A Sneak Peek at Jon and Tracey Stewart's Animal Rescue Farm
After months of rumors, it was confirmed this past weekend that Jon and Tracey Stewart are turning their 12-acre farm in Middleton, New Jersey into a Farm Sanctuary site. It will be the fourth such Farm Sanctuary with other locations in upstate New York, and Northern and Southern California.
The Stewart's have worked with Farm Sanctuary for years, especially Tracey, who is a vegan and the editor-in-chief of the online parenting magazine Moomah. Her book, Do Unto Animals, was published a week ago. Last April, Jon hosted Farm Sanctuary president and co-founder Gene Baur on The Daily Show.
Gayle King of CBS This Morning visited the Stewart's last week at their farm for the couple's first interview.

Agriculture is on the front lines of climate change. Whether it's the a seven-year drought drying up fields in California, the devastating Midwest flooding in 2019, or hurricane after hurricane hitting the Eastern Shore, agriculture and rural communities are already feeling the effects of a changing climate. Scientists expect climate change to make these extreme weather events both more frequent and more intense in coming years.
In Long Beach, California, some electric buses can charge along their route without cords or wires.
When a bus reaches the Pine Avenue station, it parks over a special charging pad. While passengers get on and off, the charger transfers energy to a receiver on the bottom of the bus.
