Weekday Vegetarian:
An Ethical Dilemma

Zoe Weil, president of the Institute for Humane Education <http://www.humaneeducation.org/> explains why she wasn't particularly thrilled upon watching the 4-minute TED talk, "Why I'm a Weekday Vegetarian" by Treehugger.org founder Graham Hill.

Hill explains in this short talk why, in spite of having full knowledge of the devastating effects of animal agriculture on the environment, our health and farmed animals, he decided to stick to a plant-based only on weekdays.

Weil clearly and concisely raises the ethical dilemmas associated with this decision and wishes Hill set better ethical standards for himself and the rest of the people who look up to him. Please visit The Ethical Dilemma Inherent in the Weekday Vegetarian Plan:

I think Mr. Hill shows weakness of character and dubious ethics in trying to rationalize his eating of God’s farmed animals “only” on weekends in spite of having the knowledge of the devastation that agribusiness causes in God’s Creation. It’s sad that a person who many people admire for his environmentalist work chooses to let his taste buds trump his ethics.
