- THE GOALS OF AIR -

Even if only 10,000 readers sponsor AIR with just $10 per year, AIR can:

  • Employ a small team of reporters to produce in-depth, probing articles with smaller articles in between.
  • Buy small ads in mainstream media to bring in a broad spectrum of readers so that we’re not just preaching to the choir.
  • Build the AIR Scholarship Fund for Animal Journalism, encouraging and training students to focus on animal issues
  • With more reader sponsorship AIR can employ more reporters, buy more ads, and do more to bring up the next generation of animal journalists.

Can’t spare the buck? Then please SHARE THE AIR. Spread the links far and wide. Page views matter!

Help us prove that animals deserve fresh AIR.

Have a nonprofit animal rescue group?

    Binnen het kringloopkompas mis ik een bdooreeling van de bodemlevenkwaliteit en biodiversiteit van bodemleven. Het zou kunnen dat dit beter hoort bij biodiversiteit, maar daar lijkt het alleen te gaan over biodiversiteit boven de grond en niet in de grond. Dat biodiversiteit in de grond belangrijk is mag blijken uit het volgende: Als niet omgezette drijfmest wordt geinjecteerd onstaan anaerobe verrottingshaarden in de grond. Het huidige onderzoek naar bodemleven maakt geen onderscheid naar type bacterie of schimmel en laat derhalve geen verandering zien in aantallen bacterien of schimmels. Maar het maakt nogal wat uit of je een bacterie hebt die melkzuur maakt of een die de lijkengiften putrescine en kadaverine produceert of een schimmel die vitamines produceert of fosfaat vrijmaakt ten opzichte van een schimmel die mitotoxinen produceert. Juist onder anaerobe omstandigheden krijg je zulke negatieve ontwikkelingen van het bodemleven. In een bodem met een rijk bodemleven, een bodem met een grote diversiteit aan bodemleven, wat voornamelijk aeroob werkt , krijg je omstandigheden die ik omschrijf als vallend onder een andere wet, namelijk de wet van de toenemende meeropbrengsten. Op ons bedrijf zie je dan dat een negatieve fosfaat balans dan geen probleem meer is. Wij hebben een fosfaat benutting van meer dan 150% en toch neemt het PAL getal in onze grond toe en wel met 7,5 punten in 4 jaar tijd. Dit kan alleen als het bodemleven goed functioneerd. Het zou goed zijn als hier parameters voor worden ontwikkeld en als dit meegenomen wordt in het kringloopkompas.

      Certainly I like your web site, however you need to check the spenillg on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spenillg problems and I find it very bothersome to tell you. However I’ll definitely come back again!
