Environmental hint for the winter:

Think ecologically and physically and about your health.
In the winter, the best humidity in a room lies between 45% and 65% relative humidity (relh.).
So, 55% relh. is a good value for your muscous membranes and for you plants!
When you heat cool air, then the relh. falls, because warm air absorbs more water.
(at 22.5°C about 20g or 20ml per m³ of air)
So, when the relh. in your room is 40%, then there are about
((55-relh.)x0.2)g/m³ water missing to obtain 55% relh..

Buy a hygrometer and do not spill electric-energy for drying your cloth in the winter.
Dry them on a stand near the heater and watch the hygrometer.
That`s good for your health, your plants and the climate (and your purse).

How to build a cheap and very well working cold accumulator

An easy way to build a cold accumulator, that works till -21°C, is to mix water with
an appropriate amount of salt. So it will be not completely freezing until -21°C.
Ice has only half the heat capacity of water, but 8 times the melting energy at zero°C.
When you dissolve ~150g salt per 1 liter of water and put it in a plastic bottle or a jerrycan,
then it will slowly freeze from zero to -21°C, because the salt concentration
increases when it freezes and lowers the melting point of the rest.
When you fill the empty spaces in your freezer with this accumulators,
then it will stay cold, even when the electricity fails for a longer time.

How to save energy with your freezer or fridge

Put your freezer in the winter on the balcony. This will save a lot of energy. At zero °C
outside, you will save 3/4 of the cooling energy, when the freezer has -20°C inside!
Compared with a room-temperature of 20°C.
Because it has to pump half of the losses only over half the temperature difference.
If you put a lot of the cold accumulators into the empty spaces, then it can be possible,
to switch on the freezer only after sunset till sunrisewith a clock,
because then it is even colder outside.
It also increases the life-span of the freezer considerably!

Another way to save Energy with the Fridge

is to put plastic-bottles with water outside when it freezes over night.
When you put the frozen water then in your fridge at daytime, then it has not to work.
A fridge has normally above zero °C. So the ice will slowly melt and cool the fridge.
One Liter ice needs 334kJ/Kg to melt. If 1 Million people would do so with 1 Liter each,
it would save 1 000 000 x 334 kJ =~ 92778 kW/h (~54 tons CO2) for free and every day!!
That`s a lot!
For you, it would almost save as much as a 100 Watts bulb needs in 55 minutes!
But you can do this also with two or three liters, of cause.

What some spirits did say about the killing and vegetarism:

"Vegetarian food leaves a deep impression on our nature. If the whole world adopts vegetarianism, it can change the destiny of humankind."

Albert Einstein
"There is just no reason why animals should be slaughtered to serve as human diet when there are so many substitutes. Man can live without meat."

The Dalai Lama
"If man wants freedom why keep birds
and animals in cages? Truly man is the king of beasts, for his brutality exceeds them. We live by the death of others. We are burial places! I have since an early age abjured the use of meat."

"I do feel that spiritual progress does demand at some stage that we should cease to kill our fellow creatures for the satisfaction of our bodily wants."

"Flesh eating is unprovoked murder."

Benjamin Franklin
"Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. He shall eat butter and honey, so that he may know the evil from the good."

Isaiah 7:14-15
"The eating of meat extinguishes the seed of great compassion"

Mahaparinirvana (Mahayana Version)
The 13th Century Zen Master Doyen, while visiting China, asked this question: "What must the mental attitude and daily activities of a student be when he is engaged in Buddhist meditation and practice? Ju-Ching answered that one of the things he should avoid is eating meat. "The salvation of birds and beasts, oneself included - this is the object of Shakyamuni's religious austerities."

Zen Master Ikkyu
"...Behold I have given you every herb bearing seed which is upon the face of all the earth and every tree in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat..."

Genesis 1:29
I do not like eating meat because I have seen lambs and pigs killed. I saw and felt their pain. They felt the approaching death. I could not bear it. I cried like a child. I ran up a hill and could not breathe. I felt that I was choking. I felt the death of the lamb.

Vaslav Nijinsky
"Thou shalt not kill."

Exodus 20:13
It is only by softening and disguising dead flesh by culinary preparation that it is rendered susceptible of mastication or digestion, and that the sight of its bloody juices and raw horror does not excite intolerable loathing and disgust.

Percy Bysshe Shelley, Queen Mab Notes.
"One should treat animals such as deer, camels, asses, monkeys, mice, snakes, birds and flies exactly like one's own son. How little difference there actually is between children and these innocent animals."

Srimad Bhagavatam 7.14.9
We manage to swallow flesh only because we do not think of the cruel and sinful thing that we do. Cruelty... is a fundamental sin, and admits of no arguments or nice distinctions. If only we do not allow our heart to grow callous, it protests against cruelty, is always clearly heard; and yet we go on perpetrating cruelties easily, merrily, all of us – in fact, anyone who does not join in is dubbed a crank.

Rabindranath Tagore, Nobel Prize 1913
"Every act of irreverence for life, every act which neglects life, which is indifferent to and wastes life, is a step towards the love of death. This choice man must make at every minute. Never were the consequences of the wrong choice as total and as irreversible as they are today. Never was the warning of the Bible so urgent: "I have put before you life and death, blessing and curse. Choose life, that you and your children may live."
(Deuteronomy 30:19)

Erich Fromm
"Cruelty to animals is as if man did not love God."

Cardinal John H. Newman
"Plant life instead of animal food is the keystone of regeneration. Jesus used bread instead of flesh and wine in place of blood at the Lord's Supper."

German Composer Richard Wagner (1813)
"Man did not weave the web of life: he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself. To harm the earth is to heap contempt on its creator."

Native American Chief (1854)
"Thou shalt not kill" does not apply to murder of one's own kind only, but to all living beings; and this Commandment was inscribed in the human breast long before it was proclaimed from Sinai.

Leo Tolstoy
"We pray on Sundays that we may have light/To guide our footsteps on the path we tread;/We are sick of war, we don't want to fight,/And yet we gorge ourselves upon the dead."

George Bernard Shaw
"There is not an animal on the earth, or a flying creature flying on two wings, but they are peoples like unto you."

Koran, surah 6 verse 38
"Flesh eating is simply immoral, as it involves the performance of an act which is contrary to moral feeling: killing. By killing, man suppresses in himself, unnecessarily, the highest spiritual capacity, that of sympathy and pity towards living creatures like himself, and by violating his own feelings becomes cruel."

Leo Tolstoy
If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian.

Paul McCartney
Animals are my friends... and I don't eat my friends.

George Bernard Shaw
Nothing more strongly arouses our disgust than cannibalism, yet we make the same impression on Buddhists and vegetarians, for we feed on babies, though not our own.

Robert Louis Stevenson
One farmer says to me, "You cannot live on vegetable food solely, for it furnishes nothing to make the bones with". And so he religiously devotes a part of his day to supplying himself with the raw material of bones; walking all the while he talks behind his oxen, which, with vegetable-made bones, jerk him and his lumbering plow along in spite of every obstacle.

Henry David Thoreau
"For the sake of love of purity, let the Bodhisattva refrain from eating flesh, which is born of semen, blood etc. To avoid causing terror to living beings, let the disciple, who is disciplining himself to attain compassion, refrain from eating meat...It is not true that meat is proper food and permissible when the animal was not killed by himself, when he did not order to kill it, when it was not especially meant for him. There may be some people in the future who, being under the influence of taste for meat will string together in various ways sophisticated arguments to defend meat eating. But meat eating in any form, in any manner and in any place is unconditionally and once and for all prohibited. "Meat eating I have not permitted to anyone, I do not permit and will not permit..."

Lord Buddha (Lanka vatara Sutra)
"If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men."

St. Francis of Assisi
I did not become a vegetarian for my health, I did it for the health of the chickens.

Isaac Bashevis Singer, (quoted in You Said a Mouthful)
A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite.

Leo Tolstoy
I have no doubt that it is a part of the destiny of the human race, in its gradual improvement, to leave off eating animals, as surely as the savage tribes have left off eating each other.

Henry David Thoreau, Walden, 1854
People often say that humans have always eaten animals, as if this is a justification for continuing the practice. According to this logic, we should not try to prevent people from murdering other people, since this has also been done since the earliest of times.

Isaac Bashevis Singer
"Killing is a denial of love. To kill or to eat what another has killed is to rejoice in cruelty. And cruelty hardens our hearts and blinds our vision, and we are unable to see that they whom we kill are our fellow brothers and sisters in the One Family of Creation."

G.L. Rudd, author of Why Kill For Food?
"Vegetarianism is a way of life that we should
all move toward for economic survival, physical well-being and spiritual integrity."

Father Thomas Berry, Fordham University, New York
"The earth affords a lavish supply of riches, of innocent foods, and offers you banquets that involve no bloodshed or slaughter; only beasts satisfy their hunger with flesh, and not even all of those, because horses, cattle, and sheep live on grass. As long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seeds of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love."

"One who, while seeking happiness, oppresses with violence other living beings who also desire happinesss, will not find happiness hereafter."

Lord Buddha, Dhammapada, 131
"He who has renounced all violence towards all living beings, weak or strong, who neither kills nor causes others to kill - him I do call a holy man."

Lord Buddha, Dhammapada, 405
"Anyone familiar with the numerous accounts of the Buddha's extraordinary compassion and reverence for living beings - for example his insistence that his monks strain the water they drink lest they inadvertently cause the death of any micro-organisms - could never believe that he would be indifferent to the sufferings of domestic animals caused by their slaughter of food"

Roshi Philip Kapleau, 'To Cherish All Life'
"The inhabitants are numerous and happy... Throuhout the country the people do not kill any living creature, nor drink intoxicating liquor, they do not keep pigs and fowl, and do not sell live cattle; in the markets there are no butcher shops and no dealers in intoxicating drink... Only the Chandalas (lowest cast) are fisherman and hunters and sell flesh meat."

Famous 4th century Chinese Buddhist traveller Fa-hsien, travelling in India
"I have enforced the laws against killing certain animals and many others. But the greatest progress of Righteousness among men comes from the exhortation in favour of non-injury to life and abstention from killing living things. "

Pillar Edict of King Ashoka (268-233 BC)
"To be non-violent to human beings and to be a killer or enemy of poor animals is Satan's philosophy. In this age there is always enmity against animals, and therefore the poor creatures are always anxious. The reaction of the poor animals is being forced on human society, and therefore there is always the strain of cold or hot war between men, individually, collectively or nationally..."

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
"For my part I rather wonder both by what accident and in what state of mind the first man touched his mouth to gore and brought his lips to the flesh of a dead creature, set forth tables of dead, stale bodies, and ventured to call food and nourishment the parts that had a little before bellowed and cried, moved and lived. How could his eyes endure the slaughter when throats were slit and hides flayed and limbs torn from limb? How could his nose endure the stench? How was it that the pollution did not turn away his taste, which made contact with sores of others and sucked juices and serums from mortal wounds? It is certainly not lions or wolves that we eat out of self-defense; on the contrary, we ignore these and slaughter harmless, tame creatures without stings or teeth to harm us. For the sake of a little flesh we deprive them of sun, of light, of the duration of life to which they are entitled by birth and being."

Plutarch in his essay 'On Eating Flesh'
"If you declare that you are naturally designed for such a diet, then first kill for yourself what you want to eat. Do it, however, only through your own resources, unaided by cleaver or cudgel or any kind of ax."

"The steam of meat darkens the light of the spirit...One hardly can have virtue when one enjoys meat meals and feasts..."

St. Basil (AD 320 - 79)
"I am full of the burnt offering of rams and the fat of fed beasts. I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of goats...Bring no more vain offerings... When you spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes though you make many prayers, and I will not hear you. For your hands are full of blood..."

Isaiah 1:11-15
"...Therefore the Lord will give you meat and you shall eat. You shall not eat one day or two days, or ten days or twenty days, but till it comes out at your nostrils and becomes loathsome to you, because you have rejected the Lord..."

Numbers 11:18-20
"...He who gives permission, he who kills the animal, he who sells the slaughtered animal, he who cooks the animal, he who administers the distribution of the flesh, and at last he who eats the flesh are all murderers and all of them are punishable under the law of karma."

The Laws of Manu (5:51)
"Meat can never be obtained without injury to living creatures, and injury to sentient beings is detrimental to the attainment of heavenly bliss; let him therefore shun the use of meat."

The Laws of Manu
"Having well considered the disgusting origin of flesh and the cruelty of fettering and slaying of corporeal beings, let him entirely abstain from eating flesh."

The Laws of Manu
"Those who never harm others by (physical deeds), by thought and speech, in whatever condition they may be, do not go to Yama's abode. Men who harm other creatures do not go to heaven, in spite of their reciting Vedas, giving gifts, practicing austerities or performing sacrifices. Harmlessness is a great form of piety. Harmlessness alone is a great penance. Harmlessness is a great gift. This what the sages say."

Padma Purana III 31-25-28
"...Ethics has not only to do with mankind but with the animal creation as well. This is witnessed in the purpose of St. Francis of Assisi. Thus we shall arrive that ethics is reverence for all life. This is the ethic of love widened universally. It is the ethic of Jesus now recognized as a necessity of thought...Only a universal ethic which embraces every living creature can put us in touch with the universe and the will which is there manifest..."

Albert Schweitzer
I won't eat anything that has intelligent life, but I'd gladly eat a network executive or a politician.

Marty Feldman
Dead meat rots in your innards and poisons your blood. It leads to many illnesses, makes bad and ignorant.

Reduce the eating of meat. It leads to arthrosis, vessel calcification, high blood pressure and eventually to cancer.
