My name is Roland Windsor Vincent. I'm an attorney and an envronmental and animal rights activist. In conjunction with the Farm Animal Reform Movement (FARM), we have set up this page to expose the disastrous effects of animal agriculture and the animal slaughter industries on the environment in general, and on global warming in particular.
The current political rhetoric among candidates for office, environmental leaders and a growing segment of the general public suggests that politicians may attempt a "quick fix" for global warming that focuses solely on Big Oil and Big Coal, ignoring the substantial contribution of the animal agriculture industry in producing greenhouse gasses. According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, cattle alone produce more greenhouse gasses than do automobiles! (See my Blog)
We believe that any proposed solutions should be universal in scope and address all sources of greenhouse gas emissions!
Whether you are a vegan, a vegetarian or an omnivore, this page is for you. You can help stop global warming by taking action to place animal agriculture on the public's radar! We all have to examine our lifestyles in light of the science that demonstrates we are killing the Earth!
One of the most effective things you can do to reduce your carbon footprint is to reduce your intake of meat! Eliminating meat one day a week is the equivalent of cutting your gasoline consumption by 14%!
