Because They’re Scientists And They Say So

“More than 21,000 scientists from around the world believe that humans need to seriously change their behavior — including reducing the amount of meat they eat and consuming more plant-based foods — in order to prevent dangerous levels of climate change,” claims a recent article in Live Kindly, a magazine whose tag line is “FOR HUMANITY, OUR HOME, AND THOSE WHO SHARE IT WITH US.”

The scientists signed an article in the Journal of Bioscience entitled “World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity: A Second Notice.”

The report evaluates the state of the planet in 2017 compared to 1992 when the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), along with 1700 independent scientists published an article entitled “World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity.”

Mad scientist

It is interesting to note that the UCS has already taken a position against meat eating. In an April 26 , 2012 UCS blog, Margaret Mellon, a Senior Scientists Emeritus at UCS claimed that, “meat is the biggest climate offender,” and that the biggest change an individual can make to reduce global warming emissions is to eat less meat.

In the 2017 report, the scientists clearly promote a dietary shift towards plant-based foods, as well as an increase in nature education for children, halting the conversion of forests, grasslands, and other native habitats, and, among many other changes, devise and promote new green technologies.

Another piece of the social engineering puzzle comes from the United Nations which recently claimed that tackling meat consumption was the world’s most urgent problem.

 “Our use of animals as a food production technology has brought us to the verge of catastrophe,” the UN Environment said in a statement. “The greenhouse gas footprint of animal agriculture rivals that of every car, truck, bus, ship, airplane, and rocket ship combined. There is no pathway to achieve the Paris climate objectives without a massive decrease in the scale of animal agriculture.”

It’s nice to know thousands of scientists, along with the United Nations, have our best interests in mind when telling us what to eat.
