Major international news channel airs story about meat and the environment.
In a segment called “How Meat Is Making the Planet Sick,” CNN’s award-winning journalist Fareed Zakaria, interviewed The New York Times columnist Ezra Klein, who is a vegan, about the “tremendous consequences” of meat on human health, the climate, and animal cruelty.
The journalists discussed the facts that animal raising causes mass deforestation, displaced wildlife and global warming, while also increasing the risk of pandemics and antibiotic resistance. Mr. Klein said, “There is a lot of animal suffering here but stacked on top of that is actually a lot of human suffering, too.” Mr. Zakaria said he himself is actively reducing his meat intake, as Mr. Klein also recommended the acceleration of plant-based meat development.
Thank you, CNN, Fareed Zakaria and Ezra Klein, for this much needed discussion on the most urgent topic. In Heaven’s support, may all media members inform citizens to make the wise switch to the vegan diet.
