Sewage Pollution and Climate Change are Major Threats to All Life!
Sewage Pollution Threats Continue!
Wildlife continues to live in harmful, polluted waters. Stopping the growing pollution and increasing costs to do so is one of the major issues facing cities worldwide. The necessary upgrades could take over 15 years if not mandated now. Contaminants such as PCBs, DDT, PFOS, PFOA, copper, phthalates, bisphenols, pesticides, microplastics and pharmaceuticals would continue to be dumped into the rivers and oceans!
Did you know that numerous cities, such as Comox, BC, are only planning less effective Secondary Treatments? They have not even applied to all governments for the needed Tertiary Funding! Also, the Comox Valley water treatment system had to be mandated by Island Health because the current system does not comply with provincial surface water treatment guidelines. Years of unhealthy “Boil Water Alerts” will finally end. The new system will finally remove the risk of viruses and bacteria, for a safe supply of drinking water.
Two of the three major threats to endangered orcas, pollution and lack of food, could be significantly reduced. In order to protect people, animals and ecosystems all governments must make Tertiary Sewage Treatment the Law.
Climate Change and Sewage Treatment!
Science Direct wrote, “One of the important processes of the society which is affected by present-day climate change scenario is the wastewater management. Wastewater includes municipal sewage effluents, industrial effluents and urban and agricultural runoff, which without appropriate management could be harmful to human health... the necessity for wastewater management is continuously increasing. However, emission of certain greenhouse gases during the process of wastewater treatment further contributes to the already aggravated problem of climate change. As such, there exists a nonending scuffle between the phenomenon of climate change and wastewater management, each intensifying the other problem.”

Lifeforce 40th Anniversary!
In celebration of the Lifeforce 40th Anniversary we hope to produce a Lifeforce Documentary. Over the decades Lifeforce created unique strategies to help define the new Animal Rights Movement starting in the 80s. Our groundbreaking investigations and campaigns were crucial to lead the way to help protect people, animals and ecosystems. We must raise public awareness of the ongoing need to end speciesism in order to finally bring Peace for All Life!
