To stop global warming and preserve a future for children, we have to reduce the burning of fossil fuels, as well as greenhouse gas emissions released from the production and consumption of animal products. And we must put livestock production on the agenda of climate talks.
"An argument for combating climate change through modifying agricultural practices and eating habits.
Seenarine (Education and Empowerment Among Dalit (Untouchable) Women in India, 2004) argues for a meatless diet as a key tactic for reducing greenhouse gases, minimizing weather changes, and improving human health. The book provides a dense overview of current climate science and policy, and reviews the impact of rising temperatures on not only the physical environment, but also economics, international relations, and gender politics. The reduction or elimination of meat consumption (referred to here as “carnism”) is held up as the solution to a thoroughly researched, footnoted argument. Seenarine draws on a variety of research to present a solid case for recognizing meat production as a significant factor in greenhouse-gas emissions." - Kirkus Reviews
