Sažetak:
Although Al Gore set out a host of unpleasant truths about the planetary phenomenon of global warming in his recent book An Inconvenient Truth (2006), surprisingly enough, as PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) pointed out, he still did not expound at any length on the fact that global warming is also caused by the meat industry, which is one of the major factors contributing to the environmental disaster. Namely, as emphasised by the prominent geophysicists Gidon Eshel and Pamela Martin of the University of Chicago, the greenhouse-gas emissions from livestock reared for human consumption make a major contribution to global warming, and a transition from the "standard American diet" to vegan eating habits would be a far more productive way of reducing global warming than even a changeover from standard automobiles to the more efficient hybrid models (cf. Gidon Eshel, Pamela Martin: "Diet, Energy and Global Warming". Earth Interactions, Vol. 10, 2006 ; http://blog.peta.org/archives/2007/03/clearing_a_few.php?c=weekly_enews). It should be stressed that 17 percent of methane emissions in Europe derive from livestock manure. In other words, an adult cow produces some 60 litres of methane per day. And further: tropical rainforests are being destroyed at such a rate that each year a further area the size of Britain disappears, largely with the purpose of obtaining pasture land for livestock rearing or for cropland to grow Soya for livestock feed (cf. the documentary film Devour the Earth, The Vegetarian Society, UK, 1995). One can link the hushing-up of the truth about global warming mentioned above connected with the (mass) farming industry with another example that demonstrates the cynical strategy of the powers-that-be: the American oil company, Exxon Mobil, the largest and consequently the most powerful one, paid lobbyist groups US$ 16 Million to spread the false information that greenhouse-gasses did not have an influence on the global warming of the Earth.
