Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Is Meat-Eating Still a Taboo?

Frances Kissling, an independent consultant on ethics for NGOs and a former president of Catholics for Choice; and Peter Singer, professor of bioethics at Princeton University and a laureate professor at the University of Melbourne, wrote an excellent piece about the incredible fact that meat was served at Rio+20 meeting earlier this month, where leaders from around the world gathered to discuss sustainable development as well as the environmental problems that the planet faces.
 
Kissling and Singer find it terribly ironic and inconsistent to gather and discuss environmental problems while at the same time enjoying food containing the flesh of animals. After all, animal agriculture is one of the most destructive industries on the planet. From global warming to air, water and soil pollution, the problems that animal-based diets cause are too great to ignore. Please visit To fix the climate, take meat off the menu
