This site explains the impact that eating meat has on the environment, while also explaining the impact that eating vegan food has on the environment. "Producing a little more than 2 pounds of beef causes more greenhouse-gas emissions than driving a car for three hours and uses up more energy than leaving your house lights on for the same period of time." This tells me that the constant emissions going into the environment is taking a toll on it and could have serious consequences. Overall, meat production is causing deforestation, pollution, and also is using a lot of earths resources. Many ecosystems are being destroyed everyday in order to fuel our constant need for meat. ***Donner, Simon. “Veganism and the Environment.” PETA, www.peta.org/issues/animals-used-for-food/animals-used-food-factsheets/vegetarianism-environment/.
This article explains what would happen if everyone in the world became vegetarian. Meat production is one of the top contributors to climate change, and with the global demand for meat constantly on the rise, pollution could become worse. It was determined that if everyone to become vegan, the carbon emissions would reduce by 17 percent, and methane emissions by 24 percent. Although the world going vegan would have many benefits, there are also some downfalls. Meat production does account for around 1.3 billion jobs, and by cutting out meat completely, the economy would suffer overall. ***Anderson, L.V. “What Would Happen If Everyone in the World Stopped Eating Meat?” Slate Magazine, Slate, 1 May 2014, www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/feed_the_world/2014/05/meat_eating_and_climate_change_vegetarians_impact_on_the_economy_antibiotics.html.
This article explains how being vegan helps the environment, and also the effects of climate change on livestock. "Additionally, there’s a risk that climate change could promote the spread of animal diseases among livestock, which could further elevate the cost of animal products in a manner similar to how egg prices are currently being pushed upwards by outbreaks of avian flu." This is important because who would want to be eating contaminated meat? By eating vegetarian, anyone can avoid this problem. By decreasing the amount of livestock available, the price of livestock is increasing which is therefore bad for the economy. Along with veganism being safer, it is also much more affordable. ***Kilby, Bill. “Here's a Diet That Could Help Solve the Drought.” ATTN: ATTN: 1 Jan. 1693, www.attn.com/stories/3062/veganism-and-the-environment.
