Ethical Eating * Environmental and Food Justice
Livestock agriculture is the biggest cause of global warming, producing more greenhouse gases than cars, trucks, planes, trains and all other forms of transport combined. Our oceans are being emptied of life to provide fodder for chickens and other factory-farmed animals. Factory-farmed animals are slaughtered under conditions that would constitute a criminal felony if perpetrated against a domestic dog or cat, or wildlife. A few large agriculture/industrial corporations routinely place profit above animal welfare and environmental justice. This is a call to change the way we think and feel about our food choices which have a lasting effect on our planet.
