People go reason for different reasons. Arnold Schwarzenegger recommends to cut down meat from one’s diet after he had been advised to do so by his physicians. After following their advice, he stated that he started to feel great. There are others such as James Cameron who went vegan because of environmental reasons. Whatever the reason might be the benefits are awesome.
After the president of the United States decided to unfollow the Paris Climate Agreement arguing it would make the United States less competitive, the US have become the only G20 country to disregard this agreement. As a matter of fact, the US could easily meet those goals by making one single dietary change: scientists from the Oregon State University found out if US citizens would replace beef by beans the US would meet its 2020 greenhouse-gas emissions goals.
It’s always a pleasure to hear about individuals who decide to go vegan. By now, there are even entire cities that are considered to be “vegan” cities because of the vast possibilities they offer to visit vegan restaurants or purchase vegan foods. In fact, the capital of Germany, Berlin, is even being awarded to be the vegan capital of Europe. However, this country is relatively small in comparison to huge countries like China for example.
Whitman Edmiston is a poet from Nashville. He writes and films spoken word poems about environmental issues. Watch his poem on climate change that talks about how a plant-based diet can save our planet. It’s awesome!
Currently, about 7.3 billion people live on this planet. This number is supposed to rise up to 9 billion people by 2050. Some experts even estimate the world population to rise up to 10 billion people by that time. So, why is this so critical and how is this dramatic surge supposed to be handled? Those 9 or even 10 billions people are going to have to eat.
Unfortunately, too many people still seem to deliberately ignore the fact that climate change is becoming an increasingly crucial issue. Scientists agree by now that the entire ecosystem is going to collapse if people keep living as if there is no tomorrow. In fact, mainstream media want this undeniable truth to be ignored as long as possible and they still seem to have the power to do so.
Unfortunately, there are still too many people who don’t seem to be aware about the impact of meat consumption and dairy products on gas emissions and climate change. The impact is huge and even exceeds the impact of the entire aviation industry on gas emissions. Very interestingly, most food that are linked to climate change often prove to be unhealthy, especially when consumed in large quantities.
It seems that scientists have made the impossible finally possible: Due to intensive research and via sophisticated technology they have been able to create “vegan meat” as they use to name it. Of course, the term itself sounds very contradictory but the taste of it proves the opposite. By replacing livestock with plant proteins this is without any doubt not only a milestone but a revolutionary research result.
The Great Gatsby and the Wolf of Wall Street has decided to offer the Hindu nationalist group to ban beef his full support by attending a massive movement in the UK that is going to take place on July 31. There are more than 10,000 people expected to join this rally. While the Hindu nationalist group’s motivation to organise this movement is because of religious concerns and beliefs, Leonardo DiCaprio’s purposes are to boost awareness about animal rights, climate change and other environmental issues.
Due to a research paper published by Oxford University going vegan would save millions of lives per year by 2050. As a person’s decision on his or her diet habits has a great impact not only on his or her health but also on the entire environment, the Oxford University found out that going vegan would cut $1 trillion in costs linked to climate change and healthcare.
