Saving Sweet Beagles from torture in the UK

Will Young handcuffs himself to Cambridgeshire dog-breeding centre
- BBC News

Singer Will Young handcuffed himself to the front gates of a facility that breeds dogs for laboratory research.

He joined animal rights protesters from "Camp Beagle" campaigning for the closure of MBR Acres in Wyton, near Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.

The 42-year-old said: "People are unaware there is still animal testing in this country and it is not needed."

I lived in England over 2yrs, in '89-'90 and '91-'92 and had the occasion to listen to an after HighTable discussion on the royals from someone who had a casual association with one of them. I'll just say that it didn't enhance my opinion of them.

Btw, that's a most impressive first post! Welcome, LittleStar!

- NASA, 01/13/09

Each child born in the United States will add about 9,441 metric tons of carbon dioxide to the carbon legacy of an average parent. The study concludes,

“Clearly, the potential savings from reduced reproduction are huge compared to the savings that can be achieved by changes in lifestyle.”
