Speaking of the United Kingdom’s already established
emission goals during a February 3 conference, Soil Association Policy
Director Lord Peter Melchett said that these will be met only if
consumers reduce their intake of pork and poultry alone by at least 75%.
Lord Melchett stated, “It's ludicrous … not to talk about
consumption when we're talking about environmental sustainability.”
Meanwhile, he also highlighted the benefits of organic farming, saying
that a recently conducted study found that if all the farmland in the
nation went organic, the soil could absorb 3.2 million tons of carbon,
or the equivalent of removing nearly 1 million cars from the road.
appreciation, Lord Melchett and Soil Association, for your
encouragement of the transition to meat-free, organic living. May we
soon herald a vegan world for the vibrant stability of our precious
Supreme Master Ching Hai has frequently advocated organic
vegan farming and adoption of the same planet-cooling diet, as
highlighted in an October 2009 climate change conference in Formosa
Master Ching Hai: Without the needless animal industry, not only
will we gain forests, we can also have organic vegan farmlands to grow
real, decent food for humans, and like the forests, these farmlands can
also absorb a lot of heat from the atmosphere. http://www.fwi.co.uk/Articles/2010/02/03/119820/Consumers-need-to-eat-less-meat-says-Soil-Association.htm
And a global
shift to organic vegan practices could mean 40% of all greenhouse gases
absorbed as well, apart from the 50 plus percent that we eliminate
through the terminating of the animals raising practice.
governments could save tens of trillions of US dollars, tens of
trillions of US dollars if everyone be veg and plant organic. So you
see, 50% less from no more animal industry, 40% less carbon dioxide from
organic farming, then we will be singing, our world will be saved.
