If Everyone Is Not Forced To Go Vegan, We’re Doomed

Cause doom

(HuffPo) “We’re creating irreversibility in areas of global depletion. If we’re going to make it as a civilization or species, we have to change,” says Dr. Richard Oppenlander. “To move the world in the direction that’s truly more sustainable, the most efficient way possible means adopting fully organic, plant-based agricultural systems.”

Oppenlander (pronounced OPENlander, as in open your eyes) admits, “I take a hard line,” but he has reason. His exhaustively researched books “Food Choice and Sustainability” and “Comfortably Unaware” document seven areas of global depletion. “My goal was to create a platform, a timeline,” he says. And time is running out. “Tipping points have already been reached. We have 50 to 60 years of top soil use, and with climate change, we have a 50 to 75 year range before things become unbearable.”

Deforestation, climate change, fresh water shortage and other environmental arenas on the brink of global depletion share a common cause — “our food choice, specifically animal agriculture. Even if we moved to a fully plant-based diet today, 30 percent of the oceans are more acidic than they’ve been in historical times. These figures were not created by me. They came from very respected organizations, scientific organizations. I’m just the messenger.” (big snip)

Oppenlander still believes it’s up to national if not global policymakers to pave the way for real change. “They can’t just put this on the back burner.”

You can’t either. Meatless Monday helps, but Oppenlander doesn’t want people crapping out on the planet the other six days of the week. We don’t have that kind of time. “It’s hard to change our food preferences,” Oppenlander concedes. “But we have to start looking beyond self. We’re not the only thing that lives on earth.”

There you go, Warmists: every single one of you needs to go meatless 7 days a week. If you don’t, it means you hate the planet.
