“VEGAN” is “Vitally Engaged Guardians of Animals and Nature”. It is time to consider a fundamental rethinking of our relationship with animals and nature in a post pandemic world, while simultaneously addressing our environmental problems holistically.
In a Vegan World, we can sequester more carbon on the land that is freed up from animal agriculture than all the carbon added to the atmosphere from fossil fuel burning and land use changes since 1750.
Many of us are already Vegan in our hearts. The birthing of a post pandemic Vegan World will likely be viewed as the “greatest transformation in human history,” even though it is just a return home to who we really are.
Cutting forests to provide grazing for animals is deadly. According to the Brazilian government, 62% of deforested areas become grasslands to feed cattle.
And while many major companies are moving toward forest-friendly business models, there is no room for complacency.
In 2019 the rate of deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon rose for the first time since 2008 and we lose an area roughly equivalent to the size of Panama in forested land every year.
Deforestation could lead to almost a quarter of the humans on the planet losing their homes or livelihoods.
Deforestation and the destruction of forest habitat is the leading cause of extinction on the planet.
Trees, forest plants, and forest soils store massive amounts of carbon and when cut his powerful carbon sink is no more and is released as CO2 and methane. Forest loss contributes about 15-20% of all annual greenhouse gas emissions.
In the past thirty years, about 18% of the Brazilian Amazon has been lost. A majority of this land has not been replaced by new forest but by pasture land for cattle.
