Celebrate a "Tofu Tuesday!" Skip a beef meal, and try a vegetarian recipe today.
Why? Reducing our meat consumption is good for the environment. Meat production is extremely resource-intensive - livestock currently consume 70 percent of America's grain production and enormous amounts of water. Cattle ranching is a major cause of destruction of rainforest in Central and South America - fifty-five square feet of rainforest are destroyed for every quarter pound hamburger that comes from a cleared rainforest. Raising cows for beef also adds to global climate change through fossil fuel use, methane production, and forest destruction. When it comes to meat and climate change, eating one pound of hamburger does the same damage as driving your car for more than three weeks!
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
I would outlaw the slaughter of innocent animals. I would create more jobs for farmers who would grow alternative fuels. I would
make recycling mandatory. All the rich movie stars should have to give extra money to the poor. I would develop more freedom of education for children-- their voice is just as important as adults. I would also make everyone have anger management therapy.
What/who changed my life and why
All things, shape what and who you become. The point is to take something from even the bad expriences and turn it into something positve. If you do not gain awareness & compassion for others going through a tough time after you have... there really no hope for you or humanity.
