- There is an old saying in English - don't shoot the messenger! The messenger is just someone who gives you the message. How you chose to respond to it, is entirely up to you. But it seems reasonable to consider the message carefully without going off half cocked. When you receive a message - it could even be your daily horoscope - do you freak out or do you consider the information carefully? And then perhaps make a judgement call? An informed call? So why is it that people so often automatically react with such fury when a vegan says that meat eating is not a good idea? Why do many reject the message and the messenger? Eating animals is such a very bad message to spread. Firstly, you should grasp that Animal Agriculture is the single biggest contributor to Climate Change. If left unchecked, it is going to make our planet uninhabitable but that will only happen after a long, hellish period that will make The Game of Thrones look like a Sunday in the park. As a result of Animal Agriculture, the rainforests are being razed, waterways are polluted with sewage from thousands of animals confined in what amounts to a concentration camp, only worse. When those waterways flow into the ocean, it creates ocean dead zones from all the toxins in the water - there is no sea life. The air around these farms is so bad that those who live around them, often the poor and most vulnerable who can't move away, suffer from diseases which range from airway infections to cancer. And that is often also the fate of those who don't want to consider the message and eat animals - they end up sick with common Western diseases like diabetes, obesity, cancer, heart disease - which cannot be healed by Big Pharma. So back to the message. We need to stop Climate Change and the best way to do that is to take meat off your plate. We are petitioning a great Climate Change crusader, Pope Francis who nailed his colors to the mast in 2015. But, he has not yet spoken out on the link between Meat and Heat.
