10 Billion Animals Killed A Year For Food: Are vegetarians saving the world?

No. Screw vegetarians and give me my T-Bone Steak!

Carnivores are killing the world... according to scientists anyway. 10 billion animals are killed a year, just for food consumption by people like you and me. In 2006, United Nations scientists argued that killing billions of animals for food is one of the top 3 significant contributions to environmental problems. More than gas guzzling vehicles or energy wasting consumers. If you believe in Global Warming, get this... raising animals for food has caused more global warming than transportation!

    Pigs, beef cattle, and other animals are frequently bred and raised in large quantities for the sole purpose of using them for food.

    the population of the planet is huge eh, and God did create humans as omnivores ...? and as well ... plants are also alive. Murdering more plants may probably hasten global warming faster than animals do ...

    ... instead of not eating meats .. perhaps the UN should try to convince the planet to plant more trees without requiring any funding to do it eh? I mean, the UN hires and pays genocidal freaks ( Mugabe -islam ) who have restricted travel rights worldwide because of how evil genocide is eh? Perhaps the UN, instead of encouraging more stupidity worldwide by proofing itself as stupid... should focus on NON funded ways to promote a world with far more forrests

    I doubt much of what the UN presents as " science " these days .... they ( UN officials ) are largely politicians attempting to "connect" with people they hope they can fool into raising a cry to assist UN political causes to grab/raise funds from stupid nations such as the USA et al.

    I hope the USA leaves the UN quite soon and removes/boots/ousts them from the USA forever, never allowed to return or take one more tax dollar from them, ...

    We need to remove them from the USA and use the savings to pay off the debt Obama/Sotero and our bi-partisan congress has forced us to owe to the communist chinese who hate freedom.

    and pleasantly , along the way , plant many many more trees :)

    Not to mention your big fat body is from turning your it into a grave yard of animals. You personally kill about 200 animals a year if you are eating meat. These animals suffer cruel conditions the best part of their lives is the day they are killed because their suffering ends. Animals raised for food suffer hellish conditions their entire lives they know fear misery and pain at the hands of their human tormentors. View "Meet your Meat" on YouTube.com for more proof.

    well though, if he was schooled in American schools who try mightily to remove the most important element of logic ( IE; common sense ) from the children of public schools these days ( political PAC unions , eh ? ) then he lost an immense amount of time ... so he could learn to check boxes on standardised tests ... is it truly his fault?

    Yes, it is if he refuses to go beyond what his union teaching staff taught him... he is more than that .. and hopefully his own parents ( as opposed to scholastic American PACs ) prayed he would do so.... he is an adult now eh?

    ( Mind you, Graybeard I am not white just so you know.. ) ...

    ths nonsense about food ignores how humankind is created ... or how to go about changing climate as much as possible .... by use of simply planting trees and as many different plants as humanly able .... without use of tax dollars or legislation ...

    you know .. common sense... eh? :)

    Truth be known, slavery is as old as mankind itself. Slavery was introduced to the New World by a Spainard, his name escapes me (I studied History a very long time ago) but I will locate it. He wasn't white either.

    Blacks in Africa captured other Blacks in regional / tribal wars and sold them to opportunists to carry to the slave markets. Many of the slave ships were captained and crewed by Moors.

    My point is, everyone from that time period shares equally in the guilt of the act. No one today has anything to do with it. It's been over for 150 years. No one in this country has been a slave, owned a slave or engaged in the business of selling slaves. People need to get on a relevant issue.

    It doesn't in any way justify their suffering. World wide 53 BILLION animals suffer and are killed for food each year. This doesn't count animal skins, Animal testing and experimentation aka vivisection , and cruelty to animals. Wake up! see what you're really are doing. Find out what has been skillfully hidden from your view. Get involved. Look into how animals are raised for food. I think that you, like most people would be shocked and appalled when they find out the truth.

    Im Not a vegetarian, but if it was lefted up to me, meat would be out lawed. These farmere and the meat packing companies put so much junk in the meat, til I'm at the point I don't care if I eat meat. Befor I cook my meat I soak it in vingar, lemon juice, and hot water for ten min. Then I soak it again in salt water, and wash it in clear water. and cook it well. Beef I cook it form 40-2hr. until it well doone and falling apart. Chicken I do the same way. and if I'm boiling the chicken the first water I pore off and start again. The meat is not clean.

    Plants are also living things. If you don't kill anything, you'll starve yourself or someone else to death. That would be an act of murder.
    Are you a Quaker? if not, then presumably you'd kill in order to defend yourself or someone else. You might even kill total strangers who have never done you any harm, simply because someone told you that you needed to do that in order to defend your country.

    hg .. sorry but your arguments just do not hold up. If you and others choose to be veggies that is fine for you ..but do not force others to obey your dictates ...

    You probably murder plants everyday just by walking, bacteria by washing your body , insects by use of a vehicle ....... the home you dwell within probably occupies space once used exclusively by plants hundreds of years before you, a human, came along ... kept them at bay so you could steal their land and let them wither and die.... do you see? Life on this planet is life .... just be glad no one murders you to eat your flesh ?

    it is rather like Obama/Soteros wife with her huge fat rear end and her personal trainer ( at tax dollar expense more than likely ) explaining to America that America is too fat and we must all obey her dictates and eat properly .... there are hundreds of pictures of her and her husband online eating up meats and fats and anything they can stuff into their faces at others expense... he has a faster metabolism apparently than she and stays skinny while she seems to have quite a caboose.... but she wants everyone else to obey her and be skinny .....

    God created humans as omnivores and that incredible diversity across the vast tableau of food on this earth gave humans the ability to survive .. as a part of this planets lifeforms in this universe.

    It will be alright . Plant lots of trees and beautiful useful gardens in your lifetime , do not trash your neighborhood ..

    and do not tell all the rest of the people to go against how they are created.... as omnivores. You can do that of course for yourself..... but my family shall still eat meats and plants and murder much bacteria and accidentally kill plenty of insects etc in their lifetimes and our future generations etc etc etc just as billions upon billions of prior humans and animals and plants themselves and insects etc etc have done throughout the aeons of world and human evolution....
