We know your concerns about the planet and it’s inhabitants. You want to help stop global warming. But what can you do to make a difference besides change some light bulbs? What really is the number 1 cause of Global Warming? People who don’t recycle? Nope. Too many cars? Nope. Planes? How about that steak on your plate?
According to the United Nations, raising animals for food causes more green house gas emissions than all the cars, planes, ships, and trains in the world combined.
Land degradation, climate change, pollution, water shortages, habitat destruction; these are not inevitable forces. The change is easy: all we have to do is tell everyone we know that “Meat’s Not Green”.
Animals raised from meat, eggs, and milk create an enormous amount of green house gas emissions that cause global warming.
Chickens, turkeys, pigs, and cows on factory farms generate billions of pounds of drug laced feces every year. This waste frequently spills over nearby waterways killing millions of fish and causing dangerous affects.
Eating meat is far less sufficient than eating plants. It can take up to 16 pounds of grain to produce just one pound of meat. And because of the need to grow so much grain to feed farmed animals, millions of acres of made up habitat are destroyed and replaced by a single crop. More than 90 percent of the Amazon rain forest cleared since 1970 is used for global meat production.
You can help!
Make a difference by signing Peta2’s petition asking for all meat packages to be labeled with a clear warning that meat is the number one cause of global warming. The consumer has a right to know. Go to http://www.peta2.com/meatsnotgreen to make a change. Video Rating: / 5
