Global Warming & Omnivore Man

"Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet." -- Albert Einstein

Joseph Dillard Writes:

While I am happy to see the rising number of articles on Global Warming at many news sites that are awakening people to the reality of imminent catastrophic change that is upon us, too few articles are making the connection between diet and global warming. Gore doesn't address it in "An Inconvenient Truth." I just read a great call to energy self-sufficiency on Kos and it has nothing on the impact of nutritional decisions on global warming. This is surprising, since the consumption of cows, lambs, chickens, pigs, fish, shrimp, and shellfish is the largest personal contributor to global warming and the one easiest to change, since diet is totally a matter of personal choice.

I think the lack of emphasis on diet has to do with how deeply entrenched eating habits are culturally, socially, and personally, in terms of personal sense of well-being and self-worth. Nevertheless, this is probably going to be the Next Big Awakening. People pretty much are buying the need to change to florescent bulbs and make their next car purchase the most fuel efficient one they can find. They are not yet ready to embrace the idea that they can do without meat and not only do well, but do better than they are doing right now.

Consequently, there needs to be a major educational push addressing this correlation. PETA has some excellent materials to this end to help people envision a happy, healthy vegetarian life:

We are going to witness a revolution in consciousness away from eating animals well before we see man abandon warfare, looking at it in the same way that we presently view those who advocated slavery.
