Hmm. So that implies that meat eaters care more about their fellow humans than vegans do. Let’s take a closer look at a huge issue. World hunger:
Poor nutrition causes nearly half (45%) of deaths in children under five - 3.1 million children each year.
Some 805 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life. That’s about one in nine people on earth.
30% of the world’s landmass is dedicated solely to livestock feed.
Switching to a vegan diet could provide food for 815 million more people than are now being fed. However, the infrastructure for distribution is currently unable to handle the amount of food. Why not?
The amount US taxpayers spend yearly to subsidize meat and dairy is $38 billion.
The annual government-managed “checkoff” spending to promote meat and dairy is $557 million.
Were this money used to establish and maintain infrastructure to distribute those human children would be fed.
Do meat eaters care about hungry people? “Demand for crops is expected to double by 2050 as population grows and increasing affluence boosts meat consumption. Meat takes a particularly big toll on food security because it takes up to 30 crop calories to produce a single calorie of meat. In addition, crops are increasingly being used for biofuels rather than food production. This study sought to quantify the benefit to food security that would accrue if some or all of the lands used to produce animal feed and fuel were reallocated to directly produce food for people” [x] Meat eaters don’t care about other humans being hungry, they only care that they can eat animal remains. If they did then they’d realize that by spending the amount of resources to produce meat for their selfish appetites, they are literally starving impoverished human children.
As to the Environment, the animal agriculture industry meeting the demand of 7 billion people is the driving force behind climate change and the 6th mass extinction of species (including humans) on earth. Even when faced with this fact meat eaters would rather have their Big Macs and die taking their fellow humans with them. Vegans on the other hand are trying to save the biosphere (including humans).
One example is the Amazon Rainforest, the lungs of the earth. The Amazon is the largest rainforest and it is rainforests that exchange carbon dioxide for oxygen in the atmosphere. They also provide some filtration of air pollutants. The Amazon Rainforest is being cut down at a rate of an acre per second 24/7. 80% of that is due to either cattle grazing or growing livestock feed. Over 1,000 environmental activists have been murdered in the last 20 years for opposing the cattle and oil industries destruction of the Amazon rainforest. Why are they putting their lives on the line opposing the killers in the cattle industry? Because they care about whether human and animals have a livable, sustainable planet. Meat eaters on the other hand would just as soon see the planet die of asphyxiation than to give up one hamburger.
So who is it that doesn’t care about humans?
