“Probably the single action … an individual can take to reduce carbon emissions is vegetarianism.

But in all seriousness, our winters are getting milder, one of the more conspicuous signs of climate change. It's up to us to do something about it!

It took me quite some time to make this connection.. The ability to see this connection isn't easy because the information to get to this point is far from common knowledge.

I began taking meat out of my diet YEARS ago but I wasn't until a year+ ago that I took it a step further. I dove into the wonderful world of #plantbased eating after realizing I have the choice EVERY DAY to save 1,100 gallons of water, 45 pounds of grain, 30 square feet of land, the equivalent of 20 pounds of CO2 and an animal's life.. Every single day. How amazing is that?!

Plant based eating is the epitome of conscious consumption💚. A plant based lifestyle is the most powerful tool we have for saving our planet, ending world hunger and vastly improving our health.

A conversation with Dr. Will Tuttle about vegan advocacy (the feed gets clearer at 26:00).

🌱🎉🇩🇪📰 German cuisine might be most famous for its sausages and schnitzels, but a new government rule means attendees at official government functions will instead see a lot more environmentally-friendly food on their plates in future.
_
Barbara Hendricks, Germany’s Federal Minister for the Environment has just banned meat (including fish) at all their official government functions.
_
Hendricks issued a statement saying that only vegetarian food will now be served at the Minstry's events and cited the environmental burden that intensive meat production places on the planet. The email also stated that the ministry has a duty to mitigate against the "negative effects of meat consumption" and must "set an example". It stated that animal agriculture accounts for a significant proportion of greenhouse gas emissions.
_
A statement from Germany’s Environment Ministry explained the move and said that it was not an attempt to preach to the people but rather: “We want to set a good example for climate protection, because vegetarian food is more climate-friendly than meat and fish.”
_
We are long past the time where we can continue to deny the adverse effects that animal agriculture has on our planet. In the past 40 years, our love affair with meat and dairy has wreaked havoc on the planet. We have lost 58 percent of all wildlife from the face of the earth while countless other species are being pushed to the brink of extinction.
_
Animal agriculture is a leading cause of climate change and environmental degradation globally. Cattle produce methane as a byproduct of digesting their food, and methane is an incredibly potent greenhouse gas — 86 times more potent than carbon dioxide over a 20 year period. Globally, the livestock sector alone accounts for 14.5 percent of all human-related greenhouse gas emissions.
_
The UN released advice last year stating that governments should eliminate meat industry subsidies and tax meat production in order to reduce the global rise in consumption and the environmental damage that goes with it.
