Oprah goes Vegan - McCartney warns western world
By day two of Oprah’s new vegan life, she was extolling its virtues to her legions of fans.
“Wow, wow, wow! I never imagined meatless meals could be so satisfying,” she wrote.
World leaders are accepting the fact that leading a vegetarian diet is the only way to help the Planet. Recently Oprah went vegan.
“How can you say you’re trying to spiritually evolve, without even a thought about what happens to the animals whose lives are sacrificed in the name of gluttony?’
Its simple, the livestock industry accounts for the largest release of CO2 in the atmosphere - the best and quickest solution to mitigating global warming is to lead a plant based diet.
Dr. James Hansen, climatologist and Director of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Goddard Institute for Space Studies spoke of the urgency of addressing climate change, "We have already passed into the dangerous zone"
He went onto further say that if such gas emission are not reduced immediately "We would be sending the planet toward an ice free stat. We would....be creating a very different planet, and chaos for our children."
The shocking conclusion, documented in a paper2 I have written with several of the world's leading climate experts, is that the safe level of atmospheric carbon dioxide is no more than 350 ppm (parts per million), and it may be less. Carbon dioxide amount is already 385 ppm and rising about 2 ppm per year. Shocking corollary: the oft-stated goal to keep global warming less than two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) is a recipe for global disaster, not salvation.
Paul McCartney is promoting that the Western World adopt a vegetarian diet to help mitigate climate change so that we have a future.
He said recently: “Livestock farming is one of the biggest destroyers of the planet. When you see the Amazon being cut down for hamburger cattle, that’s pretty obvious.”
“And it’s all done in the name of something that benefits humans, when in fact it’s the opposite. It’s all about attitudes, no one thinks they’re the one who has to change.”
