of the United Kingdom’s already established emission goals during a
February 3 conference, Soil Association Policy Director Lord Peter
Melchett said that these will be met only if consumers reduce their
intake of pork and poultry alone by at least 75%.
stated, “It's ludicrous … not to talk about consumption when we're
talking about environmental sustainability.” Meanwhile, he also
highlighted the benefits of organic farming, saying that a recently
conducted study found that if all the farmland in the nation went
organic, the soil could absorb 3.2 million tons of carbon, or the
equivalent of removing nearly 1 million cars from the road.
appreciation, Lord Melchett and Soil Association, for your encouragement
of the transition to meat-free, organic living. May we soon herald a
vegan world for the vibrant stability of our precious Earth.
Master Ching Hai has frequently advocated organic vegan farming and
adoption of the same planet-cooling diet, as highlighted in an October
2009 climate change conference in Formosa (Taiwan).
Supreme Master Ching Hai:
Without the needless animal industry, not only will we gain forests, we
can also have organic vegan farmlands to grow real, decent food for
humans, and like the forests, these farmlands can also absorb a lot of
heat from the atmosphere. http://www.fwi.co.uk/Articles/2010/02/03/119820/Consumers-need-to-eat-less-meat-says-Soil-Association.htm http://www.meatinfo.co.uk/news/fullstory.php/aid/10134/Soil_Association_calls_for_UK_consumers_to_eat_less_meat.html http://www.soilassociation.org/Whyorganic/Climatefriendlyfoodandfarming/tabid/215/Default.aspx
And a global shift to organic vegan
practices could mean 40% of all greenhouse gases absorbed as well, apart
from the 50 plus percent that we eliminate through the terminating of
the animals raising practice.
World governments could save tens
of trillions of US dollars, tens of trillions of US dollars if everyone
be veg and plant organic. So you see, 50% less from no more animal
industry, 40% less carbon dioxide from organic farming, then we will be
singing, our world will be saved.
