Eat less meat on channel 8

Recently there was a TV drama on channel 8 showing how eating less meat helps the planet. Strange that many people feels it's ok to go veg to save the planet, but not the animals... are we really that uncompassionate?

But any smart Vegan will tell you that what you choose to eat has profound impact in many different areas. It is challenging to advocate vegetarianism or Veganism and touch on all of those areas.

That is, maybe sometimes advocacy works best when it is focused.

The advocacy to be a vegetarian is great. I watched the video and that is one informative video. Thank you for sharing it. I agree to all the she said.

Well, I think that people who are more receptive to go veg to save the planet do so for a selfish reason as human will likely feel the most impact if Earth is destroy.

Patrick: That is true, what we eat has impact on many areas besides compassion for animals. On being more compassionate or not on a veg diet, this is something I find turns more people off. People don't like it when it is implied that eating meat is uncompassionate. But they are more ready to accept that eating less meat helps environment. Maybe this is because it is said in a positive way or not so absolute as "No Meat.".

Ed: Good point.
