Earth Day, Humane Party 10-year Anniversary and Inaugural Presidential Primary

Today is Earth Day, and today is the 10th anniversary of the Humane Party, which was founded on the fundamental ideas of abolition of exploitation. The party’s hundreds of volunteers and thousands of followers see the necessity of such a party when the current political parties always seem to offer more of the same. The Humane Party’s platform is different. It is far-reaching and encompasses ideals beyond safeguarding the environment and ending the suffering of species.

Greenhouse Gas Emissions at 400 PPM:  The New Normal

It seems like every day the normal changes.  Last year was hotter than the previous one, which was the hottest year on record.  Storms have reached greater intensity than the year before.  In some places spring comes sooner with trees budding in January and in others the snow rests until late May, only to see record temperatures in June bypassing spring altogether.  No matter where any of us lives, all of us can claim that the weather is freaky and abnormal.  But why?  Maybe greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere are the reason.

The Hazards of Rising Rates of Meat Consumption

According to the socially conscious Farm Animal Investment Risk and Return (FAIRR) investor initiative, global meat consumption increased five-fold between 1992 and 2016.  This rise has worldwide implications for human health as well as the environment. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) estimates that the average American consumer will eat a record-breaking 222.2 pounds of red meat and poultry in 2018.

Join the Humane Party and Help Us Envision and Create a Vegan World

Back in 1992, The Union for Concerned Scientists and more than 1,700 more independent scientists called on humankind to curtail environmental destruction. Today in 2017, world scientists have released a second warning notice, stating that most environmental challenges “are getting far worse.” Thankfully there is hope. There is the Humane Party, and within the Humane party there is the Economic Transition Team that is diligently working on bringing these issues to light and on creating effective change. Join the Humane Party to help us accomplish our mission.

Distribution of Animals Used for Agriculture and Manure Generated: Ratio of Manure to Land Application–Conclusions and Findings

The Humane Party’s Economic Transition Team has completed its report analyzing the manure generated from animals. The purpose of the document is to understand the daily generation of animal manure due to animal agriculture and its implications. Recommended rates of manure application to farmlands are taken into account along with each state’s total land and farming-allocated land to evaluate whether the amount of manure generated per state is insufficient, sufficient, or excessive to meet the fertilization needs of each state.

Working on Creating a Vegan World: A Rebuttal of “Nutritional and Greenhouse Gas Impacts of Removing Animals from US Agriculture”

In the November 13, 2017 issue of the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Robin R. White and Mary Beth Hall attempt to establish why a hypothetical vegan world is not possible. Their findings do show a decrease in greenhouse gas emissions, but they argue that a diet without animals or any kind of supplementation would be nutritionally deficient. Our mission at the Humane Party and specifically in the Economic Transition Team is to create a United States agriculture and economy 100% free of animal exploitation.
