No Meat Week: Help Stop Global Warming!, 278°

http://www.thepoint.com/campaigns/no-meat-week-...

Did you know that if every American who eats meat daily decided to have one meat-free day a week, it would be the equivalent of taking 8 million cars off the roads?

• Animal agriculture causes about 18% of global human-induced green-house gas emissions

• Livestock produce 30-40% of total methane gas emissions

• Livestock occupy 30 percent of ice-free land on the planet, a major cause of deforestation

• Industrial meat production relies heavily on fossil fuels through fertilizer manufacturing and global transport

The emerging global warming crisis requires both personal change and industrial accountability. In addition to energy conservation, each of us can also limit our contribution to global warming by eating less meat and calling for a more sustainable livestock industry.

The goal of this one-week meat-fast is to provide a platform to raise awareness about how meat-consumption directly contributes to climate change.

How about hunting for your own food?
Much more eco-friendly... and if you're happy to eat the meat of a dead animal, then you should be prepared to take the responsibility to kill it, no?

As stated in the article "industrial livestock" is a huge source of greenhouse gases. like corn fed feedlot beef that people buy because it is cheap. Grassfed beef is a carbon -sink- . Pastureland has been shown to -permanently- sequester carbon, unlock forests who loose much of their carbon when they burn. Grasslands lock it into the soil. Permanently. Like the yellowstone coalition says,"cows not condo's".

Support your local producers.

Plants die too. Are killed too. ever read 'the secret life of plants' or spend a couple of days in an aspen grove, really listening? You can't assume pain isn't felt simply because you don't hear the scream.

Livestock can be a valuable tool in restoring desetified lands. Did you know that the leading cause of desertification is NOT animals, but crop production. By eating vegetables only, you increase fertilier consumption (based on fossil fuels), pesticide consumption, and the destruction of rainforests. Soybean production is the largest source of rainforest destruction. So, grow your own veggies and meat, and solve both problems simultaneously.

Anyone that lives in a city and says don't eat meat because of environmental impact is a hypocrite. Vegetable production uses more fossil fuels than cars and causes deforestation and desertification.

Livestock are important tools for restoring desert land in brittle areas. By supporting responsible meat production, like free range cattle and chicken, you are encouraging the restoration of the environment. Eating soybeans destroys the rain forests.

I did this for a couple of months but due to various reasons am finding it very difficult to maintain. I will still try but can't commit right now.
Keep up the good work.

havent had any in 12 years... but i honestly don't think every person will be their healthiest by going completely meat free. some people do need meet a couple times a week...

Abraham C: I think you make the mistake of lumping all meat production together.

Hunted meat probably has the lowest eco-impact of any meat as it does not require changing habitat.

Grass fed meat is probably next.

Absolutely worst is feed lot raised meat.

You say that vegetable production uses fossil fuels. Yes that it is true. However, you're forgetting that feedlot raised meat needs to have a whole lot more vegetable matter generated. For every food unit that comes out of a feedlot, approx 20 food units go in. All those inputs needed mechanisation (and oil)... and all those other bad things you mention.

A vegetarian ends up eating less crops than a feedlot meat eater by a factor of 5 or so.

Livestock can be a valuable part of the agricultural system. For example, flat lands that are suitable for crops can have be rotated with pasture with livestock to regenerate the land. The marginal (hilly and rocky) lands that are not suited to cropping can be used for grassland grazing. The boggy stuff can be used for fish farming. Chickens and ducks can provide vital pest management functions as well as supplying meat and eggs.

Kebanyakan orang biasanya mencari film film yang di inginkannya di Ganool, Ganool memang menyediakan banyak film terbaru gratis, namun baru baru ini kami menemukan bahwa ada sebuah website film baru gratis yang bernama Avanda Film, yaitu sebuah website yang di bangun oleh pemuda kelahiran pada tanggal 24 Juni 1999 di Lhokseumawe, Aceh. untuk mendownload atau Streaming Film Bluray Download Film Terbaru Full Movie Online Streaming Gratis sekarang juga.

Dia Seorang bocah yang memulai karir nya sebagai Blogger pada akhir tahun 2008, saat itu dia masi duduk di bangku kelas 3 MIN Kutablang, Lhokseumawe, dia mendapat banyak apresiasi dari kerabatnya atas kemampuannya di bidang komputer, itu adalah sekilas tentang Muhammad Avanda Alvin, kini kita akan kembali membahas sebuah website yang di bangun olehnya pada tanggal 19 Juli 2015 yaitu website yang membahas segala niche atau topik bergenre Film (Movie).

Website tersebut menggunakan Domain .com TLD yaitu http://www.avandafilm.com yang di belinya melalui hosting yang servernya berada di Indonesia, website tersebut juga merupakan salah satu website yang membagikan Film Fast and Furious 7 yang baru baru ini menjadi salah satu Film Box Office Terbaik di Dunia yang diperankan oleh Aktor Paul Walker yang telah meninggal dunia pada 2009 silam.

Furious 7 mulai serentak ditayangkan di beberapa negara sejak pekan lalu. Film yang mengenang mendiang Paul Walker ini bahkan langsung mencetak rekor box-office di sejumlah negara. Antusias yang luar biasa ini ternyata tidak terjadi di “darat” saja namun juga di jagat maya.

Dari laporan situs Variety, sejak ditayangkan pekan lalu Furios 7 telah diunduh lebih dari 2 juta kali di seluruh dunia melalui jaringan torrent. Jumlah itu terhitung sejak Kamis, 3 April 2015 hingga Senin pukul 6 sore waktu AS. Demikian menurut Excipio sebuah perusahaan yang rutin memantau aktivitas download dari film bajakan.

Tetapi masalahnya, apakah situs unduhan film gratis tersebut benar-benar legal? Yang pasti perilaku unduh film gratis melalui internet secara ilegal itu akan merugikan pihak film dan melanggarkan hak cipta. Lalu adakah situs yang menyediakan film gratis dan legal?

Tentu ada. Menurut penelusuran saya Muhammad Avanda Alvin dari berbagai sumber, ada beberapa situs yang menyediakan ribuan konten film yang dapat diunduh secara gratis dan legal yaitu seperti situs Download Film Terbaru Avanda Film.

Avanda Film membagikan seluruh Film Baru Gratis secepat mungkin, kamu dapat menggunakan SSH atau bahkan RDP juga VPN apabila kamu ingin mempercepat download film baru gratis tersebut, tunggu apalagi? Sang Master SEO Muhammad Avanda Alvin telah merekomendasikan Website Download Film Terbaru untuk kalian semua secara Gratis, Download dan Nonton Streaming Film anda sepuasnya hanya di Avanda Film.

Download film gratis terbaru 2015 bisa juga dilakukan via situs The Pirate Bay (TPB). Sebuah situs yang sediakan file hosting via torrent. Tak hanya film (Movie) saja, TPB juga mengorganisir berkas lain seperti Audio, Video, Games, dan masih banyak lagi. Jadi silahkan download film gratis terbaru 2015 di Avanda Film.

Sebelum mengunduh film terbaru di TPB Anda membutuhkan sebuah software pengunduh yang bernama BitTorrent. Sebab berkas torrent berbeda dengan berkas unduhan lainnya yang biasa diunduh via aplikasi downloader. Sebut saja IDM.
