Meat and Global Warming

Animal agriculture is devastating for the planet for it contributes to global warming at alarming quantities. For example, just in Brazil over 75% of methane and over half of deforestation come from livestock. It is appalling that 55 billion animals are killed for food every year around the world, and as a result, their raising has become unsustainable. According to a new study by the UN Environment Programme the quickest and most effective way to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases is by transitioning to a plant-based diet, which would have an immediate effect on climate change.

Christians, upon learning about the catastrophic consequences of animal agriculture on the planet, should be the leaders in the movement to restore the environment. We believe we have a sacred responsibility and privilege to be good stewards of God's Creation, and thus, adopting a plant-based diet should be imperative, aside from being a joy since it shows compassion and love for farm animals.
