James Cameron: Want to fight climate change? Go vegan.

James Cameron, famed director and well-known climate change activist, has a message for the masses: go vegan to fight climate change.

 

Cameron, who has been vegan for four years, spoke at a climate change summit in Los Angeles earlier this week about the impact of food systems and diet on climate change.

 

In an exclusive interview with Fortune, Cameron explains:

The thing that became abundantly clear to us when we met with the experts who are working in nutrition and energy sustainability and climate change is that we can’t actually meet our emission goals if we don’t address animal agriculture, and that’s the thing that’s been left out of the conversation.

This message is crucial because many people who care about the environment still have no idea that raising animals for food is so incredibly destructive.

 

But consider this :

Going vegan immediately cuts your CO2 emissions in half.

It takes 2,500 gallons of water to produce just half a kilo of ‘beef’.

80 percent of land deforested in the Amazon is for raising cattle.

Factory farms grossly contaminate rivers and ground water.

While the widespread negative repercussions of animal agriculture is overwhelming, Cameron’s message is one of hope:

The simple resounding message is you will be healthier and your planet will be healthier based on a very simple thing that you can do today. And you’ll also save money because eating a plant-based diet is just frankly cheaper. It’s cheaper to produce plants. It’s less carbon footprint, less water footprint, less money footprint and better for you.

Of course, one of the best reasons and the most ethical one, to ditch animal ‘products’ is to prevent unnecessary animal suffering and death.

Fishing facts that will make us never want to consume fish again.

  • For every kilo of shrimp on our dinner table, 52 kilos of other sea animals are killed and tossed back into the sea.
  • When we buy shrimp from Thailand we support slave labour, men are bought, kept on fishing vessels, and forced to do 20 hour shifts.
  • There are no legal requirements for the humane slaughter of fish (not that, that makes a difference, since there is no such thing as ‘humane slaughter’).
  • In tuna farms, small tuna are dumped into netted pens, fattened on pellets of concentrated fish flesh, and killed if they don’t die first from parasites.
  • 70 – 80% of the salmon marked ‘wild’ is actually farmed.
  • In 55 years, humans have managed to wipe out 90% of the oceans top predators. These include sharks, Bluefin tuna, swordfish, marlin, and king mackerel.
  • If these current trends continue, researches predict that agriculture will outgrow the supply of fishmeal by 2020.
  • A 2006 study of catch data predicted, if fishing rates continue apace, the globes fisheries will collapse by 2048.
  • Imported farmed shrimp is often filthy, containing antibiotics, chemical residues, mouse/rat hair, and pieces of insects.
  • Research has shown that fish feel pain and stress, and fishing practices show evisceration, starvation and asphyxiation.
  • Farmed salmon has 10x the amount of cancer causing organic pollutants than wild salmon.
  • Farmed salmon is grey in colour, a pink colour and a fishy smell are artificially added.
  • Chicken faeces is one of the main ingredients in farm fish feed.
  • Farm raised mussels contain 6x more dibutlyin than wild mussels. Dibutlyin is used in PVC plastics and can impair immune system functionality.
  • Between 2005 – 2010, 25% of food borne illnesses caused by imported food, involved seafood.
  • 31.5 million tonnes of fish caught from the ocean each year is ground up for animal feed.
  • 86% of fish is imported, half of those imports are factory farmed.
  • 300,000 whales, dolphins, and porpoises die each year after becoming entangled in fishing equipment.
  • Around 73 million sharks, are thrown back into the ocean each year, with their fins cut off.
  • 27 million tonnes of fish is thrown away each year. That’s enough to fill the Titanic 600 times.
  • Farmed tilapia in  China are fed pig and goose manure – this poop contains salmonella.
  • If you were fed a plate of sushi alongside all the animals that were killed to get it to you, the plate would be over 1.5 meters wide.
  • In 2009, illegal antibiotics were found in three types of imported fish from China.
  • In Vietnam, fish is kept fresh with ice made from bacteria filled tap water.
  • More than 28,000 sea turtles are captured each year in the skimmer trawl nets used to catch shrimp.
  • 50% of swordfish caught are tossed back. 77% of those tossed back are already dead.
  • Globally, illegal fishing is estimated to be worth as much as 126405500000.00 South African Rand.
  • 20 of the worlds albatross species are under threat from illegal fishers.
  • The fishing of wild salmon impacts 137 species.
  • 20% of the weight of tuna catch is ‘chucked’ back as bycatch. Casualties typically include: turtles, rays, dolphins, sharks, and endangered albatross.
  • Longlines with baited hooks can extend up to 81 kilometres. These attract and kill a huge range of sea mammals.
  • Sharks kill 12 people per year. People kill 11,417 sharks per hour.
  • 90% of the oceans large fish have already been fished out.
  • In a year, Scotland’s fish farming creates as much nitrogen as the sewage of 3.2 million people.

The fishing industry is astronomically large, and it’s a sad fact after years of overfishing the world’s seas have been left in a situation where demand far outstrips supply. Fishing have caused untold levels of pollution, destruction and injustice. There are hundreds of notions to make the switch to going vegan, but above all, do it for ethical reasons. www.howdoigovegan.com

The MUSE School – all vegan, Calabasas, California.

One private early childhood-12 school in southern California has gone all the way, eliminating all meat and animal products from its cafeteria and offering an entirely plant-based menu.

The MUSE School in Calabasas, California, is believed to be the first primary or secondary school in the nation to go entirely vegan.

MUSE was founded by actress Suzy Amis Cameron and her sister Rebecca Amis in 2006, with a focus on sustainability. According to spokeswoman Jennifer Mau, MUSE’s board and administration made the decision to go vegan last spring; all lettuce and nearly half of the produce will be sourced from on-campus gardens and greenhouses thanks to the school’s seed-to-table initiative, which grows about 200 different varieties.

MUSE was already moving toward the change, serving entirely plant-based meals one day a week to its 150 students beginning in September 2013. Last fall, it upped that number to two days a week, plus two days of vegetarian-friendly fare.

Parents’ response to the initiative has been largely positive, Mau says.

“The way we eat is the easiest and most impactful way we can alter our carbon footprint as a school,” MUSE’s head of school Jeff King said in a statement. “The largest consumers of water are not people but cattle. To truly deliver our mission of sustainability, we had to find a sustainable way of eating. The answer was to create our ‘One Meal a Day for the Planet’ program — plant-based lunches and snacks — for our students.”

Nutritionists interviewed applauded MUSE’s move away from the typically highly processed foods and drinks that too often remain standard American cafeteria fare. Going vegan not only has an environmental impact, but also a health one — reducing risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer and diabetes, as well as curbing obesity.

A vegan diet is in line with the health world’s recommendation to eat mostly (fruits, vegetables, and grains), nuts and seeds, and In order to be successful and healthy ought to offer a variety of choices. Menus must be planned to be adequate in calories, protein, and variety.

Mau, noting that students are only eating one meal a day at MUSE, said school officials are very careful about their approach to plant-based proteins in an effort to ensure the meals are as nutritious as possible.

Between healthy eating and physical exercise and improved student behaviour and academic performance. It’s evidence, that MUSE’s efforts are beneficial for their students in ways beyond their physical health.

Many more schools are now becoming aware of the key benefits that a vegan meal plan offers it’s students, and are preparing to follow suit.

World Environment Day, every day – Going Vegan.

It is purely through the inspiration of world environment day that we are completely inspired to write this article.  And may we add that every day ought to be environment day – for it is upon our ecosystems that we all so depend.

Your question: Our dream is to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature… What’s yours?

Ours is to encourage children (all of which are innocent until corrupt by an otherwise unjust system), to grow up and do what is morally just.  The world is in need of education at tertiary level. The school systems around the world are so slow in adapting to future standards. We need to work on that!

People every where love animals and do not want to see them harmed in any way what so ever. However due to a corporate systems that encourages children to become desensitized to slaughter, murder , violence, and death  – so does the earth experience the same energies experienced by our future children.  This desperately needs to be amended by us their guardians, their fellow elders.

It is the elders who have supposedly learnt from past mistakes and experiences –  it is therefore up to us to pass those blessings down to the young ones.  We have seen for ourselves for many a millennia what works and what does not.  Violence – we have learnt offers no protection, it offers no health , it offer no mental or physical stability. Therefore it is conclusive to move away from violence completely – to educate now about nonviolence.  There are many sights that list animal agriculture as the number one cause for world demise (violence, hunger, climate change, confusion).

How do we practice nonviolence in our daily lives you may ask – simple – through veganism. We practice it daily by understanding what veganism means . It means love. Veganism means that we understand what it means to love completely. We love by not harming anyone – that would include all living beings, human and nonhuman beings.  With the understanding that all beings have a purpose of living, we all have cognisance, we all plan ahead, we all have feelings, we all have understanding, we all have the capacity to feel love, joy, fear etc, – in other words we as humans have not the right to enslave, possess, torture, abuse, murder, eat , wear, and use others in order to profit from and pleasure ourselves with at others expense.  All who so dearly love sentient’s already agree with this.

Since we cannot rely on those who fight for animal rights who continue to fight for them for profit margins through their ‘donate buttons’ that do nothing to save the lives of animals on the grand scale of things, neither can we rely on corporations who continue to exploit animals , and neither can we rely on governments who do nothing –  it has become clearly obvious and apparent that it is only at the grassroots level that we (you and I) CAN do something to save the lives of billions of animals by going vegan.

Going vegan costs you nothing.  No one controls you. It is a consciences decision that you alone can agree on, and want to for the sake of suffering animals across the globe, for the sake of climate change, and for the sake of other humans who suffer at the current system in play.  Going vegan is a joy and it certainly leaves you so much healthier. You have absolutely nothing to lose.

Back to your original question :  Our dream is to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature… What’s yours?

Our answer to your question is : Go vegan first and foremost, and teach others to do the same. Stop violence, stop climate change.

How to make the most of world environment day:

Go vegan first and foremost.

Make the most of your garden.

Make thoughtful decisions.

Create a compost pile.

Reduce food waste.

Reduce plastic consumption.

Love one another.

Change today’s failures – make them victories.

This little calf was born on a truck whilst his pregnant mother was forced on board with others kidnapped to a slaughter facility. He fell out of the truck when she gave birth to him. He was abandoned on the side of the road. His mother, held against her will in the truck looked out calling to him while the truck continued to take her to her death – this is the reality of all animals whom humans call food.  Fortunately for her baby, traffic police rescued him  – but you can change billions of tragedies similar to this by going vegan. Change today’s failures  –  make them victories – no more excuses, no more invalid reasons to exploit.

Ever read commentary on so called ‘animal rights organisations’ Facebook pages and in groups? All that anger. Ever wonder why animal abuse is on the rise? Ever wonder why admins on those pages are not educating people about how to actually stop animal abuse through active veganism? There are a lot of angry people out there who say that they love animals but are not acquiring the knowledge on how to channel their anger to actually help animals actively  – organisations choose to avoid and ignore veganism as their moral baseline, and fail to educate their captive audience ethically about living nonviolently – in essence they miss opportunity to make a difference for billions of lives who depend upon them for survival. This is both immoral and unjust. Inciting hatred, sadness, confusion, and leaving people with feelings of uselessness is not beneficial for sentient’s – it is wasting time going full circle. People are yearning to learn how they can make a difference. It is up to all organisations to educate and guide about the ethics of living a vegan life. We are not saying that marching, protesting and signing petitions is wrong – we are simply saying that all of that is futile when those who do so continue to make excuses for abusing animals by consuming and wearing them.

Cruelty to animals starts with you and will only stop when you go vegan – if you don’t go vegan, cruelty to animals will continue to escalate as it has done for millennia due to increased populations and demand by you, whom have not been educated by organisations that you support. There is no amount of yammering that you can do that will change the status of animals – legally they don’t have one – only you can change your perception of them by not perceiving them as chattel property, by not allowing them to be treated as slaves, by not eating them, by not wearing them and by not exploiting them in any other way – quite simply go vegan . The fast-moving production lines have now extended to all animals which has become the demise of many specie and the primary cause of specie extinction. Breeding lines both legal and non are on the rise –  many if not most ‘animal organisations’ who say they are advocating for animal rights fail to educate and promote veganism as their ‘moral baseline’ , leaving animals with no choice but to die indiscriminately daily –  as long as organisations are giving people the green light to continue to promote violence – the violence shall continue because people will feel comfortable in doing so – and because they can.  In other words what many organisations are still saying to the public is that it is ok to eat and wear animals – it’s not.

Educating the world against animal exploitation which includes consuming meat, dairy and eggs, and wearing them, should be priority number one by anyone who says that they are advocating for the true interests of animals  –  nothing else makes any sense what so ever.  Animal rights organisations who fail to educate about nonviolence for animals are failing animals miserably  – clearly they couldn’t care less about animals. Fighting for single issue campaigns holds small significance with low mortality of success, without the back bone and support structure of educating the masses about living life nonviolently and encouraging everyone to go vegan.

In order to make a real difference – the most effective action that all organisations should be embracing and promoting today with complete conviction and clarity is veganism, they should have pounded this message five decades ago, the world wouldn’t be in the mess it’s in today, animal cruelty would be non existent.  If all animal organisations jumped out of bed with corporations who are directly responsible for animal abuse and environmental destruction, and pushed hard for vegan ethics first and foremost as their moral baseline – animals would have a much higher chance of survival rate.  Education, modern day thinking, and applications of the biggest solution to stop animal enslavement, torture and death, which rivals today’s largest pandemic ever is to go vegan and educate others to do so.  All animal organisations must now climb aboard the vegan train otherwise animals will continue to suffer – so shall the environment upon which they depend.

Failure to commit to veganism is responsible for a circle in ‘trend’ of animal abuse. There is no justification for sending out the wrong message to the public – ‘that it is acceptable to exploit animals’ by eating and wearing them  –  this is the worlds biggest social injustice today – those of you who know the difference recognise ARO’s who aren’t who they say they are,  who continue to display a ‘don’t care enough attitude’, those who are speciesist, who discriminate against some specie and only advocate for a selected few. They fail to make the holistic connection to what going vegan means – they fail to share a pivotal message – they fail to stop violence against animals.

Lets be clear – consuming and wearing animals harms animals – this is logical, there is no dispute.  To continue to do so violates their right to live – it is therefore logical that it is abusive and violent to eat and wear animals – all animals. Why would ARO’s not want to do everything in their power to educate the public against such abuse,  for all specie – you have the platform to do so, you hold the centre stage to speak with clarity against all forms of animal abuse, you have the audience, you hold the mike;  – yet continue to avoid the most fundamental moral issue that will stop animal cruelty of magnitude proportions today. You fail to speak out fully in support of going vegan and to educate about veganism.  The world is watching – ARO’s you have already lost credibility if you don’t climb fully on board now – you shall lose even more because the vegan movement is growing rapidly – those who care about animals, don’t discriminate against any specie  –  those who care about animals action their words to the next level, and live their lives ethically for the benefit of all sentient’s, those who care about animals educate others because they care so deeply and want change for them – the world is recognising the difference. Educating people about veganism is the worlds primary source of hope for animals and the environment in which they live.

How can you make a difference for  billions of animals today? – Go vegan, support vegan eateries and vegan stores, if you must donate then donate to ethical vegan establishments who do not discriminate against specie – who harm no one and educate about veganism , donate if you must to ethical vegan talk show hosts who promote nonviolence, and donate to no kill shelters,  talk about veganism  with clarity and conviction to everyone everywhere that you meet, promote veganism at schools –  support schools who have embraced modern vegan education, continue to educate your friends – your family – the neighbours about veganism   – shout it out loud,  share nonviolence with the world. Let everyone know that you are vegan for ethical reasons.  Let everyone know that animals matter –  that it is morally wrong to exploit them in any way what so ever .  You are their voice – you are their only hope of action, your decision to go vegan and to educate others to do so matters morally.

Humane slaughter.

We are convinced that everyone thinks these mugshots are deplorable in every way. Not only do they violate our human right to live peacefully in a non-violent society today however they violate every right that animals ought to have – the right to live. And yet this is what has been ‘coined’ as ‘humane’ slaughter by the animal agricultural industries and their partners involved in these massacres at slaughter facilities, farms, butcheries and whole sale markets.

Their feeble reasoning to continue these bloody onslaughts for profit margins of innocent individuals who cannot speak for themselves and have no legal rights, is to feed the masses. They say that they need to provide you with food but this is not food. You don’t need to consume such violent, decomposing vulgar that is thrown at you. They are all harping on about ‘humane slaughter’, selling out the animals and covering up their lies as they go along. You will agree that there is nothing humane about slaughter no matter which perspective you look at it from. Slaughter cannot be justified no matter how humane they try to convince you that it is. No such thing exists. It’s another marketing tool used by highly paid advertising campaigns to pat you on the back and encourage you to continue supporting the most violent legal industry in the history of mankind, with guilt free conscience.

We watched in silence, shock, horror as the perverted butcher spoke in a rigid voice and stroked ‘Bessie’ between her eyes. He promised her that she would be alight and that everything would be fine – and coldly patted her on the head. She froze. Bessie was a beautiful being. His assistant then pointed a cold steel bolt to her head, She looked up at us her eyes rolling back knowingly. The gun was fired, she collapsed to the floor with such a thud. Within 15 seconds a large iron chain with a hook was wrapped around  her left leg and she was hoisted into mid air. Her tongue fell out of her mouth, her eyes still open – body pushed across the slaughterhouse floor and positioned over a filthy bucket which read ‘inedible’. A knife was then forcefully thrust into her throat –  she was left to bleed out. The sickening stench of her blood filled the air and penetrated our nostrils – a disgusting smell we shall never forget. They proceeded to butcher her to pieces –  separating her head then the bottom part of all four of her legs. The skinning began still whilst she dangled in mid air until they had ripped off her entire beautiful epidermis. Her naked carcass hung there – she was completely unrecognisable from the gorgeous living breathing individual that had been alive only a few moments ago. Bessie had been completely violated in every way possible but they didn’t stop there. She was cut down the front of her body – someone then lunged into her ripping all of her insides out which fell into another bucket. She was then cut in half down the centre – her two halves now pulled away – they proceeded to hack at her now cold rotting body. Finally her pieces were rolled into a morgue with others that had been butchered before her. Does any of this sound remotely humane to you? No – off course not – that’s because you know that it’s not.

You may try to justify that killing someone less violently is humane. Killing someone less violently and without them possibly knowing that you are about to do so is better than killing someone in a highly violent manner but does it make it right.  No off course it doesn’t. There is no justification for killing at all –  not killing someone is first prize if we want to stop violence especially when there is no need for killing anyone at all. To say that they are killing these animals to feed you is simply quite perverse and to justify any murder as humane is even more perverted.

You can stop all violence by simply going vegan. ‘People’ like Bessie wouldn’t have to suffer so – you would be healthier and the whole world would benefit from you going vegan. Say no to violence – don’t fall prey to an industry that promotes so much violence (no matter how ‘humane’) they claim it to be – it’s not. They are responsible for billions of deaths including both animals and humans. They are also responsible for accelerated climate change – they are poising earth’s water and air and destroying beautiful land/forests by breeding and expanding their programmes. The barbaric animal agricultural industry is way behind our modern times. They are a backward thinking regimen still who continue to destroy – they have much to answer for and they know it but continue to punt ‘death’ on our doorstep because legally they can. So it is up to you to see right through them all – the evidence is there and it is highly apparent.

Here is a list of ‘healthy’ foods that you can switch over to immediately in order to benefit, stop violence and help the rest of the world to continue her healing process : Starting your vegan pantry

6 more reasons to go vegan.

When promoting veganism, we’re often confronted by claims of care toward humans as though they negate the importance of going vegan. Veganism is trivialized as something for “animal lovers,” not for humanitarians and social justice workers. It often goes something like, “I care about human issues” or “We have too many human problems to solve before we can deal with animal rights.”

If there’s one thing that veganism has taught me, it’s that everything is interconnected. We can’t commit violence over there and then wonder why there’s violence over here. We can’t meditate on inner peace and world peace, while consuming the products of violence. Our values and intentions mean something and we’re selling ourselves short when we act as though we can just overlook a fundamental form of discrimination and violence and still achieve our goals as individuals and a species.

So here are 6 reasons why even those who prioritize human concerns over animal concerns should still go vegan.

1. Do you eat? If you have time to eat in a day, and have access to grains, legumes, and some fruits and vegetables, then you have time to eat a vegan diet while still dedicating all of your other time to humans.

2. Eating animals does not demonstrate care for humans, it just demonstrates disregard for animals and disregard for the negative impact that using animals as resources has on humans and ecosystems. In other words, you’re not showing how much you care for humans by not being vegan. You demonstrate care for humans by caring for humans, and by paying attention to the ways in which domination and injustice are intersectional. The principles that guide us to help humans – justice, compassion, peace, nonviolence – also happen to be the foundations of veganism, and they’re better served when one of the greatest sources of violence to which we directly contribute is eliminated: eating animals who are more like us than not, and contributing to the death of 30 land animals and hundreds of marine animals every year while exacerbating resource inequality, climate change, pollution and water scarcity. Veganism is empowering because we can do so much with so little and use the foundation of nonviolence to support other forms of activism.

3. Compassion and justice are not measured quantitatively. You don’t run out of compassion and justice when you use some on animals. In fact, the more compassion you allow yourself to feel and the more expansive your sense of justice, the more you will generate. Imagine if your sense of food justice also protects other vulnerable beings and protects the environmental landscape for future generations. Justice grows. If your heart can cringe at the sight of a cat in pain, imagine what you must feel for a human child. If you feel indignation when someone squashes an insect, imagine how you must feel when humans go to war. Studies show that vegans and vegetarians respond with more empathy to both human and animal suffering than non-vegetarians. Compassion grows.

4. We already agree that unnecessary animal suffering is wrong. If you think it’s wrong when someone beats a dog or kicks a cat, ask yourself why. We tend to respond with moral indignation because these acts cause unnecessary suffering. Even if we think that humans matter more than animals and that we would save a human life over an animal life any day, we still think that it’s wrong to cause unnecessary suffering to animals. Since we don’t need animal products to live healthfully, any amount of suffering caused to an animal raised as a resource is unnecessary. Eating a fish or an ice cream cone or wearing a leather jacket causes no less suffering than kicking a cat; in fact, it likely causes much more suffering. Being vegan is the absolute least we can do if we care even a tiny bit about animals. If you care enough about animals to care for a cat or a hamster, to think it’s wrong when someone kills a whale or steps on a mouse, then you care enough to not eat a cow or a chicken or a fish. It’s that simple. Animals are sentient: they feel pain and pleasure and they have an interest in not suffering and not dying. And luckily, this is all it takes to warrant moral consideration.

5. Violence produces violence. Animal suffering is human suffering. Whether you kill animals yourself or pay others to do it for you, by creating an industry that requires humans to act violently, we contribute to a violent humanity. Individuals who work in slaughterhouses have some of the highest rates of workplace injury, mental illness, suicide, drug abuse and domestic violence. To quote William Blake, “a dog starved at his master’s gate predicts the ruin of the state.” Psychologists interpret violent behaviour against animals as a precursor to violence against humans. The way we treat every living organism is a reflection of our entire world view. We can’t expect justice and peace within our own species while we terrorize others.

6. Animal agriculture affects us all. According to the World Watch Institute: “the human appetite for animal flesh is a driving force behind virtually every major category of environmental damage now threatening the human future—deforestation, erosion, fresh water scarcity, air and water pollution, climate change, biodiversity loss, social injustice, the destabilization of communities, and the spread of disease.” Breeding, feeding and killing animals requires tremendous resources that are now being depleted beyond regeneration. This affects the world’s poor most drastically. There are over 7 billion people on the planet, while nearly 1 billion people are currently malnourished or dying of starvation. More than 6 million children will die this year of starvation. 82 percent of these children live in countries where grain surpluses are fed to animals that are eaten by individuals in the developed world. One quarter of all of the grain produced in third world countries is given to livestock (Oppenlander, “The World Hunger-Food Choice Connection“). This affects food prices, food availability and food security for everyone.

After these considerations, we might still be left with one or more of the four common justifications for continuing to eat animals: tradition, habit, convenience or pleasure. But as progressive people, we don’t have a problem condemning traditions or habits that don’t hold up to moral scrutiny. We have no problem saying that if a tradition involves violence against women that it needs to change. Or that if someone derives pleasure from harming children that they need to change.

We know that ethical principles that protect individuals from harm transcend both social considerations: traditions, cultural norms, dominant ideologies; and individual considerations: habits, tastes, and convenience. Social and cultural maxims and individual wants cannot serve as ethical justifications. They always serve as excuses and rationalizations. So instead of responding with knee-jerk excuses or hiding behind concerns for humanity, let’s embrace the intersectional nature of injustice and start fighting for justice everywhere. An easy place to start is on our plates.
