One Step Closer To the Most Inconvenient of Truths

I’m sure we can all appreciate Al Gore’s contribution to an expanded global awareness on various environmental concerns.  At the same time, many of us “in the know” in the animal advocacy community have been disappointed by his blatant side-stepping of the science regarding animal agriculture and the resulting environmental catastrophes. So, at last…it’s nice to hear him publicly admit this connection on Larry King…as low-key of an admission as it may have been.  (It’s interesting how he rightfully positions the factory farming industry as the main culprit where these environment issues are concerned, without underscoring the fact that 99% of all animal products come from this industry!)

I have other thoughts and feelings to share on this subject but, for now, let’s celebrate the little victory here and acknowledge that, at the very least, we’ve taken another step closer the MOST inconvenient of truths; animal agriculture as we know it – on a planet that’s pushing seven billion and beyond – is simply unsustainable.

    I was JUST about to jump on him from my computer when he equated meat with protein then caught himself when he admitted to there being other [better] sources.
    It also just really GETS me when people say eating meat is a “personal choice”, when for one, it can’t be a personal choice when you’re involving others in that decision who have NO choice or say in the matter, and also what one eats effects EVERYONE and EVERY-thing, so to say “it’s personal” is ignoring the VERY real, significant fact that everything is connected!

    No doubt.

    This is the very subject of an upcoming post, by the way…
