Happy Earth Day everyone! fullview
I know people are sick of today being like… National Guilt Day, but we only have one planet and we all have to take responsibility for it. We, us humans (especially in countries with developed industries), are in large part responsible for fucking up the environment for just about every other living soul, and it’s something we need to consider with utmost sincerity, for them and for ourselves. Although cars are a major culprit of man-made pollution, they are by no means the most serious. The animal agriculture industry causes more pollution than every form of transportation combined and is responsible for the felling of around 70% of former rain forests, yet is rarely included in wide-spread public conversations about environmentalism. On the contrary, it’s heavily subsidized by the US government (one of the worst offenders of global pollution).
At a certain point, even something that may seem like a personal choice could effect others in very significant and potentially dangerous ways.
So please, do take the time to read and consider this article, if possible!
