Trifecta

Among the objections that animal agriculture is necessary are those which reference sustainable farming. They say humans has always used animals in its farming practices and therefore we ought to as well. The fact is plain however, that under equal conditions farming plants is always more efficient.

Livestock and their byproducts account for at least 32,000 million tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year, or 51% of all worldwide greenhouse gas emissions.

“Livestock and Climate Change:

What if the key actors in climate change were pigs, chickens and cows?”

FACT or FAITH

Science has shown, both (1) that climate change is real, and (2) that it is caused by human activities. Overwhelmingly, the scientific community has come to the point that neither of these are disputed facts—by anyone with any credibility—but people still pretend as though determining these two facts is still in progress. Meanwhile, the

 

Ask a climate scientist if they "believe" in climate change and they will try not to laugh in your stupid face...

 

...I don't mean your face, I mean anyone

Likewise, the fact that animal agriculture is the number one cause of:

 

 • Deforestation

 • Drinking water pollution

 • Oceanic pollution and

 • Methane Emissions

 

Is becoming overwhelmingly common knowledge, which is disputed only by skeptics and fringe people. Methane is the biggest contributor to global warming, animals are the biggest source of methane.

 

So, why aren't all climate scientists Vegan?

Environmental Facts

 

METHANE IS THE NUMBER ONE GREENHOUSE GAS OF CONCERN

LIVESTOCK GENERATE MORE METHANE THAN ANY OTHER SOURCE

 

METHANE HAS A STRONGER WARMING EFFECT THAN C02

METHANE DISSIPATES FASTER THAN CO2

 

FISHING PRACTICES ARE GOING TO STRIP THE OCEANS OF FISH BY 2048

 

ANIMALS GENERATE MORE THAN 17 TIMES THE AMOUNT OF SEWAGE WASTE THAN HUMANS GENERATE AND NONE IS TREATED

 

THE TOP DRIVER OF GLOBAL DEFORESTATION IS FOR LIVESTOCK GRAZING

Remember, from the ETHICS article, there is no right and wrong. sometimes things with negative effects are the best option. In this case animal agriculture is, however, providing absolutely no benefits to balance against its catastrophic negatives.

TAKE HOME:

Raising animals is destroying the planet's biosphere in three main ways: atmospheric pollution, deforestation, and aquatic pollution.
