“We must change food production to save the world...and shift towards a vegan and vegetarian diet”
So states the Intergovernment Panel for Climate Change.
The report goes on: “In addition, about half of all emissions of methane, one of the most potent greenhouse gases, come from cattle...” The report could go on to say that we slaughter 50 billion farmed animals every year and that this cruelty is reflected in the systematic way we are destroying the earth.
We, the Vegan Organic Network, have been promoting veganic farming and living for more than 20 years. The veganic system incorporates, care of the soil, agroforestry, crop rotation, green manures, plant based compost - all the sustainable methods that meet the IPCC recommendations if we are to avoid climate catastrophe.
