Petition signed.

Livestock creates enormous amounts of pollution.
We all need to get after these mega-corporations to put a stop to the pollution
of our drinking waters.

Ty, Nancy.

NOTED & SIGNED. If you think CAFOs are bad for the water table just imagine what they are like for the tortured, maimed, agonized PIGS who are forced to 'live' [sic!] in these awful concentration camps for animals. BOYCOTT ALL FACTORY-FARMED MEAT AND IF YOU REALLY GIVE A DAMN GO VEGAN. Check out the website & Facebook Page for Farm Sanctuary and see how animals can be legally rescued from the industry, and how initiatives against factory "farming" are growing all over the country. HELP OUT.

Yeah, tell 'em. But I really do think something ought to be done about factory farms. You go for the CAUSE, not the SYMPTOMS.

Hateful, sick people.

Factory farming should actually be called Animal torture. Avoid buying cheep meat, because it is actually more expensive (animals, environment, consumers), spend the same amount on occasional animal and environmental friendly farming, also much healthier for people

Signed. We have a pressing need for vegetarian living, restoration of land and water to Nature, to return much to indigenous wild life and people. Crow Crops organically and we will see a future, a green world, happy life.

We must cut down or eliminate meat consumption. If we don't factory farms will continue to strive.

The epa should be closing these torture centres we shouldn't have to worry about animals if they were treated according to old farming methods we're just too greedy and want cheap food all the time. .

THE EPA "NEEDS TO COME DOWN ON FACTORY FARMS WITH A BIG HAMMER" because the small ma pa farmer had to install mats which would hold "ALL" of there animals waste an "NOT" allow it to run off into streams and rivers an the round water water table. You why the EPA will not do a thing about factory farms 1. they have no balls 2. all the kick backs someone is making a lot of money INSIDE THE EPA 3. YOU DON'T MASS WITH THE FAT CATS MONEY IT IS ALL ABOUT THE "MONEY"

What a masochistic world we have become.
We are poisoning our food and water, and killing OURSELVES.

If we don't figure out a way to stop the population growth, there will surely, be another end, and new beginning for our planet. Then, another god will be created.
Gee, if only we could see it happen.

Charlene Rush you hit the nail RIGHT on the head with all the chemicals in the food it is NOT FOOD just quick grow fast junk food but like i said in my post the EPA will not do a thing you do not mess with the FAT CAT'S MONEY AND IT IS ALL ABOUT THE "MONEY".

An for the over populations of HUMANS on this earth why not offer 1 million or 1/2 million tax free dollars to get spayed or neutered i know a lot of people would go for it an BEST OF ALL YOU CAN STILL GET IT ON BUT NO BABIES. =^..^=
