Devastating Effects of Global Warming

Scientists are trying to predict the possible devastating effects of global warming on the flora and fauna on Earth. According to the UN Convention on Biological Diversity, "Climate change is forecast to be become one of the biggest threats to biodiversity."

The UN report in March, 2006 stated that humans are responsible for the worst spate of extinctions due to destruction of habitats, expanding cities, pollution, deforestation, global warming and the introduction of "invasive species".

The UN also reported that 20-30% of plant and animal species assessed so far are likely to be at greater risk of extinction if increases in global average temperature exceed 1.5 to 2.5 Celsius" (2.7 to 4.5 Fahrenheit).

Factory farming is responsible for 18% of the gases that contribute to global warming. Industrial agriculture is polluting the environment, contributing to health problems and to the suffering of billions of animals every day. The transition to a plant-based diet potentially holds solutions to some environmental problems. We have a sacred responsibility and tremendous privilege to take care of God’s creation, and our choice of diet is an essential part of it.
