Probably more than ever before you hear about the environment and global warming, gas pollution, rain forest and all the bad things humans do while destroying the earth. You think that supporting organizations like Greenpeace, Sierra Club, Amazon etc. you are helping environment. That they are helping environment. But do they?
If you didn’t hear about a new documentary “Cowspiracy- The Sustainability Secret”– I highly encourage you to watch it. “This is the film that environmental organizations don’t want you to see.” Your eyes will open on what is really going on around us, your ears will hear things you probably wouldn’t want to hear. I promise you that this documentary will educate you and make you rethink your daily choices you make.
As producers Kip Andersen and Keegan Kuhn decided to dig deeper into the area everybody is quite and doesn’t want to talk about, it becomes clear that the problem of global warming and pollution is much deeper than we may think. But why nobody wants to talk about it? Why those environmental organizations are quite and don’t point out that actually the main causes of global warming are Agriculture’s greenhouse gas emissions?
“The largest source of emissions within agriculture is enteric fermentation – methane produced by livestock during digestion and released via belches. In 2011, this accounted for 39 per cent of the sector’s total greenhouse gas outputs and increased 11 per cent between 2001 and 2011.”
So yes, it is nice that you switched to hybrid or electric car or you bike more instead of using public transportation and cars. It is nice you turn off the lights, when you leave the room, save the water when your brush your thees. It is all great. But the most important thing you should do is…. become vegan. Stop supporting meat industry that destroys our planet! Look at the numbers of water we need to raise cows for meat, the number of acre of field we need to raise cows, the number of acre of field to raise plants to feed the animals. Those numbers are scary! 1 quarter of pound of hamburger requires 660 gallons of water! Eating 1 hamburger = 2 months of showering!!!! Domestic use of water is 5% of what we use vs 55% used in animal agriculture!
“Global warming is unequivocal, human influence has been the dominant cause since the mid-20th century, and atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases, already at levels not seen in at least 800,000 years, will persist for many centuries(…)
Continued emissions of greenhouse gases will cause further warming and changes in all components of the climate system, [raise] threats from the melting of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets to rising oceans to extreme weather events such as cyclones and heat waves.”
“Limiting climate change will require substantial and sustained reductions of greenhouse gas emissions.”
By adopting plant based diet you help animals, you help yourself, you help the entire planet! Don’t support organizations that are lying to you. By going vegan you are the one who can help our planet! Be the hero! Be the one!
Thank you to those who were involved in making this great documentary! Thank you for your time and effort to show the truth and share it with everybody! We need more people like you guys!
