Is the real cause for our damage here on earth due to our destruction on animals? Fossil fuels? Pollution? Not recycling when we should? Or is there another underlying theme that we are ignoring? Or maybe not giving it much attention. Not preaching against veganism or anything like that but is that what the real issue here is? What about overpopulation of the human species? We have 7 billion people here and it’s growing. The reason why we cut down forests for land is for the sake of feeding all of us so we can all be fed. The reason why we dig up more oil is because “more people” are driving. If we didn’t have so many people maybe we wouldn’t have to torture animals for the sake of efficiency. If the studies about factory farming are true and that is what is causing most of our issues, veganism is great for supporting all the people we have for the planet so we don’t destroy it and also, have more land for better use or have it for wildlife so they have more habitats to live on. Maybe we should stop having so many babies. Or just start having one child and no more than that. Thoughts?
