The burning season by Cathy Henkel Visual 1 edition published in in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide "Every hour in Indonesian rainforests, an area the size of soccer fields is mowed down and burned. Often this clearing is done to make way for oil palm plantations.

The resulting palm oil is used for cooking, cleaning and even as a biofuel. But the fires farmers set to clear their land have helped to make Indonesia the world's third-largest emitter of carbon dioxide -- exceeded only by the U. A year-old Australian "green" entrepreneur named Dorjee Sun believes he has a solution to reduce those harmful greenhouse gas emissions. He has canvassed the world pitching the sale of Indonesia's carbon credits to polluters in the West. His business model would maintain the standing swaths of Indonesia's rainforests by selling their carbon credits.

Will conflicting health care law rulings head to high court?

Burning Season follows Dorjee Sun on a whirlwind trip into boardrooms around the world - from Starbucks to eBay to Merrill Lynch - as he tries to convince skeptical financiers that his proposal is viable. To carry out his plan, local political leaders in Indonesia must also agree that their forests are worth more alive than dead. Small farmers like Achmadi, who makes a living by cutting down trees to plant oil palms, fear the layers of government officials will be the only profiteers from the carbon credit sale.

Burning Season kindles both sides of the climate divide and explores whether capitalism can step in where altruism has so far failed to succeed. While the Report properly outlines the role of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and dairy in a healthy American diet, it misrepresents the nutritional and health benefits of lean, red meat. Furthermore, the Report's treatment of the topic of sustainability inappropriately extends beyond the intended scope of the committee as well as the expertise of its members.

Specifically, they claimed that a computerized study performed by the defendant was flawed. Several experts testified that the nearby vicinity of homes and high traffic roadways caused it to be a high hazard dam because if it broke it would cause serious damage.

Moriarity v. The LBA was originally enacted in to detect and prevent livestock theft by establishing a regime for recording livestock brands and inspecting livestock primarily cattle to ensure proper ownership. The LBA also created a brand inspection area comprised of the western two-thirds of Nebraska.

Livestock that move in or out of the brand inspection area are subject to inspection and recordkeeping requirements and cannot be transported with the transporter having a transportation permit. Once a feedlot is registered cattle in the feedlot are not subject to brand inspection when they are moved from the brand inspection area. In addition, brand inspection is not required for cattle brought in the brand inspection area from a registered feedlot for direct slaughter or for sale to a terminal market.

Cattle shipped from a registered feedlot are not subject to brand inspection at origin or destination is they are destined for direct slaughter or sale at a terminal market. However, the shipper must have a shipping certificate from a registered feedlot. Cattle that are shipped from a registered feedlot, except for direct slaughter or sale at a terminal market area, are subject to brand inspection.

In essence, cattle moving in or out of the brand inspection area or being sold, traded or slaughtered in the brand inspection area are subject to inspection.

However, cattle shipped to or from a registered feedlot are largely not so subject. The court noted that the LBA merely impact the flow of interstate commerce and does not burden it. Fees on local businesses and services providers are not constitutionally defective. The LBA, the court concluded, did not disparately affect interstate commerce and did not impose a clearly excessive burden on interstate commerce in relation to the local benefits it created.

The court rejected this claim on the basis that the LBA applies to livestock in the range area of the state and all livestock within that area are treated similarly. In addition, no fundamental right or suspect class was involved. The court held that there was a rational basis for the LBA — livestock theft in the area of the state where that was most likely to occur. As such, the LBA was economic regulation subject to rational basis review. The LBA, the court held, was rational legislation by the state. Nebraska Beef Producers Committee v.

The status of the building does not transform the use of the land from an agricultural purpose to a non-agricultural purpose. But, the converse is also true. If a building used for agricultural purposes is located on land that is no longer used for agricultural purposes, the building would then become subject to county zoning. Thus, based on the facts presented, the A. The defendant motioned to dismiss the case or, in the alternative, stay the case pending relevant U. For example, the court pointed out that the plaintiff did not allege that a single ingredient in the yogurt was not natural.

The court pointed out that the plaintiff, rather than claiming that the defendant knowingly used milk from cows fed with modified grains, merely "recit[ed] facts and statistics" about the use of genetically-modified organisms in animal husbandry. Also, the court noted that the plaintiff did not allege "that a single ingredient in the yogurt is not natural. In addition, the court pointed out that the defendant did not affirmatively represent that its yogurt was free of genetically-modified organisms. As such, the court held that this type of conclusory argument could not be nudged over the line from conceivable to plausible.

Podpeskar v. Dannon Company, Inc. In , an animal rights activist went undercover to get a job at an Idaho dairy farm then secretly filmed ongoing animal abuse there. The video was then given to Mercy for Animals, an animal rights group, that publicly released portions of the video, drawing national attention. The dairy farm owner responded to the video by firing the employees who were caught on camera, instituting operational protocols, and conducting an animal welfare audit at the farm. Specifically, Idaho Code Sec. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit agreed.

The court stated that it saw no reason why the state could not narrow the subsection by requiring specific intent or by limiting criminal liability to statements that cause particular harm. The court also held that an easy solution to the First Amendment issue would be to simply strike the word misrepresentation. However, concerning Subsection b that criminalizes obtaining records of an agricultural production facility by misrepresentation, the appellate court reversed the trial court by holding that subsection b protects against a legally cognizable harm associated with a false statement and therefore survives constitutional scrutiny.

The court determined that unlike false statements made to enter property, false statements made to actually acquire agricultural production facility records inflict a property harm upon the owner, and may also bestow a material gain on the acquirer. The appellate court determined that subsection b followed subsection properly followed U. Supreme Court guidance as to what constitutes a lie made for material gain.

This was particularly the case, the appellate court noted, because subsection c limits criminal liability to only those who gain employment by misrepresentation and who have the intent to cause economic or other injury which further limits the scope of the subsection.
