In your idea of a perfect world, no animals would be killed/eaten right? So the entire planet would be surviving on what? How long do you think this world would last like that?





This is a great question. As cool as it would be if everyone decided to go vegan, it wouldn’t happen overnight. As more people decide to switch to a humane and compassionate lifestyle, the demand for animal products starts to decline. When this happens, farmers start breeding less animals for consumption.

What effect does this have on the environment?

  • Less carbon dioxide emission (if one person exchanges eating meat for a vegan diet, they’ll reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 1.5 tons per year)
  • less methane production (chickens, turkeys, pigs, and cows are collectively the largest producer of methane in the U.S.)
  • less nitrus oxide (the meat, egg, and dairy industries produce 65% of worldwide nitrous oxide emissions)
  • not to mention that 1 calorie from animal protein requires 11 times as much fossil fuel as one calorie of plant protein
  • and the diets of meat eaters create 7x the greenhouse emissions as the diets of vegans
  • nearly half of all water used in the United States goes to raising animals for food. it takes more than 2,400 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of meat (1 pound of wheat requires 25 gallons)
  • you’d save more water by not eating one pound of meat than you would by not taking a shower for 6 months
  • raising animals for food uses 30% of the earth’s land mass (that’s about the same size as Asia! approx. 17 Million sq. miles. to give you another point of reference, the moon has less area than that, at 14.6 million square miles)
  • more than 260 million acres of U.S. forest have been cleared to create cropland to grow grain to feed farmed animals

Why is raising animals for food so inefficient?

  • 70% of grain and cereals grown in U.S. are fed to farmed animals
  • it requires 16 pounds of grain to produce 1 pound of meat

What does eating meat have to do with people starving in other countries?

  • every ounce of water, grain and resources that goes towards an animal who will ultimately be slaughtered is an ounce of water or grain that could have gone to those who so desperately need it. a study published earlier this year in the journal Environmental Research Letters analyzed the world’s agriculture resource data and found that humans cutting meat from their diets could play a significant role in combating world hunger. According to the researchers, 36 percent of the total calories that come from crops are allocated to farm animal feed, but only 12 percent of those calories actually make it to people’s dinner plates. The researchers concluded that if all of the world’s crops were directly consumed by humans, there would be approximately 70 percent more food available, providing sustenance for an additional 4 billion additional people.

Check out this article, in which the UN is urging a global shift towards a vegan diet -

"A global shift towards a vegan diet is vital to save the world from hunger, fuel poverty and the worst impacts of climate change, a UN report said today.

As the global population surges towards a predicted 9.1 billion people by 2050, western tastes for diets rich in meat and dairy products are unsustainable, says the report from United Nations Environment Programme’s (UNEP) international panel of sustainable resource management.”

So, in short, if the planet begins to move towards a vegan diet, our planet would last much longer, there would be better food opportunities for people who don’t get enough, there would be less damage done to the environment, there would be less disease, and maybe the other sentient beings on this planet will finally be treated with the respect they deserve.

Perfect response.

I don’t have a problem with the humane treatment or animals, or vegans wanting to eat what they want, so long as they don’t start shoving it down our throats. My ancestors didn’t climb to the top of the food chain just for me to eat only veggies and non animal want that lifestyle? Fine have it, but don’t try to  force me to change my lifestyle and eating habits to suit you. Don’t condemn me for wanting to eat meat.

Also why is the UN focusing on this? Why aren’t they focusing on helping impoverished countries, kicking Russia out of the security council for recent events in Ukraine (not that Putin would care but hey I’m talking about the principle though) , and focusing on humanitarian aid in war stricken countries?

lmao I swear people just want to add their own commentary without even reading or thinking about the original post at all. 

did you know that it’s possible to focus on and, dare I say it… *care* about more than one issue at a time?

not to mention that animal agriculture is a human rights issue;

people don’t take in to consideration the conditions that the 700,000 workers on these farms have to face on a day to day basis. Workers in factory farms have a 100% turnover rate, which means that they will either get sick and have to quit or they will quit on their own accord.

the majority of workers after spending such long periods of time inside of these factory farms end up with ‘chronic respiratory disorders, exacerbation of asthma, (and) cardiovascular complications” (source) An article in the Texas Observer even goes as far as to explain how workers who are forced to brutalize animals with no empathy develop psychological issues such as PTSD. (source)

according to the United Nations: World Food Program “there are 842 million undernourished people in the world today.” (sourceIn the United States a little over 70% of grain produced (source) every year is used to feed the ten billion(source) factory farmed animals slaughtered every year for food. 

if you took the time to do the math like David Pimentel, professor of ecology at Cornell University did in 1997 you would realize that we could feed all the starving people in the world with the grain that livestock eat.(source)

Yes, and besides how is this “shoving it down your throat”? It’s just factual information.

So far, I have been enjoying the Adventures of Business Cat a great deal, possibly more than is appropriate for an adult human. (All of these are from the webcomic Happy Jar)

UPDATE: Now with more Business.
