Truthfully, the quote comes from September 11th, 2008, not today, but it’s STILL good:
[I]f the ecosystems of this planet in our oceans die, then we will die. We will not survive [...] when people say, “Y’know, what’s this gotta do with people?” It’s got everything to do with people. One of the things that Karen brings out in this book is the incredible pollution that’s caused by, pig farming for instance, the contamination of the groundwater, and, y’know, everybody and the government authorities just sort of ignore this. The meat industry produces more global greenhouse gas emissions than the entire automobile industry. In fact, a vegan driving a Hummer contributes less to greenhouse gas emissions than a meat-eater riding a bicycle. And people just don’t think about that.”
This quote comes to you from Please Do Not Tap On The Glass.
Granted, there are other factors. And there are degrees. A vegan who lives alone in a mansion, drives a Hummer, is a frequent flier, uses disposable everything, never turns off appliances or lights, and deliberately pollutes waterways is probably more devestating to the environment than a meat-eater who lives relatively sustainably. However, how many vegans drive Hummers? Really.
