Another Victory for Free Speech and Our Beloved Nonhuman Brothers and Sisters!

Landmark Lawsuit Challenges Big Dairy in Schools

Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) Settlement

Thank you to Marielle Williamson, a 2023 LAUSD graduate, and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, who sued the school system for violating Marielle’s First Amendment Right to Free Speech to criticize dairy products after she was told not to share literature explaining that the dairy industry harms human health, nonhuman animals and the environment.


Cher and Kavaan “world’s loneliest elephant”

Kaavan continues to enjoy Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary thanks to six year campaign of superstar Cher.

Kaavan is a male Asian elephant who was known as the “world’s loneliest elephant” after his companion Saheli died in 2012.

There exist BILLIONS of LONELY, DEPRESSED, TORTURED (factory farms, etc.), innocent, sentient nonhuman (farm, wild, domestic) beings who deserve to be rescued. 

Let’s all do our parts!

UN definition of food systems transformation as Reduction NOT Elimination

During the UN SDG Food Systems Transformation session on September 17, 2023, I learned that “food systems transformation” is defined as the reduction of nonhuman agriculture rather than the elimination of nonhuman agriculture for two reasons according to a UN chief economist:  protein (primarily cow’s milk) and carbon emissions.

First, with respect to protein and cow’s milk, the UN chief economist to whom I spoke falsely stated that human beings need cow’s milk. The Truth is that there exists no reason that human beings cannot be weaned (from their own mothers’ milk or cow’s milk) like all other species. If human beings are stealing cow’s milk, then what are the baby calves who need to gain 400 pounds drinking? Not only do human beings not need cow’s milk, it has proven detrimental to human health. (See plethora of posts throughout this site.)

Second, regarding carbon emissions, UN FAO statistics provide a limited picture of livestock’s full climate impact. FAO research is not peer reviewed which is the number one rule of research. Research must be peer reviewed to count. FAO’s latest numbers were produced by the third version of its Global Livestock Assessment Model (GLEAM), a tool FAO has been refining since 2009. The new decreased estimates do NOT mean the world is successfully mitigating emissions from nonhuman animal agriculture. Rather, the FAO has been changing the parameters to measure them. 2021 study found significant discrepancies between real world measurements of methane and FAO’s modeled versions.

Specifically, the Count All Data Coalition (CADC) reminds scientists, economists and academicians that nonhuman beings who breathe CO2 must be counted.

In addition, the UN does not count 70% of deforestation (action of clearing a wide area of trees.) Deforestation is responsible for 15% of greenhouse gas emissions. FAO excludes one of the most important ways nonhuman animal agriculture exacerbates climate change, the immense amount of land it requires. Livestock uses 75% of the world’s agricultural land (including land farm nonhuman animals live on and land devoted to growing crops to feed them.) FAO also ignores the major carbon opportunity costs of the massive land use of nonhuman animal agriculture. FAO does not count the opportunity cost of nonhuman animal agriculture’s land use (a massive 40% of our planet’s habitable land area). Furthermore, FAO does not factor in significant climate benefits we would receive if we freed up some of the land now dedicated to livestock farming and allowed forests to return, unlocking their potential as “carbon sinks” that absorb and sequester greenhouse gases from the air. Freeing up land would allow large scale reforestation and native ecosystem restoration.

Rewilding is a form of ecological restoration aimed at increasing biodiversity and restoring natural processes (aspires to reduce human influence on ecosystems.)

Nonhuman animal agriculture is responsible for 87% of global emissions.

UN Data
FAO estimates nonhuman animal agriculture (production of meat, dairy, eggs) has been decreasing.
and accordingly, CO2 emissions have been decreasing;
2015…..nonhuman animal agriculture accounts for 6.19 billion tons of CO2
2013…..nonhuman animal agriculture accounts for 7.10 billion tons of CO2
Methane is now 27X as potent as carbon dioxide (CO2). (Previous IPCC estimate was 34X.)
Nitrous Oxide is now 273X as potent as carbon dioxide (CO2). (Previous IPCC estimate was 298X.)

Raw Data
Number of nonhuman animals raised for food
2021…..83 billion land nonhuman animals slaughtered for food (mostly chickens)
2011…..68 billion land nonhuman animals slaughtered for food (mostly chickens)
2006…..55 billion land nonhuman animals slaughtered for food (mostly chickens)

Legal Limitations
US EPA has been blocked from using its funds to measure livestock emissions and a bill introduced in the Senate in 2022 aimed for an outright ban on monitoring methane emissions. Nitrous oxide is difficult to measure and model.

Awaiting confirmation of Final Bill before posting herein.



Elephants have the right to liberty in Ojai, California!  The city of Ojai made legal history for nonhuman beings by becoming the first city in the US to recognize the legal right of a nonhuman being following a 4-1 vote by the Ojai City Council.  Introduced by Council Member Leslie Rule and developed with and supported by the Nonhuman Rights Project, the ordinance defines and protects elephants’ right to liberty.  Thank you to Leslie, Professor Wise and the Nonhuman Rights Project TEAM.  We are five minutes before the miracle…Let’s GOOOOOOO!!!


United Nations Headquarters SDG Action Weekend in NY on September 16 and 17, 2023

I enjoyed the Honor and the Privilege of attending the United Nations Headquarters SDG Action Weekend in NY on September 16 and 17, 2023, and it proved AMAZING!!!
I learned where I need to focus my advocacy and legislation, and met the appropriate contacts to commence dialogues.
For example, I learned that the UN defines “food transformation” as reducing, rather than eliminating, “meat and milk” because according to one of my contacts, less developed countries do not have access to the nutrition that developed countries do and they need “protein” from nonhuman flesh and secretions.  Additionally, he claims that the elimination of factory farming is not necessary to sufficiently reduce carbon emissions.
Of course, we Know the two aforementioned statements remain FALSE.
My contact and I agreed to communicate via email to share statistics regarding protein and carbon emissions in order to engage in productive discussions.
I attended the conference because, after I finally drafted a proposed charter amendment for the UN (as the time is ripe), and emailed same and supporting documentation to almost all of the 193 members (except four countries that remain involved in heated controversies to the point where Americans should not visit their countries although one head of state surprisingly attended the UN GA Summit), I realized my proposed charter amendment resolved six of the 17 UN SDGs as follows: 

1 No Poverty

2 Zero Hunger

3 Good Health and Well-Being

13 Climate Action

14 Life Below Water

15 Life on Land

In addition, I learned I should attend the UN RBA meetings.
The three UN Rome based agencies (RBSs),
Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO);
International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD);
World Food Programme (WFP);
offer a vast range of knowledge, financial and technical expertise, and discuss policy issues related to food security, agriculture and nutrition.

Resolution of Six of United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs created 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the purpose of a World Wide, Universal Call to Action to create a more Fair, Just and Equitable world.

New Hope Now’s proposed Charter Amendment Resolves the following six (6) of the 17 SDGs:

1 No Poverty

2 Zero Hunger

3 Good Health and Well-Being

13 Climate Action

14 Life Below Water

15 Life on Land

Lifestyle Diseases

It remains OLD news that the consumption of nonhuman flesh, byproducts and secretions CAUSES all of the following issues:

(1) degenerative diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, autoimmune diseases;

(2) chronic illnesses such as arthritis, digestive disorders, acne, obesity, impotence;

(3) zoonotic origin global pandemics;

(4) hatred and discrimination as humans ingest adrenaline and cortisol hormones of nonhuman beings who experienced fear and terror minutes before their own horrific torture and death as they stood in line to watch their own fate as they witnessed same of their loved ones;

(5) Bad Karma: If we kill them, they will kill us. (See aforementioned four issues.) Why would a human being do this to himself?

The new medicine is the study of LIFESTYLE DISEASES all of which remain PREVENTABLE AND REVERSIBLE.

Collective Consciousness Meditation Exercise

THANK YOU, EVERYONE, for all you do for all sentient, nonhuman beings every single day.


I became vegan about 13 years ago when the Lord put a Soul Mission (nonhuman rights) in my heart.  Since I did not understand the Lord’s words or my calling, I spent the entire year of 2010 researching and learning about the health, environmental and ethical issues regarding the standard American diet, and, by the end of the year, started eating a plant diet after my shock, ie, factory farming, that left a hole in my heart.  (Looking back, I now Know of a couple of signs about my Mission that I overlooked during my childhood.)

I served at DoD under the Reagan administration, then completed a Bachelor’s degree in Government from the University of Virginia and one year of law studies (at an undergraduate level) including legal research and writing at the UVA School of Law Library.  I served at the VA AG’s office, in private law firms and in a large oceanfront development company.  (My forte’ was research and writing as well as trial preparation.)

At a youthful 61, I still may attend law school for the purpose of advocating legal personhood for all nonhuman beings.

A few years ago, I set up New Hope Now 501c3, and created a website and youtube videos for the purpose of Education and Awareness of Nonhuman Rights, health and the environment.  I also drafted Nonhuman Rights bills and met with Congressional counsel to Advocate the bills and request sponsorship for Legislation.

Finally, after years of writing to billionaire philanthropists, applying for foundation monies and researching grants, but not receiving funds for my Rescue Sanctuary, at the end of 2021, I became an Insurance Broker to protect families and their homes by specializing in mortgage protection and, of course, to fund my 501c3.

To this very day, I cannot bear to view the horrific pictures of the Hell we call factory farming.  I have so much Empathy for all sentient, nonhuman beings; and I just want to fix this Nightmare immediately.  I do not want any sentient, nonhuman being to suffer another minute.  When someone asks me “how I can eat a plant diet,” I explain the indelible pictures in my mind and the hole in my heart.  It’s quite easy despite the fact that my previous diet of three decades was a traditional bodybuilding diet,ie, almost entirely nonhuman flesh, by-products and secretions.

The following Meditation Exercise for the Collective Consciousness is based on the principles of the Law of Attraction because if we send POSITIVE energy into the Universe, we can MANIFEST Nonhuman Rights and Liberation.  [When I first became a vegan, nonhuman rights advocate and activist, I shared graphic, horrific photos with everyone I know, and cried and argued constantly until I watched Earthling Ed facilitate logical, Socratic conversations with people (reminiscent of my law courses in college) to make THEM THINK (and experience cognitive dissonance.)


Meditation Exercise for the Collective Consciousness:

Every morning, as soon as you open your eyes, before you get out of bed to use the bathroom, while you are still in your subconscious mind; AND

every night, directly before you fall asleep, as you are entering your subconscious mind,

with your eyes closed…

See a teeny, tiny, extremely bright white or yellow or green or violet light inside your heart…pause;

See the light gradually encompass your whole body…pause;

See the light expand and fill your entire room…pause;

See the light expand and fill the whole house or building…pause;

See the light expand and fill the entire community…pause;

See the light expand and fill the whole state…pause;

See the light expand and fill the entire country…pause;

See the light expand and fill the whole continent…pause;

See the light expand and fill the entire world…pause;

Now, FEEL (the Love, Joy and Peace) and VISUALIZE ALL sentient, nonhuman beings in the entire world as free, healthy, happy, and communicating with human beings!!!


Yes, we CAN manifest Nonhuman Rights and Liberation for all Sentient, Nonhuman Beings in the World.
