Our planet is crumbling to pieces and you don't give a Fu*k.

Don't tell me you don't enjoy having these things - clean drinking water, fresh air and nutritious food or living for that matter.

It is absolutely no secret that Animal agriculture is the MAIN cause of Climate change. People tend to shut off their brain the same way when someone mutters the words "work", "vegan" or "aren't you on a diet?". No one wants to hear it but truth is, no one will be able to hear anything if we carry on the way we do.

Would you enjoy standing, eating and sleeping in your own feces for your entire life?

So, for people who aren't aware of this catastrophe - Animal agriculture is basically eating away at the only home we have. Literally, methane gas is eating our atmosphere! Waste leakage being exposed into clean water, contaminating fish and natural biospheres, THE AMOUNT of water used to sustain Animal agriculture is completely insane, let me give you some figures here. Animal agriculture is responsible for using 34-76 TRILLION GALLONS of water PER YEAR!

The act of Animal agriculture is at an alarming pace leading our home to complete lifelessness.
This planet would THRIVE without human beings.

  • 2,500 gallons of water are needed to produce 1 pound of BEEF.
  • 477 gallons of water are required to produce 1lb. of EGGS.
  • Almost 900 gallons of water are needed for 1lb. of CHEESE.
  • 1,000 gallons of water are required to produce 1 gallon of MILK.
  • Animal Agriculture is responsible for 20%-33% of all fresh water consumption in the world today.
  • Livestock takes 1/3 of the Earth's ice-free land!!! Let that sink in...
  • 500 Nitrogen flooded DEAD-ZONES causes by livestock operations.

To feed these animals - ACRES AND ACRES of forest need to be DESTROYED!

This industry is KILLING our planet. Where are you going to immigrate to once all our resources are tired?
The voice in most peoples head right now goes as follows, "I'll be dead, so it won't matter.", "Humans were made to eat meat and I can't live without the flesh of anther being.", "This person needs to get laid and chill."

We are facing the LARGEST MASS EXTINCTION in 65 years!
All for the digestion of something that once ate, pooped and reproduced once too.

After I watched Cowspiricy I was devastated, as I realized the situation. Humanity deserves to be wiped out. It is not about stopping all meat and animal-related food, it is about reducing it to minimum. My grandmother told me that when she was young the family would eat meat 2-3 times a year during feasts when the animals were sacrificed. Think about that. For all that have not watched the movie, I strongly recommend it. @whatalife did you watch the movie just recently?

Thank you sooooo much for this comment @gabchik!! Much appreciated. And people have to watch these documentaries. People need to WAKE UP.
I've watched them all. Must watch. Namaste.

Great Post

·

Thank you! Sending positive vibes your way!

Brilliant! Inspiring and enlightening! I suppose it's great i am now a vegetarian and no longer contributing to the global disaster. Followed, resteemed and upvoted. Good day!

·

This is such an incredible comment. Thank you so much @steam-roller. Much appreciated. Namaste.

My pleasure! We root for the same team and as team mates we fight for the same goals. Keep at it! I enjoyed reading this post with a smile.

I also noticed how difficult it was to live without meat. I would compare my first two weeks to the struggles off a smoker who decided to give up cigarettes. So, i now believe there are chemicals in the meat which keeps us attached but i haven't gone as far as finding something conclusive as off yet.

Very true.

Good blog, we need to educate the people about this

·

Absolutely @talisman10. 100% Never stop raising awareness. It's the only thing we can do.

Very true.

·

Namaste.

I think you're right some people don't care. It is difficult to put my head around the whole issue. Most people get emotional, and launch data that is not always factual [on both sides of the issue].

like does not help anyone.jpg
I was always taught, if you believe in something - do something.

If you think climate change is an issue, do something. Spend your weekend planting trees, for example. There are all kinds of examples of people doing just that ... one tree at a time.

Alan Savoy in his TED talk, showed just planting trees is not enough. You need plants and animals in concert to heal the land, which can heal the climate.

https://www.ted.com/talks/allan_savory_how_to_green_the_world_s_deserts_and_reverse_climate_change

When you put how you feel into action, you make a difference in the world. If you sit at home and 'feel' something, the only thing that changes is you. The rest of the world continues to turn, and turn, and ...

One of the few presentations on climate change that resonates with me is Gabe Brown's presentation on treating a farm as an ecosystem. Now here is someone who walks the walk.

Here is the first part of the presentation, if you 'feel' passionately about climate change, there are some good and effective actions to be taken. Watch all 5 parts, if you dare.

And remember Love and Care are what you do, not what you feel.

PS Cows are not the problem, mismanagement of cows is perhaps.

Cool

Thanks for spreading the word.

·

And I will never stop! Not even for a moment. @shapeshifter. Thank you for your support.

Better a comfortable lie than an uncomfortable truth right?

·

100% @bynaomi.

I think people is stoping eating meat bit b bit. I know it is not enough, but human changes are slow. 20 years ago almost every person eat meat, today this percentage is going down. I know there are more and more people in the planet, but may be human consciousness is growing up inside us.
There is hope!

·

Absolutely @trenz. We just have to keep trying. Keep raising awareness on the consequences and keep living these lives to heal this Earth that has given us sooooo much for nothing in return!

·
·

I think, humanity is following the right steps, very slowly, yes, but we are awakening.

·
·
·

Progress.

Very good material

·

Thank you! More coming!

Nice article...very good post

·

Thank you so much!

yea as some others said, Cowspiracy did the same thing for me. what sells people are statistics because you cant often argue with them. Great post. I appreciate the depth and detail that you go into. Keep it up. Look forward to more.

·

That's very true. But sometimes I really wish it wasn't about selling people. It's sad that we who know the truth have to really dig into people's minds to finally get them to see it. Finding their compassion is another thing. So stats really do the trick yes. Thank you for your comment. I really appreciate it. Namaste

always welcome

You are so right, nice to see that there are still people in the world that care :-)
make me happy. I'll keep and eye on you, thanks

Fantastic article @whatalife. For a while now I've known that it was wrong to consume the flesh of another creature. Sadly until recently I was lazy and arrogant. Scientifically it's been shown that a vegan is healthier as a couch potato than a omnivore. And in order to keep eating meat and be as healthy as a vegan a human would have to run at least a half marathon every day essentially.

For this reason and basic morality I don't see me eating meat for a long long time or ever.

·

That's so good to hear! The transition is tough for many, and I'm not going to lie - I struggled to give up diary but it is absolutely 100% worth it.

·
·

It's taken me a long time to even get this far. The only times I use anything like milk or eggs is in baking for the time being. I've started cutting back my cheese usage too. But I know from my partners experience that cutting out dairy makes so much difference, it's just finding alternatives where I live.

·

Yeah, that's the issue for most. And expenses. But you really have to tap into your mind and ask yourself all the questions to what you are doing and why. Really dig deep into your conscienceless and you'll never look back again. Something like baking will make you laugh.
All about changing the mind and putting heart into it.
