Climate protection, environmental protection, protection of species, wholesome food – all that belongs together. With a purposive diet we have the opportunity to preserve our world for coming generation.
Day-to-day we are confronted with renewable primary products, preservation of species, supporting fair trade and ecological cultivation, as well as emission values. It seems to be impossible to fulfill all these issues. But I don’t think that we should give up before even trying, as we are not able to change the world within in days. Everyone really has the chance to create a better world!
Extinction of species catches up
About 150 species are extinguished every day. The reason is in the first place the doubtful morality of our culture and our cupidity. Everything has to become bigger, faster and better. There is only one way to survive among the western industry: to stick at nothing. Fishermen are starving and overfish therefore their seas, hunters try to feed their families and have therefore to kill for ivory. Where money is hard up, egoism rules. The weaker loses, man is killing selfishly.
Ruthless in spite of education
The reason for ruthlessness in the first place is that people aren’t elucidated about their environment. Ethical wrong decisions are comprehensible if they are made under life-threatening circumstances, but in fact we are responsible for various harm even though we are living in luxury.
Every year about 500 million farm animals are killed in Germany (PETA). And as if that were not enough the animals are unnecessarily tortured. Kept into too small hutches, drugged and mutilated to avoid panics. From dam to the slaughterhouse, from egg on to the hook. That’s the way we treat our animals, well educated people, supposed to be compassionated. Of course do animals have feelings and of course they are able to have relationships. Every second person has a pet; some describe even their relationship with their fishes as heartfelt.
Factory farming – an environmental problem
The mistreatment of animals is not the sole problem of factory farming. Just the bred animals needed for the USA produce 130 times the excrement the world population does. This contributes in an enormous way to the climate change we are facing. You can compare the omnivorous lifestyle with taking the truck, whereas vegans are riding bicycles.
But why feed the good corn to animals although we could consume it directly?! Counted this way a carnivore needs 20-times the land a vegan does. You simply need 160 lb of corn to create 2 lb of meat.
Why this detour? Animals are mistreated, vast numbers of water and food wasted and all that in times where we urgently need it by ourselves.
Learn to understand the environment
We aren’t alone on our planet and have to try to preserve it in all its beauty and diversity. Germany is one of the richest countries; we are enjoying the luxury of education, whereas most people don’t even get the opportunity to educate their selves as they have to fight for their daily nutrition and their lives itself.
Development programs support the economy in Third Worlds countries and create bit-by-bit an ecological awareness. But such things will take time of generations, time our planet maybe doesn’t have. Everyone is required to improve the situation and to make the world a better place.
Act and don’t take refuge in excuses
It sounds so difficult, but believe me it isn’t. Due to an aware nutrition your health will increase, you will reduce harm and you contribute to a sustainable world.
