      If you would like to participate in an
      effort that has the potential to end the vast majority of animal suffering with
      just a click of a mouse, here is your chance!



      Just follow the link below to project "Hydroponic
      Meat for a Sustainable Planet Earth" and nominate for funding.

      Hydroponic meat research is not funded in
      the United States. To address this issue and start a hydroponic meat research
      initiative, I have entered a project titled "Hydroponic Meat for a
      Sustainable Planet" in the American Express members project competition.



      Top nominated projects will be selected by an
      advisory committee for award candidacy. The top five projects will be awarded
      funding according to popular vote. If awarded, New-Harvest.org has been
      selected as the recipient organization.



      Rational Basis for the Hydroponic Meat
      initiative:

      Globally, livestock production occupies 30% of the
      Earth's land. Animal agribusiness is the primary cause of deforestation and
      habitat destruction. Livestock industries directly contribute to 18% of
      greenhouse gas emissions and share in the ethical burden of annually
      slaughtering over 54 billion animals worldwide. Zoonotic diseases emerging from
      animal farms (e.g. avian flu, BSE) threaten our existence.



      The solution to these problems lies in the
      economical, commercial production of hydroponic meat as an equivalent commodity
      to conventional meat. Hydroponic meat is grown without the body of an animal
      and can potentially be produced efficiently and cruelty-free.



      The majority of our population (97%) are consumers
      of meat. On an ethical and ecological basis it is important to provide
      non-vegetarians with an alternate choice that does not require a lifestyle
      change. Here in lies the rationale and purpose of hydroponic meat production.
      This product is not for vegetarians. Vegetarians do not demand meat for
      personal consumption. Vegetarians however, may decide to support hydroponic
      meat as a cruelty-free alternative for non-vegetarians.



      Traditional vegan advocacy strategies alone have
      been ineffective in reversing the trend of increasing meat consumption. The
      1975 publication of Peter Singer's Animal Liberation inspired the modern animal
      rights movement. Since then, the per-capita meat consumption in the United
      States has increased by 20%.

       

      Please join me in supporting Hydroponic
      Meat for a Sustainable Planet Earth.

       

      Thank you for your consideration.
