I believe in the responsibility we hold as those who live on planet earth to actively look for methods to reduce our carbon dioxide accumulation. Namely, I believe that the reduction of meat consumption is the right step towards contributing towards more sustainability in the environment by reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
I envision a world where everyone (including those who do it for ethical reasons) choose to reduce their meat consumption in response to learning about the negative consequences meat consumption has on the environment. I envision a world where our carbon dioxide emission levels are significantly reduced due to the efforts of people reducing their meat consumption.
I want to start an educational movement to raise more awareness of the environmental consequences of meat consumption. As the ethical reasoning is already well established and known, more light needs to be brought towards the alternative reasons, and possibly the more important reason why we should do so, from an environmental perspective. There is already so much attention brought to reduce carbon dioxide by reducing the usage of vehicles however many do not know that methane gas emitted from livestock is actually more destructive than the carbon dioxide from vehicles. Namely, I want more exposure on how there is a lack of awareness of this knowledge due to the government fearing the loss of their supporters as mentioned in the Cowspiracy documentary. I wish to do so by bringing more media attention by contacting media sites and sharing related posts on my instagram to educate others, as well as have more people recognize what is going on at the governmental level. This would hopefully inspire others to reduce their meat consumption and in turn help the environment as a whole.
