Rice and beans anyone
I will always be the first to admit when I have said something wrong so here it is. Last week I wrote about the Humane Society of the United States and called them an animal rights organization. They are not. They are simply human haters. I realize those are strong words but I have a series of strong evidence here to back that up.
Let me introduce you to Jan Hartke, founder and director of the HSUS "global environmental arm," which is a subsidiary Earth Voice International. Hartke has somehow morphed into a climate change expert. It is easy to find him listed as an expert on climate change and he is quickly being placed on executive boards such as "Roots of Peace," where his bio reads like this:
"Mr. Hartke has recently added to his responsibilities by directing the international anti-factory farms campaign. He has received numerous awards for his international work, including awards from the United Nations Environment Programme.
As vice-chairperson of the Clinton Climate Initiative, Hartke is advising city mayors on the issue and co-chaired the 2009 Environmental and Clean Energy Inaugural Ball to welcome in the Obama administration. In addition, he currently serves on President Obama's Enterprise for the America's Board of Directors, which administers the Tropical Forest Conservation Act. He serves on the Board of Directors for the National Council for Science and Environment, which seeks to improve the scientific basis for environmental decision- making. I find that one a little ironic!
Hartke was recently elected President of the Earth Council Alliance. ECA was formed in 1992 at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro by Maurice Strong, the first Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Program."
