Letter from Arthur Poletti about Farmed Animals and Slaughterhouses - 28 Nov 2007

Dear Frank & Mary:

This is the kind of wonderful news that signals the possible, beginning of the end, for animal factory farms and slaughterhouses.

Worldwide awareness about the many catastrophic disasters caused by the livestock industry is beginning to get the attention of millions of animal flesh eaters, thousands of government leaders, and many more save the earth organizations throughout the world.

Together they could ultimately shut down the number one cause of global warming much sooner then anyone thought possible.

A massive wave of support for kindness and a full life for all farm animals may soon spread throughout the world.

Please forward this information to anyone you think should read it.

For the sake of all animals.

Farmed Animals Top Priority for Bali

The developed world's passion for meat and dairy is driving global climate faster than all our transport systems. The United Nations Climate Change Conference in Bali over the next two weeks must face up to this reality. The developed world must lead the way in quickly moving away from animal farming to climate-friendly vegan growing.

Nigel Winter, CEO of The Vegan Society, said today, "Our livestock create far more global climate change gas emissions than all our transport systems combined. Cows belch vast clouds of methane, a global warming gas over 20 times as powerful as carbon dioxide. Cutting out beef and milk is great for the planet - and for people and cows!"

The UN say that livestock cause 18% of our global climate change effect - transport adds just 13.5%. A balanced vegan diet has a carbon footprint 1 tonne smaller than the typical UK diet. Vegans enjoy a wide range of foods, such as vegetable curries, refried bean tortillas and vegan lasagna.
