That was a good sentence! The article did have its good points.

I have a lot of carnivore-leaning friends. Many tend to be curious about veganism yet also skeptical. I've had decades' worth of conversations about the topics covered in the article. So I tend to think in terms of what is enlightening versus what tends to just antagonize people. Usually, it helps to let the facts make your argument for you. The more in-your-face approach is great for a vegan and vegan-curious audience, but if you use that style with meat eaters, you need to support it with the right kind of substance.

That's just my take on it!

There is a lot of stuff going on in my own life and in the world that could skew my perception, so take my conclusion with a grain of salt.

--------
anyway that line, " — only around half of Americans say they are trying to reduce their meat consumption."
I was not aware that it might be around half. It doesn't surprise me but this might have been the first time I saw it in print. And with a reference!
And the reference actually says,
  • 54% of US adults say they are “currently trying to consume fewer animal-based foods (meat, dairy, and/or eggs) and more plant-based foods (fruits, grains, beans, and/or vegetables).”

That's more than half! Granted, "trying" and "fewer" may not mean all that much but .... still.

One of the other results was also very heartening.
  • 49% of US adults support a ban on factory farming, 47% support a ban on slaughterhouses, and 33% support a ban on animal farming. * The support for the latter two exceeded even researcher expectations.
Although the next two results were disheartening. But they showed that perhaps with more education we could change that.

Anyway, what I'm getting at is something I have been saying for years. We are approaching the tipping point.

--------

* I wonder where these adults think they will be getting their whoppers and nuggets without factory farming, slaughterhouses, and animal farming. I have a feeling they didn't' think this question thru. But then again these are the same idiots who thought "they usually buy animal products 'from animals that are treated humanely,”

Hmm! So the linked study used Ipsos to collect their data.


They seem to offer paid surveys - people register and fill out surveys in exchange for gift cards and such, though at a glance, I gather that they may collect data in other ways as well.

Those numbers seem really high to me and I have to wonder if the sample is representative of the US population or not. And what other variables could be at play.
