Over 15000 Scientists Urge The World To Go Vegan!

Over 15,000 scientists from around the world have come together to sign and support an unprecedented “warning to humanity.” This is the second such warning, the first coming in 1992 when 1,700 scientists issued a warning about the ever-growing list of threats humans, plants, and animals face to our survival.

The warning calls attention to the key risks facing humans today, including population growth, climate change, deforestation, lack of access to clean water, and widespread species extinction, and urges us, essentially… to go vegan!

The letter warns that the Earth may soon be at its breaking point where humans will be unable to reverse widespread changes to our home planet.

“It is also time to re-examine and change our individual behaviors, including limiting our own reproduction (ideally to replacement level at most) and drastically diminishing our per capita consumption of fossil fuels, meat, and other resources.”

The document says.

The group’s statement is clear.

While people often focus on the greenhouse emissions of cars and other vehicles, animal agriculture is the biggest threat,

as it produces more greenhouse gas emissions than all the cars, planes, and other forms of transportation combined.

They also point out that this rapid heating has “unleashed a mass extinction event, the sixth in roughly 540 million years.” Scientists predict many current life forms could be annihilated or near extinction by the end of this century.

The paper calls on all to help by being informed consumers and voters, lest we find ourselves homeless.

Time is running out, the scientists remind us:

To prevent widespread misery and catastrophic biodiversity loss, humanity must practice a more environmentally sustainable alternative to life and business as usual. This prescription was well articulated by the world’s leading scientists 25 years ago, but in most respects, we have not heeded their warning…We must recognize, in our day-to-day lives and in our governing institutions, that Earth with all its life is our only home.
