News Flash: Al Gore Knows the Cow is in the Room

“Life is sacred, that is to say, it is the supreme value to which all other values are subordinate” – Albert Einstein.

Dear Climate Healers,

“Years ago, I spoke with Al Gore and he told me that the relationship between meat & dairy production and climate change is the real inconvenient truth” – Moby, Musician & Plant Based Treaty Endorser. This quote was found on an Instagram post on the Plant Based Treaty channel and it caught my attention a few days ago.

Decades ago, a brand new car that I had bought caught fire the next morning in our garage. When I discovered the raging fire in the garage, I rushed to gather our two precious young children, hit the fire alarm and ran out of the house. I did not go around collecting my wallet, our passports, jewelry or any other material possessions. Just our children.

Today, there are six fires raging in our planetary home, figuratively. There are six planetary boundaries that we have transgressed into the RED zone: fresh water change, land use change, climate change, chemical pollution, nitrogen and phosphorous loading and biodiversity loss, in ascending order of severity. Any one of these transgressions is sufficient to end life on planet Earth. However, as I elaborated in the Oxford Union debate speech, the good news is that if the world goes Vegan, it would help resolve ALL six of these planetary boundary transgressions.

Yet, our political leaders like Al Gore seem to ignore five of the transgressions and pretend that the only transgression worth their attention is climate change. Then they employ dishonest accounting to portray fossil fuels as the leading cause of climate change and not animal agriculture. Finally, they persuade the public to buy solar panels and electric cars so that their corporate owners can profit off the transactions.

Their support for Veganism, the only solution that can help quench ALL six of our planetary fires, is virtually nonexistent. Instead, politicians globally have bent over backwards to waive any restrictions during the COVID-19 debacle to accommodate slaughterhouse owners so that their employees were forced to work even when they were infected.

Just as the Roman Empire used cheap bread and circuses, cheap bread to keep the people fed and circuses to entertain them while they were being robbed blind by the nobility, its modern version seems to be using cheap burgers and TikTok for the same exploitative purposes. The continued subsidization of the animal agriculture industry is therefore, paramount in the minds of our global political leaders, while it seems they couldn’t care less about the continuation of life on planet Earth.

Those who would rush to collect their wallets, passports and jewelry while their children burn in the house fire are surely missing the very essence of humanity.

They need help.

With much love,
Sailesh on behalf of the Climate Healers Core team.

    A while ago we started a campaign called Operation Missing Link to get Al Gore to start talking about the huge, negative impact that animal husbandry has on climate change. The petition is still active at https://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/al-gore-animal-agriculture-and-climate-change/ and perhaps now that the effects of animal husbandry are becoming more widely known that the petition will get more traction and attention to get Al Gore to take this issue seriously.

Watch, learn and share.

It starts with Education. Eye-opening webinars that lay bare the untruths we are told, and which shine a light on the abuses of our planet and nature all carried out in the name of economic ‘growth’.
