaceX are also bringing the cost of rockets down (Mascaro). Also, the Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. is the most popular, most visited museum in the world (Tyson). Eighteen federal agencies fund research on climate change, but only one funds space exploration (Smith
The suspected justifications of why this enterprise is even taking place is because of lack of government involvement, the shifting of blame from consumers to producers, and the minimal job opportunities in the communities. First off, most of the people who generate a livelihood off of poaching belong to organized crime groups. It has been reported in the past few years that terrorist groups partake in this trade to fund their militias. Moreover, poachers who fit under this category travel far and wide to hunt elephants because they have completely depleted their source back home, take Sudan for example. Even Joseph Kony, one of the world’s most wanted terrorists and past leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army, was reported saying that, “No, I want ivory for ammunition to keep fighting” (nationalgeographic.com).
