Sacramento, California. “As wildfires are raging across the state, triggered by the climate crisis, PETA Emeritus Director Pamela Anderson is fighting to save lives again, this time in real life. First Malibu safeguards star donated $ 100,000 worth of vegan foods to PETA’s Methane Compensation Starter Kits the group sends out to California Legislatures, each of which contains not only foods that, unlike meat and dairy products, are not contributing to the climate crisis, but also See also a collection of matches labeled “Code Red! Forest fires are raging. Not vegan? Basically, you get to the point. “
The UN Climate Group has warned that widespread cuts in greenhouse gas emissions are needed to prevent a “red code for humanity.” Since animal husbandry accounts for almost a fifth of all anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. and uses huge amounts of water, contributing to droughts and the spread of wildfires, PETA and Anderson have packed kits with tofu, non-dairy cream, vegan dark chocolate, vegan jerky, soy seeds, snack recipes and more to help legislators go vegan to fight fires and save the planet.
“Our planet is on fire because of animal husbandry, so if you’re not a vegan, you could have lit a match yourself,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “PETA kits will help state legislators lead by example and save animals and the earth by becoming vegan.”
In addition to harming the planet after the point of no return, the meat, egg and dairy industries are terribly cruel to animals that live a miserable life in close confinement before their throats are slashed in slaughterhouses.
PETA, whose motto is in part that “the animals are not ours to eat or otherwise abuse” – opposes arrogance, a worldview focused on human superiority. For more information please visit PETA.org or subscribe to the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram…
